Help around the house
We live in almost one hectare land, just in front of the sea,up in the clift. Our lands are close to the village ( 7 minutes walk) . There are many activities to do around like beautiful trecking, canyoning, swimming under the waterfalls or in natural swimming pools,…
We produce our own cosmétics (soap for body & House, creams...)
There are many things to learn in the island, just being sourrounded by nature is a big experience. It is nice to know the local living way; and specially in summer time there are many local village parties and outside living all around the island.
We speak 5 languages so it is a nice time to practice them and learn some portuguese too.
About the help there are different possibilities:
- We are looking for help to clean Lands from invasive plants , It is a hard work so we look for people in good physical condition.
-We need help building furniture
-We will need help in the house, cleaning, cooking, organicing the house, washing clothes,tacking care of the kids,...Eventually we will also need help in the garden and with the animals but most of the time will be in the house.
- Sometime some cleaning help
We will ask help for 4 hours a day 5 days a week. Food is included on working days only, normally we eat all together once a day the food that we or you cook.
We would like to receive people for 2-3 weeks.
For the accomodation we have a land prepared with tents with see view; and it is possible also to build cabins if you know about construction.We have dry toilets and hot shower.
We dont have internet conexion at home but 5 min walk there is a bar with wifi.
There is public transportation (buses) conecting the main villages of the island, but they are not many per day.
It would be good for you to bring tents to the island because free camp is all around. We are flexible in our living way. In the same time we ask for common sense to mantain a nice armony in the property and also in the island.
Helpers must be in good fisical condition.
