    ¡Hola,hola everyone!
    An energeyic and enthusiatic man or couple (women+man) is needed from as soon as possible in September, for a minimun of three weeks.
    I have been hosting workawayers for more than ten years and happy to say: always diferent, always great!!!
    My name is Gonzalo. I need help to keep the surroundings of my farmhouse nice and clean and also some construction and maintenance. You know... nature is always telling you what to do and you never know until it comes!!!
    We live in a riverside farm in inland Andalucia, in the village of Zahara de la Sierra, Cádiz province, in the Grazalema Natural Park which it provides great mountain and walking area.
    Thank you very much.

    Since I am Spanish you will definitely have the opportunity to improve your Spanish if you wish, if not English or Italian will be the language to communicate.

  • Help


    I am looking for anyone, as easy going as I am on whatever stuff that needs to be done in the garden. Help it always depends on the time of year and weather conditions. There will be always something to help around: general gardening, land clearing, watering, weeding, wood cutting, collecting stones to build dry stone walls, restoring fences, planting seeds and plants, pruning and maintenance of olive and fruits trees, olive harvest, cleaning around, etc
    I accept only workawayers for a minimun of 3 weeks and you must be older than 23 years old. We normally do 5 hours in the morning (09:00 till 14:00), then we have lunch together and afterwards it's time off until next day. Weekends are free time.

  • Accommodation


    Accommodation would be, depending on availability, either in one of our guestrooms or in our caravan.
    Meals are provided Monday to Friday. Normally we have lunch together and provide your food to help yourself for breakfast and dinner.
    Weekends are made to be relax. If you do not fancy going away somewhere for the weekend, you can either cook for yourself or eat out (eating out is very reasonable priced)

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We ask for 5 hours help a day from Monday to Friday. In exchange, I can offer you a stay in a beautiful surrounding and a warm and welcoming atmosphere at my farm. Please consider that the farm is 2 km (40 min walking) away from our village, Zahara de la Sierra, and that I cannot provide a car, although I can give you some lifts whenever I am going out myself. I can provide bikes.
