We are a couple of travellers, who decided to settle down in Portugal, we live in a straw bale house in Portugal. We bought a land, that had been neglected for many years, we are trying to restore it, clear it, finish off our house and take care of our animals (horses, dogs, cats and piglets) while enjoying life.
DIY and building projects
Help with Eco Projects
Help around the house
Share our lifestyle, living in a straw bale house, surrounded by nature, see all the good features that come with it, horse riding and natural horsemanship skills available for those, who are interested.
Right now we need people who can smile, while cleaning the land, cutting down bushes, making swales, cleaning trees, transporting manure to the right places, watering the garden, beautifying around the house....the list is endless.
!!!Horse people / horse riders especially welcome!!!
At the moment we need gardeners, landscape artists, people, who enjoy working with earth and plants.
In general we need help with many things around the farm. Work here is physically demanding, you should be aware of that. New gardening ideas always welcome. DIY skills are a bonus. We need help exercising our horses too, so plenty of horse riding for a keen person.
A private room in our house, food preparation is shared and food consumed together. Please let us know about any non-standard food preferences prior to arrival.
We are not far away from a little town, where everything can be obtained, also close to mountains Serra de Estrela and Spain, many walks around available, a big lake for swimming also, plus many small Portuguese villages you can go for coffee and connect with the locals
Area around here is full with alternative communities and many interesting events happening at all times, festas, bio markets, concerts, etc.
