  • Description


    Welcome to our Oasis. I have a lovely old farm in Algarve Portugal located in the mountains close to nature.
    Step outside under a million stars and listen to Owls at night. Hike during the day, through the ancient cork oak trees clothed in moss and lichens following the trails of the wild pigs

    There is a lovely alternative scene with lots going on from yoga, ecstatic dance, glass blowing workshops and jams.

    Rustic and rural eco B&B opens April 1st. Before that i want to get as much done as possible in the construction of the 3 new rooms on the top floor. so far we have half the roof off and are finishing the extended walls an some internal room walls , hopefully by next week start to get roof on. Timber , plaster board, OSB , cork and then tile.

    Need a person fit, strong and with experience in these type of skills.

    I offer you a private and peaceful caravan on the land with cooking facilities and little hot shower. You can also have a bath on weekends in one of the guest rooms. we will cook you a lovely lunch.
    Join our team of locals and travelers as we prepare for the spring and opening the business.

    If you would like to stay longer , you will need to have your home on wheels.

    You will learn what its like to buy an old farm and remodel it. How to create a business that runs ecologically and sustainably. How to do construction the portuguese way.

    The weather is fantastic right now, but we can still expect some cold starts to the day and hope to have much more rain, so bring gear to keep you warm and dry

    Oasis land is magical and sacred, it is drug free.

    minimum stay one month
