  • Descrição


    We can use help from the last week of July.

    In our place we try to live as natural and self-sufficiently as possible. We are an eco-finca for nature lovers and tranquility seekers. Guests can accompany us in our daily and special activities, and learn about a basic living by doing so. It is a beautiful place. It's just that our mini natural paradise still needs quite some fine-tuning. That's where you come in.

    Who are we looking for?

    The helper (in exceptional occasions two) we are looking for likes to live a basic life, and enjoys being outside. Enjoyed nature as a child already? Then you will find our place wonderful. There is some clothing for you but not in all sizes, so please bring your own working clothes, shoes and rainwear. We ask you to help us 25 hours a week.

    We have helpers since 2010. In 2024 we really need someone who can take simple tasks out of our hands. Taking care of the chicken, helping with some pruning, clearing a field. Thus giving us time to do the more special jobs. In which you are welcome to help us, if you think they are suitable to you. A carpenter in particular would be very useful.

    How long?

    We understand perfectly well that you want to travel, but we ask you to commit yourself for at least three to four weeks to our project. This gives us time to invest in you.

    We love to share our knowledge and experiences, if needed with a beer or a (home made) cider next to the camp fire. We know a lot about living a live as self-sustaining as possible, but we can also brush up your knowledge about art, mushrooms, philosophy or the pruning of your apple tree. We like to go on an excursion with you, if time allows that.

    What are you getting into?

    Though Infiesto with all basic facilities is only 4 or 5 beautiful hiking kilometres away, a stay at our finca is quite isolated. There are no next-door neighbours. Here it's usually only us and our very modest livestock (1 dog, 2 cats, 4 sheep, 6 chickens, 1 rooster).

    We stay in an old wagon. You have your own place in our old camper van (hot water bottles and warming cats available). Internet is limited here. Checking your e-mail on our laptop is no problem. For other purposes there is free broadband internet in the Telecentro in Infiesto. The good news is that we have warm water in the panoramic shower.

    Who we are?

    We are Thomas and Astrid. A middle aged Dutch couple that settled for this independent lifestyle in 2007. We enjoy meeting new people and learning things from them in a companiable atmosphere. We usually eat vegetarian, do not smoke, do like a beer, wine or cider, but don't do other drugs. We don't expect you to have the same habits.

    To conclude

    Please tell us in your e-mail about your motivation for wanting to come to our place, and in which month you are available.
