    Hello Travellers! 😊

    Come and help us in our beautiful quinta in central Portugal and explore the beautiful lush green area around the city of Guarda. There are loads of trails perfect for mountain bikers, public transport almost to the door - and the nights are cool even when it's scorching.

    We are an international team of 5: Steve, Eve, Nicholas, Sofia and our lovely dog Maya. We arrived in Portugal at the beginning of this year, 2022, and moved in a very peaceful and stunning quinta.

    Our bohemian paradise is located ten minutes walk from Seixo Amarelo, a Portuguese village in the municipality of Guarda.

    Our aim is to create (as close as we can) a self-sufficient homestead while farming and using permaculture practices where we can. We also plan to build simple infrastructure to welcome people for longer stays & to restore our ancient stone houses.

    We are interested in establishing an environment in which we can live happily growing food for ourselves and others whilst giving life to new projects, involving travelers, volunteers, people from the area and so on. We're trying to live as simply and sustainably as we can and unlearn some of our 'civilised' habits.

    We're a sociable bunch and enjoy conversation, sharing stories, good food/drink and musical happenings. Here you can find many instruments such as guitars, keyboard, bass, djembe, etc. If you like you can also join Sofia with practicing Yoga and physical exercises in the mornings :) & neighbours also run a yoga retreat - perfect for the weekend and an easy walk through stunning views

    We are looking to share our experience and knowledge & we hope to learn from you as you from us.

    If this vision resonates with you and you are a friendly, curious, aware and open minded traveler with positive outlook and a decent sense of humour, send us in a message! :) We welcome both beginners in their workaway journey, and people with solid skills.

    You can learn more about us and about our projects by messaging us 😎 👍 and we'll always want to have a conversation after the first message!

    Oportunidades de intercâmbio cultural e aprendizado

    Helpers will get a feel for 'life on the land' and how enriching agriculture and permaculture can be. Here, Workawayers will also have a chance to meet a lot of people from different cultures and speaking various languages, that is also an aspect of our proposal that we love and cherish ourselves.
    Here you can enjoy a very quiet and laid back lifestyle, typical of the Portuguese countryside.
    There are many hiking trails, river spots, local markets etc.
    Our farm has panoramic mountain views and is in a quiet undisturbed spot, making it the perfect place to focus on yourself, on skills that you would like to develop or just practice.

  • Ajuda


    We are looking for efficient, hardworking and independent souls to help with gardening, household chores and general maintenance....we are also restoring water mines, reservoirs & buildings so there is plenty to do depending on the skills you can share or want to learn.

    As we only recently arrived we would need help straight away with cleaning the land. The quinta covers 25-hectares more or less over many terraces.

    We are looking for you if you are able to work independently and have an eye for detail. We will take our time to explain everything to you. Sofia, 26 years old from somewhere around the world, will share most of her time working with you and being there whenever you need assistance. Having a good work ethic and a positive attitude is greatly appreciated.
    The help needed will pretty much be in the mornings but it can be flexible and food is provided on workdays :)

    *We would like to use the autumn and winter months to do extra construction projects so experience in this regard could be good too.

  • Acomodação


    In summertime there are plenty of shaded spots for camping with a tent or hammock or even vans and caravans. We have prepared a full area of five/six wide terraces which will be dedicated just for workawayers. A shower and compost toilet will be available for you as well as a pre-erected tent with mattress & bedding.
    We wish to provide workawayers with their own space to enjoy their free time. The land is huge so no problem in finding private spots to chill :)
    In due course we are building a very cozy bunk-bed house, which is one of the projects that we hope you will bring your skills to.
