  • Description


    Hi workawayers!
    We are seeking helpers from now until end of September, maybe longer!
    To help with general household maintainance, cleaning, cooking, gardening, building projects and what ever else might pop up in our daily life.

    We are a couple (Irish, Paddy and German, Isabel) who are looking for some help in our large house. We have a dog, a cat and chickens, so we are never alone but are always happy about some more company :-) We need some help since we offer some rooms to tourists during the summer (July til October). Paddy is a former head chef. He likes physical work and is doing a lot by himself. Isabel is a creative soul and likes to be outside, she is a graphic designer and a social media editor. Both of us are here to help you learn how we do things and have fun at the same time.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    There are plenty of opportunities to learn how to surf -We are located next to three different surfspots all learning levels - We have some coorperations with surf schools and surfshops so you can get a discount on rentals and lessons as well. You can learn how to brew Kombucha and besides all that you can learn a lot about ecological gardening and various plants since we have quite a bit of land where we grow some fruits, vegetables and herbs. And for all animal lovers we also hope you might enjoy some time with our cat, dog or chickens, just because they are kind of unique ;-) You can always get a bike to discover the portuguese countryside and there is also a famous hiking trail passing our village if you are a nature lover.
    So we hope you leave us with a heart full of sunshine and a mind ful of new experiences :-)

  • Help


    We ask you to help out for around 4 hours a day. We provide 3 meals a day (breakfast, lunch and dinner). We try and match you with the type of help that suits you. So far we need help with general cleaning, cooking, furthermore two daily dog (and cat) walks could be on your timetable as well. If you see anything that needs improvement and you want to help with, feel free to ask.

    We have a cosy camper and caravan for our helpers to call home while they are staying with us.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We had some volunteers in previous summers and we hope we can continue this project on workaway. We are looking for helpers who are travellers happy to socialize, bubbly, lively and love to chat with different people so we can create a bit of a familiar atmosphere and everyone (helpers included) feel a bit like home.

    We only take volunteers who are eating almost everything and don t have many special dietry requirements, since we cook mainly one big meal per day in the season and it is just very difficult when we have to cook 2 or 3 different meals for one dinner. Please save us both some time and only apply if you really eat almost everything!

    We are easy going and if you have a problem, just talk with us and we try to solve it with you. We appreciate honest and reliable people who can help us with the daily tasks. So If you think you can fit in under the portuguese palms/pines... feel free to send us a message :-)
