    Description

    Hi, my wife Ana is Portuguese and I, Chris am English. We are both fit and healthy fifty year olds and have renovated our home recently which is in the quiet countryside only 2km from amazing beaches. We will be sharing our home with guests and need help to run our private home and garden giving us time to look after our guests.

    There is lots of work to do but time too to carry out your own project though as I say it would be lovely if you fully committed to the project here.

    We have a clothes optional philosophy here which means that when it's hot we may at times go 'au natural' enjoying the 1 hectare private gardens and pool as nature intended. There is no pressure to be naked but you need to be comfortable with nudity and its is definitely NOT a sexualised environment just nature, freedom and peace. We did in the past have many happy workaways in a similar environment.

    Basically the house is being rebuilt and extended by professional builders so our work is to sort out the garden landscaping and fit out the house with furniture and lighting etc..There may also be a need for help in the house with general housework, cooking and daily life
    It is important that you are strong and self motivated though you will be helping alongside us you may also be working by yourself at times too. Although you don't need to be a 'builder' ( but it would be useful ) it is important that you feel that you will be able to truly help, being able to take instructions is important too. If you have skills to offer then I will be very grateful too, just tell us what they are especially helpful would be building experience, welding, small business wifi set up and website building.
    The gardens need a lot of tidying too and an ability to help plan a new garden would be especially useful.

    Well that's the serious bit. In return for five hours help you will have three simple meals a day; we all join in with cooking and cleaning up. Time off each day will be organized to fit in around all of us as will two full days off per week, we will be as flexible as possible as we understand this is a volunteering exchange and you will want to see the local area and experience local life. Its easy to walk down to the beach in thirty minutes and there will be opportunities to go out with Chris and Ana if you would like. It's May now and the beach is warm and Workaways have been swimming in the last week as well.....

    Your accommodation may be a portacabin or a room in the house if ready . As we will be working hard its only fair to say that we will not be partying each evening so we are probably more suited to sharing our place with a quieter person or couple.
    We do have a dog who is lovely but large and for a young lady rather boisterous so you will need to be happy around her:-) the cat too.....
