We have a beautiful villa in the heart of the sparkling Cava wine region of the Penedes just outside of the ultra cool city of Barcelona. We have been lovingly restoring this villa as a guest house themed on wine. The start of the summer season is upon us and need to clean, paint and fix to get the property ready for renting. We are looking for creative and artistic volunteers who can share our passion for wine and love of Spanish culture and adventure. We are organising a two week retreat from Wednesday 6th May where volunteers are welcome to stay at our lovely property and come enjoy good food (included), friendship, fun and lifetime memories. Each day the group will participate in preparing and eating together local Catalan cuisine and wine, sitting as a group. For those interested in learning Spanish we are organising Spanish Lessons in the evening. In return all we ask is that the volunteers help in a variety of daily tasks to get the property ready for let. We have tasks to suit all skills. From basic cleaning, gardening, decorating to artistic painting, stencilling, arts and crafts to those with more DIY experience of fitting, fixing and building. All help is welcome but all very relaxed and informal. We plan to all get up and take a continental breakfast with tea and coffee around 8am, have a team meeting, all get busy with our assigned chores with music and laughter to help the day. Plenty of coffee breaks. We will stop at lunchtime to prepare a communal lunch in the summer house where everyone will help prepare and set the table and learn about typical Catalan recipes. We will commence our chores for a couple more hours in the afternoon and call it a day leaving plenty of time to relax, play tennis, swim or chill out. Early evening we will prepare a light dinner, make a fire and enjoy everyone's company, play some games, learn some Spanish or do you own thing.
