We are a Korean/Danish Christian family living near Moncarapacho, Algarve.
Dogs, cats, geese, ducks, chickens, sheep, goats, Vietnamese potbellied pigs, doves, quail and lots of Koi carps in our natural pool. The animals are for enjoyment only (and a few eggs) as none of us can kill anything.
During the lock-down we have planted a few hundred trees; olive, fruit trees, Cypresses,etc.
We have a small spare 2 bedroom house on our 2 ha. plot. and the main house is too big for us now our son has left for boarding school leaving only our 13 year old daughter and the two of us.
If you have your own caravan or camper you are welcome to bring it.
We often have visitors from many different parts of the world as we have lived in so many countries.
Would like some help in keeping the weeds under control, the plot tidy and the animals happy.
We are all Covid vaccinated.

The weird and wonderful ways of Koreans and Danes, as well as practicing the languages if you want. We speak Korean, Danish, Dutch, French, English and if really pushed over a glass of wine, a smattering of Swedish, Portuguese, German with a bit if Arabic, Japanese and Mandarin thrown in.
We are located 1 km outside Moncarapacho and 5 km from Olhao in eastern Algarve and ca. 40 km. from the Spanish border.
Helping keeping the weeds under control, the animals fed and content and some general maintenace work, incl. painting the chicken coop, and some kitchen cleaning as well as cooking help.
Own caravan or 2 bedroom air conditioned/heated house, possibly shared with another Work Away volonteer.
You can cook in the house or occasionally share our very spicy Korean food or bland Danish fare.
We are 4 km. from Fuzeta, a small fishing village, quiet in the winter, busy in the summer.
We have a few bicycles available and the village is not far away.
Not much night life, but Tavira, ca. 18 km. away has good restaurants and a few nice pubs with live music.
Lots of real Portuguese restaurants around within easy biking distance.
