    Description

    **** Looking for a couple (or 2 friends) to volunteer from around 5th-24th November - job to include house-sitting for a week and again for a long weekend****

    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
    - laughs
    - beers
    - relaxation
    -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! :)

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    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!!)

    Help

    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!
