El Puente

It’s about 2 hectares of olive, carob and some fruit trees. On top of a mountain with panoramic views. 30 mins drive to the coast, 10 mins to the local village or a 40min walk. There’s lots of beautiful mountain walks in the area.

There are multiple tasks from construction, tree pruning, gardening, veg garden, chickens, firewood. Everything works on solar energy. Accommodation is either in one of the two houses or a wooden cabin. The schedules are flexible depending on the tasks to do in a day. Experience managing house jobs and tools is preferable. A little experience and hands-on attitude goes a long way.

Joby is very friendly and his land is amazing, the landscape is breathtaking! Our experience was cutting the grass, helping him to build some walls. We had daily tasks as cleaning the pool, feed the chickens and the plants.
Remember that is in the middle of the mountains, so life there is very lonely and if you are going by car the road is very tight, so be careful. We had a great time and a lot of laughs together, thank you Joby see you next time!

Joby it's very nice guy, we stayed in a second house so it was comfortable and private. The road it's very tight, so if you go with your car, think about your bags, because our car couldn't get out there if joby didn't help us. It's a big land, we didn't have experience, so it was a little bit scary to cut the grass in some areas. We feed the chicken's and cleaned the pool, and take care of the joby's house. Some tasks are daily even in our day off. Thank so much joby,hope see you soon!

My partner and I spent 3 weeks here and loved it! Joby is a fun guy with loads of interesting and funny stories so we had a great time. The work was very manageable and we even learnt a few new skills along the way which we will use in the future. Blackjack & Lady (& the chickens) were a massive highlight for us and we will miss them so much!! I would recommend this experience to couples mainly as you will be spending time alone as Joby works during the week :) lovely place! Hope to be back one day. Thank you so much for the opportunity Joby! P.s the views are incredible.

We spent just over 3 weeks with Joby, in the beautiful mountains. Joby is a great guy, with endless stories and amazing cooking. The work was easily manageable and we learnt a few new skills too. BlackJack and Lady are the loveliest cats and will be the best companions to any volunteer who arrives. Overall, El Puente was a tranquil and idyllic place to be and I hope to be back one day soon.
