    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    This is a beautiful, peaceful and, if you will allow me, magical area full of tradition and history. The locals love to celebrate and you will often find some sort of Fiesta going on. As for us, we are travellers at heart and have many stories to tell. as well as speaking English, German and Spanish.

    In the daily routine, there is always something new to learn on the finca. There is always the chance to try your hand at something new and we hope that our helpers can teach us a thing or two!

    **As well as what is listed below, we are currently looking for long term help with maintenance and repairs. If you have experience with cement work, plastering, small repairs around the home etc. then please get in touch**

    We are looking for animal lovers, open-minded and down to earth helpers to support us around the home and garden. It is important to us that you can work autonomously as well as in a team environment. You MUST have initiative and an eye for the finer details, as well as be flexible when something pops up. Our minimum stay is three weeks and if it is a good fit, we would also consider long term placements. The work changes with the seasons but we always need help with cooking and cleaning, gardening, pool maintenance, firewood and much, much more ;-) Of course, you don't have to do all of the above, but let us know what your strengths are or what you really enjoy doing. We don't expect you to be part of our business activities but hope you can take a bit of weight off our shoulders.

    Please be aware we process our Workaway responses once a week on Mondays.
