Ponte Pedra-Melides Coutry House

  • Marker details
  • DescriptionWe are a Portuguese couple around 50 years old, who live with an adopted dog. We manage a country house in Alentejo Coast (7km from Melides) surrounding by nature and we need your help with maintenance to prepare the house for the next season (january to março) or help with the guests in the high season (april to october). All meals and food are included but volunteers must buy their own drinks. Volunteers can learn all about the management of a small tourism, explore the most preserved coast in Europe, get to know local traditions and gastronomy. We are located in the countryside 7km from the beach and from the nearest town. You can use our bikes to explore the surroundings or hitch a ride to the city where we go 2 or 3 times a week. We like quiet nights and getting up early. This is a place to slow down, to enjoy nature, the beach and to live simple.
