Some building work still going on, mostly finishing work and painting. Always some gardening to do! All while you enjoy good healthy food and walks in the surrounding forest. English language practice is available!

Program Details

I offer a place for people who like to be involved in all aspects of running a house with an emphasis on gardening and cooking. There are no fixed hours, we do what has to be done when needed and you will find that the weather is often important in deciding what we do each day.
I offer tours of the region to visit some of the beauty that is to be seen around me: Towns, the coast, chapels, and natural landscape features. Music and other social events are organized all year round in the village or nearby.
I prefer people who do not need to be connected online at all times!

Activities & Shift

Help generally does not start before 10 am. The position is not suitable for people who want to use me as a base for their own agenda hoping to finish work early to go visiting.
I am looking for flexible people wishing to immerse themselves in a friendly home helping with diverse activities with the garden being the main focus.


All meals are cooked and eaten together. This is important to the harmony of the exchange. If you have any issues with food please let me know before coming.
I provide 3 meals a day, all snacks eaten outside these meals are to be bought by you.
