    What else ...

    Our 1,5ha farm is located in the nature at 500m altitude in the mountains a little bit wild but surrounded by pines, carob trees, almond trees in the province of Castellon Interior where we enjoy a pleasant climate almost all year round.
    We are totally autonomous in water (well) and electricity (solar energy).

    We have a Boxer dog that has its own fenced-in land and house. We also have two cats in our house and other cats outside.

    Although we have and want the animals, we cannot accept animal(s) except by prior agreement, in which case we will not even take care of the food and accessories in the house where you will be accommodated.

    volunteers with car or motorhome are accepted, we have room.
    If you are in a motorhome, unless previously agreed, we do not make the rooms available for sleeping.

    The nearest town is 5km away with a dispensary, pharmacy, bars and shops, the beach is 35km away and the provincial capital Castellon is 45mn away by car. There are several beautiful places within a reasonable radius of our house - sometimes we are happy to take volunteers on Sundays or Saturdays to visit villages.

    Volunteers will stay in a separate house with electricity, hot and cold water, heating and various services offered (for a minimum stay of 21 days or more).
    We do not accept smokers.

    We accept serious, healthy, responsible, cheerful, dynamic people with a lot of initiative and, if you have a driving license, great!

    In our house there is always joy, smiles. We respect the independence of those who visit and help us.
    We are not demanding, but generous if they conform to a minimum of house rules.

    Sometimes, we may ask for volunteers to look after the house, the animals in our absence not exceeding one week (exceptionally more).
    She ( Joaquina ) has made all her career in the hotel business 5*️️️️️️️️️️️️️ as a receptionist.

    He (Pierre) was a computer and marketing engineer, entrepreneur, with a very rich career... He has also been a 'veteran' pilgrim on the Camino de Santiago and a volunteer hospitality worker in several pilgrim hostels in Spain.
