The Experience

Help us to take care of our guest house and garden tea house, by doing some gardening and recivein the guest in the house and in the bar. The guest house stays in front of the beach, so you can enjoy the ocean. It's 15 minutes from the city center and surrounded by bars and restaurants. You can also enjoy the nature and the fresh air from the island. We love animals and plants and we do not kill any firm of life being. Love&peace it's our mantra.

Working at Pes Verdes was an absolute pleasure. Everyday Margarite would make delicious vegan pancakes, the work wasn’t too hard and there is a choice of beaches a short walk away. Margarite also took me to the theatre & the hot springs at Lagoa do Fogo. The tea house had amazing food & teas and the guesthouse had a fully equipped kitchen, often with free food to enjoy. The island has been so beautiful to explore! Would highly recommend coming to Pes Verdes!

Pés Verdes foi minha primeira experiência pelo Worldpackers e posso dizer que não poderia ter escolhido melhor lugar pra começar :) Margarida é uma pessoa incrível, dinâmica, alegre e muito positiva. O trabalho é tranquilo, o lugar muito agradável e todas as pessoas que tive contato foram muito receptivas. Os Açores é um lugar de tirar o fôlego, a ilha é simplesmente maravilhosa! Um lugar que voltarei com certeza.. Só tenho a agradecer a Margarida e a todos que me acolheram tão bem!
