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.

Fue hermoso trabajar con todo el equipo! Lo primero que me dijeron apenas deje mi mochila y antes de que me empezaran a explicar las tareas fue "siéntete como en tu casa". Fue realmente esa la experiencia y sensación.
Las tareas son fáciles, y el horario muy respetado. Los compañeros de trabajo son hermosas personas.
Gracias por todo Cristina! No pude despedirme de vos, muchas gracias por todo. Manda muchos cariños a Teresa y Fernanda.

Cristina me recibió como si fuera parte de la familia. Las tareas son simples y entiendo que a veces son varios voluntarios ayudando. El lugar es muy cómodo y cerca de la playa. Lo recomiendo!

The place is really cute. Everything is so clean and tidy. The staff room is great as well. Cristina is the most amazing host you can have, she's so nice and cheerful, and makes the best breakfast always with a smile on her face. The tasks are fair and they teach you how to do it everything and the best thing is that you're off to enjoy the beautiful beach by a 5min walk from the guest house.

Christina, her family and Teresa were really nice and friendly! The hours are fair, although I found the work quite intensive, as I was not used to clean. The breakfast was amazing as well as the guesthouse. If you want to relax this is a good place.
