Ultimately, I'd like to form a long-term partnership to move forward with this project, but for the moment, I'm flying solo ;-)

The work:

I could use help with any aspects of the gardening, natural building, rocket stoves, animal care, vermiculture, alternative energies, forestry and water management or cooking and related activities for keeping the project running. This means that if you want to get stuck into a building project, you can. If you want to do some scultpure-like cob work, you can. If you want to build a new garden, you can. Even if you just want to take the dogs for a walk or water the garden, it helps! There are brambles, brush and ferns to clear. There are small trees to cut down, wood to cut, split and stack, animals to feed and meals to prepare. I will do my best to find tasks that volunteers are suited to, but I don't think it'll be a challenge, to be honest ;-)

The accommodation:

The accommodation and facilities are ever improving! At the mo... more inside

December 2017

We have no room for helpers for a while...next help needed in Springtime 2018! Contact us if you will be in the Algarve from February onwards...

In exchange for 5 hours help a day, 5 days a week, we offer a pleasant room with shower and good vegan food. As part of the daily routine, guests help us keep the house and garden generally clean and tidy.

Our old farmhouse and 'wilderness' garden is situated in the countryside close to the market town of Loule.
In springtime, after the rainy season, walls need whitewashing, the garden needs weeding (even though we are trying to create a maintenance free garden!) and there is painting and cleaning up to do, inside and out.
Summers are hot and dry and the garden is dormant, so we rarely have helpers at that time, we start to harvest almonds and figs towards the end of August.
In October comes the olive harvest and as temperatures cool along with the first rains, everything starts to grow again. At this time ... more inside

there is 5ha of land, but we occupy around 1ha.

our home is an open space without privacy, so we have to be discreet and respectful one to the other, each has to be independent and responsible.
we provide what you need sheets, blankets or towels.
our internet connection is low and limited, so is the water, coming from the well, unsuitable for drinking.

Situated in a rural SOUTHERN ALENTEJO, but not isolated location near Ourique in a valley close to the Barragem Monte do Rocha. Good road links at Ourique from main road and motorway networks and main line rail link at Funcheira station near Garvao 7kms away.

Please note we are nowhere near Porto - Algarve (South) 1hour driving and Lisbon 2 hours driving (North)




Not under the Tuscan sun, but the beautiful Alentejo region of Portugal (See the video 'Cork in a bottle' on-line)

If you are thinking of leaving the stress of nine to five in city life and have an idea of living in the country and growing your own food - maybe you would like to spend some time with us. You will learn the good and not so good points of living off the land, find out if you have what it takes in a try before you buy.

We are now our 15th year here and have weathered many storms, literal and emotionally, but have managed to create something unique which has now been recognised with our new ve... more inside

We are a couple and we live in a little farm (I'm Portuguese and my husband is English) and I am looking for helpers to do general farm work, as fencing, land work, cutting herbs, painting the house and other little jobs such as gardening, accesive for all people. I also have a swimming pool to enjoy. Pets are allowed if they are sociable with another pets.

For the 6 hours of work per day (5 days a week), I offer food and a place to stay. The volunteers would have a bedroom (2 people per room and I have 3 freed bed rooms).

We do have some internet and you can charge your phone etc.

update, 01.12.2017:
I need somebody helping me in the veg planting and land work

I am a very friendly host, in love with the natural park where I work and live for 15 years.
I live by the beach, in a hippie style house, waking up everyday with the sound of the Atlantic ocean.
I need friendly people who are willing to help me with everything I need to make my restaurant up and running, as well as the little garden where I plant as many vegetables and fruits as I have time to.
At the restaurant I need help as waiters/waitresses, and good cooking skills are always an extra, but not essential, as I am a great chef already, and I can also teach if you are willing to learn how to cook some delicious international food.
I do speak English, Portuguese, German
There is private room with a shared bathroom. Itīs a hippie style house right on the beach, very relaxed and with a privileged view.
There isnīt always other volunteers, so you would be a perfect fit if you are a traveller wh... more inside

I am happy to welcome gentle, friendly and motivated people to assist me with various projects at my home in the peaceful countryside in the Algarve, in the southeast of Portugal (between Olhao and Tavira). I live in an old farmhouse, renovated with environmentally friendly materials and solar panels. I enjoy a fairly simple and calm life on my land amidst orange, fig, olive and almond trees, 6km from the nearest village and 10km from the ocean and beach in a nature reserve. This is the sunniest spot with the purest air in Europe! Languages spoken are English, Dutch, Portuguese, some German and some French.

In addition to my house, I have a guesthouse for holiday rental, offering a refuge for people to de-stress and reconnect with the stillness in themselves, through connecting with the peaceful surroundings and, if they wish, through meditation practice. I also have a comfortable caravan, space for setting up tents and a Mongolian yurt where we meditate and hold open meditation... more inside

Hi! We are a young couple who run an awesome hostel in the centre of Lisbon.

Our hostel is very small, cosy and familiar so you'll be able to meet people from all over the world. We are located in Bairro Alto, one of historical Lisbon's neighbourhood, and the most bohemian neighbourhood.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
We're currently looking for 2 NIGHT SHIFT helpers to join us from the 10th January.

We need help for the night time: you would be working 2 nights and then have 2 nights off (23:30 to 8:30). You'd have your days free.

Helpers are requested to do different types of tasks but mostly welcoming guests (opening door to current guests, late check ins, early check outs), ironing and preparing breakfast.

Apart from breakfast, we store some food that you can use i... more inside
