Utopia Guesthouse

You can expect a good accommodation with a nice pool. We are a motivated team that are used to work with volunteers. Usually there are ~8 volunteers from different parts of the world. You have 3 beaches (Arrifana, Monte Clerigo and Amoreira) 5 minutes by car and beautiful sight seeing, amazing hikes. If you like outdoor activities you have a lot to discover. The weather is sunny and warm. In the winter it gets cold at night but as the sun comes out the temperature goes up and you feel like you were in spring. There are beautiful are great sceneries and a lot of outdoor activities for you to enjoy (surf, hiking, beach, fishing). The Southwest of Portugal is one of the most hidden secrets of Europe. Or maybe not...come and discover by yourself! Welcome to our Guesthouse!!!!

Our team is made up of 7 people that choose to live in the south of Portugal to have time for themselved, work hard whilst having fun at the same time and have a huge motivation to enjoy life. We have worked with volunteers for more than 10 years and have had a total of more than 300 volunteers. We know how to take care of you and organize tasks. We need help in housekeeping and during the breakfast buffet that is served to the guests. In winter we also do a lot of maintenance work and sometimes some gardening tasks. Expect to have a lot of free time but also to have to work hard. We believe that we are very open and establish a close relationship. We are open to improve and change procedures as far a balance is achieved. I am 54 years old and left Lisbon to Aljezur 31 years a go....Why? I spent my vacations here and love to surf around here. Follow the dream! The staff is young people from 26 to 35 years old from different countries, different vibes. All are following the dream. Welcome to our Guesthouse!

If I have to talk about my experience in Utopia, I can't find words to express how my life has changed.I have met wonderful people and I have lived moments that I will remember all my life, Portugal has something captivating and I have fallen in love.
The place is magical and transmits immense peace, but what has made me fall in love the most about this trip has been the people.
The volunteers (my friends and my super meu models) and the hostel workers became a big family for me. I arrived a bit lost with myself and each one of them has been an important piece in me and now i feel complete.

Utopia foi uma experiência incrível que vai ficar marcada sempre na minha vida, fiz amizades com todos os funcionários e também com os voluntários de diversas partes do mundo, otimo lugar para se reconectar com a natureza e curtir praias e trilhas !
um abraço a todos que fizeram parte desta história comigo !

I spent three incredible weeks at Utopia and wish I could have stayed more. The staff welcomes everyone with open arms and the volunteers made me feel at home from the first day. Aljezur is a very small town however there are a lot of fun things to do. The work is pretty chill since you work in pairs and the hours are respected. I would 100% recommend this experience!

I had a great couple weeks at utopia! The team of volunteers and the staff were awesome people and I felt at home super fast. The work is clear and hours are very well respected. I got to try the breakfast and housekeeping shifts which was a great experience. I was pretty sick for a part of my stay and I wish I could have been more helpful when I was there but the staff were super accommodating and understanding. I made great memories cooking group dinners with the volunteers, going on drives with Ferrari 🏎️🏎️chilling at the beach and watching many sunsets! Lots of love - DJ Gabs

Mi primera experiencia y la recomiendo totalmente, es un lugar muy cálido, con muy buenas y lindas instalaciones tanto para huéspedes como para voluntarios. Se respetan las horas de trabajo, es divertido, y siempre hay cositas para comer durante el día en el refri. Hermosa experiencia me siento muy agradecida por todos los momentos vividos
