we are a family with 2 kids, a 11 years old football fan and a 2 1/2 years old lovely and charming power boy.
We live in a beautiful and calm area near Aljezur, Portugal west coast, in the middle of wild nature.
We keep 4 horses and Mogli, a Shetland pony. We are building up a riding school "being with horses" which focuses on gentle and natural being with horses. We need help, primarily by babysitting, but in case you have experience also by helping with the horses, or a combination of both. You can spend time with our horses if you like !
There is 20 yrs of experience in growing organic vegetables (for a living) in western Algarve,
We currently only have a small garden, but if you are interested and curious about growing vegetables in our region, please ask!

living in a beautiful and calm area close to the west Algarve beaches, experiencing the magic world of a young child, learning about being with horses, learning about life in southern Portugal, learning about growing organic vegetable in Portugal
babysitting our charming little son (he is so independent, just be a friendly companion, that is all it takes!), help with cooking and, if you have experience, help with our family horse riding school, some work on the land,
Our little one already speaks quite well, and loves books. We feel that a helper should speak at least basic German or Portuguese, at this point of Milo's development - verbal communication has become very important.
Also, we put one week minimum stay, but our preferred duration of stay is 2-4 weeks, in favour of continuity.
nice Caravan with electricity, cooker, Internet, Water; Bathroom with warm shower is located outside, 10m away.
We offer accommodation & full food for 21 hours of weekly help.
However we often don't cook warm meals for lunch, instead there will be fruit, nuts and sandwiches at lunch time.
we drive out frequently to Aljezur and can give you a lift, or shop for you. We have bicycles which you can use to go to Aljezur (3km) or a beach (10km). Some of our helpers use to go to the nearby beaches for surfing in the afternoon. We are very flexible and want our helpers to have a good time!
