  • Description


    Hello Workawayers! My grandparents (Marta and Ernesto) and I (Monica) are looking for people that can help us with the renovation/restoration and maintenance of our beautiful organic finca, as they are older and has become more difficult to keep it up. But more importantly, volunteers that are open to experiencing Spanish culture in a more local, genuine way.

    Our rustic finca consists of a property of 9 acres and is situated 500 meters from a colorful quaint small town called Villanueva de a Vera within the province of Caceres. This is the town the Emperor Carlos V chose to retire at. It is also 90 minutes away by bus from Madrid, and 10 km away from Candeleda, Avila (beautiful emblematic city).
    In exchange for your help we would offer: the room where you would stay with your own bathroom, great food (not only authentic Spanish food but Cuban and Mexican authentic food as well. Yes, we are foodies) mostly from the organic produce of our farm, beer or wine, internet access, time to time fiestas de pueblo, nature walks, freshwater swimming and diving in las Gargantas de Cuartos, books and films (especially old classics), language practice, laughs and good conversation.

    Looking forward to meeting you and hope you enjoy your time with us!
    If you have any questions please do not hesitate in contacting us through workaway email :)

  • Help


    Our volunteers would be expected to help 3 to 5 hours everyday (depending of the task focus of the day) generally in the morning right after breakfast around 8:00 am and would have the rest of the day free as well as the weekends. We are looking for energetic, driven volunteers to help us with gardening (above all), cleaning, collecting fresh water, fruit, and vegetables, maybe even a little building? (If you aren't sure if you are equipped for any of these tasks, no worries! we are happy to teach you and show you the way)
