Naquera Meliana

Hello, we are a group of friends and collaborators who decided to start an agricultural project. We want to maintain a healthy and sustainable lifestyle. We have been doing the project for three years. We live in a rural house surrounded by the Valencian hills and in the village of Meliana that is next to the fields that we cultivate. From Naquera it takes 30 minutes to get to Valencia, in a car or you can take a bus and subway that will last an hour and a half. Naquerà, the nearest town, is 20 minutes away and has everything you need (bank, post office, supermarket, bar, etc., etc.) Meliana has a metro nearby. In Naquera we live, with 4 dogs, 2 cats, 4 goats, chickens, a pig. The landscape around the house and its surroundings is beautiful. It only takes a short walk to get to the top of the hills with fantastic views of the city or the mountains, or you can explore more extensive terrain and get equally impressive views. A wonderful place to relax and reflect, with good Mediterranean cuisine. We speak Spanish, English, Italian and French. The aid consists of 5 hours in the morning from Monday to Friday. At 10 am each morning, as we work, we stop for 30 minutes to eat a sandwich that is included. The main part of the work in the fields consists in planting and harvesting vegetables and eliminating weeds. When necessary, we sometimes stay at home to work. This may include: cleaning, general housekeeping and, sometimes, carpentry and construction work. We are always open to new ideas for projects. So do not hesitate to recommend improvements Cultural exchange and learning opportunities Here you can work and develop your linguistic skills, develop your knowledge of agriculture, learn to prepare Mediterranean dishes and make amazing new friends. You will leave your comfort zone and make lifelong changes to who you are. Accommodation in Naquera we have two rooms dedicated to volunteers and in Meliana one. We can provide you with sheets and pillows if you wish. We will provide breakfast, lunch and dinner, always with the collaboration of all for a good maintenance of the places, the dinner is cooked among all promoting a spirit of collaboration! In Naquera we have Wifi that is good for Facebook and WhatsApp, but it is slower for YouTube and streaming movies.

As said above, we believe in sustainability and personal growth. The days pass pleasant, some day in the field is harder than another, do not be afraid to get dirty and work! But relax ... The morning goes by fast! In the moments of rest we can share activities such as walks, yoga, meditation, massage, reiki or simply rest! Anyone who wants to teach and share their knowledge and experiences in everything related to care and personal growth, physical, spiritual is welcome!

Fue de las mejores experiencias que tuve, aprendí mucho de cosecha y cómo cultivar las verduras, pero también aprendí a conectar mejor con la personas. La energía del lugar es increíble me voy con ansias de volver del Naquera.




I had an realy nice experience at the farm! The farm was amazing and it was amazing to make long walks in the area! Only I wish there was some more communication about small details but it was Oke. Gracias para todo!




bien fue mi primera experiencia con worldpackers y estaba un poco nerviosa pero fue simplemente extraordinario y en ninguno momento me arrepiento de estar allí.
Me ha encantado un montón. Y la casa tiene todo lo que necesitamos y una vista increible, está rodeada de una bella naturaleza y en la noche se mira muchas estrellas. El trabajo se hace muy bien es mucho tranquilo y obtuve una gran conexión con la naturaleza. En Naquera/Meliana crecí, aprendí y conocí personas que mi voy recordar para siempre. Naquera/Meliana in my heart. Gracias por darme la bienvenida más que muy bien.Hasta luego...




Pierre y Bet son excelentes anfitriones, las tareas no son pesadas y el horario es genial. No era lo que yo personalmente buscaba y creo que se pueden mejorar algunas cosas para los voluntarios. Puede ser experiencia interesante según el interés de cada uno.
Gracias por todo!
