  • Description


    I am ecologist, naturist and zen budist. I live in 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. The property is really calm and idealic. It is a paradise.

    I 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.

    I danse salsa (cuban and Porto-Rico) bachata, kizomba and a few more. I have been dancing for more than 15 years.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    We are using the workaway system because we would like people to get to learn how to live with little impact on 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. As misunderstandings lead to things done in the wrong way. I would love to learn portuguese though.

    Cultural sharing is important, for both sides as we also learn from our workawayers. Should you just be interested in cheap holidays, this is not the place for you. It takes time to share knowledge, this is why short stays don't make sense.

    We are also interested in long stays, especially if you are naturist or budist, or ideally both!!! The idea would be to create a little zen sangha here, as there is no zen community in the area. For very long stays of this type, and under strict conditions, accomodation in a house could be provided.

    Mainly sharing all our daily tasks:
    - gardening with us, learning about local species, invading species, how to best respect and preserve the surrounding nature; (we don't have a vegetable garden anymore, for lack of success!!!, so you will not learn a lot from us on this)
    - learning the use of our compost;
    - participate in the maintainance of dry walls (as local cultural heritage). If the situation arise that we are doing this during your stay, you can participate. Should you have experience in this, please mention it when you contact us)
    - sharing the house cores (cleaning).
    - sharing the maintenance of the house (which does not require qualifications, although if you have we will be very happy).
    - we sometimes participate in ecological actions organized by local environmental associations (removing plastics from beaches, reforestation project). If your stay coincides with one of this project, you will be invited to join in.
    - Your stay might also coincides with some solidarity actions towards animal rescuing. We are not in association but we are sometimes involved in such unpredictible situations.
    - you will be asked to recycle your trash. If you think climate change is a myth, it is preferable for both parts that you look for another place to stay.

    Minimum age: 26. Maturity essential.
    Minimum stay of 2 weeks.

    Coming with painted long nails or with huge luggage does not make sense here and will mostly be a burden for you. Life here is simple and authentic and any superficial person will not feel comfortable and be better at ease somewhere else. If you have a great sense of humour, do come here!

    Also if you are a strong head, get irritated when being told what to do, especially by a woman, don't even contact us.

    By confirming your participation you commit yourself in coming and staying the length of time that was arranged. It is a question of mutual respect. If you are likely to change your mind, please don't even contact us.

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

    Although not being part of the work, we appreciate and expect at least some participation is the daily life (join at least some time the daily meditation walk with the dogs in the mountain for example).

    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 environment, 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.

    A nice remodeled caravan with incredible views on mountains, in an extraordinary landscape. The caravan has 2 beds (plus one sofa bed) and a living room. The kitchen is very basic but enough to prepare simple food (a fridge and freezer, a gaz cooker). Real toilets inside. Shower outside with hot water (we are lucky to have an excellent weather almost all the time). A terrace with fantastic views.

    The pool is only accessible to naturists and its access can sometimes be limited.

    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 (swimming pool).

    Autres infos...

    You will have the possibility to do hiking (bring good shoes, the paths are so beautiful) or mountain bike (bringing your own), go to the beach. A lot of private time. A bus stop is at 800 meters. There is a dirt road to our place. 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. Suit cases with wheels will not roll much on the dirt road. But if you can carry it in your arms for 300 meters, then it is fine.

    Nearest airports : Murcia or Alicante. Both have bus connections to go to cartagena. Murcia is slightly closer.

    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. If your family or friends have already let you know you that you leave places dirty, maybe you should reconsider your stay here.

    Adequate behavior is required: smoking in designated places. Reasonable use of alcohol. No visits for obvious reasons (naturist environment).

    LGBT+ friendly.

    If you have read until here, we are impressed and 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 ;-)
