We are a Dutch/French couple who bought and converted a beautiful place just below Castelo Novo in the Gardunha Mountains. It is idealic here - with a spring and pond at the bottom of the property. Sun, shade, many fruit trees and a small organic garden.
So, we need some help here! We have been working with lime and wood and natural product.
Next plan is a wood shelter, a compost toilet and outdoor shower, we also will start with building a kitchen, carpenters are especially welcome !!
And we are thinking to make a straw-house, who have any experience ?
There is always a lot to do on the land and we experience permaculture and hugelculture
We, vegetarian, can offer our hospitality in the form of breakfast, lunch and an evening meal + free WiFi
We can also offer at least one or two djembe sessions - we are teachers of music and have a little band here - so also musicians are especially welcome.
What we expect of our helpers is 6 hours a day!
We are in a lovely spot - walks around here are recommended. Check out the youtube video of Castelo Novo - you might just see us - no only joking. We have behind us the mountain and in front views of Monsanto.
As for accomodation - we have several terraces with shadow - bring your tent !!! You can wash in the river if you wish, only if you use eco-products!.
If you prefer, we have B&B or an apartment for 4 people - we can talk about the price
We are animal lovers, so as long as your animals get on with our dog and two cats, you can bring them along.
Please feel free to get in touch via the email, or give us a call.
We speak lots of languages
.....a few words of Arabic and Northern Irish!! And after a few glasses of our local wine ANY language you wish!!!
