Interested in travelling to Portugal and see the country starting from the coastal centre? Would you like to exchange your help for free accommodation (in a beautiful place), some meals and sharing the life of locals?

I am a 66-year old retired teacher and I live in a house situated on a hill, a former farm that produced wine but is no longer cultivated. The hill is very close to the city of Leiria, Portugal. I need some help to do some works like weeding the big garden.
Helping times could be scheduled for 4 hours a day, 5 days a week, for 2/3 weeks in exchange for accommodation and some meals. If the helper prefers to do more hours a day then he could enjoy extra free time.
A couple would be welcome!
You'd get a bedroom of your own and you'd be allowed to move freely, to use the kitchen to cook your meals.
On arrival, I'd show you what I'd like you to do (the garden to clean, and you would be free to organize your timetable. You may work as long as you like a day and take... more inside

This is a sanctuary to protect domestic and wild animals and also the forest. We have 40 animals saved from being abandoned and cruel conditions. This is a peaceful place where we can connect to Mother Nature. We have four independent houses and we need some help to take care of the animals, including therapy. We speak Portuguese, Spanish and English. I am a designer and a ceramist painter, and i am Spanish. I need someone responsible enough to take care of everything when i go to the fairs to sell my ceramics. Thanks so much.

We do have a small mediterrian plant nursery.
Here we do need help for all the different works, e.g. clearing the ground, cutting, potting plants.
And we really like to welcome motivated helpers for this kind of work, as it is a lot.
We prefer short time stays first with possibility to extend the stay, when everybody feels ok with it. And we normally ask for help in the mornings, so afternoons are free time for the helpers. As helper you should like to spend some free time by your own and you can use our bikes to go around.

Right now we need help with the plant nursery and selling plants on markets, beside keeping the pots clean, weeding and potting. And we need help in taking care of the whole plot, sometimes we also need somebody help us with painting or cleaning.

The accommodation for a helper will always be together with a bathroom, depending of the time of the year, it will be a guest-room or a caravan and we cannot guarantee Wifi.

We do live 8 km away from the next... more inside

We have recently bought a farmhouse in Western Algarve.

We are looking for 1 or 2 persons (ideally a couple) to help us with tidying it up in exchange for a self contained apartment and food.

We would expect 5 hrs help a day for 5 days a week, weekends off. We are flexible with hours (for example you can do extra hours one day and have a day off the following)

If you are a couple help could involve, gardening, painting, helping to restore old furniture, helping with cleaning, fencing a small area at the front of the property.

We are in the country about a 5 minute drive to the fabulously electic village of Barao de San Joao, with a few restaurants, a bar with live music most weekends and a great hippy market one Sunday every month.

Lagos is a 15 minute drive and the wild West Coast beaches are about 20 minutes drive. Great for walking and surfing.

We have three children, aged 7,5 and a baby. My husband is from Venezuela and works remotely for his English company ... more inside

Hello,
I am Antonio, 40, Italian.Seven years ago i radically change my life and start to travel since i root in the beautiful hills of western Algarve, 1km from the village of Pedralva.I do not work with accomodation or sport tourism, i am trying to become a farmer, organic and sustainable.

Since less then two years i started my little personal project in a land of 3000 sq mt, where i live with one dog a two cats in a little never finished house in clay and wood.

My place can be uncomfortable from some people and is kind of small, so i like to host people very motivated and interested, even without experience or particular skills.For me is very important the real interest into the self sustainale low cost lifestyle.I also dont do Joga or surf and i am not vegan.
