    Description

    Hello! We are a family who lives on an organic farm near the beach in southern Portugal in a little fishing village
    Since 2004 we welcome volunteers from all around the world from few different organizations.

    We have decided to join this platform because we search for a ''Mary Poppins''!!!
    The volunteer should help the teacher with a group of children from 6 to 10 years old.
    We have a little project with 6/7 children in our valley and we do homeschooling,
    we offer accommodation in our farm in a 7 beds dorm or private caravan and food.

    Our food is mostly comes from our garden, we eat mostly Vegetarian/Vegan food.
    You must love animals we have a lot of free ''friend's'' here in the farm! And you must love a simple life and nature.
    We have a compost toilette and outdoor solar shower.
    From the farm you can go to the beach with a kayak paddling in the lagoon.
    For more information please ask, and we are happy to talk with you!

    Portugal has 3 airports (Porto/Lisbon/ Faro)

    PS: considered also the Seville (Spain) airport there are many cheap flights and 2 buses daily (except Sundays) that depart from Seville and arrive to Lagos

    From Seville is about 4 hours by bus



    Porto is distance from us 8/9 hours by bus from Porto if you decide to travel with bus or train take a bus/train to Lisbon and then another bus to Aljezur.*



    From Lisbon is about 5 hours by bus

    in Summer there is a bus that from Lisbon pass also here in Carrapateira



    From Faro is about 2 and half hours by bus

    from Faro if you decide to travel with bus or train take a bus/train to Lagos and then another bus to Aljezur*

    *ALJEZUR

    the bus direction Aljezur* you take only if you arrive in Monday or Friday and before 12:20)

    otherwise you take a bus from Lagos direction Vila do Bispo.*
