  • Description


    We have recently moved into a 10 ha property which slopes down to a river. It is beautiful land with lots of potential but has been neglected for 20 years. The project for our retirement is to develop the land using the principles of permaculture sustainably to plant woodland and hedgerows, develop wildflower meadows and also create good quality grassland for our horses and an organic orchard and vegetable garden aiming for self-sufficiency in seasonal produce. We have expert help from our property manager who is a trained forester and lives onsite. We hope our grandchildren in 20 years will see the benefits of what we are doing now.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    Travellers will learn a lot about permaculture and re-wilding from experts. You will work with local people on projects and communicate in Spanish and/or English with others who work on the same or different projects on the property. Although we are in the countryside, it is only a 10 minute walk into the local village where strangers are made welcome in the local bars and cafes.

  • Aide


    We are looking for enthusiastic and energetic volunteers, ideally a couple, to help clearing land for fencing, building swales and berms and using our natural produce such as wood and compost for land enrichment and water management. You will be working with qualified and experienced foresters to develop and re-wild our land.
    We have started an organic orchard and vegetable garden and would like help with planting, weeding and harvesting.
    We also have 3 horses - if you enjoy animals, you can help with their care and if you enjoy riding, you can take them out on rides. They are very friendly and easy and can be ridden by people with very little horse-riding experience.

    With your time off you can walk along the river into the nearest town and visit the Roman ruins and Moorish castle and visit the local bars and restaurants of this pretty, old pueblo blanco. There are lots of hiking and horse-riding trails through the national park and many cyclists on our local roads. There is also a train station within walking distance and a local bus service.
