    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are living in a small traditional village from Andalusia, in the Alpujarra. The Alpujarra is a large mountain area some thirty miles south from Granada city and only 25 miles from the coast.
    It is well known for the beauty and peacefulness of its white towns; its mountain landscapes, the house balconies full of flowers; its friendly people and the atmosphere they create and the spectacular backcloth of the Sierra Nevada. Antonio works in a traditional way with animals and culture and is one of last ones shepherd to possess free cows on the sierra Nevada.

  • Accommodation


    We have a small house to accommodate the volunteers right next to the farm, it is equipped with solar, kitchen/lounge/bathroom and 4 bedrooms, one is just for the helpers. We are not living there, but we come everydays, so you have your own space. We have a lot of vegetable from our garden and fresh eggs, and we buy foods for our workawayers. Antonio's mother is a professional cook.
    This place is about 3km from the village Picena, which has a bar and a small convenience store.
