  • Help


    The project is dedicated to organic crops, in particular hydroponic lettuce, and now I´m reactivating the farm with vegetable sustaineble farm. As it is still a small scale project it is a very intimate and cozy atmosphere. We have all the facilities to make your stay very pleasant.
    The help mainly consists of planting and harvesting hydroponics products and general tasks around the land like irrigation and so forth. Also I work with agroecology and I´m part of a asociaton of agroecology producers. In the house also we need help with cleaning and arranging interiors.

  • Accommodation


    Your accommodation is a private room with access to a bathroom a big kitchen and the rest of the common areas. The place is spacious and bright, with warm water and good insulation.

    The village we live in is very tranquil and an ideal base for trekkings in the surrounding area. As we are located in the Central Highlands, it sometimes can get a bit cold in the nights - but nothing a sweater and a coffee cannot improve.

    En las noches es un poco frío por estar ubicado en la sierra centro del país, pero nada que un café y una chompa mejoren.
