This is a small BnB in the middle of Portugal and 30km from the coast. There is a main-building, 2 little guesthouses and a garden (about 1200m2)
We, Richard, Maryk and Vincent bought the quinta in 2008 and are building and rebuilding the place ever since. We did, and do everything ourselves.

From masonry walls, until designing and making furniture. Preferably from old material. Lots of recycling.
Now we have two activities going on, a BnB and a sound and light company.

So there is always a lot of different kind of work to do.
We decide each day which activity we choose to do. Depending on the weather or just what we like to do.

Such as: the continuing story of (re)building
Helping in the sound business, making cables, painting speaker boxes etc, cleaning and helping with the guests of the B&B.

But most of all we need help for the garden!

With three sound engineers in the house we never learned properly gardening. So we are kind of fighting a losing battle against all the herbs we don't want and the prematurely death of the nice flowers and fruit trees.
Our dream is to have a garden that is especially a nice place for children.

We are situated 4km of the little city Pombal, which has a train station. There is a bus from Pombal to the village Casal Fernão João, (one church and two bars) which is 1km from our place. But normally I pick my HelpXers up from the train station.

We have accommodation for 1 or 2 persons, as long they can share the room.Which is in our house. In the winter when there are longer periods with no guests, one of the guesthouses can be used.

More information about our quinta on our website and for information about us you could have a look at the reviews on

Due to a spine problem (I just had surgery and are in a revalidation periode now)I am rather limited in heavy work and there is still a lot to do. Without help I close the B&B regurarly. So any help is very welcome.

I hope to hear from you soon.
Cheers Maryk
