Fig trees, almond trees, olive trees and carob trees. We are planning to make a part of the land as a rural tourist area, where people can stay in one of the 7 old houses of which a few are still ruins. For the last 20 years no maintenance has been done at all. So we can use a lot of help in cleaning old trees and in the summer picking the figs, carobs and almonds. But also gardening work can be part of it. You will have your own little cottage to stay. Beautiful nature for walks, or bike rides (we have two mountain bikes you can use). You can also go into the lively centre of Lagos to discover the nightlife. Or just go to one of the beautiful bays of Lagos to spent your days off.

This newly aquired and neglected 2ha farm needs general land cleaning.

We live on 4.5 Ha of land in central Portugal. The land has had no one farming it for about 30 years! It is steeply terraced and severly overgrown. There are many old olive trees and vines, which we are trying to restore. We are currently clearing the land and rebuilding the stone terrace walls (some have collapsed) with a view to running it as an organic small holding. Oh and we have two dogs!
