  • Descripción


    We are a Portuguese/Irish couple who love nature and wildlife. We live on the farm but in a separate house which gives you plenty of privacy yet we are easily accessible if required. This is an opportunity to share some new skills and spend time with good company.
    It is a 3 hectare "Quinta" (smallholding) at the edge of the village of Vale De Prazeres, on an elevated site with stunning views. Our hope is to create a peaceful and sustainable environment that can be used and enjoyed by ourselves and others whilst respecting the nature around us and being as organic as possible. We speak fluently in Portuguese, English and French and some basic Spanish.

    Looking for short and medium term people who would like to stay and work on our property.
    We would want people who are willing to work 5 days a week for at max 5 hours a day. We are very flexible about working hours and tasks. We are looking for people to help mainly with reclaiming the land and forests, although there is also need for some minor building work. Some of the tasks include clearing of terraces, woodlands and paths and around the houses. Restoring paths, stone walls and cultivating terraces and a water mine. Build sheds for animals and storage, work on insulation for houses. It will be mostly physical work so you must have a reasonable level of fitness. If you come by train or bus, we can collect you from Vale de Prazeres or Fundao stations.
    You MUST have your own travel insurance.
