  • Description


    We have several chalets and camping plots on our protected forest but at the moment we have had to shut down temporarily due to the virus. We are now just looking for someone(s) to help with odd chores as well as an olive picking squad to help us gather as many olives as possible to make oil for our own consumption.

    We'd really prefer a couple to come and look after the finca long term but individuals are also welcome. Any experience with farming and/or general maintenance would be great. We are off grid and get our electricity solely from solar panels and our water comes from a well.

    Whilst exploring this protected nature reserve you will come across some stunning pieces of Roman architecture and lots of wild plants and animals. Plenty to explore.

    Looking for long term volunteers (preferably a couple) to look after the place as well as picking some olives and almonds. We are also renovating constantly so you can fit in where you feel comfortable.

    Seasoned builders, farmers and meticulous cleaners most welcome!

  • Accommodation


    For couples, potentially your own house. If it isn't available then you will have your own room with a double bed, private entrance and terrace.

    For individuals, you will probably get your own room but if not it will be a single bed in dormitory.
