  • Description


    Hello, I am Virginia, 48 years old mum from 4 girls, I am from Holland but living in Portugal since 2005. I work with tourists and I am a ceramist.
    Me,my partner Alberto and the youngest two live in a small town in the portugese countryside. We love restoring old houses and furniture. Trying to do a vegetable garden, and fun projects on our land, which is mainly woodland. Over the last years with the amazing help of volunteers. This experience has become very dear to us. We all love to meet new people. And we made some lasting friendships over the years. I am looking for some help in and around the garden, with some painting, or small diy projects , cooking or any art projects welcome as well.
    You need to like kids, animals and be a possitive person. We offer you your own cottage. We have lunch together, sometimes with the kids, and in the afternoon you have all the time to do your own stuff.

  • Aide


    In wintertime we always have several things to do in the garden or in our woodland. Like weeding, planting, clearing parts of the garden and woodland with a trimmer. Around the house we also have some painting and some small repair jobs. I love restoring old furniture and if you like it you can help me or i can show you how to do it. I would also love if you could cook sometimes, and especially if you can cook nice vegetarian meals.
