Ex academic artist, (and just to be clear about things), gay male. Wanting to build towards a combination of summer tourist accommodation and winter and special occasion artist residency. Currently converting a smaller house (grey house in image beside chapel house now white and yellow) as a temporary residence and beginning work on the larger house (with the Chapel) into private living accommodation. Have just built a platform for a two double bedroom tent with common area situated in a shady area above the new pool. This will be the helper accommodation. I have just put in two new double spring mattresses on frames. Would prefer single people. There are several ruins on the property which will be eventually converted into accommodation. Plenty of olive trees that make great oil...a variety of fruit and nut trees. The location is on the side hill beside a small village. I need help with most things. There is plenty to do both on land and small renovation tasks such as painting. It ... more inside

Looking for help on our new off-grid eco-project in the mountains of central Portugal


Early days on an ecological project to create a working model of accessible sustainability in the mountains of central Portugal. The evolving concept is to experiment with, develop and share techniques of natural building, regenerative agriculture and healthy living. This may include aspects of sustainable/alternative energy production, food production, passive solar energy, food forest development, forest management, vermiculture, water management, humane animal partnership and community integration.

There are two roles that need filling:

1) Volunteer to help with building work, grounds maintenance, animal care and sharing household chores. Five hours of work per day, five days per week, in exchange for three meals per day and camping accommodation.

2) Long term partner(s) to join us in this project, possibly starting as a volunteer and eventually building their own accommodation ... more inside

We live in a beautiful small hamlet nestled in the hills of central Portugal. There are four houses which until recently lay abandoned for 60 years. The river Pera runs through the valley (we have a great swimming hole) and a spring delivers our drinking water. We, Miguel and Shobha, live here with our seven year old son, Saul, and four year old daughter, Anaya, and are restoring part of the hamlet and reclaiming the land. We are planting trees, setting up an organic permaculture garden and provide a retreat and workshop space.

Helpers are needed for a vast array of tasks! These include landscaping, clearing, cleaning, cooking, childcare, gardening, tree-felling, pointing, dry-wall restoration ... and more! Accomodation is either in tipis or a self-contained room. The set up is basic but comfortable. We have a solar set up for electricity & wifi. We will also provide 3 nourishing, vegetarian meals. We ask for 5 hours work per day, 5 days a week. We welcome nature-loving, com... more inside

CURRENTLY WE HAVE FREE SPACE after 23rd OF APRIL, BUT VOLUNTEERS WITH THEIR OWN VANS OR CARAVANS ARE ALWAYS WELCOME.

We are a German (Franz 33) and Polish (Kasia 26) couple who both enjoyed traveling for the last years individually and together. We speak english, polish, german. We are both much interested in organic farming, permaculture and sustainable living. Franz has a Bachelor degree in Biology and we both have successfully taken part in a Permaculture Design Course program. Kasia also likes to practice Yoga and would love to share and exchange the practice experience.

In Oct. 2017 we made our best dream come true and got the land in the heart of Portugal, where we live now with our two cats - Viking and Selma - and a cute dog, Tao. The land had already some basic permaculture principles in its design when we bought it, but there is still a long way to go to turn it into what we imagine. We are setting up a food forest, doing some natural building and planning to restore... more inside

Hello, we are Axel and Mônica (both 45). We are living in Portugal and our house with 3000 squaremeters of land is in a small village in the countryside of the beautiful Algarve. We can offer accommodation (bedroom - as you can see on the picture - and separate bathroom for you) and meals of course. Behind the village the mountains start, so here is a lot of nature,the beaches are 30km away. The next town (Messines) is 4 km away, the next village about 1 km. The next helpers we would need in the time from March to June for more or less 2 or 3 weeks. We prefer a COUPLE and people who could speak portuguese, german or spanish (as Mônica doesn´t speak english). If you don´t speak those languages, please ask us. Helpers are very welcome to our house.
