Rula and I recently became parents and spend most of our day taking care of the baby.
We have a small water mill, partially renovated, with fully equipped kitchen and modern bathrooms.
Our farm is mostly woodland and is a 4 minute drive or 30 minute walk from the town center of Ponte de Lima where you can find many facilities, including library, big supermarkets and a lot of restaurants and cafes. We are 1 hour away from Porto and 20min from the ocean.
Offering shared bedroom and meals in exchange of 5 hours of daily work. One bicycle is available for guests. We do have Wi-Fi (limited).

Here are some tasks we would need help with:
- Cutting grass and clearing brush
- Cutting old trees and firewood
- Digging and moving dirt using manual tools and wheelbarrow
- Taking care of vegetable garden
- Fixing stone walls and building steps in the gardens
- Baking, cooking and cleaning

And a few bigger projects we are working on:)
- Repointing exterior house walls
- Building a garden shed to store firewood and bicycles
- Putting up fences and stone walls
