My name is Marie, I'm french and I have been living in Portugal for 30 years. I run holiday homes in Quelfes, near Olhão in the Algarve.
I live in the countryside, with view on the sea. It's a calm and charming environment, only 5 km away from the large white sand beaches. The region kept its authentic vibe, away from the mass tourism.
You will stay in a bedroom with terrace and have your own bathroom and toilet.
We'll share the kitchen
I provide all the basic ingredients (salt, oil, coffee, tea, spices, rice, noodles etc..) but you will have to cook for yourself. At the market in Olhão you can buy fresh and local fruits, vegetables, fish/meat for reasonable price.
I provide the bed sheets, towels and you can wash your clothes.
In return I ask of 14 hours of help per week and per person. .
The scheduling of the hours of help will depend on the weather, arrival/departure or presence of the guests and your own preference. When possible, I am flexible with hours.
My place is difficult to reach by public transport, therefore I give priority to people with their own car.
Please note I’m a French-speaking, so if you're looking for an immersive Portuguese language experience, this isn't me !
I am looking for a couple age 23 or more.

Olhão is at 5 km it is a fishing port and a fascinating town with winding narrow streets, flat-roofed houses which give it a Moroccan flavour. The coastal littoral of the municipality belongs to the Nature Park of Ria Formosa.
The Ria Formosa Natural Park is one of the most amazing places of the Algarve, not only for its variety of landscapes but also because of its unique location. Recently elected as one of the 7 Natural Wonders of Portugal, this is one of three protected areas . This is a unique coastal lagoon which is constantly changing due to the continuous movement of winds, currents and tides.
The sandy islands parallel to the coast offers wides and wild beaches and are accessible from Olhão via ferry.
Over that Olhão has good amenities and communication links to the east and west Algarve via train where you can take the bike with you.
Within one hour you'll reach the west side of the Algarve, the city of Lagos, its cliffs, rock formation of "Ponte da Piedade", or Portimão making a cruize on the river Arade to Silves.
Within 20 mn to the East, you'll reach Tavira and its long history which origins date back to the late Bronze Age.
