    Bom Dia,

    An olde Portuguese house set in the quietest valley ever. One old cat (the boss!) and 2.5 hecatares of land that contains Avocado, Mangoes, Strawberry, Tomato, Ruccola (rocket) Peppers, Chillies, Apples, Lemons, Oranges and much much more, yes even Olives and Medronho! It has a river, a crystal clear water mine and 3 water pools. If you are travelling and have been working too much for too long,..this is the place for you. Wwoofing, Workaway and Helpex can be really exhausting (I know I started it 10 years ago and gave up!). Some people just see you as mere ´staff` and they will work you long and hard for little return for you. Some of the places I have lived around Monchique but also in other areas were, putting it nicely, atrocious. Treating humans like sheep, in and out, work and bye...heres a piece of grass in the winter, have a nice night in your tent while I sleep in the warm house. Bad rooms that are overcrowded and in need of a huge overhaul and remodernisation. Come relax here, tell me your stories of travelling, medidtate...not medicate, play some guitar, sing unto the hills and take some photographs (I am a professional photographer) eat, sleep and do something YOU want to here if you wish. Recharge....and be on your way...when you feel the time is right. Think of ´Medronho Hill´ as a lovely desert island in the stormy seas of Wwoofing, Workawaying and Helpexing. You can tent (its winter and are yoookrazee?!?!?) if you want, There is a spare (basic room) with mattresses and table, chair, fireplace (lots of wood here for open fires). Treat the place like your place...there is no boss here (...well maybe Rarmonkey the cat!)

    The owner (David) is in another country and is away for the next few years so I (Anthony) am looking after his land and house, Yes I could do with plenty of help, but thats your choice. I am from the UK, professional model photographer (but I do nature, and cats, too!), vegetarian, nonsmoker, play guitar and sing. I know almost EVERY place around here that wwoofer/workaway peoples go through. So you can meet me in Monchique and I will ask you ´what are you looking´ for and point you in the right direction. I also look after another place with a caravan on a piece of land with a house (on the other side of Monchique). So always plenty of options right here from me. I prefer to help people out more than just be another place on your travels...but I am cool with both. If you are in a place.....and you feel that it is just ´not you´....you need to get away from that for a while....ideal!!!! Give me a few of your words and emotions....

    Have better travels.

    I can teach you how to build with straw and clay structures. You can experience the simple life, slowed right down to deep meditational breathing speed. Old school cooking with firewood and fetching drinking water from the well. Experience peoples experiences through their eyes and listen...

    Chopping trees and wood. Building clay and straw structures. Building stone walls. Planting and maintaining vegetables and fruit, so much to pick! Just day to day living really, cooking eating tidying up. Relaxing, chilling and enjoy quiet peaceful times and hours of silence to some guitar and songs. The internet reception is quite OK here. Sometimes a bit iffy, but rare. There is a great library/bibblioteca in Monchique (free 4 days a week 1000-1800hrs) I am using it now! Also 1 supermarket (Intermarche, which is quite good too, also free).

    I have an olde Portuguese house (3 rooms, 1 kitchen, 1 a spare guests room...and the main room). i have lots of sleeping bags and blankets. The kitchen has electric light and running water. I have bikes to borrow but no car or driving license. The toilet is an organic compost one 🚽. The food situation is OK I have lots of pasta and tomato sauce! I drink Black Tea, but there is also Coffees, Hot Choclate and Barleycup/Malt/Cereal drinks. The olde cat (Boss) is called `Rarmonkey`!

    You will see Wild Pigs here (Javali, families with youg around) also Centipedes, and Eagles in the sky and other birds of prey.

    You will experience, stillness, quietnesss, regrounding and a sense of time reclaimed with a routine thrown into the bin....get up and go to sleep when you want....nothing is requested...if you want to create and work,...ask and I will let you know.

    Chill out on the outside´Skybed´ (in photos) in the sun.Swim in the water, Listen to the wind and look for shooting stars (the ´light pollution´ here is zero!). Enjoy your time here...

    II have bikes. We can go together or you go alone. There is a pizza party on fridays and its 20 km down to the beach or 6 km up to the village. I expect you to be super cool and chilled. I like that. If you like nature and a bit solitude then this might be the place for you.
