We bought a large property in the beach suburbs of O Porto and need helpers with maintenance experience like painting, plaster. Also gardening experienced and cleaning tasks.
We are mostly away during day time and after some introduction to the work, you should be hable to work independently.
You may feel lonely coming alone, because we don't eat at home or together.
We like outdoors, cultural events, healthy food and always try to see the positive side of life.
The property is quiet between woods and fields.
We have 3 cats free on site during day time.
Some cat sitting will be required if we travel for a few days.
