PARTY WEEK .... WE ARE LOOKING AT A WEEK IN OCTOBER TO DO A BIG MAKE OVER ON THE PROPERTY. 1 WEEK WITH AS MANY HELPERS AS POSSIBLE TO CLEAN, CLEAN, CLEAN, PAINT, CLEAN, PREPARE AND PARTY WITH US. TRYING TO GET UP TO 14 PEOPLE TOGETHER FOR A WEEK. 5 EUROS STILL APPLIES BUT THE ACCOMODATION, FOOD AND ALCOHOL DURING THE STAY WILL SURPASS THE EXPECTATIONS FOR SURE. WE ARE TAKING NAMES FROM NOW PLEASE GET IN TOUCH !!!!
Ok IT IS LISTED FURTHER DOWN BUT AS IT SEEMS TO SURPRISE THE LAST FEW PEOPLE IT IS 5 EURO PER NIGHT TO STAY AT OUR ACCOMODATION. THE REASON BEING YOU WILL NEVER WORK MORE THAN 4 HOURS IN A DAY AND YOU ARE STAYING IN ACCOMMODATION THAT IS EQUAL TO THE GUESTS !! This is also a proven factor to ensure we have had quality helpers who are serious and not 'holiday makers' ... Sorry !


Our names are Paul and Nuria. This is purely to start sourcing volunteers to join us on a new project. We hope to be able to take volunteers from September but actual dates are yet to be confirmed. The reviews that are listed below relate to our previous property. We are in the process of negotiating the running of a 14 bedroom villa / guest house. The property is in need of a good preparation and small improvements to make it suitable for the guests.
We will be looking for people who can help maintain the property with us and assisting daily cleaning etc. During your stay you will have use of the pool etc and we are a short walk ( 20 minutes) from the beach and bus connections that can take you all along the southern coastal areas.

We are looking for assistance to maintain our gardens and general household maintenance for a maximum of 25 hours work per week. As it is a traditional 'Spanish white house' there is always painting that can be done. Winter duties as such are limited so please be able to entertain yourself when the weather is not brilliant. Feel free to assist with cooking duties as well !! :-)

We offer 2 meals a day, a self service breakfast and lunch on the terrace and a home cooked evening meal for a contribution of 5 euros a day per person - as we like to host enough volunteers to make the daily tasks really easy-going. Included in this is drinks at the dinner table - beer, wine or soft drinks. Feel free to purchase drinks from the supermarkets so you can enjoy a tipple at home during the evenings. In addition we run an honesty bar with a variety of drinks at very modest prices. Your accommodation will be a private room with your own bathroom and small kitchen area where you can prepare extra food if you require.

Welcome to all smokers BUT: NO SMOKING in the house or living areas at all.



There is also WIFI available - however - it will not be as you are used to. It is a satellite connection and expensive to run and has limited data download per month so we POLITELY ask you not to download whilst at the house. There are plenty of bars with free WIFI in the town where you can do this. Our WIFI is more for communication to the outside world to allow you to reassure people you are still in the land of the living !!

if you wish to have a snack during the day then please wash up after yourself! All we ask is that you keep your living and surrounding terrace areas clean. It is out of respect for paying guests. We have a splendid terrace, pool, table tennis table, pool table and summer atmosphere here and bookings are already being made.
Summer months are often spent outdoors and bar-b-q-ing on the terrace. If you would like to be a part of the summer experience you need to book early!! Please contact me if you require pictures or further information. I look forward to hearing from you soon. This is the ideal place if itís your first time away from home (as it will be your home for the duration of your stay) or simply to unwind at the end of your travel experience, mid-way through or to spoil yourself and to recharge your batteries... I hope to see you soon!
The photos are from our house last year and we will update with pictures of the current location shortly.

The pictures show 1 picture taken of the dam at the lakes at El Chorro, our guests taking advantage of the swimming pool in May and 2 of our dogs sunbathing outside the house and some of our guests ready for a night out at a local restaurant.

Payment for your full stay is due upon arrival.

Languages spoken: English, Spanish and a little French.
IMPORTANT: if you volunteer for us, we will send you an information-email that will also include details about how to get here!
