- Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we recommend you to stay informed about WHO's and local authorities' recommendations.
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.Learn more

I didn't like the work itself that much, because instead of housekeeping we were helping them to move. So we were basically packing boxes the whole time and didn't work in the hostel at all.(The other volunteers said it's usually different.) But Christina is really nice. She even invited us for lunch a couple of times and we were allowed to use her private pool. It was fun to meet that many new people. So in general, the work wasn't fun but if you are okay with working hard for a couple of hours for being around nice people and spending your time near the beach this experience might be for you

Cristina is the best hostess of all, always concerned about the volunteer's well-being. The guest house is amazing, right in the center of Alvor and the beaches are very close. It was a very good experience, if you are interested in getting to know this region of the Algarve, I highly recommend you apply for this volunteer.

Volunteering in Alvor Ar De Mar is simply wonderful: this place is a very beautiful guest house in the picturesque village of Alvor, and it's very close to stunning beaches. The staff is very kind and inclusive, and they make everyone feel at home. The tasks are not that difficult, and sometimes we finished working before the agreed time. I highly recommend to have your experience here! Muito obrigado Cristina, João, Joaquim e Gugu! 🥰

It was my first experience and was really great. I’ve enjoyed my staying in Al de Mar. Cristina and her husband are such a good persons I am really thankfull for everything. The first days job was a bit difficult for me but only because I am not used to do it. After a while I think I managed :) A the end the job itself is not hard and after there is a lot of free time. I want to thank also to another volunteers: Joel, Ismael, Marthe and Berte ! I had really great time With you :) Cristina Thank you once again 💕

I had a really good time at Cristina’s guesthouse. The tasks are not too hard and she will make sure you know what to do. I’m happy I met this amazing family in Alvor and it was very nice that they took us to activities so we could feel a little bit like a local! I hope I can come back one day!! Thanks for everything!
