  • Description


    Hello, We are Cam and Vera. I (Cam) am originally from California. Vera is from Porto in the north of Portugal. We met while both living in New York back in 2016. We decided to trade in the pace of NY for the lifestyle of Alentejo. We purchased a property just outside the town of Cercal do Alentejo. It's wonderful, and we love it here, but the place has been neglected for some years and needs some tending to. I am looking for a few people to help me care for the land, and help in the kitchen while developing this into something of an eco-friendly guest stay. I worked as a freelance photographer for many years so I have much to learn about horticulture/permaculture, so someone with a bit of a background in that would be great but not required. Also, someone with decent skilz working with power tools and a little construction knowledge would be of good value, It's hard to make time to care for the 4hectares of land and also dedicate time to photography as well as grow this business.
    I am an open-minded person that believes in Live and Let Live. We welcome people from all over as long as they too are tolerant and accepting of people from different places, orientations, or backgrounds. I am usually always pretty upbeat and positive and enjoy meeting and working with people. If you come to do workaway here, I will give you some projects, tell you what I'd like to accomplish, and be open to your suggestions. Most of the time I will give you the space and freedom to handle whatever project in a way that suits you unless I want something specific.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    If anyone is interested in learning about photography I am happy to share my knowledge and experiences from working as a commercial photographer in both LA and NY for the past 15 years. We can also provide a fun friendly environment from two people that have travelled much of the world.

  • Aide


    There are many outdoor projects; such as but not limited to: cutting and trimming trees, cement work, building a wood deck & pergola, organization of a disorderly garage, oiling wood decks, painting/staining wood, and creating walking paths along a hillside. Much of this is physical labor but it is working in a beautiful environment surrounded by nature with a cute little town within walking distance. Having some confidence with power tools and being able to take ownership of a project is encouraged.

    Possibilité d’accueillir les digital nomads

    We do host digital nomads. There is a common space with decent wifi for working. The wifi here is on satellite so it's not as fast as a fiber optic direct connection. However, we have had numerous long stays that have been happy.
