    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Archidona is not on the traditional tourist map and as such is a very traditional town. There are great opportunities to discover life in this rural (but not cut off from the near big cities) town, meet real Spaniards and put yourself out there in the local bar with a beer or coffee to learn Spanish. In addition we are surrounded by amazing countryside which is superb for cycling or walking, climbing, plus the town has a great local gym and 1/2 olympic swimming pool, so plenty of things to do! If Spanish history is your interest we are within easy distance of the major Andalusian cities which you can visit for a day or two on your time off.

    In exchange for helping us, you have accommodation in the guest house, so you will need to be polite and aware that guests are around you. You will be provided with a food allowance allowing you cater for yourself in the guest house kitchen so you will need to be clean, tidy and happy to share your space with the owners.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    A great opportunity to see the real Spain and polish your spanish in a busy working town. An insight into hospitality with great guests (largely northern european) and have a fun time! Nearly all of the workawayers who have visited us have taken the opportunity to travel extensively in Andalucía and visit all of the cultural highlights and in addition enjoy all of the outdoor activities that are available here.
