Would you like to have a work away vacation in this house? And in return help us with all kinds of jobs on our Quinta’s? Are you a handyperson? Then let's talk! This house is in Meruge on the foot of the Serra da Estrela in the middle of Portugal. It has everything for a comfortable staying: hot & cold running water, electricity, internet & wifi, 2 two-persons bedroom, living/dining room, tv,, kitchen with pots & pans etc., fireplace, fridge, stove, bathroom with toilet, bidet & shower. Big terras on top which gives you a 360 degrees of a marvelous view to all the mountains and the villages. You will be there living alone. We, Pedro (Portugees, 54 years) and Jeannette (Dutch, 60 years) just bought this Quinta to renovate it and later on we are gonna live there. We live close by, just in the next village. We speak Portuguese, Dutch, English and French. We are looking for one or two people who can help us with all kinds of jobs. The big renovations will be done by a constructor but Pedro needs a hand with almost everything: Building new houses for all our animals, clearing the land, planting trees, helping to build our permaculture farm, putting up fences and more. If you love nature and a quiet lifestyle you will love it here. We will host for at least 1 week and as long as it is comfortable for you and us. We will usually work together 4-5 hours a day, 5 days a week, with Saturday and Sunday free. We will discuss all of this together before you arrive to have the best time together. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact us. Let's get to know each other and see if this is something for you!
