    Description

    Hello!

    We have availability from 6th of December 2021

    We live in a 300 year old farmhouse with 52 acres on the edge of the beautiful Monchique mountains where the Algarve borders the Alentejo. We have seen bonelli's eagles, herons, storks, fox cub, deer and once a family of otters. Wild boar live around here but they are shy so you only see the footprints by the lakes.

    After spending eleven years in Cyprus we came here in 2009. We are easy going and flexible. We like to meet people from all walks of life and have also travelled internationally. Although it's peaceful and rural we love the contrast so a few times a week we drive to the West Coast, Portimao, Silves or Monchique.

    We have a pool which is great in the summer, you’d be welcome to use it anytime expect when holiday guests are using it. The beaches on the south or west coast are 40 minutes away. The West Coast beaches are very popular for surfing.

    Barragem de Santa Clara is nearby. It is one of the biggest lakes in Portugal, great for hiking, swimming and water sports.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    We are very practical people and although we hope workawayers will have some skills when they come here, we hope that we can add to them.

    We love talking and sharing experiences from around the world! It has been a joy meeting so many lovely people, some of whom we consider lifelong friends now.

    - Cleaning (the kitchen floors need doing daily), painting, gardening, general maintenance.. There's always things to be done!

    - Possibly provide company to my elderly mother, she loves meeting people and exchanging stories.
