    Please Read Carefully:

    NEED HAPPY PEOLPLE TO WORK AND ENJOY - WE STILL IN A PROCESS OF REFURBISMENT

    We need strong people who wish to work and help us to fix things and have nice time!

    WE offer a bed and a Roof, there is water, eletricity, hot shower and a stove to cook...

    This very old farm with more than 200 years with a old house, a nice Casa da Eira and a very old nora, in Lagos, Portugal.

    And of course we want to preserve this antique things, i love old things: sick and tired of modernities...

    The Algarvian Monte ( house ) is almost ready - the house has + - 300sqm; we already have water, eletricity, gaz, 2

    bathrooms, beds and tables.. wifi...terrace etc...

    We have 3 bedrooms and at this moment what we need is someone who can help us in TOW AND PAINTING WALLS, FIX

    DOORS, WORKERS, CLEAN THE LAND AND GARDENING, MAKING SOME WALLS AROUND THE HOUSE ETC..ETC.. YOU
