    Hi, thanks for looking at our profile! I hope you are all fine and in good health. We are still very careful in Portugal, but also very behind with the work in the farm. For the moment we prefere to host volunteers who travel with their own campervan. We have place on a campsite in the 8 ha. field of the horses behind the buildings in exchange of a few hours work a day.

    We will need help for taking care of the horses and other animals in the farm; stable training and socialising young horses, feeding, filling water and cleaning the stables, a lot of gardening and weeding, some repairs, painting, some fencing, some cleaning up and bring old stuff away for charity or recycling, some household... We also planted some young fruit trees and vegies who need some extra care.

    As we are off shore, we have electricity and hot water by a generator. Most of the time for only a few hours in the evenening. We have a mobile Wifi Modem. But we have a very nice farm, surrounded by hundreds of hectares unspoiled nature!

    We have 1 old lusitano stallion (30 y.), a rescue pony (3 y.) and a young lusitano stallion (2 y.). 3 adult lusitano mares in the field (20 y., 12 y. and 11y. ) with 2 young lusitano mares (2 y. and 1 y.),
    7 cats (4 Russian Blue, 1 Blue British Shorthair, 1 Blue point and 1 Turkish Angora)... and 2 dogs (Rafeiro do Alentejo and a Portugese breed guardian dog mix).

    The farm is located in a very quiet part of unspoiled nature. In the summer the volunteers can enjoy a lake to swim on a walking distance. A local bar is on 2 km and has also internet, a snooker, TV and cheap drinks, but for the moment closed. We go a few times a week to Coruche for groceries and also visit markets or festivals or so in the villages close by etc. when the situation is better again.

    Please note, we are not at the busy coast but in the quiet countryside in a part of central Portugal with a few habitants...
    If you like the city, beach(life) or luxury more than a calm green nature area, than look for another host... If you need a rest and to come back to yourselve, this place is the best. During the free time during the day you'll have time to relax, reading, yoga, writing, painting, drawing, going for a walk to the lake or walk with the dogs etc.). Sorry, the stallion is to old for horseriding and we are now more focussed on breeding in stead of riding.

    Please note, we have no meals, bathroom or hot water available. For this we prefer volunteers/campers who travel with their own campervan.

    Be welcome to stay with us!!!

    Alojamiento

  • Algo más...

    Algo más...

    People should have:

    - Responsibility and respect for people, animals and nature (no drugs or too much alcohol!!!)
    - Persistence, communication skills and a positive way of thinking....
    - No trouble with temporarily having less luxury and no fear of making their hands/clothes dirty (country life)
    - Experience with horses/animals (provide references if possible) is a plus, but people who want to learn this are also very welcome!
    - Experience with doing chores is good, but people who are willing to learn are also welcome! I like to teach working with tools!
    - No problem with colder nights in the winter, the heat in the summer, insects or less comfort....
    - No problem with female manager... ;)

    We are off shore (but we use internet) and that can be a surprising experience.

    We apriciate your help very much and wish you a good stay in the sunny heart of Portugal!

    We have a campsite and already hosted several campervans via park4night. In exchange of being here a few hours help a day is very welcome. For us this is at the moment the best deal with volunteers.

  • Podría aceptar mascotas

    Podría aceptar mascotas

    Campers with a dog can stay at the campsite where the horses are if the dog is on a line and dogs can run free in the paddock from the dog hotel. Please accept we have guardian dogs near the stables. We cannot host cats as we have cats here and breed Russian Blues.
