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.

I had an awesome time at Ponte Pedra. It is such a beautiful space and everyone you meet is so friendly and welcoming. Ana and Jorge have created a great experience and are such caring and interesting people - they genuinely care about you having the best possible time.
The work is varied, interesting and shifts are fair. Food is generous and always yummy :) On time off you get to enjoy the sunshine, pool and local beaches - a really great opportunity to get away to the quiet of rural Portugal.

Mi experiencia fue maravillosa. Me sentí bienvenido y cuidado desde mi llegada. La comida es deliciosa. El personal es increíble, especialmente Anna y Jorge, siempre están preocupados por el bienestar de los voluntarios y su experiencia. El lugar es asombroso, con un espacio muy cómodo y un entorno hermoso para explorar con muchas playas. en el trabajo se cumplen los horarios y son flexibles. Es un lugar tranquilo y relajado, perfecto para conectar con la naturaleza. Recomiendo este voluntariado sin dudarlo. Decidí quedarme 2 semanas más de lo planeado. Una experiencia increíble e inolvidable.

Fue una experiencia muy linda!
Fue mi primera experiencia como voluntaria y la verdad la recomiendo. Es un lugar donde vas a desconectarte para conectar con uno mismo. Tiene unas energias hermosas Ana, Jorge y todo el equipo!
Por problemas personales, tuve que retirarme antes y no hubo ningún inconveniente!
Es un lugar al que sin dudas volveré!

My time in Ponte Pedra was truly amazing. It's like home away from home. The hosts, Ana and Jorge, are one of the most wonderful people I have met on my travels. They really will look after you. You will be lucky to get a place in here, away from all the hustle and bustle of the city, free to enjoy the nature.
The work is fair and hours respected. It's not hard work, once you know what is expected of you. Don't hesitate to ask, they are happy to help you out.
Thess will cook amazing meals.
And the beach is only 20 minute bike ride away for you to explore and enjoy.

This was my first experience as a volunteer and I feel so grateful for the time I spent there, it was amazing! It was exactly what I was looking for: peace, quiet, being surrounded by nature, close to the sea. I wasn't expecting to meet such kind people like Ana and Jorge. They are caring, open-minded, supportive and sympathetic. All staff people are lovely (specially Thess who cooks the most delicous meals for us) It's a very nice place to be, they've the cutest dogs and if you're lucky you meet incredible people like I did! I can say I felt at home in this amazing portuguese family :)
