We are a British couple with a seven year old girl Living in the East Algarve for over 10 years.
We are currently in the final stages of renovating an old Portuguese farmhouse.
I used to work in the art department for the BBC in the UK. I am now involved in various building projects, property renovations and some photo production work.
Amanda used to be a TV Editor, she is now a full time mum who also runs a small ceramics business and enjoys a more spiritual take on life.
Ideally this project would suit a couple or 2 friends, however singles are most welcome.
We are looking for enthusiastic practical people to help us with our farmhouse renovations, gardening, landscaping and childcare.
If you Like kids and are interested in building, gardening, sustainable living and alternative energy this project is for you.
We are also Now starting to work more on the land, planting, rain water and grey water harvesting, planning a food forest and water conservation Techniques.
Anyone with knowledge in this field would be very welcome.
If you are a couple with the right skills and driving licence (or have your own vehicle) we have a small cottage 15 minutes drive from our house, remote and tranquil with amazing views.
Otherwise, Your accommodation will be a cabin with its own kitchen, dry compost toilet and solar shower or a caravan.
As a couple we give you 40 euros per week to buy your own provisions. With some meals at our house, depending on how busy we are.
The farm house is walking/cycling distance from Santa Catarina, our local village. Here you will find all amenities, cafes, bar, shop, bakery, bank, post office and pharmacy.
If you can drive (and we trust you!) we have an old car you can use to get around. We also have bikes you can use.
The Farm house is about 10 minutes drive from the beach.
This is a great opportunity to learn hands on with building projects, landscaping and gardening.
If you are arty and creative then there maybe some help needed with Amanda's ceramics business.
Hope to hear from you soon!
