Utopia Guest House

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 themselves, 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!

Best travel experience of my life! I wholeheartedly recommend Utopia to anyone seeking an extraordinary adventure. I've met the most incredible and interesting people who made my stay wonderful. Alongside the fantastic Utopia team, volunteers are equipped with nearly everything they might need during their stay and more. The tasks are quite easygoing and executed precisely according to schedule. Just like Utopia, the surroundings are breathtaking. There's plenty to do like surfing, cycling, running, partying, and more. Thank you Utopia for an unforgettable experience ❤️ hope to come back soon!
