The Experience

Summer is around the corner and we are getting lots of reservations. I need someone to help me register expenses, organise our shopping, make sure that rooms are ready for guests and so on. Simple administrative task that will make my life much easier so I have more time to develop new things in the kitchen. You'll have plenty of time to explore the area and enjoy yourself!

My experience at Pacheco Farmhouse was incredible. The hostel/B&B is located right in front of a river and it's surrounded by lush, green mountains. It's so sweet. The work was consistent and seemed pretty standard (cleaning, cooking/helping with dinner, general maintenance.) What made the experience exceptional for me was the opportunity to learn new things. Jimena and the other staff were very open to sharing what they knew with me and they were patient in teaching me new things. That made the already great experience that much better. Thanks Jimena, Marga, Rosario, Maria, and Daniel!

Pacheco is perfect if you're looking for a really nice place out of crowded cities. The nature around is beautiful, between the amazingly green mountains, the river, the waterfalls and even more, you won't be disappointed.

The staff is really friendly (even if your Spanish is not that good), everybody is really helpful and ready to teach you whatever you want to know about their knowledge, you can feel like home in no-time.

There is no stress in the working part neither, as long as you're being part of the daily tasks and make the place looking even more amazing !

Pacheco is everything you'd dream of when you think of Pinterest, reclaimed wood, a light and breezy atmosphere, an environment filled with love, and being immersed in nature. Using my eye for photography while learning to master WIX online pages allowed me to practice what I love while testing it to grow in an encouraging and welcoming environment. Jimena, Chavo, Maria, the two cats, and Oso the fluffy puppy welcomed me right in and immediately, I felt at home.
