Michelle and Thomas are really nice and hard working people. They were very helpful with everything we need! I stayed in Casa Tavares a Villa for Digital Nomads :) the guest house is a very nice place located in a rural area 20-30 minutes from main beaches so it's great to have a car so you can move around. Regarding to the tasks I helped with Communication and Marketing, and I really wish that this mini resort could be enjoyed for many people because it's worthwhile! Hope to come back next year to visit them! I really wish them the best!

Michelle and Thomas are very welcoming and knowledgeable about everything you need to know. They are both very funny personalities who just want to ensure that the Quinta is well taken care of so that guests can enjoy it. The tasks are as outlined and you can create your own timeline to complete the tasks. The Friday Pizza Nights were one of my favourites as Michelle's kids would join in and we would watch a movie together. Nothing but the highest praise for Michelle and Thomas and it's not goodbye but see you later!❤️❤️❤️

The guest house was a great experience. A great place to completely disconnect and enjoy the nature around you. Tasks were simple - washing and cleaning but were spread throughout the day. The volunteering car made our whole experience as it gave you a chance to explore local towns like Nazare and Obidos(which I'd highly recommend). Michelle and Tomaz are two very interesting people, full of knowledge. The lunches we had made for us were 10/10. We would highly recommend this experience for those looking to disconnect. We both have so much love for Michelle and Tomaz and wish them all the best
