  • Description



    I am Andres,
    I am building my beekeeping project that is based on the care and welfare of bees, so that all that history, good energy and love is transferred to the brand and its products.

    I need help with the details,
    I need the place to be magical and beautiful,
    Mainly helping me with carpentry, painting, drawing and working in the garden.

    In parallel I am working on 3 products (a food, a beauty product and a health product)
    and a space to do classes and therapies related to bees,
    in case you want to give me your opinion or help me with that too.

    I am open to listen to all opinions,
    I like to know what my project transmits to other people.

    See you !!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I will teach you everything I can about beekeeping, carpentry and my experience living in this place.

    I will give you some recommendations of places to visit and I will take you to some that we will surely have to go shopping or do some paperwork.

    We will practice Spanish and English, we will eat typical dishes (mainly vegeterian) and you can enjoy the beach, forests and activities near the place where we live

  • Help


    The idea is that we work together improving the image and functionality of the apiary, using the available materials first and then buying and using what we need.

    I have a workshop to work indoors on rainy days, and we can work in the garden on sunny days.

    I don't have an established schedule, I just hope you can help me for a few hours during the day and also have time to rest and tour the places around.

    My project is aimed at a conscious and sensitive public, so I think that the detail and feminine touch can contribute a lot in this.

  • Accommodation


    I offer very good accommodation

    Depending on availability, you can stay in the cabin we rent by airbnb, or
    In case the cabin is leased and you still want to be part of this and help me, I can offer you accommodation in the apiary room (bed, heating and television) and you can use the bathroom and kitchen of the house.

    If you have no problem with sleeping in the apiary room, you can stay as long as you want.

    I recommend you see the photos of the cabin and the apiary
