We have an organic farm in the Sierra de Aracena. My parents moved here from East Africa in 1989 and created a little piece of paradise in the valley of Valdelama. The farm is 25 hectares and we have chestnuts, olives and cork trees as well as a large vegetable garden. We use all of our produce to feed our guests who come here on retreat. We organise Yoga and Meditation catered retreats and we have guests from all over the world. This is a peaceful place and we work with nature to provide a tranquil environment for everyone who comes to stay. We would need help with gardening, vegetable picking, animal care, cooking vegetarian meals, cleaning and maintenance.
DIY and building projects
Chance to learn Spanish, learn about farm work, preserving vegetables and enjoy living at the wonderful farm
We would ideally be looking for a couple or two friends who combined can help in the kitchen (cooking/serving for guests during lunch and dinner), looking after the vegetable garden (irrigation, picking vegetables, maintenance), gardening (we have a lot of gardens which need to be watered and look after!) and animal care.
Accommodation is in a guest cottage on the farm or in the main house. All rooms have en suite bathrooms. The cottage has a kitchen for making breakfast and dinner (ingredients available from the farm shop/vegetable garden free of charge). We usually like to have one meal all together each day.
The farm is half an hour's walk from the local village of FUENTEHERIDOS which has bars, restaurants, supermarket, chemist, Post office and bus service to the market town of ARACENA (20mins), SEVILLA (1+1/2 hrs) and PORTUGAL (1 hr). The area is a Natural Park and so the wildlife, flora and fauna have been well conserved and it remains a spectacularly wild and beautiful place.
