Hacienda Retreat

We offer this opportunity to FEMALES only because of the shared dormitory accommodation . We are also looking for helpers ideally that can speak spanish and english. I am english and the chef is spanish.

At the Hacienda we have a wonderful organic rural location - offering the helpers a chance to practice their Spanish/English, learn vegan/vegetarian cooking, interact with people from all over the world, enjoy yoga/meditation classes when invited and to make friends with their fellow helpers.
The Hacienda is in a rural location surrounded by olive groves and the rolling hills of Andalucia so if you enjoy nature, great weather, hiking and peaceful tranquility plus yoga and good food it will not disappoint.
We are usually looking for max 4 helpers in total to assist with the housekeeping/cooking and be part of the Hacienda Team :)

Here is a review from a recent volounteer helper Sofia, which best describes the environment - check out our other reviews on this site. "....This was my first volounteer placement and it was great! I spent a week at the retreat and will definitely be back in the future. Tracie is lovely, a great host that looks after her helpers. The work is simple (you work in shifts which makes it really easy) and worth it for all the perks: beautiful surroundings, the most amazing food and the chance to join in on yoga and meditation classes. The dorms where the helpers sleep are nice and comfy. Don't miss the chance of going on a trip to Montefrio on your day off. I had a great time at the retreat with my fellow helpers and got to relax in the beautiful surroundings. Thank you Tracie for a great first experience as a helper at your yoga retreat."

Thankyou Ane - you are always welcome to come back - we would love to see you again xx



I loved volunteering at Hacienda! Tracie and Jason are amazing people, always caring about us and our needs. The food (and Che, the chef ❤️) is incredible, as are the yoga classes. It’s a place far from the city, a great spot to relax. The shifts are not hard and it’s super fun.

Thank you Maya - yes come back anytime you are always welcome with us xxxx



My experience at the HACIENDA was amazing, Tracie was very welcoming from minute one, she made me feel very comfortable and safe. The work was mainly in the kitchen and a bit of cleaning with shifts that allowed me to have plenty of time for myself, I rested a lot, participated in the yoga classes, enjoyed the nature and the peace that the place gives you. The place is beautiful, and so are the people I met there, the volunteer girls are very friendly and sociable. I recommend this place if you are looking to connect with nature and have time for yourself.

Staying at la hacienda for two weeks was absolutely amazing! Tracie and Jason were very welcoming and looked after us well. The work was not difficult and just the right amount with lots of free time to relax in the beautiful location - the surrounding area is very nice to run/walk around. The girls I worked with were so much fun and I spoke a mixture of English and Spanish while I was there as there were people from all over the world. Thank you for such a wonderful experience to all those involved!
