  • Description

    Description

    We are a couple, Matteo is Italian and Mercedes is Argentine. We both love travelling and we have opened our guesthouse in march 2016.

    This is an old farmhouse transformed into Sustainable Guesthouse, immersed in a working ranch. It is located in the countryside, at 10 km from San Antonio de Areco town.
    The house works with solar energy for electricity and water heating, wastewater biological treatment, low energy consumption, among other sustainable attributes.
    We have an organic veggie-garden, a beautiful green park with large trees, and we cook homemade and healthy food.

    Why do we seek for volunteers?
    We think that Workawayers add a lot of value and fresh energy to our place; because you are travellers as well, and you come from different countries, it helps create a travelling atmosphere in this house in the middle of the pampas. We appreciate a lot your suggestions and ideas, which may come from your previous experiences, or just because you are seeing things from outside.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You can learn about renewable energy, from the vegetable garden and also many dishes from the kitchen. You can learn how to carry on a similar project of your own one day. See this beautiful place and learn about local culture and traditions. If you are lucky you may see some cattle work, and you will have a horse ride for sure. You will practice Spanish and English language.

    Help

    We need people helping us with daily maintenance and duties (housekeeping, bedroom preparation, gardening and outdoor tasks, daily operation of the guesthouse) and also helping with guests (guest attention and help with breakfast and food service).
    We seek for friendly and proactive helpers!! Spanish knowledge and experience in hospitality will be very much valued.

    WE SEEK FOR COUPLES !!

    Depending on the time of the year and the profile of the volunteers we may also have some projects to develop. For these projects we prefer and value most the following abilities: Carpentry, Building, Painting, Gardening. When there are no guests, we may work with these projects.

    Volunteers are expected to help 5 days a week. Days off will be weekdays (usually Tuesday and Wednesday) as weekends are busy.

    Sometimes volunteers may cook for themselves, and other times we will cook for you. We expect you to help with clearing and dishwashing.
    We like to have fun and a drink together as well :)

    The minimum stay is of 1 month, as it takes a few weeks to learn the daily tasks. The first week is a trial period for both parts.

    WE OFFER INCENTIVE PAY FOR VOLUNTEERS WISHING TO COMMIT TO 3+ MONTHS
