The Experience

Hi, I'm Paul and I living on a two hectare farm in the beautiful Serra de São Mamede Natural Park. The present tasks include a veggie garden to prepare for next season, terraces to be cleaned, olive-trees to be pruned, grapevines and hazels. There are also other tasks, like restoring the houses and some dry-walls, painting, construction, building with wood. and sometimes childcare... Enjoy the Portuguese countryside!

I had the most amazing week volunteering at Paul's! He is an incredible host, the view is breathtaking and his daughters are absolutely adorable. I learned a lot about gardening and sustainability and he was very patient and flexible with the tasks, always making sure I understood what needed to be done and felt comfortable doing it. I'm very grateful for the whole experience and all the talks we had. I definitely recommend this place to everyone!

The moments at Paul's farm were incredible and I will always carry them in my memory and heart. It was my 1st experience at worldpackers and the tasks I did were light and flexible:some cleaning on the farm,small vegetable harvests, spending time with the girls, who are very independent, smart and brave. There, I ate delicious food without meat,drank water from a natural source and used energy generated by photovoltaic panels, which has been making me rethink my resources consumption. The farm river is beautiful and I also went with them to a river pool, a lake, and an amazing full moon party!

My boyfriend and I really enjoyed our stay! The working hours were flexible and we learned a lot about gardening and sustainability in general. We also enjoyed our talks about psychology and to hear about his life. His daughters are extremely intelligent and friendly from the beginning. We felt really comfortable and would definitely recommend it!!

Paul is a great host. The experience in his place was just amazing, I learned a lot and developed new skills. He let us choose our job for the day, so every day I did something different. In the free time I loved exploring the surroundings, the river, laying down in the hammock and eating delicious food. We also went to a town nearby and shared time with his friends and his daughters. I really enjoy sharing time with him, his daughters, other volunteers, and of course Odin. It was a mind changing experience for me. Thank you for everything!
