We live with 3 Horses, 1 dog, 3 cats at a wonderful place in the coastal region of the south west of Portugal. We are surrounded from hills, forest, valleys, a small river, cork- and olivetrees in a untouched nature and peacefull atmosphere of a 20 ha-farm. Our project is to work with our horses, restaurate our beautiful old portugiese farmhouse and tame our wilderness. We are fully independant from communal facilities, we have solar-current and our own water.
We are 10 minutes by car from the next village where you can buy all things you need. There are busses for a comfortable transfer to the Beaches.

You should like to do the gardening, weeding and cultivating the vegetable garden, also to embellish parts around the house by weeding , clearing regions from stones, taking care for flowers, herbs and fruittrees, painting the outside walls with natural colours, making paths and walls with natural stones.You should help us in general maintanance, householding, cleaning house and the terraces.
There are tasks around the horsekeeping like cleaning the paddock, maintain and repair fences and build new ones. Clearing and tidy up some reagions of the meadows from stones and bushes. We are very grateful when we could find someone who is skilled and has an idea of the masonry and carpentry. Our wonderful Portuguese farmhouse has to be renovated again and again.
One of the most important work is currently clearing and cultivating parts of our corktree forest with its thicket of macchia and blackberries with power-saw. End of September we start picking our olives Therefore we wish us volunteers, who has fun to work outside in the forest and the overgrown pastures on the hills and under the olivetrees. If you are experienced wich horses, you can do groundwork or make walks by foot; if you are an experienced rider you can ride on the place or roundpen or make a trail on the huge farmarea.
Accomodation: Caravan with own terrace and beautiful view in the landscape. You bring your own sleeping bag and workingdress. Access to shower and WC. We have a grillplace where you can grill or cook.
We offer normal meals, (greens, salad, beans, pasta, sometimes meat or eggs), we are cooking mostly vegetarian (sometimes we have meat or fish) . We cook not every day, so the volunteer is free using the store and cook for himself . Volunteers who want beer or wine or ask for some special ( for example glutenfree and/or lactosefree products) should provide themselves. On free days, if the volunteer is outside, he helps himself with food. Please note: we are not a hotel, not a recreation park for surfers, bikers, yogis or dancers as well we need no thai-massages, meditation or similar things. We emphasize this because volunteers often offer this and are very disappointed if we do not want or have it. We are an organic farm with animals, garden, olive and cork oak forest and dense undergrowth. We try to lead a sustainable peaceful life so we wish us a helpful, committed, open minded volonteer who brings in his own ideas, his talent, his skills and engagement, his curiosity, his questions, a person who could be a good collegue with us, and who is happy to live here in freedom. Because such a life is a great gift in these days
