About us and Ayala:
When my dad (Theo) was 20y het bought his first finca in spain.
Later in '84 he fell in love with Ayala.
He created a lovely way of living close to the nature.
I (Nathan) joined my dad in september 2017, after I grow up in Belgium. So as a city boy I can say I love my new lifestyle.
The land have a 1134m mountain top, large vegetable gardens,sources,lot of animals, pine forest, rock climbing possibility,
4x4 parkour, spectacular views and the nearest village at 3km.
Take care for the animals (horses, dogs, cats, chickens, rabbits, sheeps and pigs)
Constructief and renovating (holiday) buildings
Construction natural cabins
Maintenance in the large vegetable gardens
Lot of land cleaning like (re)build/ fences, cutting firewood, etc
Aerial heights course / adventure playground
organizing camps (whether or not in cooperation with the already existing camp called ecoventure *who are great people*)
start up constructions like tipi/bamboe/kerterre
About the volunteer work:
We're looking for people that would like to get involved with our ideas for projects.
Or with willing and able people we can start something.
We are specially interested in people who love natural habitats, taking initiatif, are not afraid to work hard some days and would like to stay for a long time.
we love to be as independent as possible, but of course we drive to the nearby villages from time to time.
Most of these time we all cook and eat togheter (out the garden).
We 'work' almost every day, actually we never user the term work! It more something you do with your heart.
This is also the reason we never count in hours. We more love the feeling of any result from a day/week.
We expect you to help 6/7, but if you want to take free days, we are flexibele.
Most time we make a deal on free days you handle your food/meal for that day.
There are several houses, a big workshop, horses stable, ...
You probably stay in (how we call it) 'the appartements'. They has to be shared with the people who are here at the moment andere me (Nathan).
On this moment we've a plumbing problem in the appartements BUT we can share the badroom in 'the main building'.
There is also a lot of space to camp with a tent, car, mobil home.
We don't have WIFI yet, but if is necessary you have access to internet.

We have a car, but we can't promise we'll available to come and get you up at the airport.. But there are a lot of possibilities to get here.
From Malaga and Sevilla there is a good bus connection to Ronda & Estepona.
And in the village Cortés de la Frontera el station is a TRAIN station (what you can easily reach on foot) and here you can go to Ronda.
So I'm sure there is always a solution :)
1) YES-> there is a pool available (let say a pool is welcome here)
2) if it looks this is not your Place to be or you just don't like it here (what we can understand).. You are free to leave.
it is a better solution than transfer your negative vibs to the group that enjoyed a good time here.
