This small farm is situated on a west hill side of the "Serra de sº Mamede"and has a great view.
Castelo de Vide is a very nice little old town,10 minutes away by car,or 40 min.walking.
I am Dutch, but live here already long time.
This is not a professional farm, but I sometimes need help, mostly for strimming in the beginning of summer, or cutting fire wood, or other work on the land to keep it (more or less) clean. Any possible helper need to be able to use a strimmer.
I normally can offer a own room, and food, in exchange for 4 hours work.

Hello
We are Annie & Adam, we live on a 5 hectare property on the out skirts of Melo, a village in the Serra da Estrela national park in central Portugal. We moved from Bulgaria with all our animals in April 2015 and are now creating our home and rental property/retreat centre here. We have 4 horses, 6 dogs, 4 cats and lots of chickens that make up our family, they are all lovely, however if you are not that into animals, this probably is not the place for you as they are allowed everywhere and join in on every day tasks, sometimes not quite as would be wanted! We hope to be open by May 2016 and so need a lot of help before opening becomes a reality. Once open the Quinta/farm will be a place for people to enjoy the area in a vegetarian, vegan, healthy, non toxic atmosphere. We will be running a variety of courses, including detox programs, self healing techniques, yoga and meditation and animal communication courses. You do not have to be a vegetarian or spiritual to visit, just wh... more inside

Hi,
My name is Sally and my husband is Ralph.
We have lived in Burgau, South Western Algarve, Portugal for more than 38 years.
Ralph had a stroke 5 years ago and is in a wheel chair, so most of my time is taken up looking after him.
We have a lovely 4 bedroomed Retreat called Salsalito, which closes at the end of October until the end of April.
We are looking for a person who is fun with a good sense of humour to keep on top of the outside, clearing leaves, weeding, netting the pool,general gardening.
The accommodation is taken up with the guests this time of year, so somebody who has a caravan or tent.


We are 10 minutes walk into the fishing village of Burgau, 5 mins by car to Luz and 10 mins by car to the Historical town of Lagos.
There is a bus stop right outside our driveway.
There are lovely walks along the cliff tops and bird watching is very popular.
The west coast is close by for surfers.
There is a surf and Yoga school in Burgau.
We can provide a double bed... more inside

Can you help? Unfortunately this week our swimming pool was damaged so we need a strong person to help Rob repair it. He will have to dig up some of the tiles to fix it. We are also hoping to alter a wall. You don't necessarily need building experience, just a willingness to work along with him and some labouring work. This job is taking priority. Our guest room is available until June 20th.

We are a married couple enjoying living in and updating an old farm cottage. We have installed some solar power, a wood burner and plumbing, so the essential services are there but we would be pleased to have some help to tidy up the cottage and garden/grounds. We have worked hard in clearing 15 years of overgrown foliage. Typical jobs we are working on include: building a rockery, sorting an overgrown flower bed, raking into piles for future bonfires, splitting and moving logs, and general maintenance such as preparation and painting iron gates, iron furniture etc, We have a double ... more inside

We are currently searching for a volunteer for:

- Now to June 28th (1 person)

Hi there!:)
We've got a hostel on a beautiful island Madeira.
It's a big house for the back-packers with a capacity of 22 people. We've got rooms of different types, lots of common areas. This place feels like home and many people come like costumers and leave as friends.

We're looking for friendly happy people that can dedicate around 4 hours of their time per day in exchange of accommodation and food. We'd love to share experience and make our place better and better. So if you have some fresh ideas of what else we can bring into our work, it's a huge plus!

The work is mostly about keeping the place clean, laundry made, beds prepared. The schedule will be organized together with you;)

We're searching for people who are ready to stay 1 month or longer and can book their flights within a week.

Large house with orchards and gardens, we are renovating a small lake at the moment which we want to set up as a natural swimming pool. The house is in need of a lot of renovation plenty of sanding etc in prep for lots of painting. Also the organic garden is starting to take shape, we have a large vegetable plot started as well as a medicinal herb patch and kitchen garden closer to the house; so lots of digging, planting and weeding. There is a table tennis room and we have good internet connection . We have a small caravan or rooms in the house available.

We are a small farm working with horse riding holidays and we've just opened a small school to teach some horse riding with non aggressive methods. We've already bought and recovered more than 20 horses that were basically abandoned or miss cared and we really love our work! We are looking for some helping hands that could stay with us for some time or perhaps even in a long term! We prefer Portuguese speaking people but not mandatory.

I'm Tania and i'm living in a small farm situated in a valley 5 minutes from Tomar.
I need help with general farm and gardening work, as for the last 2 years I have been so busy raising a little baby on my own, that the farm became slightly neglected.
Now I really want to get back on track and I am looking for energetic and inspired people that can help me not only with physical work, but also giving ideas and suggestions on how I could improve the land and make it as self sustainable as possible.

I can offer a room, shared toilet and kitchen (in my house), 3 vegetarian meals a day, trips to the lake with the kids when its hot, portuguese or italian lessons, yoga daily practice, occasional riding lesson in a farm nearby and visit the beautifull city of Tomar.

In exchange I ask for minimum 4hours work per day, 6 days a week.
Work can include general gardening/farming work, building and repairing (i started making a greenhouse out of reclaimed windows but it needs some t... more inside
