The Experience

We are a home, away from home, in a typical portuguese small town ,3 min walking distance to a long sandy beach, or to small beaches in the middle of rocks, with puddles of crystal water, with sea stars . Our house is in a quiet street , but 2min walking distance to the bars and restaurants area , to the bus stop, and taxis. Volunteers'll be helping in different tasks around the house.

My experience in Alvor was wonderful beyond words. Cristina and Teresa were so nice, friendly and generous, and made me feel like in my own home. The work shift is fair and you are largely recompensated with good accommodation and generous breakfast, besides getting free for long hours to explore the splendid beaches and to appreciate nature in the surroundings. There are good restaurants and bars but they close by midnight (at least in October), so perhaps not ideal for those in search of lively nights. It's a lovely fishermen village perfect to relax and rest. Já estou com saudades!

Esta experiência na guesthouse Ar de Mar foi 1000x vezes melhor do que esperava.
Fui supeeeer bem recebida, obrigada a todos pelo carinho, apoio e boa disposição :) a guesthouse é linda, o pequeno almoço maravilhoso.
O trabalho é fácil e resta muito tempo livre para passear e aproveitar a praia. Recomendo e espero voltar :)

More of a b&b than hostel so sometimes was a bit lonely, but vimy was beautiful and tasks were fair. You work in the morning and have the afternoons free.
