    Help

    We need some help pressure washing, general gardening, cutting back oliage on bushes etc, etc. If the weather is bad we will ask our volunteer to do some inside painting. Also some indoor tasks.
    Ron used to be the most inventive D.I.Y'er ever. His philosophy on life is never to throw anything away until you are sure it can't be used for something else! My hobbies are knitting, making toys, sewing, writing and gardening.
    Because of our age you will probably be helping mainly on your own!

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Th village has a few shops and bars and a local community centre, plus a sort-of disco. Xativa, which has its own castle is about 5 miles away but there is only one bus a day, so we would be happy to take you there by car. From there you can get trains to Valencia, which is a lovely city, or to the coast. You will also have the chance to visit the Cova Negra in Xativa, Xativa castle, and the Tous reservoir Volunteers come at their own risk and are advised to take out insurance.
