The Experience

We always need help with pet-sitting, in order to be able to give us a break and go away for the weekends. Also, we need help with cleaning our home, taking care of our garden and composting, weeding, and other outside tasks. There is always something to clean around here! Also, we have the specific project of cleaning the land adjacent to ours which is an abandoned lake.

What a great experience!!! Lovely family and a beautiful place! It was definitely one of the best times I've had in Portugal... delicious dinners, remarkable adventures, tasks that I love to do, kind neighborhood and simply a huge list of good memories :)




Our experience was more than wonderful, Laura and Miguel opened the doors of HIS FAMILY, each with a well defined personality (and by this we mean his children) adorable and good brothers. It was our first experience as worldpackers, our first experience in another continent (we are from America, Chile) and we only have words of thanks for all of you (Laura, Miguel, Ollie, Kadness, Leia, Bilbo, Rob and Delilah) never change. We will definitely go back.




This was our - my and my boyfriend's - first experience and it couldn't have been better. The house for volunteers is very clean and spacious, besides the bedroom, has a bathroom, living room and a kitchen.
Laura and Miguel were very kind, making us feel at home and they are very fun people to get along with. They have 5 cute dogs that are part of the family.
The work was not tiring and there was enough free time. They several times hiked us to the train station, making it very easy to get to know new places.
We highly recommend the experience and hope to return someday!!
