In Octobre 2020 we (Maayke and Mike) emigrated with our daughters (2 and 4) to Andalusia (southern Spain). We have bought a villa with mango farm (1.3 hectares) that we want to expand with many other fruit and vegetables. In addition, we want to realize 2 guesthouses.
Our main goal for the future is to be so self-sufficient as possible and to eat from our own piece of land. We also want to be eco-friendly (use solar panels, recycle our water etc.). There's a lot to do in and around our house and we would love to have people around us that can help with building our dream.
Help with Eco Projects
DIY and building projects
Help around the house
You can enjoy the beautiful nature and weather of our region, our hospitality and you can learn about mango farming and building a (permaculture) garden. You can also learn some dutch (or English) if you want.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
All the help is very welcome (renovate the casita, working in the garden, knowledge of permaculture etc.). We are at the beginning of our big project (regenerative agriculture and being self-sufficient in many ways).
This host offers a language exchange
We would love to learn Spanish. We can teach Dutch (or English) instead.
You will have your own casita (little house on our land) if it's free, or you can stay in our house. It's also possible to stay in a camper(van) or a tent, with all the facilities of our house you need.
A driver's license (and a car) is highly recommended. We live on a hill and there is no public transport (bus, train etc.) nearby.
Limited internet access
We have pets
We are smokers
Can host families
If the camper(van) is not too big, it is possible to stay on our land.
Pets are allowed in consultation.
