    We have paying guests coming usually on the weekends as well as cleaning staff and a cook to cater for these. During the week its quieter and painting jobs or gardening is done.

    there is a nice lake to swim, and horses available to ride on your time off if u have experience

    Help

    We need general help around the place. That could be gardening, cleaning leaves off the pool. Painting some walls. Helping around in the vegetable patch or the orchard.
    Or any other project happening at the moment.
    As for working with tourists it not really needed unless you like it or would like to have the experience. Jobs to be done with them would be to take them for a ride on the horses or on the 4x4 jeep mainly. Because we have staff for cleaning and cooking.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    The place is very quiet, and is perfect for relaxing on free time. Like going for walks. Riding the horses (if you are confortable with that).
    swimming in the lake, or riding the kayaks.
    Doing some art, dancing, whatever you feel like doing is welcome here.
    The main thing to know is that its far from town and there is no much socializing other than with the people who are at the place at any given moment. Could be many or only one.
    I (jaime) live here, and love spendoing time on my own. I travell to buenos aires once a month to get my dose of socializing , but then im very happy to be back here!
    Im building a home nearby, and anybody is welcome to give me a hand over there aswell. I have a orchard and a vegetable patch and a starting a nice permaculture garden.
