We are a young at heart retired couple in the prime of youth in mind if not body. Nicola works in Animal Rescue in the Eastern Algarve which is now taking more and more of her time so we could do with some practical help.
Our Quinta is remote but not isolated near Santo Estevao which has a small supermarket, post office, bars, restaurants and farmacia. Tavira is also close by for nightlife & culture. The beach area's are amazing and all within an easy distance.
Your accommodation has all mod-cons including wi-fi. The apartment is private with kitchen, lounge, bedroom and bathroom. Private outside sitting area and use of swimming pool.
We have bikes that you are welcome to use.
We have 3 labradores, 2 cats plus any other animal I may be taking care of at the time.
We will provide food.
In return we would like you to be able to work 4 hours per day, time to suit, but would suggest early starts due to high summer temperatures. week-ends off.
The suitable person (s) will be capable to do the following work.

1. Land clearing
2. Garden maintenance
3. We have very green fish pond which needs attention.
4. General handyperson skills
5. Work on own initiative
6. Operate garden machinery including chain saw.

Other long term project for later in the year to update small stable block to halfway house for cats and dogs.

Certain works will be prohibited due to summer fire risks.

Please send us an Email to [email protected] if you would like to come and help.
Terry & Nicola Nightingale
