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

I loved this experience and wished I stayed more then two weeks. The people are so welcoming and lovely and the place is really nice. It takes a 20 min walk to go from el Cortijo to the bus stop (there also is a shopping centre) that connect you with all the cities along the coast until Marbella. The work hours were varied enough and were not heavy. Thank you all and hope to see again El Cortijo!
El Cortijo es un lugar increíble! Desde Peggy , Linda, Manolo, Domingo, Alejandra hasta Gali Eli Naty! Todos excelentes personas. Tuve unas semanas hermosas en ese lugar paradisíaco. Se disfruta mucho la naturaleza y llegué un poco tarde para la piscina pero tambien pude disfrutar. Recomiendo totalmente q vayan al Cortijo. Los voy a estar visitando cualquier día de estos! ❤

I had a great time at the Cortijo with Peggy, Manolo and the other employees. Great environment, atmosphere and surroundings. Marbella and Estepona are lovely towns and it is also easy to travel to other pretty villages around the area. Would love to go back someday. Thanks Peggy for welcoming us.
A passada por el cortijo, foi incrível! O trabalho é justo, estivemos ali fazendo pintura e manutenção nos apartamentos em troca tinhamos um flat a nossa disposição e maquinas de lavar. Peggy, Manolo, Linda e todos os outros foram sempre impecáveis conosco! Foi uma passagem linda! Gracias chicos!!!
I was young once 😊 and can imagine this is a great way for you to see the world and keep it affordable. I will be happy to contribute to this idea in return for some help 😎 Work will be easy and never more than 5-6 hours per day so you can enjoy the rest of the time off :-) If you speak both English and Spanish reasonably you will get preference!About the host
