Host AG077

  • 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.
