European couple from UK and Belgium, building a house and language school in the mountains of southern Ecuador. Located in the small town of Vilcabamba and close to Peru. We are in need of volunteers to help us with building and garden work on a one hectare piece of land. Couples welcome. We prefer a 2 week minimum for our guests so its gives you time to integrate into our work and lives. As we continue slowly into 2018 we are looking for qualified people (active, enthusiastic thinkers, not spectators) helping with our school accommodation and volunteer accommodation building projects. All working guests MUST have a sense of humour!!! Please be specific about the dates you are requesting to avoid multiple emails requesting this information.

We are located in a beautiful valley surrounded my mountains on all sides. Hiking is superb and we have a bunch of maps to get you our there exploring the hills. Horse riding in big here and so is mountain hiking. Our nearest large town is Loja (40km) so if you need things that the local shops don't supply then please bring them with you. We have great restaurants in town so if you want to get away from rice and chicken, this is the place!
Limited internet access
We have pets
We are smokers
We offer Spanish classes as we are soon to open as a dedicated Spanish language school. Many local families to interact with and an opportunity to help giving free English lessons in the community with young children.
