    hi. My name is Maura. I'm Irish and I have been living in Portugal for 25 years. I'm married to a Portuguese shoe designer and have 3 grown-up children.
    This is the third year we've had our guest house. It's in Darque near Viana do Castelo.
    The house is in a small village 4kms from Viana and 4 km from the beach.
    I work in Guimaraes which is 60 kms away.
    I need a reliable person who will clean the house and possibly be there to greet guests if I can't.

    I think it's an excellent opportunity for anyone who wants to make the most of their time in Portugal. There will be lots of time to go the beach which is 4km from the house. Viana do Castelo is also 4km away. We have bikes that are available, we also have surfboards.

    I would expect help with general housework. It's a 4 bedroomed house with four bathrooms. I need someone who would help getting the breakfast ready, possibly someone who enjoys cooking / baking. We are not a vegetarian household but we generally don't prepare meat. I'm not in Darque full time so the person would need to be independent and sociable as they would have to greet guests. Working mainly in the morning.

    We need help now getting the house ready. June, July and August are our busy months with visitors.

    We also have gardening that needs doing in Guimaraes. So it would be an opportunity to get to know another beautiful city in the North of Portugal. While working in Guimaraes we have a room in our flat.

    Working with us would have a variety of work and places. We enjoy meeting people and sharing interests and stories. We enjoy good food and wine.

    While working in Darque, you will be staying in a shared apartment less than 5 minute walk from the house. At the moment there's a young couple living in the apartment. It's 2 bedroomed. While working you can help yourself to food and generally prepare meals for yourself. At the weekend we'd be around and have meals together.

    Both Viana do Castelo and Guimaraes are very popular cities in N Portugal. There would be no shortage of things to do. Porto is an hour train trip from both.
