We are a retired British couple, ex airline crew. We lived in SW France for 16 years and then moved to Portugal, it’s sunnier and warmer! . This is a quiet rural area about 30 mins from The coast, 5 minutes from São Bartolomeu de Messines and 20 minutes to Silves. We’re looking for a single person or a couple to help with gardening and general maintenance. We enjoy good food, cooking, entertaining and wine! We have a bit of a coffee addiction too! Also cycling and if you’re a couple we have a tandem which you’re welcome to use. We have a small pool. We also have a tiny old dog.
We speak English obviously and French. We’re happy to help you improve your french. We’re also learning Portuguese and have a great teacher.
We are looking for help to remodel our small garden, mostly relaying gravel paths and cutting back bushes and trees. We’re planning some home improvements too, so some experience with diy would be helpful but not essential.
Double bedroom with en suite shower and toilet. We generally eat our main meal in the evening and would be happy to share that time with you, other meals are help yourself, unless you particularly enjoy cooking in which case the kitchen is yours to use.
There is a small town nearby, it has a railway station with trains to Faro and Lisbon (2hrs away).
Also a bus service to Silves where there are plenty of great restaurants and cafés, also a magnificent Moorish castle. We have fibre optic broadband. We can almost guarantee the sun so if you enjoy laying by the pool this is the place for you.
