  • Description


    Hello, I'm Mindi I'm originally from The UK but I moved to Portugal in Summer 2017, to live a simpler, rural life.

    I live in a village 6.6km south of Tomar so I am not 'off grid' but try to be as sustainable as I can by growing fruit and vegetables to eat. We have our own water and sanitation but also fibre internet.
    I have 3 dogs, 2 cats and 6 chickens so it is important that you are comfortable around animals and have an open heart. My good friend lives next door with another cat!
    I teach English online so I am indoors for much of the day. I am happy to help English learners and love to learn about other languages and cultures.

    I am pretty relaxed and easy going and love meeting new people.
    I am looking for someone (1 or 2) who is/are happy to do tasks independently.

    The house is situated in a village 6km from the beautiful city of Tomar, with its World Heritage Templar castle. There are regular buses and trains so it is a great base to explore central Portugal. I can collect and drop off at the local bus/train stations in Santa Cita or Tomar.
    My home is 20 minutes by car from Barragem do Castelo de Bode, a hydro-electric dam, and one of the largest reservoirs in Portugal. With beautiful beaches, surrounded by trees, the reservoir is fantastic for swimming, boating and water sports. There is a small wake-boarding resort and pontoons with swimming pools in the lake.
