Quinta do sol

You will benefit from living on top of a beautiful mountain, near to a medieval castle and city, near to the Spain border, so you can enjoy your free time and explore another places and countries. You can live the experience of staying in an old-english-gipsy-caravan, with a permaculture landscaping design outside. Quinta do Sol is a place to share, teach and learn. Here you can learn about water management, eco-building, gardening, recycling, upcycling, survival, wood working and about new cultures and languages . You can climb, walk through a medieval-stone-path, swim in a natural lac or river, enjoy yoga or meditation time - you will be close to wild nature.

In a lovely place with old cork trees and spring water, we are a small community trying to building an Oasis for the next generation. I live with my 2 kids, Alice and Olmo; in a forest, wild animals , a dog and some cats. Coming from childhood dream to live in a treehouse, we start this project 8 years ago, in a small caravan in the forest, on the slope off a mountain. Now with much more conforme but still with conscience of where come from things. We are restoring a farm to create a refuge in a very privileged place to care for people and earth. From now 2023, we are looking for permanent gardener and eco-builder to creat nice garden, clean land and rebuild the ruine. Also play music and playing with the kids ;). The food is vegetarian and accommodation is camping: you can stay in a gipsy caravan, tente. You can use the shower and kitchen. It is simple, but lovely, specially in summer or spring time. The week end are free, the food are include and we tack turn for cooking.. We are waiting for you! :)

I left earlier so I can't give a good opinion. It rained too much and you couldn't work outside. The host told me that for what I was going to learn it was not a good date, so I left earlier.

A quinta do Sol é um lugar maravilhoso. Foi uma experiência incrível, nós fomos muito bem acolhidas. Fizemos parte de algo que jamais poderíamos imaginar. Aprendemos a fazer paredes de barro, a fabricação de cerveja e pizzas, participamos de eventos, aprendemos idiomas e conhecemos pessoas maravilhosas.
Ficamos mais tempo que o planejado e foi a melhor escolha, criamos uma relação de amizade e companheirismo, o Fred sempre se disponibilizou para nos ajudar. Foi uma experiência que levarei comigo e lembrarei com muito carinho e saudade, com certeza retornaremos. Obrigada Fred, Alice e Olmo!

It was my first volunteering experience on this platform and I highly recommend it!
I learnt a lot about handyman work, myself and how to live closer to the nature.
Fred, his family, friends and other volunteers were welcoming and we had great conversations during lunches, parties, small trips and work. Also I had a lot of time for myself.
I hope I come again for some workshops one day!
