  • Description


    We are living (family with one child, 16 years old) in a rural area in the middle of Portugal. We need somebody to help my wife in the house and to do garden work also.
    We eat vegan food with many fruits and vegetables. Our rest day is Saturday. This day we do not work.
    The helper is invited to eat with us but there is an outside kitchen also.
    Internet WIFI is available. Shower, bath room is available.
    In June 2017 we had a very terrible fire in our region because of this we have much work for building up our garden and outside things.
    We have two very nice dogs.
    We have more then 100 fruit trees and we need help for that too.
    If somebody is fit in permaculture we would be very happy.
    Evelyn makes her first experience with recipes in row vegan. If somebody has experience in that it would be good also.
    We would like to build up walls from stone for our lakes (100.000l and 25.000l) to make them bigger. If somebody likes this work he can do for us.
    Summarized we are working in so many areas that we have work for nearly everybody who wants to spend some days or weeks in Portugal.
