Hi! My name is Ashley.
At the moment i am running together with Carla a airbb businesss named Quinta Lua Branca Magical Paradise.
The farm is located in the heart of Serra São Mamede at the north of Alto Alentejo close to the small town of Portalegre.This sacrate magical quiet place is sorounded by green hills and lies in a valley about 700 meters above sea level.
Because we are an Airbb business we are looking for a helper who can help us maintaining and inprove the farm.
The tasks to be done are, starting a vegetable garden, bring alive a old water fountain to create a meditation garden cutting the grass, clean the swimming pool, create new paths in the farm, , cooking for ourselfs( mainly vegetarian aldo sometimes we eat fish and raraly meat), Irene is also there, she is comming two to three days a week to help us in the cleaning of the houses to get ready for the guests but when she is not there we do it ourselfes but do not worrie about it because being in airbb the guests live it all the time very clean, we just have to do the beds an give a very good uplift etc... In all this jobs you will never be alone we will do it together like family and everything is very flexible and we try to make it allways pleasant for us
From begining November me and my best friend Fred will start to harvest the olives from his own land located in the hills of Castelo de Vide and in the área of Marvão as well as in the farm of Carla, all beautiful and special locations in the Serra São Mamede that you will have the chance to explore and enjoy, i alaways enjoy a lot, for me it`s like a retreat and the best is when we get the olive oil. at the end we make a special meal with tons of olive oil…
I have a very cozy house inside the castle walls of castelo de Vide and Fred has is own in the one of the most iconic places in castelo de Vide, a historical and unique fountain called Fonte da Vila so when we will be picking olives in that área you will stay at my place when we are in Quinta lua Branca there is a lot of places to sleep, you can check pics in Airbb Quinta Lua Branca Magical Paradise Portalegre.
We are looking for long stay helpers because Carla is going to Holand, her home country, to spend time with the family and husband and i will neeed help to take care of the farm and our tree dogs and cats.
In your free time you can enjoy exploring many of the medieval villages and beautiful walks through the natural park as well as the local gastronomy. We try to do every thing in harmony and pleausure
so if you would like to join us we are very happy to welcome you in Paradise.
Hope to ear from you soon Ashley,Carla and Fred.
