About the workproject

We need 2 volunteers

Paula and Marc have a Guest House in the countryside near Olhão. Inside, there are 3 houses, our own house and a studio for our volunteers. Paula works with the administrative part of it, Marc with the outside. The work load is often too heavy only for the two of us, therefore we are grateful for any help we can get. Besides fruit picking in different periods of the year, we also need help for the maintenance and building. Our newest projet would be the remodeling of an old house inside the premises, starting November 16. It would be great if you could join then too!
During summer, we can only receive 2 persons (sharing the studio) or a couple) at a time. If there are rooms available in our renting houses, our helpers can also stay there.
If you think you would like to come and join us, please feel free to contact us.
