We live in the beautiful unspoilt countryside of the Algarve, close to a lake, a 15 min drive to the historic town of Silves and only a 30 min drive to many beautiful beaches. We have a wooden house (which you will stay in) that we want to get ready to rent out this summer. We need help mainly with exterior and interior painting however there are many other small jobs on our 'to do' list, including gardening! We would like approx 5 hours work a day (5 days a week) in return for food and accommodation

The wooden house where you will stay has one bedroom, a shower room and an open plan kitchen/living area. You can chose to cook your own meals or eat with our family. We have children and various pets including a dog and a cat. There is a good sized swimming pool next to the wooden house.

There is one restaurant within a 20 min walk (if you don't mind hills!) and a few local cafes in walking distance. There are buses to Silves but it is a few miles walk to the nearest stop (our 85 yr old neighbour manages!). Otherwise we drive into Silves most days and usually have room for passengers.

The area offers fabulous walking and cycling country and is a great base to explore the Algarve.
