    Description

    The camino de Santiago and the caminho da Fatima are passing near by. It is a romantic mill beside a little river with waterfalls, terraces, fruit gardens and forest. A lot of shadowy spots and fresh water. An Oasis to cool down in the summer heat. Located just at the border between Portugal Norte and Portugal Centro. To Porto it's 40 minutes with car, to Aveiro about 30 minutes. The next beach is 17 km away. A lot of nice spots not too far away, like Arouca, Cascata da Cabreia or Bioria.
    The property consists of several buildings and two ha's of land. So there is always something to do. Help needed is maintenance inside as outside, cleaning, changing bedding, construction, gardening, forestry,...

    Accommodation

    Flexible volunteer arrangement, to be decided case by case (depending not only on the preferences of the volunteer, but a lot of factors, requirements, abilities, occupancy, ...):

    25 hours a week. Meal and accommodation for free.
    Or:
    15 hours a week, free accommodation, but self-supply.
    Or:
    A flexible "day to day" mix of both options.

    Available several beds (bunk beds and double bed) in three rooms. One to two volunteers. In summer not more than 1 volunteer.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Very important:
    Please, don't send me requests, when you haven't, in fact, yet decided what you want. I am tired of workawayers who reserve a place, make me refuse other inquiries of interested people, and then they don't show up, often even without letting me know. It's unfair to me, but also to the other volunteers, who missed the chance. I am committed to keep your reservation and I expect the same from you.
    People who abuse workaway for their comfortable and cheap living, or as a travel agency for free holiday trips, motto: no work, but fun, shouldn't apply because they do not last long here.
    I appreciate everyone's engagement, but I also figure out very fast, if someone is committed with the workaway-deal, or not.

    P.S. For the winter 19/20 I am as well looking for house-sitters.
