  • I had an amazing time at QuintaLuz, working with the property owner Christine. She and her husband André were very kind and welcoming into their home. I enjoyed many conversations in their quaint home. The work varied each day and was very doable as I was able to explore the local towns/beaches/nature preserves in the afternoons. Christine is a very good cook and will keep you well fed, I tried many new dishes, it was a treat to expand my palate. The property, garden, and orchard are absolutely stunning. They also have three very adorable cats the brighten your day. I would definitely recommend working here. It was my first experience as a WWOOFer and I think it was the perfect fit!

  • J'ai eu la chance de passer un mois et demi à Quintaluz, ce fût une superbe expérience.
    Quintaluz est un havre de paix, une magnifique quinta, un beau jardin et une piscine aux dimensions incroyables !
    Les hôtes sont très accueillants et sympathiques. Le travail est diversifié et effectué en autonomie ce qui est agréable.
    La nourriture du monde préparée par Christine est bio et succulente ! N'hésitez pas à proposer votre candidature :-)

  • Christine is such a lovely woman! This was my first WWOOFing experience and I feel so lucky to have spent 3 weeks at the beautiful QuintaLuz. Every day was a chance to learn something new and try some of Christine's amazing cooking. She has lived and traveled all over the world and has a passion for sharing her knowledge and wisdom with others.
    The work was never too hard and it was rewarding to see the results begin to culminate. QuintaLuz is also very close to the beach and Tavira, which are both great to explore in the afternoon. Merci beaucoup for your kindness and hospitality!

  • I had my first WWOOFing experience with Christine at beautiful QuintaLuz and I could not have asked for a better host to start this journey. I was there for about 4 weeks in October.
    Christine is a very nice and open-minded person with good humor. She makes you feel welcome and can cook like a chef; the food was really good, still miss it sometimes!
    The work was varied and easy going, I also learned a lot about organic life and how to minimize waste.
    I would highly recommend to anyone who wants to volunteer and at the same time wants a little peace and quiet; surrounded by the beautiful garden and 3 lovely cats life feels wonderful there.
    Thank you Christine for a really nice time! Will be back some day to smell your roses ;)
    With love,

  • It was my first woofing experience, and i passed more than 2 months in Quintaluz. It's a very lovely and quite place and Christine (the owner) is a very interesting person, she knows a lot of things about ecological culture and not only, every time i talked with her i learned something about lifestyles and differents cultures. She is an awesome chef too! i learned a lot of things about cooking. Andrè (her husband) is very nice as well, especially when he taught me somenthing about wines! XD They are very helpful and friendly, i haven't other words to explain that, i felt like at home.
    Working and helping in quintaluz is very nice as well, the garden is not too big, but in every kind of work i learned something, and step by step i begin to take care and feeling in love with every plant or tree.
    I will never forget this experience.
    Thank you for all! We will see soon!
    Un abbraccio, Antonio

  • A dream came true to this amazing quite lovely place. Every day is new in the garden with different kind of work. A room with a own bathroom, a big and beautiful house, sweet little cats and very good meals from all over the world. Cooked by Christina, a smart and wonderful person. Andre, her husband, teached me a lesson of Qi Gong and I learned a lot of managing a big garden. I only wanted to stay for 2 weeks but than i stayed for 4 weeks. Thank you Christina and Andre for this very nice time, the good food and i hope i can be back soon. A peaceful place that sometimes you think you are " in the stars" 😊

  • It was my first time being a wwoofer and it couldn't been better! Not just that Quintaluz is such a beautiful place and really well located, it were the lovely Christine and André (and of course Isabel, Kitty, Luisa et Caramel) that made my stay wonderful. I felt welcome from the very first moment and recieved so much kindness. Wether it was frech, the whine, new recepies or knowlegde about all sorts of plants, I learned a lot during my stay and I am really thankful for getting to know them (and their daughter as well)!
    Miss you already and hopefully see you again some time soon!
    Bisous, Anna

  • 15 days that I spent in Quintaluz were just perfect and I enjoyed it so much I couldn´t even imagine before. Christine and André are great people, so, so kind, I learned a lot useful things for life especially from Christine, merci a toi! If you want to live for a while in calm paradise between oranges, in harmony with these "second parents" and close to very nice beach and places, definitely go there, but I warn you: you will not want to leave and maybe some tears appear in the end :)) Obrigadinha para todo, Christine and André, and I hope to see you very soon!

  • Christine and André made me feel pretty comfortable with my first Wwoofing-experience. They are both very open minded and lovely personalities i have learned a lot from. QuintaLuz is a quiet, beautiful farm near the ocean. A Wonderful place that really worth it.
