  • Description

    Description

    We are looking for two helpers from 2nd to 16th of August!

    We are a multicultural couple (Spanish/Italian) with a three year old kid, and we moved to Ilha das Flores, in the Azores. We just bought a property with sea view and we are starting a permaculture garden, a chicken coop, and some DIY house refit. Flores island, has been declared a "Biosohere Reserve" by the UNESCO because of the amazing landscapes, green mountains, volcanic lakes and waterfalls. But the main asset of this place, for us, is the social life: being one of the few "COVID free" spots in Europe, we haven't been limited in meeting friends and joining the several activities that are taking place here... Because the island hosts a nice international community of very active people growing their food, rising children, doing yoga, organizing dinners, playing music, repairing boats and building cabins... This is the quietest spot in Europe, but there is no way to get bored!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Beside having the opportunity to visit this amazing island, you will enjoy the relaxing sea views from our home and be part of our multicultural community: every week there are free yoga classes, dance sessions, meetings and BBQs where you can join us if you wish so. Depending on your interests, you could learn how to do home-made soaps and cosmetics, eatable ferments, jams, a proper Spanish tortilla, or get initiated to the secrets of the Italian cuisine...

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We are an open minded, nature lover couple from Barcelona: we used to travel by sailing boat, but now we are based in Flores waiting for our kid being grown enough to set sail again. We have little previous experience with work-away, but we are sure this can be a great win-win. Looking forward to meet you!
