The house is situated 4km from Moncarapacho and 6km from the sea. It is nestled in beautiful unspoilt algarvean countryside, with a backdrop of gentle rolling hills and lovely sea view to the front of the house. Within the 1 hectare plot,only the area directly surrounding the house is cultivated. The rest is natural mato (shrubs and rocks).
I can offer a douple room (2 beds) kitchenette and own bathroom. Vegetarian meals will be provided as required.

My mother tongue is German, but I also speak Portuguese and English.

I enjoy this place and its peace and tranquility and try not to change its natural setting too much. I like to cook, to work in the garden, to look after my cat and 1 dog and when theres time, walking along the beach. In the evening I like to read or listen to classical music.

I am looking for help clearing the land (mato). This means cutting back bushes, making pathways, cutting firewood and creating mulch.

There is always some work to be done in the... more inside

Hello, HelpX-ers!

We need urgent help at our beautiful family farm comprising nearly 1 hectare of arable land within the boundaries of the Peneda-Gerês National Park, in Northern Portugal, a place of truly stunning natural beauty. Great location by the EN-308-1. The property is a few minutes from the Caniçada dam and 2.5 Km from the historical spa village of Gerês.
This property is in an area of the valley with optimal year-round solar exposure (South facing, microclimate), making it agriculturally highly desirable and providing really pleasant living conditions. However, please be aware that, as in most of Northern Portugal, it does rain a lot in Autumn and Winter!
Between September 2017 and April 2018, the property’s overgrowth has been painstakingly cleared by an amazing volunteer couple who made history locally by performing this task (by choice) with no mechanical assistance! The trees, vines and shrubs were also looked after.

We are now urgently in need of someone ex... more inside

Situated in a rural SOUTHERN ALENTEJO, but not isolated location near Ourique in a valley close to the Barragem Monte do Rocha. Good road links at Ourique from main road and motorway networks and main line rail link at Funcheira station near Garvao 7kms away.

Please note we are nowhere near Porto - Algarve (South) 1hour driving and Lisbon 2 hours driving (North)

Looking for IMMEDIATE help, We are keeping on top of day to day running but need help with extra projects, one being a structure to home our fruit bushes so carpentry skills might be useful. Mechanical expertise would be especially welcome. Have immediate vacancy, long/short term but not less than 2 weeks please. And please don't ask to come and then find your travel arrangements are too expensive, this is really unhelpful to us and frequently means we have turned down somebody else who was genuinely available.

Not under the Tuscan sun, but the beautiful Alentejo region of Portugal (See the video `Cork in a bottle... more inside

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, 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 and 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.

We are a dutch couple, living at the edge of a very small village in the center of Portugal. We have many plans and ideals and are willing to learn every day.
Last year there was the big forest fire in the area where we live and our house and land burned down completely.
Over winter and spring a new house was built and recently we moved in. We kept part of the old house of which we already recovered a good deal. Part of the old kitchen with the ancient wood oven is recovered and in full use for making pizzas and other dishes in that oven :).
Although there still are many burned trees that needs to be cut, nature is recovering quickly. The land looks different than before the fire, but is still very beautiful and will be paradise again. There is plenty to do on the land, the former gardens and the forest.

We keep 12 goats (8 are pregnant) at the moment, planning to expand in near future to 20. We take the goats out every day to our land for a couple of hours. The rest of the ... 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

Hey we are Manuel & Zuzu, living on a small farm with three pigs, 2 dogs and cats.

We have mixed roots, Manuel (29) is half Portuguese and German; whereas Zuzu (26) is a mix of German, Lebanese and Swedish. We are an active couple, enjoying surfing, ninjutsu & yoga for instance. We love to travel, meet different cultures and we especially love cooking and eating good & healthy food (as you are what you eat).

We try to get back to the roots by being self-sufficient and working in harmony with nature isntead of against it.

We look for volunteers, that share the interest of a healthy lifestyle and would want to exchange work (4h a day, 6 days a week- but we are flexible) for food, accomodation and the experience of living with us on our little farm. We only just build a little house on the land here and there are heaps of projects to do.

Currently we need someone with experience in wood work- a carpenter to help us with some construction work.

We are excited to meet ... more inside
