  • Descripción


    The Monte is located in the Tavira Region eastern Algarve, where I own a small house and a yurt.
    I’m trying to create a garden of vegetables, fruit trees, almonds and herbs. Help is needed for creating the garden and building or repairing fences. I know a lot about edible plants and herbs and would be happy to share my knowledge with you. Im looking for people who are experienced or interested in gardening. In this region gardening is hard work. So please read full description!
    Helpers can stay in the yurt or in a tent, what is a unique experience of being in contact with nature. Temperature inside the yurt is equal to outside, so it can be cold at night and hot during the day.

    The ocean is nearby, so its possible to go to the beach by car, or bike or foot if you are really sportive. The place is very quiet and calm. People should like this absence of noise and other people. I like to talk with workawayers, but you will be a lot of time on your own. Good if you know how to enjoy yourself in the envirement of pure nature. Best is to come as couple, than maybe its easier to adapt to this for modern people unusual conditions..

    I’m an author and teacher for literature, and I would enjoy discussing books with other readers.
    There is a small bookshelf for visitors in german, portugues, french and english. You can also find some gardening and DYW and wood work books.
    Also the life and nature in Algarve is unique. You can learn a lot about history and culture of southern Portugal by visiting the old castle in Castro Marim or the Museum in Alcoutim, and if you go to Huelva and Sevilla more about Spain.
    If you are interested in language learning some basic Portugues or German, my native language could be nice.
    You may also learn about how to grow vegetables. About herbs: how to know them, how to use them,..
    I like to weave baskets, maybe this is also an interesting craft for you?

    I have a lot of experience in teaching german as a foreign language. And I learnt a lot of languages including chinese and russian, but I forgot most of it. Learning some more languages must be fun. I would give it a try even if its unlikely that I could use it again, like african or other asian languages.

  • Alojamiento


    During Summer you will stay in a yurt, this is an beautiful painted original mongolian tent. (See pictures). The temperature inside isn’t different from the outside, so could be cold at night and hot during the day.
    The toilet is a compost loo, shower is outside. If you like camping, you’ll love the yurt.
    During November to April you can stay in a tent.

    It is a very calm place. Please make sure that you like to hear only the birds and frogs. If you like to meditate could be the perfect place for you.

    I’m a vegetarian since more than 30 years, so Workawayers should accept to eat vegetarian meals. Breakfast and lunch are included on workdays.
    The use of drugs or alcohol is nothing I would except! Smoking is strictly forbidden! We already had a wildfire.
    One thing you should think about: staying outside in a very remote place without all the luxury of civilisation is a hard challenge. If you love to meditate and like to let civilisation behind, it can be the perfect place for you. But if you have mental problems you should be honest and choose a place with more possibilities to meet other people.

    Algo más...

    The area is very nice for walking and cycling. You have access to two hiking rounds directly from the property: the almond trail and the goats trail, but there are many more with best signalisation in the baixo guadiana region.. There are several lakes within 10 km and ocean beaches are about 20km away. The beaches are large, if you go to an island you can find always a calm place.
    You can come by bike or hiking, but the area has many hills. So you must be fit and experienced. If you come by train or bus, best is to go to Vila real or Tavira, where I can pick you up.
    We are near to Castro Marim, where in August is a mediaval festival taking place. Another small town is Tavira, about 20km away. In all of this places you have free concerts in summer, museums and restaurants, cafes and a lot more to enjoy.

    The property includes a road of rammed earth, where you could find a place to stay, but you must accept the hills and therefore its noteasy to find a place that is plain.
