El Cortijo de los Caballos
I was young once 😊 and can imagine this is a great way for you to see the world and keep it affordable. I will be happy to contribute to this idea in return for some help 😎 Work will be easy and never more than 5-6 hours per day so you can enjoy the rest of the time off :-) If you speak both English and Spanish reasonably you will get preference!
We are a small family run guest house which hosts weekly weddings as well as other group celebrations from March to November. With only one main guy in charge of general maintenance (Manolo), a part-time gardener and the cleaning staff, we are a small team. They are all great people to work with. You will be treated with respect and would just be helping out with some of the daily routines, nothing complicated. No uniform needed, anything comfortable will do.
Your hours will be flexible except for on changeover days when we need all the help we can get :-P and to assist in preparing for and clearing up after weddings in the summer. Whenever possible we will give you 2 days off in a row so you can go somewhere and stay the night in another city.
Please note you have a kitchen to make your own meals as there is no restaurant on site and we are a little off the beaten track which means you need to walk to the bus stop in the Diana Commercial Centre (1 km). Here you will also find restaurants/bars, supermarket, pharmacy etc. It will certainly be possible to catch a ride with me or Manolo when we go home so you only need to get the bus back.
Since we joined Worldpackers we have had a number of no-shows and last minute cancellations which are very upsetting when you are counting on the volunteer to be there and you have said "no" to so many others! So please, do not use us as a back-up but only apply and confirm when you are sure you can come!!
Any questions let me know :-)
