  • Description


    Namaste everyone - thank you for reading us! First of all, please DO understand:
    If you are looking for comfortable private rooms and food served ready on the table, PLEASE move on, plenty of projects offer just that!

    Ours is a rough place of great natural beauty. Our commitment is to offer you with all beings who live here the opportunity to simply be your Self. Rather than imposing established rhythms, schedules or chores onto you, you will be invited to find out WHO YOU REALLY WANT TO BE, and from there, what you want to do at and for this place. Rather than being "looked after", the finca invites us to tackle our most basic fears - all fear comes from need - teaching us to "do without", a challenge that can be fulfilling and liberating at the same time.
    On the finca we get the chance to take full responsibility for our stay, in fact, take back the responsibility for our own lives, thus getting deeply involved in changing the world, BEING THE CHANGE, starting from the inside, our own innermost Self.
    Starting to learn skills that we need for living in nature as sustainable, unique, individual beings infinitely different from each other, yet forming a sustainable community of all living creatures on earth.
    Stepping out from a system that destroys itself and the future of our children and grandchildren. That keeps people passive and hypnotized in their comfortable entertained lives, afraid of being responsible, self reliant, spontaneous, expressive, alive.
    Stepping out in this way can be seen as a silent and peaceful revolution.

    Also, please be totally true and straightforward when you apply. Be aware that in this simple, natural place all tricks and strategies you might use to succeed in life will eventually collaps, while openly communicated "weaknesses" or doubts might well fit in with who we are... In other words: Don't strive to appear "perfect" - just express your Self with sincerity.

    The farm has 6.5ha, half forest of wild olive and mastix trees, half pasture for our horses and ponies. There are the ruins of the old cottages of natural stones, forming our "open air temple", an old ex-vegetable garden that hasn't been worked for fifty years for lack of water- around 5000 sqm, surrounded by natural stone walls - ideal to pitch your tent - and a terrace of a few fruit trees (fig, orange and pomme granate).

    The farm lies between the virgin beach of Bolonia and the surfer's 'capital' Tarifa.

    The main purpose of the farm and house is to home the animals who roam in it freely, most of them being rescues. Apart from the pasture animals there are cats, dogs, and sometimes rescue turtles. The last llama boy took his leave - old age - last summer, so, there are no more llamas... :-(

    La granja es de 6.5 hectáreas, mitad pasto (ponis, caballos y una llama), mitad bosque de acebuche y lentisco. Hay una cuadra antigua habitable, ruinas del anterior cortijo de piedras naturales,
    que forman nuestro 'templo' para encuentros, compartir comidas y meditaciónes, una huerta no labrada por falta de agua hace 50 años de unos 5000m2, amurallada de muros de piedras naturales, ideal para poner tienda de campaña, y un bancal de unos pocos arboles frutales (higuera,membrillo,naranja,granada).
    Está a 8km de la playa virgen de Bolonia y a 16km de la capital de surf, Tarifa.

    El propósito principal de la finca es dar hogar a los animales que circulan libremente en ella, la mayoría de ellos siendo de rescate. Aparte de los animales de pasto que son caballos y ponis - nuestra última llama falleció de viejo el verano pasado :-( - hay gatos, perros y a veces tortugas rescatadas.

    The cattle breeders and farmers in the neighbourhood still work in traditional ways. The finca is totally integrated in local life. Local religious and rural customs are part of our life. History and presence can be experienced in interesting excursions.

    We ask for 14 hours/week of work, with up to 5 days off. The volunteers pay for their own food and cook for themselves. This gives us time to teach, go on excursions, meditate, make art, or just relax on the beach... Please bring at least a month's time. Of course you are always free to leave if you don't feel comfortable and vice versa. But please only apply if you have at least a month of time at your disposal. Help is needed with the maintenance of the house, painting, varnishing, trimming trees, making firewood, rebuilding natural stone walls 'dry' etc. At this time we are looking for people with some experience in construction, carpentry, masonry, machines, etc. We need mechanics who understand old Landrover engines, knowledge of repairing machines (chainsaw, brushcutter, generator, etc ;-) In exchange for professional help, we offer free horse dressage classes, Spanish and/or English and/or German classes, of taiji quan (30 years of experience) and visits to the magnificent beaches and landscapes of the coastline of the Strait of Gibraltar.

    Pedimos 14h/semana de trabajo, con hasta 5 días libres. L@s voluntari@s pagan su propia comida y cocinan para ell@s mism@s. Esto nos da tiempo para dar clases, hacer excursiones, meditar, hacer arte, o simplemente relajarnos en la playa...
    Por favor trae como mínimo de tiempo un mes . Desde luego estás siempre libre de marcharte si no te encuentras a gusto y vice versa. Pero por favor sólo solicites si tienes por lo menos un mes de tiempo a tu disposición.

    Hace falta ayuda con el mantenimiento de la casa, pintar, barnizar, podar árboles, hacer leña, reconstruir muros de piedra natural `en seco´ etc.

    En este momento buscamos gente con alguna experiencia de construccion, carpinteria, albanileria, máquinas etc.

    Necesitamos mecánicos que entiendan de motores de Landroveres antiguos, conocimientos de reparar máquinas (motosierra, debrozadora, generador etc ;-)

    En cambio a ayuda profesional ofrecemos clases de doma libre de caballo, clases de castellano y/o inglés y/o alemán, clases de taiji quan (30 años de experiencia) y visitas a las magníficas playas y paisajes del litoral del estrecho de Gibraltar.

