This is a Quinta/Farm in the North Alentejo region of Portugal it is a beautifully secluded & peaceful place, within a short distance of two fascinating medieval towns, & two beautiful lakes. In the long term I would be aiming to create a spiritual retreat centre, providing a venue for therapists & self development practitioners to hold workshops & retreats.
The land is divided into 4 paddocks & a small orchard, the paddocks are clear at present. I would like to build traditional huts, roundhouses & other dwellings. There is a good supply of water for the house & the land, & a deep freshwater water hole for a refreshing swim. There is a small tractor with a range of equipment, including a brush cutter, for someone used to driving one. I will be needing some help year round to clean & clear some areas of bramble & undergrowth around the house & to clear a patch for a vegetable garden, & general farm work. The house is in need of some finishing work, so I would be requiring someone to help, with basic building/carpentry/plumbing skills if possible.
