  • Description


    PLEASE READ FULL PROFILE B E F O R E APPLYING !!! vegetarian / vegan !!! Only for people minimum 25 years old

    Hi, my name is Emmeli. I am German and retired (65) I live in Spain about 20 years. The finca is located about 2 km from the sea. The next town is Almayate (5 km) and Torre del Mar (10 km). I live a natural ethical lifestyle. I am vegetarian for 30 years, vegan about 8 years.
    In more than 20 years of building up we have created an extraordinary pleasant ambience, where  we would like to invite you to feel reconnected to nature and touched inside.

    To fit in you should have the following qualities:
    Concious, respectful, reliable, tidy and clean, inner and outer balance, able and willing to help and to learn and to listen.

    Clear and open communication in a respectful way

    You should have some good knowledge of either
    - gardening and working on a farm
    - building, carpentry, bricklaying, general maintenance
    - giving massages or physical treatments
    You should have had your own household or at least have worked in a household to be able to prepare your own meals and keep your living and workingspace clean during your whole stay.

    As I have physical problems I cannot work always together with you so you should be able to work in a selfresponsible way after getting all necessary instructions from me.

    The minimum stay is 3 weeks. There is a trial period of about 1 week, after which we both can decide to go on or not. Long term working guests also welcome.

    The mango season (September/October) is the most important and wonderful time in the year. Especially raw eaters and people who love ripe and tasty fruits are welcome to help.

    Caring and sharing is important because there may be more than 1 working guest at a time.
    You get Avocados and Mangos when ripe and I provide the vegan grocery and vegetables (not ecological) for your lunch on working days. The rest of the vegetarian food you need is your supply and preparation. We have an reverse osmosis drinking water system.

    Smoking and high percentage alcohol are not allowed. Please no Reiki and energy healing.

    Please bring only ecological soap, shampoo etc. Although living in the nature you should have a cultivated appearance.

    The finca is a quiet and spiritual place. You should be able to accept this.

    Please o n l y apply for a stay if you really fit in the requirements of my profile. Please let me know your work experience, which is applicable to my needs. To be a quick learner is not enough. To be sure that you read my profile correctly and entirely pls. indicate your sign of the zodiac and ascendent. Only then you can get a positive reply.

    We also have a platform for mobile homes on the highest point of the finca with a wonderful view over the coast and the sea.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You can learn to respect Nature and be grateful for the gifts we get in form of wonderful fruits. Helping in the nature means listening to the quietness and the sound of silence and interaction of your own nature and the nature of the trees. You will look at the fruits in a different way than before. I also give Mandala painting workshops and can give you some info about vegetarian/vegan, lektinfree and ethical lifestyle.
