We had a wonderful stay at the Cortijo. Peggy was always helpful, and despite the fact that we spoke no Spanish, Manolo and the rest of the staff were kind, helpful, and easy to work with.
The place is a little isolated, but you can walk to the grocery in 30 min and explore the country roads with a lovely view of the mountains. We took day trips to Ronda and a few days in Malaga during our stay. The rest of our time we enjoyed the private kitchen and read by the pool.
The work is not too bad, and Manolo always works with a smile. Would recommend.
Hi Evelyn, Glad you liked the experience and was happy with the workload! Not sure how fast (or slow) you walk haha but the Diana Centre is only 900m away and across the road you have the large supermarket chain Aldi, so 30 min seems a bit long? Lovely to have you both here and wishing you all the best for the future :-)
It was my first experience like an Worldpacker and it was much better than I was waiting for
Firstly, Peggy is a fantastic host. She is a very attentive person who really cares about helpers' stay in el Cortijo. She was always willing to answer any question and to provide all equipments and instructions I needed to work there
The accommodation was very clean and well equipped. There were plenty of facilities and I had a comfortable and chilling stay
The work team is also very nice! I worked with Manolo, as I am learning Spanish, he explained me what to do in nice and patient way
I can tell you those days i spent there there was really amazings, Peggis is a lovely woman, she tries make you feel comfortable the whole time, she is really kind. The job itself isn't hard at all, only its have to do with precition and dedication. Your coworker is gonna be Manolo, who can teach you in a good way ans support you. Also i met her family, really nice people. The place is really beautiful and really quiet, besides the nature. I totally recommend this place, even if they need me i'll come back. I hope to see them again, Peggy thanks so much for everything ;)
Desde que llegue al Cortijo adore estar en el, es un lugar bellisimo para conectar con la naturaleza... Disfrutar la paz y descanzar lejos de la ciudad.
A solo unos minutos de marbella y otros tantos lugares pue conocer y pasear,,, :)
Peggi y Manolo son dos increibles personas, uno puede hablar con ellos sintiéndose en casa... Muy serviciales, Por cualquier motivo siempre bien predispuestos...
Un encanto!!! muuuuy muchas gracias por todo Peggi...
El trabajo a sido super flexible en horarios,,, Manolo siempre de buen humor nos da indicaciones...
De hecho me gustaria regresar!!!
