Ponte Pedra Melides Country House

We are in the most preserved coast in Europe The house is surrounded by green spaces, silence reigns, interrupted only by the sounds of the countryside. We favor a simple environment, authentic, cozy and comfortable, where luxury is nature itself. Between the countryside and the beach are the most beautiful and well-preserved coastal areas of southern Europe where you can still find true natural treasures: pristine beaches, lagoons, places lost in time and walking trails. It`s the ideal place to stroll, rest and live with nature. You can easily go to Lisbon or Algarve. Free WiFi available 24 hours.

We are a couple with 50 years. We like to get along, meet new people and relax. We like to read, sports and travel. We will help you to know our beautiful Alentejo coast. You will be part of the family. Our team is very frendly.

A piece of my heart will always stay at Ponte Pedra. Grateful to have been part of this Amazing team! I felt home and at my place from the very first moment I arrived. The hosts Ana and Jorge (and of course Farouk José & Açorda Maria)are the best hosts you can have; kind, respectful and welcoming, towards us the volunteers, their basic team and the guests. For me they were the best mentors I had, by allowing me to be the best version of myself. I had everything I needed; comfortable accommodation, delicious food, satisfaction of the work I did, amazing people I met &dogs & just pure happiness!

I can't say enough good things about my time with Ana and Jorge at Ponte Pedra. Everyone was so welcoming and I instantly felt like a part of the team. The location is beautiful and perfect for slowing down and enjoying nature. The work was fair and made enjoyable by the wonderful team they've assembled. Anyone would be lucky to get to volunteer there.

This was an amazing experience and I can really recommend to do your Volunteering here. Ana & Jorge are lovely and passionate hosts - for the guests as well as for the volunteers. I almost felt like part of their family. You can be really lucky if you get chosen to stay in this little paradise within beautiful nature. Ponte Pedra is just beautiful, perfect for relaxing (it is very quiet and remote) and go exploring the surrounding beaches and coast (ideally by car or bicycle).
The work was as agreed, the team was respectful and tasks were well explained. I felt worshipped for my work.
