  • Description


    I'm Miguel !
    A year ago my wife and I started a small guesthouse. We transformed an old bar on the ground floor, into a small familly hostal. I have since added a small apartment next door.
    I am looking for talented travellers, specifically artists, handyworkers, to help transform this hostel into an iconic, homey space.
    There will be a varity of tasks to do.  I want art on the walls, furniture, and in the garden.(patio) I need to make general household repairs such as painting and fixing doors.
    I would also like help running the hostel/guesthouse. This includes welcoming and checking in guest, Managing when I go out of town, if that is somehting you can handle. There are not many guest at the moment, but one never knows.
    You'll be made to feel very welcome and a part of our family which includes our housekeeper, two older sons and 3 small children. If you are a social person who likes to have fun in a family enviorment than this is your place.
    I suggest that volunteers come for one week at first , the if it all works out we can negotiate the duration of the stay.
