  • Descrição


    Hi travellers,

    We are a loving family of four who recently relocated from the UK to fulfill our dream of moving off-grid and becoming self-sufficient. We settled in the picturesque region of Penela in Central Portugal where there is an abundance of fertile land and a growing community of like minded souls. So we are now learning about building chicken houses, pumping from a well and renovating our house. Life is full and so we could use some extra help!

    We are 2 adults and two children (13 & 9) a dog, with chickens and cats on the way. I am holistic therapist and my husband is a gardener. We have beautiful land with an abundance of of cork oaks, olives, figs, peaches, kiwi, walnuts, apples, pears and more. The garden is a continuous project which needs lots of love, strimming, composting, weeding, preparing, planting and harvesting. We are also home educating and so even our day to day tasks take a lot of time and we would also really value some help with the children's tuition.

    We live in a small village outside of Espinhal but workaway accomodation is in Penela a beautiful historic town with good transport links. It is approximately 20 mins from the city of Coimbre, Portugal's third largest city.

    Oportunidades de intercâmbio cultural e aprendizado

    As there is a strong alternative and home schooling community in the area it is a very welcoming and social place to be. Penela is really an up and coming place with restaurants, shops and cafes and a Thursday market. It is very lively in the summer due to the recently opened hostel/ bar that has parties and serves craft beer.

    The village of Espinhal and waterfall - Pedra da Ferida - are a few minutes drive away, with with music nights, monthly market, cafes, dance classes , weekly yoga.

    The accommodation also has good transport links to the city of Coimbre and there are also many river beaches nearby.
