    Description

    Hello I'm Rachel,

    Looking for specific skills right now! Can you help?

    Do you have any skills in plumbing or building simple wood structures? If so I would love to hear from you so please send me a message. For such skills I am happy to pay something as well as provide hearty meals and trips or events at the weekends. You would sleep in a wood cabin with simple bathroom and shower. Similar to glamping accommodation.

    Also looking for help around the house such as cooking and cleaning.

    I have a garden, NOT lots of land but do have several olive and fruit trees and grow as many vegetables as I can make space for. My house needs some attention to upkeep and make small improvements and my garden is always needing care and attention. I enjoy having visitors and so do my dog Bety and cat, Bubu who are both friendly and chilled.

    My daughter and my grandson live nearby and I help them too on their quinta sometimes. I moved here about 4 years ago and I love living here. It is a fabulous location facing the mountains of Serra da Estrela national park. Apart from the main house there is a cabin that can sleep a single person or a couple. I am on the edge of a village and 5 minutes drive from the nearest town Seia. I hope my visitors can feel at home here and work with me on my projects. There are often events going on locally which we can enjoy.

    I consider myself to be environmentally friendly and aim to live in harmony with nature where possible. This includes growing as much as I can so that I can eat fresh, pesticide free and very local produce. I'm mindful about consumption and hope my guests are too.

    I enjoy cooking tasty meals for visitors and it's great if visitors share this along with the clearing up process!. I would provide meals or the ingredients for 3 meals a day (if preferred). I tend to buy and eat wholefoods and where possible, organic along with my own produce.

    In terms of working I require visitors to work either 4 hours 6 days a week, or 5 hours 5 days a week. So the average day is 2 or 3 hours of work in the morning with a short snack break in between. After lunch a further 2 or 3 hours. I am open to some flexibility and for those that prefer to work fewer hours, then we can discuss an arrangement whereby I provide a proportion of the meals.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    Visitors would be living in a Portuguese village so they would be experiencing the culture of this part of Portugal. It is a good opportunity to learn some Portuguese too. You could learn with me about gardening and fruit and vegetable preserving. Also how to cook tasty, healthy, nutritious and wholesome meals, cakes and snacks.

    I would like help with gardening and house improvements. My garden has a variety of shrubs and flower beds plus fruit and nut trees, including olives and vegetables. When the fruit and vegetables are ready then I might need help with preserving. Some animal care might be needed.

  • Hébergement

    Hébergement

    I can offer workawayers a cabin that is separate from the main house. It can sleep a single person or a couple. It is a small open plan living space with its own bathroom area, including a shower. In front of the cabin there is a small patio facing the mountains. The garden can be enjoyed by workawayers. There is room for flexibility with food which might be eating together, sharing the cooking or if you prefer it you can cater for yourself with the food that is provided. (Alcohol is not generally provided so please expect to purchase your own if desired).

    The main attraction here is the national par which is great for hiking as well as swimming in the refreshing and stunning river beaches. Some historical sights like Roman ruins. Mountain towns and villages. Seia is very close. I would happily negotiate transportation to places.
