  • Description

    Description

    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!

  • Help

    Help

    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.
