We are a family of 3: I am Patrícia (48), my husband is Fernando (52) and our son is João (25 who is travelling at the moment). We live a rural area in the mountains of Madeira island in Portugal. We have 2 friendly dogs.
We are friendly, open-minded and enjoy meeting new people. We speak English, Portuguese and also a bit of French.
In our garden there is a small cottage that we usually rent, where the helpers can stay. It has Wi-Fi available, a room ensuite and a small kitchen
We are currently in the process of clearing the garden and doing some repairing inside and outside the cottage. So, we need 2 helpers who could do some general gardening, chopping wood (there is a chainsaw if you are familiar with using one) and doing some painting.
In exchange for accommodation, we would like 5 hours of work per day, with plenty of time off too which can be organized flexibly according to our respective needs.

The parish of Santo António da Serra has about 1,000 inhabitants and lies in a very picturesque area of 1,477 hectares. Santo António da Serra is the only parish in Madeira which has split in two, with one part belonging to the municipality of Santa Cruz and the other to Machico.

The name of the parish is dedicated to Santo António, its patron saint, but is traditionally known as “Santo da Serra”. Its popularity is mainly due to the natural environment of romantic inspiration, provided by the lush greenery, the beautiful villages and farms and the mild weather that is felt during the summer, thereby attracting many visitors.

Here you can find high quality restaurants, traditional hotel units and houses of rural tourism.

In this parish we find the Santo da Serra Golf Club, which is considered one of the most spectacular golf courses in Europe, with unbelievable mountain views and waterfront. Built in 1937, the Santo da Serra Golf was redesigned by Robert Trent Jones in 1991, and is within walking distance of Funchal and less than 15 minutes away from the Madeira International Airport. This golf course has 27 holes available for play, all with generous fairways and greens and a choice of tee positions, which favours all abilities.
