  • Description


    We are a Swedish/Israeli family of three living on our small farm next to Odeceixe, a cute village in the Southwest of Portugal. At the moment me, Gal is staying alone in the farm so I would be the one hosting you, not Johanna.
    Our place is located by the river of Odeceixe, 3 km outside of the village and 6 km from the Atlantic ocean.
    We bought the land in the spring of 2014 and we have been very busy sense!

    We have hosted over 80 volunteers the past years and we have had an amazing experience renovating our houses and building up the farm! We could never have done it without the help from so many wonderful and caring people, we are truly blessed!

    Our vision is to live a quiet life in the countryside, give our son a good childhood growing up close to nature and growing as much of our own food as we can.
    We are practicing permaculture and we have renovated several houses built out of rammed earth.

    To support our selves we are renting out our self made houses for tourists.
    We have a garden and fruit trees to care for and some chickens.

    We need a bunch of strong hands and curios minds to help us create something beautiful for the next generation to come.
    The living circumstances are simple but comfortable :)

    We look for volunteers to stay with us this fall and winter for a long term. We look for people that would like to stay for a few months. If we will not find it, so for a minimum of 2 weeks and we will choose volunteers that have possibility of staying longer.

    This winter and spring, we will need help with building a warehouse from clay bricks, building a wooden sauna, landscaping, and cleaning in the guests houses.

    We kindly ask you to not write us if you are travelling with dogs or with children :)

    Unfortunately we don't have any possibility of picking up volunteers from Odeceixe after 4 pm so you need to plan your trip to us very well.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    We have had many volunteers already and I would dare to say that we are quite experienced when it comes to hosting ;) We have lots of friends in the area and often we have friends staying with us in the land.

    With us you can learn about natural building methods (this is what we have been doing for the past year) and how it is to live on a farm with all that goes with it.

    As we are hosting volunteers pretty much all year around, we are trying to keep our privacy as a family especially at evening time. This means we usually have dinners separately and we do not spend much time with our volunteers in the weekends. Therefor we always try to make sure we have two or more volunteers so there will still be company outside of working hours. We also appreciate volunteers that are independent and don't mind spending time on their own :)

  • Aide


    This winter and spring we are going to need help with a lot of landscaping outside of the houses, making terraces, planting trees and flowers and making it all look neat and tidy :)
    There will be a lot of physically hard work so we are looking for people that have no problem doing heavy lifting, digging etc. There is also a lot of different maintenance to be done, so the daily working tasks will vary a lot.
    We will need help with cleaning the rental houses.
    Hopefully we will also have a lot of time to spend in the garden!
    This winter we would like to build a warehouse and a sauna.
