  • Description


    We are a Portuguese couple with 45 and 40 years old.
    She is a teacher and he is an electrical engineer.

    We have chosen to change our professional life, and we are now dedicated to a life in a rural environment with a new project of life.
    We begin in October 2019 and now we can say that we live in Paradise!!! lol

    We are located in a small village called Sernancelhe.

    It is an area, which is surrounded by chestnut trees, even in the Portuguese style.
    Not so far there are also a lake and a small rivers where we can swin in total privacy.

    The house is an old manor, recovered, full of history. It was the house where the Marquis of Pombal was born. This guy was notable for his swift and competent leadership in the aftermath of the 1755 Lisbon earthquake.

    We have two dogs and two goats.

    The village have a supermarket with the essential goods, and some coffes where it is made the acquaintance with the few local habitants.

    We offer food. The volunteers will take our meals with us and can always eat whatever they want.
    We are not vegetarians.
    Volunteers will also be able to cook if they wish.

    There are wifi connection with free access.

    Volunteers will have a very pleasant cultural, technological and linguistic experience.

    This project of life starting in October 2019 and new and young ideas will always be appreciated.
    We count on the creativity of our volunteers to improve our project of life.
    Volunteers will have all the flexibility of working hours, so they can have time for all the activities they want to do.

    We are a simple and adventurous couple who like to enjoy nature and have time to relax.

    Volunteers can also dedicate themselves to some small culture. They'll have space on the farmland for that.

    Our volunteers will be hosted in our house, with us.

    The house is huge, we have a lot of free rooms. So they will have complete privacy with a bedroom and a bathroom for volunteers only.
    We will only accept one group of volunteers at a time, so you will not have to share these spaces with other volunteers.

    Important: Sometimes we are naked in the house. We prefer volunteers who have no problem with their nudity or the nudity of others.
