  • Description

    Description

    We are a couple with a 8 years old daughter, a 3 years old boy, 2 dogs, 3 cats and few chickens living on a beautiful piece of land in South Alentejo (Portugal). We love quietness and contact with nature, waking up everyday in our heaven of piece, surrounded by oak trees.
    We created a space to receive guests that want true ecologic relaxing holidays (2 tree houses, a bell tent...).
    We wish our visitors will observe and connect with nature, learn new things and enjoy mindful moments - as well as eat good fresh local food!

    Right now, we need volunteers for woodwork, decoration, gardening, painting, planting, feeding the animals, maybe play with our kids...nothing imposed :)

    We have 2 very comfortable caravans with an outdoor, covered kitchen for volunteers.
    There is also outdoor toilet and showers.

    If that resonates with you, please let us know (feel free to send me a message on whatsapp/telegram as sometimes I dod not get notofcations from workaway in my email for some reason...)

    PS: We ususally prefer to host a couple or 2/3 friends at the same time so you don't feel lonely if we have dinner in family in our own tiny house. We love to keep our privacy and respect yours.
    Lunch is generally all together ;)

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    We speak French, Hebrew, English, Spanish and Portuguese...we travelled quite a lot before finding our piece of land in Portugal and we come from backgrounds very different from what we are doing now...so we guess there is a lot to exchange with whoever is open to it :)

  • Aide

    Aide

    We are looking for responsible and serious volunteers who would like to help us continue to re-generate a beautiful piece of land, by planting trees, building wooden structures as we provide rural accommodation to mindful tourists.

    Qualified and/or motivated volunteers requested :)

  • Hébergement

    Hébergement

    Accomodation is in a caravan.
    There is an outdoor shower, an outdoor kitchen and compost toilet, as well as a wooden table and benches.
    If you have a caravan or a van, there is plenty of space, so we can discuss the option as well.
    We provide food (mainly vegetarian) but volunteers cook their own meals, apart from lunch which we share together.

    The following should be acknowlegded and accepted by volunteers before they come. Thank you :)

    We work 4 days a week, 5-6 hours a day.
    We are quiet people who expect the same from our volunteers (no (too) loud music please). It is for us basic respect to this rural area, as some birds are nesting on the land and in the neighbouring areas (owls, falcons...).

    Our tiny house is not a 'communal area', as we are a family who value its privacy.
    We also respect volunteers' privacy, everyone should enjoy his own space. We can connect the Internet from our house so you can enjoy it outside.

    There is an outdoor (covered) kitchen for volunteers attached to the biggest caravan, an outdoor shower and compost toilets.
    We expect from volunteers that they will keep these areas clean and tidy, so that everyone can enjoy a welcoming place.

    Water is valued and should not be wasted: we are in a dry area, and our water comes from the well.

    We expect people not to shower and do their dishes as efficiently as possible. We prefer anyway people that shower regularly, for the comfort of all :)
    Only ecologic products should be used as all the water goes back to the land. We can provide such if needed.

    We all drink water from a nearby source (regularly controlled, best water ever :)

    It is forbidden to make fire or use candles. Risk of fire is extremely high in the hot season (from June to October).


    Our lake is finally full, for the first time, as we were blessed with the first real winter in years...so if you are in for a swim, it's all yours!

    Positive and mindful people are always welcome.
    We prefer to avoid extremists of all kinds.
    Live and let live :)

  • Autres infos...

    Autres infos...

    Volunteers can go to the beach (beautiful Vilanova de Milfontes is 20 min drive from our place), hike on the Rota Vincentina, pick mushrooms, go surf...our place is located 5 minutes from a small town with restaurants and cafes.
    There are also plenty of local markets that make the rhythm of the life here...as well as other foreigners around...different projects, same good energy.

    If it's too hot: just take a dip in our lake and then rest in the shade of the oak trees; 2nd option: beach or lake, both are accessible in less than 20 minutes. A good siesta under a tree is always recommended.

    If it's already dark, find a comfortable seat or lay down and stare at the moon & stars, listen to the owls, the frogs...
    Enjoy peace, there are no more boundaries between inside and outside...
