We are a running a rural holiday retreat for families, groups and courses.
We have an original Moorish hamlet by a lake in the foothills of the sierra tejada mountains between Malaga and Granada and 15km to the coast at Torre del Mar. Nearest village is 10 minutes walk.

We have space for volunteers during 2020.

We are looking for enthusiastic people with mindful attitude.
We are sociable but not partying!

Experience in catering/waiting/bar work would be an advantage [when courses are being held].
Someone who can sew [We have some simple cushions/covers/curtains for make/repair]

Detail below is the schedule of weeks, which are normally Saturday>Saturday. We would expect you to arrive a few days early to acclimatize yourself prior to course arrival. We normally require minimum 3 weeks stay. And, if it works, you can stay for as long as you want!

2020: April: General Work [painting, gardening, cleaning, maintenance].
June > July: Songwriters Course week, Meditation week, Yoga weeks, [kitchen, waiting, cleaning, gardening].
July > September: Family Holidays: [cleaning, gardening, washing, waitering].
September > November: Songwriters Course week, Wedding week, Meditation week, Yoga week, [kitchen, waiting, cleaning, gardening]
November on: General Work [painting, gardening, cleaning, maintenance]
NB : weddings and professional songwriting workshops, hard work, but great fun and you can attend the creative performances! meet some very interesting people!

We will provide for your own private room in the staff house with kitchen facilities. you will be expected to keep your accommodation [+ garden] clean and tidy at all times. We will provide: Breakfast and large lunch [our main meal]. NB when we are providing course food you will also receive dinner. We will normally cook, but if you enjoy cooking we would be happy for you to prepare some meals. Sunday is rest day so we normally do not cook. We will expect min 25 hours work a week. When we have a course group here you will be expected to work more hours but less hours the following week. We would like you to help in all general aspects: preparing houses, food preparation/waiting, gardening, and if you have any work specialties those as well! We are flexible in respect working schedules, so for example, if you want to work your hours together, then have a break for a few days to go away, that would be ok, but not when there's weddings and courses. We can discuss.

If you are interested please let us know your dates and we can arrange a skype/whatsapp
video meeting to discuss.
best wishes
