My experience at Quinta do Mocho was great! Susanne is an excellent host, she was very responsive on the messaging system of the WWOOF website, and she picked me up from the bus station when I arrived in Lagoa. She was also very available throughout my stay (thank you again for the power adapter), and she shared a lot of information on the area as well as many good tips on where to go and what to see.
Work for me included some gardening and some construction. Even though I stayed for only few days, I learned a lot and really enjoyed my outdoor activities. You should bring a hat, work gloves and sun protection, while boots are not necessary. Sport shoes should be enough.
The WWOOFers' accommodation has all what you need, with a fully equipped kitchen (very clean) and a bathroom with shower (with combi boiler, which means you don’t run out of hot water). Towels and bed linen are also provided.
Besides juicy oranges (53 trees as of today!), Susanne grows many vegetables at the farm, including lettuce, tomatoes and herbs. With the basil you can make delicious fresh pesto :) The surrounding area is also nice to explore, and Quinta do Mocho itself is 3-4 Km away from 3 beaches. There are 3 bikes, so you can get there in about 15 minutes.
I had a great time at Quinta do Mocho, and I definitely recommend it to anyone.
