    Description

    I have a lovely old farm in Algarve Portugal located in the mountains close to nature.

    We close for winter in november. The salary is 800€ the job requires high energy, big smile and great organisation skills. We are a happy friendly small team and very supportive. You will need to speak english, and Spanish or preferably Portuguise.

    Opportunity to stay on and make a home , grow your own foods and get local work.

    I need help in the garden, with the vegetables, pruning, weeding, Land clearing, carpentry, planting, stone walls, experienced handyman. Chopping fire wood
    Also build stone steps, striming and watering, helping to build a shed, tadelakt, making a rammed earth floor, painting etc.

    Located 35 mins from south coast beaches and 50 mins to west coast surf beaches

    Its a farm in nature so the work is physical and demanding but we are Passionate about providing the best service to our land. it can get cold in winter down to 4 at night, we do not have much heating.

    You will need a vehicle, the village is 1km away nearest big town is Portimao.
