We are a German couple living in the southwest of the Alentejo. We have a 9-hectare, lonely, beautiful piece of land at the foot of the Monchique Mountains (which has not been inhabited for many years) not far from the Atlantic west coast. Since 2019 we are rebuilding it piece by piece. From time to time we are looking for helping hands for short or longer periods.
Seven sheep and three cats live here with us.

Oportunidades de intercâmbio cultural e aprendizado
We are two former theater actors , but we gave up our profession for our dream of Portugal. We now work as artisans and manufacture enamel jewelry in our atelier here in our workshop. Above all, you can expect nature, an unbelievable silence and an endless starry sky every evening. The nearest neighbor is less than a kilometer away and the next town 20 km. There is a small pub here, despite the seclusion, which can be reached on foot in just under 20 minutes, by bike only 10. We live here as a couple, with cats and 7 sheep spending our time, if not in the jewelery workshop, building, digging, planting, mowing, hauling and, recently, also harvesting. From forest and gardening to building with wood and clay, everything that a life in the wilderness requires is here to do and learn. We appreciate your interest and your energy and your story (s).

Este anfitrião oferece intercâmbio de idiomas
We have a desire for languages and would like to learn. Our language levels are very different: Babette is our communicator and speaks several languages quite well. Ralph wants to be able to do all that too, but he still has a lot to learn.
We still live very simply here. Our home is a lovingly developed circus wagon. We have set up a large canvas tent for you (see photo). There is also an outdoor kitchen, that everyone can use and where you can sit and drink coffee, for example. It is best to take a look at our photos, then you will get an impression of our land.
We would like to have lunch and dinner together. We are also happy to meet in the morning for coffee together, otherwise breakfast is individual.
We eat everything. You tell us what you like and what doesn't work at all and we will adjust to it.
We live 30 kilometers from the magnificent west coast of Portugal. You can reach the beautiful beaches in about 30 minutes by car. The towns of São Teotónio ("Rede Expressos"-bus stop from and to Lisbon), Odeceixe and Monchique are about 20 km away. There is also a free bus to Monchique three times a week, otherwise you have to rely on a car (or us). If you like hiking, you can start directly at our house and walk either into the Serra de Monchique or over the Rota Vicentina towards the coast.

We have a big canvas tent for you alone and an outdoor kitchen where you can sit comfortably. There is satellite internet in the countryside, which works well. You can do the basic internet work here. Video streaming works, but zoom conferences are not smooth and should only be necessary in exceptional cases.

Our land has enough space and some very nice places where you can park your campervan.
