Hi I am looking for help to complete a cob house and design an interesting covered courtyard in cob and natural materials. Plus we are currently making a new poultry house using the light clay method.

We moved to the Alentejo in 2004. we now have a small mud/straw/clay eco house. We also have two person caravan with its own outside kitchen/veranda it is comfortable and dry. we welcome people with their own van.
We grow veg and fruit and keep chickens and ducks. We also have three+ horses which provide us with a lot of manure! and require a fair bit of work. We practice natural horsemanship here and constantly strive to improve our connection with our animals.
We are looking for general help and specific skills such as clay building, fencing, woodwork. It is essential that you like animals and if you have a knowledge of, or interest in, horsemanship then this would be very welcome.

We offer accommodation and food which you can prepare in your own outside kitchen. we are 2 hours from Faro about 40 minutes car ride from the beaches at Vila Nova do Milfontes. we are very rural so if you have transport that would be good for you but this place is ideal for individuals/couple who like the quiet life and happy with their own company. Our village is only 15 minutes walk and it has a bar, shop and padaria.

There is always some gardening to do plus walking the dogs and grooming the horses.

NO DOGS because of the livestock.
