  • Description

    Description

    Do you want to discover the genuine side of Portugal while giving a hand and learning new skills?

    We are a typical Portuguese family (Nuno, Susana, Rodrigo and Carolina) recovering a family farm. We really like to welcome people and we look forward to receive you in our farm. With us, you will be immersed into the real Portugal and have the chance to live an authentic experience.

    Our Vision: we want our farm to serve as an example of sustainable living, promoting active change in our society's habits!

    The farm is surrounded with nature; a beautiful area and wonderful views.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are located in Beira Alta region's heart, just beside the stunning Serra da Estrela National Park. Our village is called Algodres, in the municipality of Fornos de Algodres, district of Guarda.

    Our region has many cultural and gastronomic traditions such as sheep cheese, wine, olive oil, fruit trees, cold cuts and more. We also produce honey from our bees.

    Traditionally, in our region, people still practice agriculture sustainably, from generation to generation!

  • Help

    Help

    We need help with:
    - farm chores/taking care of the animals (a horse, bees, goats and chickens)
    - building/DIY (several houses to recover)
    - gardening (vegetable garden and fruit trees)

    It's always nice to get helped by skilled people but we are also happy to teach you our ways - we have work for all types of workers.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    The village of Algodres is 2km away; the center of Fornos de Algodres is 5km away (shops, bars, restaurants, train, bus and motorways).

    There's a bus from Algodres to Fornos de Algodres once a day (leaving in the morning and back in the afternoon).

    We follow the usual Workaway work schedule (5 hours/day - 5 days/week) but are very relax and flexible.

    We also like to take the time to enjoy the surroundings and encourage you to explore the area.

    We don't smoke but don't mind if you do (outside ;-)
