We have a beautiful place in the natural park, 15 min walk from the beach and the nice village of Odeceixe (at the northern border of Algarve). We are eco-friendly and propose small scale responsible eco tourism and workshops activities. We need help to continue designing the garden, utilizing the local resources, stones, wood and water running through the property, work on a small vegetable garden and rescue fruit trees that have not been cared for for a long time.

In the summermonths may-sept. we need a responsable couple able to help us with the guest activity, and helping to take care of the property.

In the wintermonths we need people who want to help in the general maintenance and amelioration of the garden, the vegetable garden and the property.
From end january, we are going to complete renovation of an old 1968 Bedford Bus. It is partly converted, but we want to extend the living area. Anybody who has exerience with that type of work would be of great help.

In december and january, we will be away and need a responsible couple housesitting, taking care of the 3 dogs, 2 ctas and chicken.

We provide comfortable accommodation in the guest rooms/apartments. Internet available.
In the summermonths we plan to let people live in the brand newly renovated Bedford bus.

The arrangements about working hours can be discussed individually. We basically ask for 6 hours work per day, 5 days a week against food and accomodation or 4 hours against accomodation only. We often ask helpers to cook for themselves, eating together regularly but not systematically(there are good cooking facilities in the apartments and in the common kitchen). We are flexible about the arrangement and open to many other solutions if you have different needs. Atmosphere here is relaxed and informal, we are genuinely happy to meet new people and want them to feel at home, but we need people who are involved, willing to work and share the motivation for developing the project. Because we never take more than 2-4 helpers at a time it is not really the best place if you are looking for community like lifestyle. People who come here have to be reasonably independent in their work and in their lifestyle. We usually prefer to have people above the age of 25. We also usually prefer couples because the place is quite isolated.

You can see more pictures of the place and the region see our website link above.
