Casa De Los Cuadros

Off the beaten track, the village is set high up in the mountains of a beautiful protected natural park. Fantastic for walking, cycling, photography. If you are interested in real Spanish culture and living like a local then this is for you. Otherwise, you will be more suited to somewhere busier and may find it too quiet. It is not isolated and has a few bars and restaurants in the village, with more to explore in the nearby towns. But it is quiet, rural and relaxing. If you want lots of people and bars, shops, special dietary foods in the village, then this won't be suitable. But you can get to famous Ronda in 45 minutes by bus and if we are not completely full with guests, happy to take you on a trip to Cadiz. Any excuse to go! Just over an hour to the coast of Cadiz by car. Buses will take you longer as the first is not direct. The region is one of the sunniest parts of Spain. But winter can be cold and sometimes wet. Very sunny days too! The house is heated and very comfortable. We live in a relaxed style with our two small dogs and our home is spacious with lots of character, set just behind the pretty village square.

Steve is a photographer and Dawn is in Marketing. We both love walking and exploring. We are almost at the end of the renovation of our house, which is already a guest house offering different experiences. We are sociable and enjoy meeting new people. We like to cook and provide very comfortable stays. We are happy to be sociable and take volunteers out when we have time. But we also need our own space and time therefore need people to also be very independent.

Fue una experiencia muy buena, Steve y Dawn son muy simpáticos, el lugar es muy lindo, mucha naturaleza. También pude conocer personas del pueblo y todos son muy amables. Lo recomendaría totalmente a otros Worldpackers

I had a great stay with Steve and Dawn! I stayed for two weeks, helping to walk dogs, serve breakfast, and change rooms and clean, so the work was not difficult at all and mostly was relaxing. The house itself is beautiful and the town is the cutest little town ever and the locals are so nice and welcoming. Steve and Dawn were so nice from the beginning, they took me to both Cadiz and Malaga for day trips and I did a few other day trips on my own on days off. If you want to be in a relaxing, outdoorsy setting with walking and hiking paths all around, this is definitely for you!!

I had a very good time in la casa de los Cuadros😊 the work and working hours are exactly like agreed in advance and Steve and Dawn were flexible regarding my days off.
You have everything you need to feel at home and having lunch/dinner together was always nice.
The town is very small but it's an interesting experience to stay there for a few days and Steve and Dawn can recommend beautiful spots nearby that are worth visiting!! Thanks again😊

Steve and Dawn were very welcoming and generous and they always had tasks for me to do to make me feel productive. The dogs, Zorro and Badger, are absolutely adorable, and walking them in the morning is a great way to start the day. They also found time to take me to other parts of Andalucía, which I really enjoyed, and gave me lots of free time to travel independently on my days off as well. Villalengua is a beautiful village with very warm and friendly locals who took the time to chat to me, and make me feel at home in the town.
This is really not an opportunity you want to miss out on!

Lamentablemente no fue una buena experiencia para ninguno y mi aporte no es lo que necesitaban. Se presentaron malos entendidos quizá por la barrera de idioma y cultura, porque no congeniamos o porque están pasando por un momento de estrés a causa de la licencia pero no me sentí cómoda a diferencia de los otros voluntariados en los que he estado. Por otra parte, nada justifica el trato ofensivo en la última conversación de parte de Dawn, por esa razón me fui antes.

Con otro ambiente de diálogo se hubiesen podido solucionar los problemas. Resalto la amabilidad de Steve y la naturaleza.
