Gain in Spain in the Cava/Penedès wine region close to Barcelona

This is the Deal

Like wine? Then you'll like this workaway experience! We are deep in the heart of the High Penedes (700 metres up), which is located in the Spanish wine countryside, Catalonia. The landscape is home to pine forests and mountain villages, all perfect for Wine Country Bike Tours (we have bikes available for you to use). You have the opportunity to travel further a-field at the weekends - we're 75 mins from Barcelona and 45 mins to the nearest beach - although most place are hard to reach on a daily basis without a car as there is no public transport, but we have fast internet and fine weather.

Our philosophy is work hard, play hard: Your weekends are free to do as you please, and mon-fri you are required to do a combination of admin, cleaning and work outside. We'll make the most of your strengths, and work varies dependent on the time of year etc, so it's best to email first to enquire.
As from now, we have availability for up to 5 people able to do any or all of the following tasks:

1. Outside Work to include rotavating, strimming, log cutting (chain saw), landscaping, lawn maintenance, bike maintenance and cleaning.
2. Inside Work to include cleaning, painting, kitchen etc
3. Admin to include database building and maintaining, blogging winery visits, social media expertise, telephone skills. If you are Italian then we would add Italian lessons on top of the above as we have an event each year in Italy.

Work is from Monday to Friday and the daily routine is as follows:
08:00 - 09:00 Breakfast
09:15 start tasks
12:30 lunch
17:00 finish up tasks
18:15 Help preparing dinner
Dinner at 19:00 approx
Washing up

For breakfast and lunch you can sort yourself out with whatever's in the well stocked house. We provide a selection of fine wines with dinner, and we cook evening meals together.

If you enjoy the countryside then you should enjoy the place.
Min stay 3 weeks.
