We are a family with 1 child - 8 years old - 2 dogs, one cat 2 sheep's and and turtle!! We live in the countryside, next to the city of Setúbal. We've already worked in Spain and nowadays we live in Portugal. We like to travel and visit Galiza. We have a nice house, with lot of green space that we use for leisure and to cultivate some things - oranges, potatoes and many vegetables. This year, with all this rain we had an invasion of grass! We also have a pool with some green things around it.
We are an open family who likes very much to socialize with other cultures. We enjoy a nice meal with friends and planning new projects. We think that we can offer a nice perspective of the Portuguese people and about our culture (gastronomy and way of life, for example..) Our house is about 20 minutes driving from beautiful beaches.
In our area there's a lot to do regarding leisure: we live in a wine region (you can visit the oldest winery in Portugal and do some wine tours and wine tastes). The local cheese (Azeitão Cheese) is a must taste, well known for its flavor and texture. 10 minutes driving you have the Arrábida Mountain Range and its Natural Park. Biking is one of the most "natural" activities in the region.
We have full access to WiFi, using your own device (smartphone, pc, tablet, etc...).
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We need some help with our garden (cutting the grass, and everything related).
In the farm we need to clean all the green that is not necessary (grass and previous cultures that we have), prepare the terrain for the next culture and plant some new things. We have some orange trees, we need also some help cleaning them.
The pool also needs some maintenance with the water and with the surroundings greens. The wall around the pool needs to be painted. (UpDate: Pool is ready..!)
