This position is only for male volunteers please. Manolo is a one man band and often can do with an extra pair of hands for jobs which are only suitable for a man so I have created an extra position just for our male volunteers. Manolo has a great sense of humour and is easy to work for, you will feel like part of the team :-)Learn more

3 weeks and a great experience!
I worked with Manolo, Max and Domingo. My duties changed according to the needs: paint, take the trash, carry sand, rock and cement - some days easier, some harder, but everyone is easy-going and respects your limits. Peggy was very nice and solicitous about everything I asked, like changing dates and work hours.
In summer probably is more cheerful than November, but although is a bit isolated (supermarket/bus stop 20 min walking; Marbella 45 min by bus), I enjoyed chilling at the cozy house and great room. And you can get rides to Málaga too.
Thank you all!!
Altough I had a short stay at the Cortijo, it was enough to realize that Peggy is a great host, all the staff were very nice people that helped me with anything I needed, and the place is really beautiful. The work is fare and simple, and you'll have free time to enjoy the places nearby such as Marbella. Definitely recomended experience! :)
Had a really nice and relaxed time here. Beautiful place to stay and the work was enjoyable because of the full time staff here. The area is nice for some good hikes too. Thank you Peggy
Muy linda experiencia. Hay una pileta enorme solo para Worldpackers. Peggy es muy amable, siempre pregunta si va todo bien y si necesitas algo. Se preocupa por qué la estadía sea de lo más cómoda posible. Gracias Peggy por eso! Les recomiendo el cortijo a todos!
