    Lookig for help...

    Our farm is looking for help with horses and somer renovation and construction work.

    We work on a horse farm located in the Janas - Portugal about 5km from Sintra.
    We live in Ericeira 2km from the main beaches of the World Surfing Reserve.
    We are talking english and spanish.

    The countryside is very beautiful for biking, surfing and horse riding of course.

    The farmhouse is located in Sintra (5km) with a lot of beach is the wonderful mountain of Sintra with its palaces and the house in Ericeira (2km) in the world surfing reserve ... All this at 20km os Lisbon

    We need help in many ways like stable work (feeding and cleaning), some maintenance work, there is actually always something to do, some adjustments (fences, woodshed..)and renovation works are waiting to be done too.

    It’s physically not the hardest work but you should still be fit and enjoy to work outside. Please note the work outside has to be done no matter what the weather is like!

    If you are an experienced horse rider you can also help with the horses.
