We are a German-Italian couple (Matthias & Michele plus our dog) with a traditional Alentejo farm house and 1ha of land near Cercal plus a yurt. The location is about 10km inland from the west coast, half way from Lisbon to Algarve.
We just have started to work the land, restore the old farm house, take care of the fruit trees and, soon, establish a vegetable garden. We started this year (2021) to set the basic infrastructure and amenities, so you have still a nearly endless choice and range of things to do and bring in your ideas and capabilities.
Our stand-alone house and land is nestled in a very quiet corner of the never ending Alentejo hills. Unlike the surrounding hills in summer, the place is quite green all year, as it borders a small stream. Cercal with shops, cafés and bus connections to Lisbon is just 3km away.
We are simple, down-to-earth people, open to all respectful and caring lifestyles. One of us talks lot, the other much less, so we should be in a balance :-)

Matthias is German, Michele Italian, our dog Romanian :) and our friends and neighbours in the area are Portuguese, British, Brazilian, Dutch, French etc. So you will be in a place with many languages spoken.
We would mainly need support with taking care of the land and the garden. If you are interested in building with cob, Michele can teach you and you could take part. Also restoring and maintenance of the farm house with its old taipa walls will keep us busy for quite a while ... But it is also up to you what you are interested in. We will find fitting and meaningful things to do that you will enjoy.

For now we can provide a room in the partly restored farm house, with kitchen and outside shower and toilet. People with campervans will find plenty of space on the land. We will cook for you and with you if you want. We can adapt to all preferences from vegan and vegetarian to "classical" food.
The surrounding is good for many activities. The west coast with many wild beaches is very near (15min by bus/car). The hills are perfect for hiking, especially from autumn to spring. The small town of Cercal is nearby with all necessary infrastructure and is connected with Lisbon by direct bus a several times every day.
