Come share experiences on our small farm in the mountains of Central Portugal.
We search for builders with experience in stonework, cob or lime, carpenters, arborists and other handymen.
Anyone with experience and good work ethic that really wants to contribute and make a change is very welcome.
Since Volunteering at workaway has changed over the last years from people who wanna help to people who want a free stay, we sadly really have to mention all these things, because we started to end up with more work rather than receiving help.
(People depending on technology who cant do a step without their phone are not at the right place here. We have limited electricity and no internet on our farm.)

Here you learn how to take a step back from the often too busy lifestyle and have time to get to know yourself, your needs, your strengths and your creativity, without pressure of modern life. We try to live in a way that is traditional for this area, where you will still find shepherds with their flock of sheep walking the streets. People here make their own cheese, wine and bread and are proudly offering them to taste for everyone. Living a simple sustainable life means to use as little modern technology as possible. We find that we cannot live a independent life for as long as we are influenced by media and depending on items. We hope that anyone who visits can mainly learn something about themselves.
The village we live in is situated on the side of the mountains and therefore, the views are always wonderful and there are endless hikes to be had. We hope to attract travelers who wish to live in harmony with nature and reconnect with our roots. It is so easy to forget the beautiful basics.
For the coming months we are looking for a volunteer who is experienced in stonewall pointing and lime plastering, to help us with some projects on our cabin and barn. We also can have a volunteer with more basic skills to water the young trees and veggies- thats kind of a lot of work during summer.
Simple. We have a van with wood-burning stove for colder nights and a tent with air-mattress and sleeping bag for more adventurous volunteers. The volunteers have their own kitchen and should be able to cook with the veggies and groceries we provide for them. We have a compost toilet, and hot shower. We provide biodegradable soap if you don´t have any.
In your free time, we can take hikes together (we´re in the mountains afterall), play music, play boardgames, go to the closeby bar to have a cold beer or even to the cinema in a closeby town.
No public transport here, but we can bring or go with you to town by car or walk for 20 -30 minutes. There are tons of natural beaches around if you wanna chill at a lake or river.
