  • Description


    We bought an old hotel in the province of Malaga. Near the Caminito del rey. The house is surrounded by a citrus orchard. We have oranges, lemons and tangerines. But the land also grows olives, pomegranates, figs, pecans and persimmons, among others. We are looking for enthusiastic people who could help us with the renovation and/or possibly with the garden. We have a separate cottage (4-6 persons) available on our property for help.
    In exchange for your help, we offer a nice place to stay overnight and we offer three meals a day. Workaway hours are of course negotiable but our preference is, for example, to start around nine o'clock. Then we offer breakfast around ten/half-eleven. We eat at Spanish times here😉.
    And then we work until 14.00/14.30 and eat a full lunch. After that, you can then use the day to relax or explore the area.
    You can prepare the evening meal yourself in your own kitchen (we will provide for the ingredients for this meal) or we can deliver a meal at the casita.
    Furthermore, everyone is always free to pick and eat/drink all the fruits and vegetables from our garden.
