  • Description

    Description

    We are ecologists. We own a 30000 m2 property on the Costa Cálida south east of Spain at one km from the sea in the heart of a protected regional park. We are naturists. The property is really calm and idealic. It is a paradise.

    We have wonderful dogs, very playful, a lot of energy and love to give. They are great. They love to have a walk at the mountain or play at the beach.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    With us you can learn how to live with little impact in the environment, respect environment, animals even insects (although we are not so friendly with flies!). Here you will learn how every animal is important, how to reduce your impacts and still be happy (even more). I meditate every day so you may meditate with me if you wish.

    Our place is excellent for watching animals. I can share my little knowledge of it.

    It might not be the best place if you want to learn Spanish though. We usually end up speaking the language in which you are most likely to understand the work. As misunderstandings lead to work done in the wrong way.

  • Help

    Help

    - maintaining the property and garden without using chemicals;
    -cleaning our house.
    - maintenance of our house, which does not require qualifications. But any technical skill is highly appreciated although if you don't have, at least it is essential that you like to learn and do this kind of things.
    - should you have experience with carpentry, electricity or dry stone walls, we would be thrilled! Carpenter, electrician welcome! Should you be musician, please let us know.

    The workawayers will not be involved in the work related to the rental business. All work related to the rental business will be done by us or by professionals.

    Minimum age: 26. Maturity essential.

    Flexibility is essential in terms of tasks and hours. We ask only 15 hours per week, but it may happen that one day we need help during 6 hours and the next 2 days you are totally free.

    Due to negative experience, on departure we will check that the caravan is left in good condition and cleaned.

    FROM APRIL TO OCTOBER: Because we live in a naturist resort, if you are not naturist, you will not have access to the whole property. It is essential that you are at ease in a naturist environment. We want everybody to feel comfortable. Naturism is not only nudism, it is a wider state of mind, with a lot to do with ecology and respect for nature, animals and other people's differences. Thanks for telling us about if you have naturist experience or not when you contact us.

    Accommodation

    A nice remodeled caravan with incredible views on mountains, in an extraordinary landscape. The caravan has 2 beds and a living room. The kitchen is very basic but enough to prepare simple food (a fridge and freezer, a gaz cooker). Toilets inside. Shower outside with hot water ( if cold weather in winter you can shower in our house but we are lucky to have an excellent weather almost all the time). A terrace with fantastic views.

    Should we have guests in the Naturist resort, you do not have access to the swimming pool. In the absence of clients, access is possible but naturist only.

    Wi-Fi is provided during the day but may be shut down from about 11pm to 9am.

    We will not provide food because I have a complicated diet for health reasons but you have your own house and are totally independent. You can buy food at a little store within walking distance. To compensate, we only require 15 hours per week. In case there are several workawayers at the same time you will be asked to share the caravan. Max. 3 persons in very exceptional cases. Usually max. 2 persons. Our place is not adapted to children for security reasons (non secured swimming pool).

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    You will have the possibility to do hiking or mountain bike (bringing his/her own or renting one), go to the beach. A lot of private time. A bus stop is at 800 meters. Please note that we are in a remote place and that you need to take the bus for maybe half an hour to be in Cartagena. You can walk to the beach though. Please don't come with more luggage than what you can carry as we will not provide transportation and you will take public transportation.

    We expect our guests to have high level of higiene and cleanliness and to respect the calm and silence of the place. The house should be left in a perfectly cleaned condition and it is a very important requirement for us.

    Our resort is our job so it is very important that your behavior is adequate: No smokers. No drug use, reasonable use of alcohol. No visits for obvious reasons (Naturist guests).

    If you have read until here, we are very grateful for this!!! Please mention the password "sunset" at the beginning of the contact mail so we know you have read our profile. We will give your mail a special attention ;-)

    We have WiFi but it is rural WiFi which usually is very good but can not be guaranteed at all times as the provider can encounter technical problems due to weather. Also when no clients we turn it off at night. But you can continue with 3G.
