    *Please contact this host in Spanish

    Hi, my name is Antonio and I live a simple and healthy life in the middle of nature in the Alpujarras, Sierra Nevada. I have a farm with farmhouses and I cultivate a little of everything. Almost every day I receive visits from people from all over the world, I am social, I speak three languages, and I would like to invite volunteers to share the simple life with me and give me a hand with the farm.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I offer good and simple food, with all the greens and seasonal fruit grown on the farm. I also offer a cultural and language exchange. Volunteer travelers can learn how to grow food in a self-sufficient and ecological way, in a natural and privileged environment.

    I need help on the farm, tilling the land and planting and sowing greens and also helping to chop wood. I am interested in doing a language exchange as well, I speak Spanish, German and Portuguese. In short, share the beautiful life.

  • Accommodation


    I offer lodging in a stone farmhouse from which you can see the sea. The little cabin is simple, and there is no bathroom, but if you like nature you will be in paradise. There is good water from the mountain range that comes down from the ditch that is next to it and we heat the water in the fire to wash.

    Ofrezco alojamiento en un cortijo de piedra desde el cual se ve el mar. La cabañita es sencillo, y no hay baño, pero si te gusta la naturaleza vas a estar en el paraíso. Hay buena agua de la sierra que baja de la acequia que está al lado y calentamos el agua en el fuego para lavarse.
