I could never thank enough peggy, manolo, eli, Pablo, Natalia, ivan, karu because of them my stay was pleasant, comfortable, I felt in family. Peggy is a great person, always in the ready to help, the rest days are flexible as well as the hours of work, not too much (Few hours at the morning) The work was not getting tired as long as I followed manolo's instructions, a very professional person. The studio where I lived is very clean, comfortable with a well equipped kitchen. Thank you peggy once again, thank you everybody, I would return as soon as possible...
El Cortijo is a paradisiac place where you can work a few hours a day and then enjoy the peace of the countryside and even the beach by a ten minute walking. The job can be phisically demanding, the Sun hits you in the morning hours, but nothing impossible, besides Manolo is the greatest worker just as his family (always smiling and willing to help you anytime.) Peggy tries yo give you as much comfort you need and she's very flexible with the days off and the Jobs. In fact, she was very kind, despite the fact I left earlier the date we fixed from the beginning.
thanks peggy. the swimmingpool is great the house really clean.
i had great time here with the others worldpackers. ( camilla if you read it from brasil 😘)
manolo muchas gracias para todo disfruto mucho trabajar contigo. me ayudas tambien mucho para mejorar mi español.
the work can be difficult but the hours are great.
for the next worldpacker you gonna enjoy but be aware that the cortillo is really far from everything so you have to enjoy being alone sometimes.
Thanks Anthony, yes like Camila says, this is not a party place, it is a place where you can relax and enjoy the country side and from here you can visit places where you can enjoy the night life, such as Puerto Banus and Marbella (no need to go all the way to Malaga by the way!)
It was a pleasure having you here, take care!
I loved the experience in El Cortijo! Peggy is a great host and truly understands what Worldpackers is all about. The work is not hard, you just have to be committed and proactive. There will always be someone there to guide you. People were super welcoming and I felt home. The place is amazing, beautiful and calm. This is not a party place, so you get to rest, get to know the surroundings and enjoy the day. Totally 5 stars experience. I wish I could have stayed longer and I simply can't wait to go back! Thank you, Peggy and everyone else from El Cortijo de los Caballos!
