  • Description

    Description

    I live in the mountains of Monchique (Algarve) with my eight-year-old son, two ponies, a dog and two cats. I’m a writer and I teach creative writing online for universities in the UK.

    We live in a very small international hamlet with only a handful of people (all lovely). It is remote. Perfect for those who love nature and hiking.

    We are a bilingual family - English and Portuguese. We can help with either. I also studied Russian at university and lived in Japan for many years. Unfortunately, both those languages are very rusty. We live in a beautiful part of the world - way off the beaten track and it would be an opportunity to see a hidden side of Portugal. If you love horses my beautiful mare is a constant challenge. The area is great for hiking and biking - and all aspects of nature. I am a writer and may be able to help out.

    If anyone would like to spend some time with us, I would love to have some help with the garden and doing gardening/outside projects with my son. Some help with cooking and cleaning would also be good but it need not be every day. I am vegetarian but my son eats meat and adores sushi.

    I also have a couple of ponies but I have moved them into livery at the moment. I will bring them back periodically so if you are interested in ponies do let us know. We have an opinionated Shetland and a beautiful but headstrong garrana.

    We are sometimes away at the weekend so house-sitting would be appreciated. I have a friend who lives in half the house but she is very busy.

  • Hébergement

    Hébergement

    I can offer a self-contained studio (with heating but the WiFi is intermittent (there is in the main house though). The studio would accommodate one adult/an adult and child, or possibly two adults but it would be small for three. There is a double bed, a sofa bed, a small bathroom and kitchenette. As we live remotely there are not so many children around so I would be very happy for someone to stay with a child, more or less my son’s age. It is not for someone looking for nightlife.

    Our house is remote. There are no bars/cafes within walking distance (except up to Foia) and the nearest village is 14km but I can give you lifts when possible. It is possible to walk up to Foia - the highest point in the Algarve where there is a cafe. Monchique is also about 15km. In Monchique there is a swimming pool, library, yoga, many restaurants.