  • Hébergement


    The accommodation for volunteer groups - three to five people - or for paying guests - to stay for a month - is our wooden cabin with bunk beds dormitory style.

    Individual volunteers or couples that intend to stay longer terms, there's the
    "ermita", a reformed 200 year old natural stone stable.

    Both places are equipped with basic electricity for two light bulbs and a USB charger for smartphones and tablets and great cast iron wood burning stoves.

    There is no bathroom, no plumbing. an open air outdoor compost toilet, in the cabin a two flame, the ermita a four flame gas cooker with baking oven where the volunteers prepare their own food that they can buy cheaply at the local markets & supermarkets.

    For this rough life style it is necessary for you to bring your own sleeping bag,towel,a flashlight and your own toiletries such as soap,shampoo,sun screen, insect repellent etc.

    You also need to bring washing up liquid, toilet paper, kitchen roll etc

    Only bring as much luggage as you can carry yourself over a 2km dirt road.

    For rainy,muddy weather you'll need a pair of wellingtons as well as water proof clothes. in general, the more independent and self sufficient you are, the better.

    Grupos de tres a cinco voluntari@s o clientes vacacionales comparten una cabaña de madera estilo dormitorio, con electricidad básica, sin agua corriente. Hay una estufa de leña para calentar agua, y un water ecológico al exterior. Hay una cocina de butano de dos fuegos donde l@s voluntari@s preparan su propia comida que pueden comprar en los mercados y supermercados y las granjas alrededor.

    Un@ a dos voluntari@/s con planes de quedarse más de un mes está "la ermita", una cuadra de animales de 200 años de piedra natural, tb con electricidad básica y sin cuarto de baño.

    Para vivir en estos espacios "salvajes" :-) hace falta que traigas tu saco de dormir, una linterna, y tus propias cosas de aseo, toalla, champú, jabón, protección solar, repelente de insectos, jabon liquido lavavajillas, papel higiénico etc.

    Solo trae la cantidad de equipaje que puedes llevar 2km en un camino de tierra.

    En general, cuanto más independiente y autosuficiente estes, mejor. En tiempos de lluvia y barro hace falta un par de botas de agua como ropa de agua.

    La finca tiene excelente cobertura con vodafon, los que traen smartphone o su propio pc pueden conectarse a internet.

  • Autres infos...

    Autres infos...

    Please inform us WITHOUT FAIL about any special dietary needs, injuries or other special health conditions such as allergies etc, so that we can see whether they are compatible with the rough life on the finca or not. please be aware it doesn't serve anybody if you make your way out here just to realize that finca life isn't compatible with your needs.

    Please also be aware that the finca is 16km away from the next health centre and that we are not prepared to attend you if you are sick and in need of medical care. you alone will be responsible for your own health, and in case of falling ill you will be attended in a hospital. therefore a proper health insurance is a MUST.

    Neither smoking nor any other drugs are allowed on the finca.

    The finca has excellent vodafone, movistar, orange, yoigo etc. reception, so if you bring your smartphone or your own pc you can connect yourself to the internet. there is no wifi.

    The finca also offers the opportunity to pioneers to stay long-term to lifelong and create their independent projects, such as art projects (plenty of space for open air workshops, studios etc), small businesses (for example activities with children, a small ecological backpacker campsite etc)or just for retirement and recreation (if you're income independent.)
    Please note that while there is enough water to cover people's and animals' needs, there isn't enough to grow veggies beyond the ones for your own need.

    Por favor informanos SIN FALTA de cualquier necesidad especial de dieta o condiciones de salúd, como alérgias, heridas de deporte etc, para que las podamos tener en cuenta e informarte si son compatibles con el estilo de vida en la finca o no. Ten en cuenta que no sirve a nadie si haces el viaje en vano sólo para ver que tu condición no te permite estar en la finca como voluntario.

    También ten en cuenta que la finca está a 16km del próximo centro de salud, y que no está preparada para atender a personas enfermas con necesidad de cuidados médicos. Serás tú el/la responsable de tu propia salud, y en caso de enfermedad se te atenderá profesionalmente y a tu cuenta en un hospital, por lo cual es imprescindible un seguro en condiciones.

    Fumar como el consumo de cualquier clase de drogas está prohibido en toda la finca.

    La finca también ofrece la oportunidad a pioneros de estancias largas hasta a por vida, creando sus proyectos independientes, tal como proyectos de arte (hay mucho espacio para talleres al aire libre, un estudio etc), pequeños negocios (como crear un campismo rural ecológico, proporcionar vacaciones de aventura para niños etc.) o simplemente estar aquí de retiro y recreación (si estás independiente económicamente.)

    Mientras hay agua suficiente para las necesidades de gente y animales, no la hay para cultivar hortalizas más allá de las que necesitas para tu propio consumo.

    People who bring their own mobile data have an excellent signal from almost all phone companies and can charge their cell phones and tablets with the solar battery. If you intend to stay long term, you can also contract a router with infinite data for a very attractive price.

    Any size. The dirt road is tricky, so there's either the option to park at a safe place 2km from the finca, or bring it in to install on the finca longer termish and give the road a good repair.
