**** Looking for volunteers from around 17th September for a couple of weeks minimum...to include a couple of weekends house-sitting...must be a couple or pair of friends, no individual volunteers please as we don't like leaving just one volunteer here when we are away as we are very remote****
Hello there! We are looking for volunteers with lots of drive, energy and common sense who have a love of adventure, nature and the outdoors to work alongside us helping with a variety of tasks that include building, gardening, cleaning, painting etc.. Specifically volunteers who aren't afraid to get dirty!!
We have a beautiful, rural, two-hectare organic finca near the Spanish town of La Codosera but bordering the Portuguese nature reserve of the Serra Sâo Mamede.
Our ideal volunteers would:
- be happy to live off the beaten track (although we do have a restaurant/bar down the road)
- be animal lovers
- help with approximately 5 hours of tasks 5 days a week
We work hard for those 5 hours but what we offer in exchange for your help:
- comfortable beds
- great food
-freshwater swimming pool (May-Oct only)
- tonnes of films, books, music
- beautiful nature and gorgeous walks from our door
- internet access
- company (if you want it) or peace and quiet (if you don't) :)
Looking forward to meeting you! :)
Cooking / shopping
Help with Eco project
Help in the house
We love to share ideas and recipes and have picked up so much great knowledge from previous volunteers...
Although we are off the beaten track, we have bikes so you can get to local sites and we will always take you to any local festivals that are going on while you are here (and there are lots!!)
We need help with all sorts of work in the garden, building and around the house - the tasks you do depend on your preferences and/skills. We all work really hard - please don't apply if you are looking for a cheap holiday! - but it's rewarding to share the experience and our volunteers return to us again and again and send their friends and family to volunteer with us too!
English, Spanish, French, Portuguese, German
We have a double bedroom available for volunteers. Or a caravan at the top of the garden with beautiful views for those who want to be a little more in touch with nature :)
Limited internet access
We have pets
We are smokers
