This quinta is a traditional farm or estate in the heart of Funchal. We grow herbs and lettuces, bananas, some veggies, and have some sheep and chickens. You are welcome to pick your own veggies and fruit that are in season from the Quinta.

We offer food and accomodation in exchange for 5 hours work a day. Alberto our farm manager will coordinate the work with you, (its helpful of you speak English). Work can include, weeding, sowing seeds, maintenance work in the gardens (preparing the lawns and paths) as well as helping out with the odd job on the Quinta.

Typically we ask you to be inependednt (cook your own food) and we like to have you for meals from time to time. You will share a kitchen and accomodation, which is in a room with two bunk beds. There is a bathroom next to the bedroom. Ideally looking for people to stay for longer periods (3 weeks or more) but open to shorter stays too.

We welcome both skilled and unskilled people.
