I am the owner of a sustainable house in Almeria, Andalucia, Spain.
The house is in a big change offering a living in comunity laboratory since 2020
The house it is sometimes used for small non profit events
from the cultural asociacion
hosting art exhibitions,concerts,yoga
The house is functioning 100% on solar energy and has its own well.
I did run the house for 18 years as a retreat,now it is for sale.
While waiting for a buyer,
friends come and go,staying for weeks or month.
and we share the house living as a comunity
while i am catering for my clients
in houses nearby
The house is situated in a semi desert area
where in former times many spaghetti western
- Sergio Leone -got produced.
and lately the game of thrones...
i am looking for helpers all year
to help with everything in the house
mainly rough garden tasks,woodpainting,
water deposit cleaning,general maintanance
I am very happy to have couples
but of course single travellers are wellcome too
spoken languages Spanish,German and English.
There is WIFI at the house but very limited mobile fone reeeption
The isolated valey is not conected to the modern world,
which is part of our concept,
we are very aware to not use phones in the shared spaces
and turn of the wifi as much as possible and use it only when necesary
There are millions of stars,imense silence to listen to
and a good library
in the nearby village of Lucainena de las Torres
you have wifi in a local bar
and behind the house we have a little sitting area
where mobile fones do work....
volunteers are expected to help with the comunal living tasks
which are cooking,washing dishes after meals,
clean their bathrooms,etc
volunteers can use the yogaroom anytime it is free
I am happy to host easy going,flexible volunteers of all ages
with an interest in healthy happy life...
who do not need daily internet,
can enjoy silence,
are willing to work hard,
need time on their own,
enjoy an ocasional beer or wine
but do NOT TAKE ANY OTHER DRUGS....
This spring we need people for rough work on the property
clearing,weeding,restoring old stone walls
you will need to speak some spanish

my professional backround is hotel buisiness.
since 39 years and i am registered as a trainee in germany.
I offer volunteers the possibility to learn and practice at our house.
There is big need for general maintenance
like wood painting,wood cuting,light building,
water pumping, looking after the solar system.
During the summer month July to September it is too hot for garden work
except a little bit of watering.
But the rest of the year helpers are needed for weeding,path building,clearing spaces etc.
exchange 5 days 4 hours for full board and room plus aprox 1 hour for comunal tasks Cooking,cleaning,dishwashing
Minimum stay 2-3 weeks depending on season
longer stays are possible
during your stay we share all tasks
usualy there will be a breakfast buffet for all of us
the spanish habit is a second tea break at about 11h
and we do love this habit.
at lunchtime i always cook a big meal
and one of the volunteers helps me with that
at night you self cater,or we go out
and sometimes me or one of the others living here
will cook again
depending on weather and the general flow of things...
all housework,washing up
will be shared between everybody staying in the house.
We are pretty healthy living,
vegetarians and vegans are welcome,
small amounts of alcohol are served with the meals-it is Spain!
-but no other drugs shall be consumed
The house closes in January/Febuary
weather can be lousy - even in spain
so its travelling time for the people living here
Usually own room ,sometimes share with one more workawayer
