We A have a rural property in Central Portugal only five minute walk to the village of Madeira (not Madeira Island!)

We are about to start the annual Olive harvest, on our land and variouse other tracts in this area, we could use some help. You will need to be prepared to work in outdoor conditions that can be cold, wet and sometimes difficult, it all depends on the weather. The rewards though are great, it is a special time of working eating and enjoying the abundance we are surrounded with.

If you want a great experiance in return for hard work this is for you!

We have both travelled and have lived in at least six countries between us. Many people have done for us and we feel it is our turn to pass on what we learned, sharing skills and experiences.
In exchange for your work we supply accommodation and three meals a day.
We ran a bush lodge for several years, so food is always good and filling, with most of the produce coming off our land. We try and cook most meals in the summer in a solar cooker, traditional bread oven or bbq, and in the winter on the wood burner and in a hay box.
We are non-smoking meat eaters but are quite able to accommodate vegetarians.
This situation would suit a couple.
