    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You will be self sufficient and won't mind spending time alone. There is lots of work restoring an old mud brick bungalow, learning about earth and lime plaster, tending the garden, looking after the resident dogs (and there will be lots of time to explore the area, walk in the forest or just hang out in the hammocks in the garden).

  • Help
