We are an English couple aged 63 & 65, who speak just a little Portuguese. The house has a garden to one side and behind. Adjacent is an olive grove with fig trees. Our home will enable you to experience the real Algarve, where shepheards can still be seen minding their sheep & goats.
It is situated about 75 metres from the centre of a small village in the hills,approximately 20 mins drive from Faro city, airport and the nearest beaches. It is about 8 kms from the towns of Loule and Sao Bras. There is a limited bus service to the village from Faro and Loule.

We have lived here since 2005 and have slowly refurbished and updated.
What we are looking for is help with mainly outside general maintenance, repairs, painting, gardening,pruning. Someone who is competent with a strimmer & a chainsaw would be appreciated. A person who can erect guttering would also be welcome. A small amount of inside painting needs doing too. There is room outside for more wall mural work or ... more inside

Hi, we are Tom (48 from Belgium) and Blanche (49 dutch/spanish)We grew up in Belgium and Holland and live in Portugal for 22 and 14 years.Our children are: Michel (22) and Luka (10) We live in a small farm in a beautiful environment in the middle of Portugal close to the Serra da Estrela.We built our own tiny wooden house, cabin, tool shed and stables.We constructed a wooden platform with a tipi on top to house helpers. We are totally off the grid. Electricity comes from a small 2 panel solar system and we have our own well on top of the land so the water for all our use comes down with natural gravity.
We got 2 vegetable gardens and a big glasshouse, several (medicine) herb gardens and planted loads of fruit trees. We are planting a fruit forest garden and recently dug a huge pond for water storage.We made artificial wetlands to clean our greywater and are building a decent compost toilet now (while the one we use now is a very simple design). We also would like to built a hydro g... more inside

This is a smallholding eco quinta located on the banks of the Dão river in the Beira Alta region of central Portugal. A perfect place for people who want to be surrounded by an abundance of natural beauty, experience rural Portugal, and enjoy the comfort of a small and social community. The MdD is managed by a Dutch/American couple and a rotating group of long-time volunteers. We are located directly on the river Dão, partly within an ecological reserve. Over the course of 26 years this former miller's farm has been turned into an off-grid, partially self-sustaining homestead, rural tourism business and artist-in-residency program...and a place loved and visited by many.

In 2017–18 we will be expanding our food producing garden, work on upgrades in our building facilities and ongoing landscape/forestry management. For the spring and fall months we are looking for volunteers who can work in our vegetable garden, assist with general terrain and facilities maintenance, and rando... more inside

We are a young at heart retired couple in the prime of youth in mind if not body which is why we need some help in our Gardens. During the month of May. Initially we are looking for Helpxers for 1 or 2 weeks who can turn their hands to general garden duties like weeding, pruning, cutting down dead trees, along with a variety of other tasks. With the help from other Helpx Sam Barbagallo who completely remodelled our koi pond and fitted a new liner a job well done! Also in 2016 we replaced all of the fencing to stop the dogs escaping and to keep our guests in as well! Our project for 2017 is to complete our 2016 project which was to convert our stables into kennels. This project will restart in the Autumn 2017. But as I said above our gardens are in need of some TLC Our next project after the gardens will be later on this year. We will need help in finishing them off and constructing runs and erecting fencing to stop the guests escaping, that's the dogs not the Helpxers! We work ve... more inside
