We have some chickes, vegetable garden and some medicinal herbs as a hobby, not for producton. We would like to receive workawayers for a rich exchange.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are an old couple full of stories to tell. Well, my husband isn't that social but I am and I enjoy being with people. Our place is at the same time well into the wilderness in a federal reserve AND less then 50 km from downtown São Paulo, the biggest metropolis of the south hemisphere with intense cultural life just one bus and one train away. There will be no shortage of options.

    As I said before, we receive host from Sao Paulo to spend the weekend with us. It's usual 20 to 30 people who comes on friday and leave on sunday. During the week we keep the place neat for their arrival. Painting, cleaning, cutting grass, general maintenance, gardening. You are more then welcome to presente some eco project to make the place even more attractive. We also need companinship and enjoy have people around. We would like to decorate some of our walls eith tile mosaic. This gift and others is more then welcome to bring some life and fresh air to our place. Hope to hear from you soon.

    This host offers a language exchange
    It's always a good idea to practice other languages. I'm opened to that. I thing languages carries more then just comunication, it carries culture, cosmovision, etc

    Shared and private rooms, depending on the season. Our water is of excelent quality and abundant. 3 meals a day will be offered.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Well, as I said earlier, we are very priviledged to be in the jungle in a very isolated area and AT THE SAME TIME very close to Sao Paulo, a mega metropolis with thousands of entertainment options. To get there, there is a bus with passes once every hour 500 meters away from our entrance. It takes 20 minutes to get to the train station of Franco da Rocha. The train arrives every 10 minutes and takes 35 minutes to downtown.
    Besides, our neighbourhood is friendly and safe. I'm sure you will have a great time.
