Porto Santo Island - House Reburbishment

  • Marker details
  • DescriptionI'm refurbishing a dream home and I'm looking for someone skilled to a high level of DIY for a period of 6 weeks to 3 months. This opportunity will suit someone who loves the outdoors. There are opportunities of peak walks, water sports. The house is a 5-minute walk from the beach. Porto Santo is a small island with just about anywhere accessible by bicycle. The island and the beach in particular is known for its therapeutic properties so this is especially suitable for those needing a break from it all. Madeira island is accessible by plane and ferry boat.

    Couples are welcome
