    Descripción

    I am a Portuguese/American retired orchestra musician. My place is 30 minutes from Lisbon, near the Sintra mountains and the small town of Colares, just a few km from several beaches. I host yoga classes and retreats regularly, our teacher is Georgia Marnham, of “Yoga Bahia”.
    The Quinta is over a hectare of land and have gradually been expanding the organic garden and fruit orchard, as well as building some interesting structures, including a a Mongolian Yurt, a strawbale cabin and an 'Earthship'. We have a lot of animals, including 3 horses. It all keeps us very busy, and we would love to have some help, particularly with construction of new dwellings for retreat guests. Also looking after the horses, the garden, and maintaining the natural swimming pool.

    Would would love to find a couple who is both good with horses, plants, and carpentry / construction , if possible. That might include fence building, compost making, maintaining the natural swimming pool, wood chopping, painting,... The length of stay depends on your plans and how well we get on, but we always start with a one week trial period.

    There is SO much to see and do in this area, you will not be bored! Culturally, Sintra and Lisbon have much to offer; for sports we have biking, surfing, climbing and hiking, horseback riding, among others. At our land we have a pool, volleyball court, table tennis, etc. Concerning meals, we will cook some of the time, but will also be happy to provide groceries for you to be self- catering some of the time.
