We're a Dutch-American couple (Dara and Dennis) who bought property in the mountains of central Portugal, a 20-min drive from Serta. We are building a community for those who like to stay short or long-term--basically, it has to click!
We are creative, well-traveled folk, interested in different cultures, ideas, and mindsets. We are big on communication, exploring life and its questions, spiritually-minded, and of course, we love nature, and simple living—or we wouldn’t live here! :)
This is a beautiful, magical place that we hope will become even more magical with your help!

You will learn along side us as we modernise our house, grow vegetables, and do landscaping. If you're handy and have some skills, welcome! If you like to learn—because we’re learning, too—and have a good work ethic, also welcome! Ultimately, you will learn more about yourself and working in a small group.
Our interests are sustainability, permaculture, spirituality, sound healing, communication, and people. We are looking for enthusiastic volunteers who love nature, are independent and able to entertain themselves, as we are small-scale at the moment, a diamond in the rough! :)
We are in a building phase, so there is always something to do. Inside, we need help with things like painting, grouting walls, removing rubble, cooking and general maintenance. If you’re a carpenter, electrician, etc. we could use your help.
We also love and value artists, those who can bring creativity and beauty to our place.
We welcome people with internet savvy, too, as we'd love to learn more about advertising ourselves online.
Outside on the land (4 hectares), we need help with our veggie garden, olive and fruit trees, weeding, raking, watering plants, etc!
Cet hôte propose un échange linguistique
I used to teach ESL (English as a Second Language) so can give you lots of advice!
At the moment, it's basic (glamping tents with beds, ooh la la!), but Dara is a fantastic cook and Dennis, a philosopher, so you'll be well fed in body and mind.
We have a compost toilet and keep clean by swimming in the river or our swimming pool. :)
In your free time, you can relax, swim, do what you like, and find time to be creative (art, writing, music, etc.)
We go shopping in town 1x a week, and plan a group outing 1x month.
Mobile phone access means a 5 min walk uphill and our WiFi works, but the signal is so-so. This is what it's like in the mountains.
