This summer, I had a wonderful time at Afonso's and Marie's farm in Odeceixe. Even though I was only there for one week, I got every opportunity to work, learn and contribute to the farm and household. Marie, Afonso and their son live on a beautiful farmland in the Alentejan hills. Besides the daily work in the house, there are plenty of things to do in the medronho orchards and in the vegetable garden. In your spare time, there's plenty of opportunity to discover the surrounding nature or go the lovely beaches around Odeceixe, which are only at 5 km from the farm. Marie and Afonso are also the most welcoming people you can imagine. They are ready to give you a good time, put you to work and teach you all they know about farming. I am definitely going back!
