The Exchange

Work, learn, enjoy, share good time with the owners - a male couple - and our guests in our guest house that looks like a friends' house, located 11 kms far from the center. The help we need is gardening, cleaning, doing the dishes, looking after our pets (dogs and cats), sometimes serving the guests and once-in-a-while with small constructions. During the free days, visit the beautifull surrounds like beaches, waterfalls, the old center etc.
