  • Description

    Description

    I am building a small retreat centre in central Portugal. I need help to organise the house, and work on the land. The house is in a stunning valley. There is an olive grove, a stream, 50 fruit trees, a yoga space and in the lower field we are building 2 round houses. I am within a wonderful community of foreigners many of whom live off-grid. There are river beaches, mountain walks, waterfalls, markets, and a lovely midieval town nearby. You will have your own room with a double bed and table x private shower room x your own kitchen. Good wifi and a scooter available to experienced riders for use during the daytime.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    There is a lot to learn about the land, building a retreat centre, the local off grid community. I am also a healer and if you are interested in holistic things this is a great place to be.

    On days off there are many lovely walks, river beaches, waterfalls, villages & towns to explore. Our local town with small river pool is 5 mins walk from the house. 10 minutes away there is a cafe an small shops. There are markets once a week where you can meet the community, have a jam, explore. The scooter is available to experienced scooter drivers which gives you access to all the local beauty spots, villages and cafes.
