We, that is Lawrence (ex-Fisherman from Cornwall & Alaska) and Vani (from Germany, but living in Portugal for 20 years) have a private Albergue on the Caminho de Santiago Portugues da Costa.
We are situated in a beautiful old little town, Caminha. It is an old 3-floor townhouse from 1882 that we have renovated since Decembre 2019 and opened in May 2021.
We are looking for a responsible helper to assist us a few hours a day with cleaning in the morning and receiving guests in the evening.
Most of our guests are pilgrims on the St. James Way from Porto to Santiago de Compostela.
You are welcome to organize to cook dinner for pilgrims as well.
You will meet many interesting international people who are walking on a beautiful way of spiritual heritage through Portuguese country side and nature. Every one in their very own way and with their very own story. I think it can be an interesting experience to get to know so many different ways and views of life.
And you will live in a beautiful little portuguese country town/village 2km from the Atlantic ocean.

What we can afford to offer you at this point, is a room with a double bed, next to the reception on the ground floor. and I must admit that it is not a very great room. It is not very quiet and also not very nice. Its a good place to sleep, if you are not a specifically light sleeper.
Apart from your room, you have the entire house to hang out, including a little garden with hammock and sitting area.
We have 3 dogs, who live with us in our house in Vila Nova de Cerveira 12km away, and who come to Caminha with us during the day.
We can lend you a bike, and Caminha is pretty well connected with the local trains (cp.pt) and bus.
