Hi! We are Luna and Eduardo, brother and sister living in our family home in a beautiful valley on the south side of Sierra Nevada, 1 hour away from Granada and 30 minutes to the beach.
This summer we hope to welcome motivated couples, that can work on their own, and who bring their own skillset and experiences, specially in construction, irrigation, landscaping, stone and wood work.
We offer a caravan as a living space, where volunteers can have a more independent life while enjoying hiking in the surroundings, getting to know the community in Órgiva and spending time in our beautiful farm.
Our property is 2 hectares, irrigated with the traditional system built by the Arabs called acequias.
We have a few chickens, a dog, two cats, a veggie garden, centenary olive trees, orange and lemons, figs, pears, apples, etc.
I'm a photographer and my brother works full time in industrial maintenance.
Help with Eco Projects
DIY and building projects
Help around the house
We will be happy to help you improve or practice your Spanish. We have a good library of books available.
We'd love to teach you our family recipes.
This area is very diverse, with over 80 nationalities living around. A good book to get a deeper understanding of the life of a foreigner here is "Driving over lemons" by Christ Stewart, and is also a fun read.
We are looking for people with some experience in construction, irrigation, landscaping, stone and wood work.
Before the summer we want to set a drip irrigation system, connected to a fish pond and the acequia, as well as creating stone paths and planters. Bring on your inspiration!
Around the house we need help repainting, cleaning and organizing. Someone with an eye for decoration would be fantastic!
Creative minds are welcome too, help painting, upcycling, creating furniture out of scrap wood.
We need general help in the farm and in the house. We are looking for self motivated, active people with an uplifting attitude!
This host offers a language exchange
We love languages! At home we often speak English and French, but we are also happy to help you with your Spanish.
We just bought a caravan to welcome volunteers and friends while offering more privacy and independence. Last year we welcomed people at home, and its a fantastic experience but it also requires a lot of energy from both sides.
So now you would have your own space, with a 130cm wide bed, dry toilet, kitchen and dinning area. It has solar panel. We have lunch together at 1pm (I love cooking!) and you'll receive a weekly budget to do your groceries for breakfast and dinner.
In your time off you can go on hikes, bike rides or take a bus to Granada (1 hour) or the coast of Motril (40min).
Órgiva is only 3km away, and you will find an active community of people offering activities such as yoga, meditation, kirtans, ecstatic dance, etc.
In summer you can just chill and swim in the river or on our pool. There's also climbing spots around, horseback riding centers, windsurf and paddle board.
Limited internet access
We have pets
We are smokers
Can host families
There is no internet on the caravan, but you are welcome to be around the house too.
We have plenty of space for a campervan or motorhome. You would be welcome to use the bathroom in the house.
