    Couple Greg & Ellie now into our second year with the orchard and farm house in the heart of the Valencia region. Our finca has been recently renovated and we now at the end stages of decorating the whole house.
    There are lots of interesting jobs outside in the campo along with plenty of projects. We also appreciate help with the Spanish language if possible

    We are only 2 km from the nearest railway station. Valencia is 40 minutes and very easy via train. It's a short drive to the mountain area with some testing walks and great views. There and plenty of beaches within a 30 minute drive and many places of interest nearby. We have a couple of bikes you can use anytime and it's very quick to get into the local town for shops and bars etc.

    When hosting we normally have at least two workawayers and we ask for a maximum of 25 hours per week in exchange for food, drink and the accommodation with pool

    A typical workday would start an hour or so after sun-up. We all work until lunch with a break midway. Ellie usually does the lunch for everyone. After that the rest of the afternoon and evening is yours, just as weekends.
    You have your own kitchen, but we do like to have some shared evening meals also

    The work outside can be weeding, pruning, mulching, picking fruit and various landscaping projects. Inside there are some repair jobs, decorating, furnishing, cleaning, painting etc for when the weather makes it difficult to be outside.
    It is important for us that you enjoy your stay, so we are flexible with the type of work you prefer.

    Workawayers do not need any specific skills but must be fit, healthy and willing to learn new things. We do expect good hygiene and tidiness and rest assured that all work must be safe with protective equipment as necessary. We like people who are relaxed and have an open-minded attitude.

    Only one rule is no smoking at the finca! This is a healthy place with lots of fruit, veg, nut and olives (oh and lots of meat too!!)
