  • Description


    I’m Cedric, a Belgian 33 years old engineer who turned into the tourism industry to host guests in rental houses that my grandparents renovated. The place is located near the beach, with lots of sun, in the south of Portugal.
    I’m looking for company and help during the lockdown and I’m happy to let you discover a new region inside a fabulous natural park: the Ria Formosa.
    If you’re interested to get some new experiences and like gardening, this could be your next stop!
    The volunteers will not be working for the business but help me maintain my personal house in exchange of accommodation.
