  • Description

    Description

    We are a young Argentine couple, Anto (33) and Gonza (32) with a 4-month-old baby (Tomas) living in a rural house in San Vicente del Raspeig. The farm is 3 hectares, with olive, almond and vegetable trees, bordered by the mountains in the area.
    We want to share the farm with a couple of volunteers who can help us with the housework, the farm and with the baby in some moments. We have some animals and pets: goats, ducks, pigs and two dogs; We also want to rebuild our organic garden to consume our own food. There is a lot of work going on throughout the year and we hope volunteers will adjust to our crazy and chaotic rhythms, taking responsibility for masonry, painting, and general maintenance tasks.
    The place is very nice and quiet.
    The volunteers will stay in a house separate from ours, in a single room with a double bed, ideal for couples, with a private toilet. The room is fully equipped and ready to be used, but not the bathroom that has yet to finish the shower and the kitchen / living room which is half as well. It is part of the project to be able to finish the guest house. At the moment the shower is shared with the hosts and the kitchen area.

    The house is supplied with 100% solar energy, and has all the services to make your stay very comfortable, including Wi-Fi.


    Somos una pareja de jóvenes argentinos, Anto (33) y Gonza (32) con un bebé de 4 meses (Tomas) viviendo en una casa rural en San Vicente del Raspeig. La finca es de 3 hectáreas, con olivos, almendros y hortalizas, limitadas por las montañas de la zona.
    Queremos compartir la finca con una pareja de voluntarios que nos puedan ayudar con las tareas de la casa, de la granja y con el bebé en algunos momentos. Tenemos algunos animales y mascotas: cabras, patos, cerdos y dos perros; tambien queremos rehacer nuestra huerta orgánica para consumir nuestros propios alimentos. Hay mucho trabajo durante todo el año y esperamos que los voluntarios se adapten a nuestros ritmos locos y caóticos, asumiendo la responsabilidad de tareas de albañilería, pintura, y mantenimiento en general.
    El lugar es muy bonito y tranquilo.
    Los voluntarios se alojarán en una casa separada de la nuestra, en una habitación individual con cama matrimonial ideal para parejas, con toilet privado. La habitación está totalmente equipada y lista para ser utilizada, no así el baño que aún tiene pendiente de terminarse la ducha y la cocina/salon la cual está a medias tambien. Es parte del proyecto poder finalizar la casa de huespedes. De momento se comparte la ducha con los anfitriones y la zona de cocina.

    La casa se abastece 100 % de energía solar, y dispone de todos los servicios para que tu estancia sea muy confortable, incluido wifi.
