    Looking for a calm and proactive Workawayer (or two) who would help with managing a guesthouse and helping an older lady organize her life! :)

    Our casa is an old Portuguese Estate House that has been lovingly restored into a guesthouse in the 70s. All bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms and upstairs bedrooms have private balconies. There is a charmingly converted rustic barn to the rear of the main house which holds up to 6 people. The guesthouse is open year-round, often filled with guests who return year after year or stay for months at a time.

    We are situated in Burgau, a quaint fishing and surfers beach village on the south Algarve coast, with fabulous sandy beaches three minutes walk away.

    Over the years we have had many helpers whom we have warmly welcomed into the guest-house family. We hope you will join us!

  • Ayuda


    We are looking for help with the guests/tourists, breakfast preparation, making beds, doing laundry, ironing, and tidying rooms. There is lots of need for gardening and general help around the house.

    We usually need someone to help taking care of the e-mails and reservations (they come from booking platforms online, our website, or just walk-ins).
    The owner is Sally, a one-of-a-kind young lady who will be 80 years old this year. She needs some help with her computer, cleaning around her place and taking the groceries from her car to the house.

    This is a great opportunity to learn about how to manage a guesthouse while living in a beautiful sunny village of the Algarve. We always like to have fun and happy people around. What we appreciate the most is living in this guesthouse as a family - sometimes we cook together, other times we stay in our privacy. There is space for everything.

    You will have 2 days off (not always the same days, the team organises themselves) and we ask from you 5 working hours for 5 days a week. You can always have the same breakfast our guests have (bread, cheese, ham, coffee/tea). Some food will be provided (potatoes, rice, veggies, fruits), but we expect our helpers to take care of other foods they need.

    Algo más...

    The village of Burgau is small enough that the locals know your name and say hello as you pass them by, but also has many bars and restaurants, some with live music on selected nights.

    And of course there is the fabulous beach with stunning Algarve sunsets only 3 minutes walk from the guesthouse.

    Burgau is also 15 minutes from the lively larger towns of Lagos and Luz, all accessible by bus. Costa Vicentina walking trails are easily accessible from the house and are stunning. We are also close to the famous West coast surf spots.
