This is a small BnB in the middle of Portugal and 30km from the coast. There is a main-building, 2 little guesthouses and a garden (about 1200m2)
We, Richard, Maryk and Vincent bought the quinta in 2008 and are building and rebuilding the place ever since. We did, and do everything ourselves.

From masonry walls, until designing and making furniture. Preferably from old material. Lots of recycling.
Now we have two activities going on, a BnB and a sound and light company.

So there is always a lot of different kind of work to do.
We decide each day which activity we choose to do. Depending on the weather or just what we like to do.

Such as: the continuing story of (re)building
Helping in the sound business, making cables, painting speaker boxes etc, cleaning and helping with the guests of the B&B.

But most of all we need help for the garden!

With three sound engineers in the house we never learned properly gardening. So we are kind of fighting a losing battle agains... more inside

Are you a musician?

This is your opportunity to be part of a unique musical project in a peaceful countryside setting half an hour from Lisbon. In about two years this place will open up as a guesthouse for music and nature lovers who'd like to unwind from stresses of the city life. The theme at the guesthouse will be about using mindfulness and the flow state as a way of tapping into our own creative potential.

Looking for a helper to come stay for 1-2 weeks, maybe learn about gardening and permaculture, and be guaranteed to have a nice time. There's usually anywhere between 2 to 5 helpers at any one time.

* Please note that some construction work has just started next to the house, and I'm not sure how noisy it's going to be over the next few months...but perhaps a little annoying during the day. This is why the opportunity for now is only a short one.

The focus at the moment is on building many garden beds out of bricks, which requires muscle and precision work. Also ... more inside

Since it´s inception 20 years ago the grounds at Moinhos Velhos have been developed following the organic principles of synergistic gardening & permaculture. There are over 40 mature varieties of fruit & nut trees alone.

Moinhos Velhos is a holistic health retreat for fasting, detoxification, cleansing and purification of body, mind and spirit for our clients. At the same time we want to maintain our permaculture and conventional vegetable gardens and greenhouse to provide us with a greater yield of organic food.

We currently need help on our grounds to assist in new eco-projects, tree & vegetation maintenance & to increase food production yields. We also need help with cooking for staff, juicing for guests, and other day to day tasks. We ask for 6 hours work, five days a week in return for your own room and vegetarian meals.

“The whole is more than the sum of its parts”
We are relaxed open-minded and see life as an ongoing learning experience.
Our project was born from the idea that ‘You have to be the change that you want to see in the world’ and our approach is professional, based on respect, trust and integrity. Our main source of income has been sustainable rural tourism. We have several gardens and a diversity of flowering plants to attract bees and butterflies all year round. There are animals like chickens, dogs and cats and two horses. In Winter we host artists-in-residence, small scale workshops and retreats. We would like to share this place, for a shorter or longer period, with people who associate with our vision that a better world starts with ourselves. We are looking for independent volunteers that are responsible in all aspects (work, cleanliness, attention for surroundings, environment, other people etc.).
We like to have a good time and appreciate a good meal and a glass of wine/bee... more inside

Hi, I am Pedro, a retired teacher, living on a small farm in Central Portugal, nearby the beautiful Serra da Estrela mountains. I build and fly RC planes and on weekends we have also some drone racing training going on, so there is lots to learn for the technologically inclined. As agricultural engineer I also can teach gardening and horse care (although the horses on the farm are too old to ride now) and will be happy to explain and show the local culture and traditions. Currently I need help with maintenance and housekeeping.
