Hello my name is Miguel.
I bought this old quinta. I'm in the middle of transforming it into a yoga center and some nice rooms for renting out in the summer. We are situated 8km from one of the most beautiful beaches from the Alentejo.
The farm has 2,5 ha with mostly cork trees.
6 years ago we made our Bio-vegetable garden, and we planted lots of different fruit trees. We also build a green house for the winter. where there is plenty to do still
We started with a new permaculture project to enrich the soil last year, is to be continued.
We are also planning to set up a few tipi tents and build a deck floor for them.
cutting and cleaning poles for the tipi's.
building an outside shower and composting toilet .
creating gardenbeds and landscaping.
Besides having great healthy food from the garden, we are blessed with a fantastic cook.
We are looking for young energetic people for building ,cleaning vegetation, painting and helping in the garden. And of course enjoying our ecological lifestyle!
The quinta is very much a work in progress, with a lot of varied tasks needed to achieve.
We usually work 6 days a week 5 hours a day.
We have chickens and a cat , so unfortunately we can't receive dogs.
It's not only work of course, you also can do horse riding, bicycling, walking in nature or on the beach, and watch the spectacular sunsets.
We will provide you with a shared room with sheets and towels. Or a caravan
Grandola is the nearest town with all kinds of shops, cafe's and a cinema.
Luckily at home we have WiFi
We will be happy to receive you!
When can you visit this host?
