Stay With Us on a Working Holiday!
We now offer the opportunity for a working holiday at our donkey Sanctuary in La Paca near Lorca, Spain.
We have a beautiful 4/5 berth fully equipped static caravan with views to die for. In return we ask that you are prepared to get stuck in and help with the care of the equines. It’s a great way to interact with all the animals with the daily chores which include poo picking the paddock, sweeping the shelter, and the best job of all grooming the donkeys and ponies, they really love it and queue up for your attention.
This is an animal lovers dream holiday, family’s with young children welcome or a small group of people who just enjoy life helping with all the rescue equines. Pets are also welcome. (Please note we have a strict no smoking policy and do not accept large party groups).
The static caravan has two bedrooms, one with bunk beds, the other with a small double bed, the sofa in the lounge also doubles up as a bed. There is a fully fitted kitchen equipped with everything you need, including a gas cooker and fridge. There is a clean bright shower room/wc and we supply fresh sheets and towels. Electric is included with air conditioning available at an extra charge. There is free WiFi.
