We live on an olive farm in the centre of Portugal, not far from the market town of Oleiros. The farm is in its early stages of being brought back to life, having being abandoned around ten years ago. There's lots to help plan, repair, improve, and set in motion.

The quinta has about 250 olive trees and lots of other fruit trees - many of which we've planted ourselves. There is a main farmhouse, where we live, and about a dozen small stone cottages, most without a roof, that we are gradually repairing. We have lots of terraces to maintain and develop and a large amount of woodland to get under control.

We are hoping to implement a permaculture system on the Quinta and have planted out an area for a forest garden. We are also in the early stages of creating raised beds and an irrigation system.We have no animals, apart from 2 small and friendly dogs.

There are things to do all year round, but we are particularly looking for volunteers to join us and help pick the olives in ... more inside

We are a family run business.
Your hosts are Natasha and Michel, a married couple with their young daughter Maya, and son Mylo.

Before we started this project Natasha was working as a DJ and Michel was working as a sculptor around the globe.

After visiting this part of Portugal on a holiday we felt totally compelled to change our lives move here and start a campsite, inspired by the new ‘glamping’ movement, and our personal passions in yoga, health, food and art we wanted to combine all of these factors.

We grow all our own vegetables, have a restaurant and bar, offer horse riding, yoga and sculpting workshops, all in all we are a laid back camping, offering something a little different, we always try and deliver a top quality experience for our guests, and those who volunteer with us, we would love fun dynamic people to come and stay with us to help out.

We live between Lagos and Vila do Bispo in the western Algarve, very close to the National Park with its world-class beaches.

Our place is ideal for people who would like to get involved in sustainable self-build projects or permaculture gardens, and spend time with us and our lovely dogs. The community here is something special, we're very sociable and there’s often live music or other events taking place.

In recent years we've had some great HelpXers staying with us and are looking to meet others who can help us continue the good work. We're looking for mature, self-motivated people preferably with building or gardening experience – of course other skills are also welcome.

Work arrangements are pretty flexible and by agreement - for example, 4 hours work a day, 5 or 6 days a week with a meal provided on work days has worked well in the past.

You’ll have comfortable accommodation, and access to cooking facilities, a compost toilet, a washing machine and outside showe... more inside

A quinta that needs quite a bit of soil improvement.
The location high on a mountain , and although stunningly beautiful, very dry during summer, so we are creating shade by planting trees, reusing the grey water, composting the leaves, building swales and raising beds. These are some of the things we do here and could use some help with, to create a more fertile environment.
Its working, slowly but surely.... The difference in the last decade is amazing.

You will be staying in a lovely yurt with stove inside, outside kitchen, with fridge and cooker, composttoilet and spiral heated shower. Avô , the village is walking distance, river beach for swimming, 5 hours of work, 5 days p week. wifi available.
