We need a volunteer or two to support the Tourism Office in Altea displaying alternative proposals for visitors. There will be a lot of work to be done during the summer holidays managing the touristic information from a non permanent office located in the old town. Volunteers will work shoulder with shoulder with staff. During July there will be two workcamps on the same location, so there will be new people coming and will be nicer.
Volunteers need to stay minimun 4 weeks, they are welcome to stay more time. Volunteers need to have some knowledge of Spanish, good English and other languages such as German, French, Russian, Dutch or Norwegian are welcome.
There is a chance to stay more time in Altea if both sides agree. Volunteers maybe asked to give a deposit of 50,00 EUR to guarantee that they will stay at least 4 weeks.
Unterkunft und Verpflegung
Accommodation will be in a country summer house in Altea La Vella, 4 km away from the working place, so they will need to go by bike or car (provided by the organization). Volunteers will buy the food at a local CO-OP supermarket using coupons from the Town Hall and cook for themselves on a gas cooker. Volunteers will sleep on bunk beds. Please bring a summer sleeping bag. Weather will be fine as we are in a Mediterranean touristic spot.
Lage und Freizeit
Altea is a town and municipality located in the province of Alicante, Spain, north of Benidorm on the section of Mediterranean Coast called the Costa Blanca. Altea is a nice little town which offers amazing views. The town is located in the seaside and offers possibilities of riding bicycles, take a sunbath on the beach, climb the mountains, have a trip to the lighthouse and other activities during your free time. It is also possible to see other towns at the weekend. At present, the economy of Altea is based on tourism, which started to grow in the 1950s because of its good weather, beaches and the labyrinthine streets with whitewashed house-fronts that characterize the town.
