We are Adam (Web developer) and Sue (chef). We live in the hills of the Algarve, in an old estate with a lake, all situated in a quiet valley. We have been slowly renovating and improving the land here for the last 2 years. We aspire to being organic and self sufficient eventually but need some help to achieve this! We have dogs, cats, quails and chickens, and hopefully this winter will have some goats too.

We are looking for 1 or 2 fit, energetic, hands-on people to work with us to maintain our lake, create and maintain the garden and trees, rebuild drystone walls, brick & mortar projects, and other general maintenance. In exchange we can offer accommodation and meals. We are omnivores, but happy to cook vegetarian or vegan as required too!

We can offer a skill swap of cooking, programming, and the practical skills that we have learnt along the way so far.

Accommodation is a double or twin bedded room with en suite bathroom, and we have plenty of space for live in vehicles.

January 2020 update: General gardening help always needed, some jobs with bricks/cement - a new outdoor sink and a pump house for the borehole. We have several wood working projects planned too - furniture restoration, arbors, fencing, and bird pens.
