We are looking for an individual volunteer or couple to live and work with us on our eco hostel. I am English and my wife is Colombian and we have two kids 11and 13years old, two cats, two dogs and a few chickens. As a family and a business are a very relaxed and friendly but also industrious and hard-working. The hostel is located between San Gil and Barichara and has spectacular views, a natural swimming pool, dry toilets and solar showers.
In exchange for 4 hours work, we offer breakfast plus accommodation in a comfortable gypsy wagon with amazing views. We don't have a shared kitchen, but we have an excellent vegetarian restaurant. Volunteers can buy lunch or dinner with a big discount.
The work is mostly farm or garden work and odd jobs, with some construction, woodwork, computer or artistic stuff.
We expect all our volunteers to have a proper working attitude as you would in any other job. We welcome all volunteers into our family and we treat them very fairly and respectfully, and in exchange we expect them to do what we ask of them in the best way they can.
