Currently looking for helpers 2020 Autumn/winter,starting September...specifically looking for someone who has construction skills for a few specific tasks but still definitely taking general volunteers, gardeners.

Sorry but we do not have volunteers in the summer months, June, July and August.

We live in a beautiful Rambla, 2.5 miles from the nearest village of Isla Plana and the sea, we have a small holiday guest house adjoining our own house which is rented for approx 3-4 months of the year to holiday makers, usually, ramblers, nature lovers and those just wanting a tranquil holiday, we have a couple of acres of land to the front and side of the property, this is a stunning environment, it feels remote but actually not far from anything, if you love beautiful scenery, walks, beaches and charming villages then you will be at home, we fell in love with this area and the house from day one.
We have a Brick built chalet for helper accommodation, this consists of a separate bathroom with large shower, toilet and basin, a newly fitted kitchen with full size oven, hob, fridge, microwave, toaster etc, the lounge doubles up as the bedroom and can sleep two people, it has twin beds, so available to travelling companions, or come on your own, it is all very comfortable. The chalet has its own garden with outside seating, its own driveway and two bicycles are available for your use.
Internet is available but is a limited satellite system, you can keep up with emails and messages, local bars usually have free wi-fi if you need more.

You are welcome to use the pool in the warmer months,when there are no paying guests and within reaosonable hours.

We have many projects we need help with such as, general work around the house and grounds, gardening, painting,the odd small building project,wood chopping, replacing the roof,building a BBQ,fitting a new bathroom, we hope to start growing vegetables,if you have an interest in organic farming then we are eager to learn, we would love someone with a knowledge of drystone walling, building skills,also a few carpentry skills would be great, but certainly not a must.

You need to be happy to sometimes work without supervision, open to whatever tasks needs doing.

We are kind, friendly, sociable, fair and respectful people, we do expect the same in return. We won't work you into the ground but expect an honest 4 hours work.
We would like 4 hours per day each person, 6 days a week, flexible hours, no fixed times but generally Sundays off, we will supply groceries for your breakfast and we will cook an evening meal on the 6 working days, you will be responsible for supplying your own lunch, or alternatively you can work 3 hours per day,5 days per week and be responsible for supplying and cookng all your own food,(I still supply breakfast groceries for the five working days), the chalet is fully equipped and self contained.
There is a fab supermarket in Isla Plana, we are happy to take you there. To be honest, we are flexible where everything is concerned, we want ourselves and helpers to be happy.

If you are a couple then i would prefer if you supplied and cooked for yourselves,everything is negotiable.

Please ensure you have an EHIC and your own travelling insurance.


Please only apply if your over 28 years of age.
Minimum 2 week stay prefered.

We can pick you up from Murcia International airport or Cartagena bus station, please just cover our fuel costs, €5

We have paying guests who we value deeply, therefore we do reserve the right to ask you to leave if you are causing a problem with us or our guests.

Please don't come broke! You will still need money, also workwear and shoes.

You will find us on Tripadvisor in Isla plana, Murcia,
Peace and tranquility,
Casa Penas Blancas.

We love meeting new people with different and shared interests.
Please contact for more info.
