Experience in using a chainsaw is welcome.

Michelle is a lovely warm woman with a big heart. The Quinta is a beautiful place surrounded by nature, where you will be waking up to birds singing outside:-). It's a lovely place to stay. I was here when there were no guests so it was quiet. I could use my new digital marketing skills to try to improve some texts on web & platforms where Quinta is advertised. I also helped with other tasks when needed. I really felt like a part of the family as we were cooking and eating lunch together every day. I'm very grateful for this time and Michelle and would strongly recommend volunteering here.

This was an amazing experience for me. We weren't able to enjoy the good weather as much, but then, we were able to find some stuff that needed to be done inside! Michelle is a very welcoming, friendly, open minded and a social person! She allowed me to learn a lot of things and to develop skills I will for sure use in my future. I felt like at home thanks to how hospitable Michelle was :-) I would recommend this experience for everyone who is willing to help and to work on the beautiful and relaxing Quinta Japonesa.

Minha experiência na Quinta Japonesa foi maravilhosa. Michelle tem um senso de responsabilidade social com o comércio a comunidade local incrível. Também se preocupa em oferecer a melhor experiência os voluntários mostrando-nos lugares interessantes, entre outras atividades. Foi maravilhoso ouvir os pássaros pela manhã e sentir a natureza a noite. Os filhos da anfitriã são educados e delicados e foi muito bom conviver com eles.
