  • Descripción


    We are a British couple with a seven year old girl Living in the East Algarve for over 13 years.
    We have renovated several houses in the Algarve and have just finished renovating an old Portuguese farmhouse.

    We are working more on the land now, planting fruit trees, landscaping and managing our olive and Carob harvests.
    Amanda is running ceramics workshops from her studio and we are also involved in a local environmental association.
    We have chickens and grow our own vegetables and are trying to expand this area of our work.

    I used to work in the art department for the BBC in the UK. I am now involved in various building projects, property renovations and some photo production work.
    Amanda used to be a TV Editor, she is now a full time mum who also runs a small ceramics business and enjoys a more spiritual take on life, including yoga and meditation.

    Ideally this project would suit a couple or 2 friends, however singles are most welcome.

    We are looking for enthusiastic practical people to help us with our farmhouse renovations, gardening, landscaping and childcare.
    If you Like kids and are interested in building, gardening, sustainable living and environmentalism this project is for you.
    Anyone with knowledge in environmental campaigning would be very welcome.

    Your accommodation will be a cabin with its own kitchen, dry compost toilet and solar shower.

    As a couple we give you 40 euros per week to buy your own provisions. With some meals at our house, depending on how busy we are.

    The farm house is walking/cycling distance from Santa Catarina, our local village. Here you will find all amenities, cafes, bar, shop, bakery, bank, post office and pharmacy.

    If you can drive (and we trust you!) we have an old car you can use to get around. We also have bikes you can use.

    The Farm house is about 10 minutes drive from the beach.

    This is a great opportunity to learn hands on with building projects, landscaping and gardening.
    If you are arty and creative then there maybe some help needed with Amanda's ceramics business.

    Hope to hear from you soon!

    Stuart & Amanda
