    Our workaways will learn to live ‘off grid’. We love to cook and exchange favourite recipes. There will be a great opportunity to improve language skills as the town has little ‘tourism’…and our language is English😜

    Travellers will have a private sleeping and living area….one of the first projects is to renovate this guest accommodation to have a functional toilet/shower, so these facilities are shared with us for the moment. Bedding, towels, basic toiletries and laundry provided. Free WiFi. Use of pool, weather permitting.
    Lunch and evening meals, bottled water, tea and coffee will be provided....sorry but we cannot cater for ‘special’ diets….this includes a vegetarian diet.

    What else ...

    Our finca is rural, 2 kilometres from a well serviced town with restaurants and bars…easily accessible on foot. We are about 15 mins from the coast and 20 mins from the Ebro delta. Because of the rural situation of our finca we feel that this placement is best suited to a couple or at least two people travelling together….own transport would be of benefit.
