Region: AndaluciaI am semi-retired and have two properties in Spain. My main residence is a house in a small village outside Granada (where I live alone) and I also have an apartment in Torremolinos on the Costa del Sol. My family is in the UK and I visit them at least 6 times a year. I also like to travel when I am not working or do not need to be at home. At the moment I am specifically looking for someone who can stay in the Torremolinos apartment and be available there to welcome paying guests, change wash and iron bed linen, keep the apartment clean and tidy and water the plants. From time to time you may have to look after my cat, Molly, if I am away from home. The deal will be accommodation only and you would have to provide your own food. I think this would suit someone who wants to improve their Spanish and stay in one place rather than travelling around a lot so I would prefer longer stays but would consider shorter ones too.
Region: Valencian CommunityI live in a very pretty mountain village near Alcoy and in Denia by the sea . The 600 year old house in the mountain village has nearly completed renovation (95%)(still some work left but bedrooms and living areas are finished). i spend varying amounts of time in each (with a little jack russel type doggy). I have become aware of the 'workaway' scheme through friends who currently have workawayers living with them. One friend in Denia and others who run a spiritual centre. Activities that i do that may be of interest are tai chi, wushu, music (currently working on a mantra album with friends) using live instruments: (piano,keyboards,guitar,sitar,precussion,etc,), with logic pro. Also using dslr video camera (canon) and editing (final cut)(motion 5), learning adobe after effects. I have been learning sound healing and other spiritual areas for a few years (not an expert but friends are) Also paint but not for a while , (room for you to paint for sure) I would like to learn many extra things particuarly chinese medicine, acupuncture, manderin etc.
Region: CataloniaWe are a close happy 3 generation family from England plus 3 cats and 2 dogs, who moved to Catalunya Spain 8 years ago, we have settled into the lifestyle and are in the process of building an holistic retreat. We are non smokers but are happy to accept smokers as long as its away from the house. Our Finca is on 7 hectares of land, with 500 olive trees, almond and walnut trees, variety of fruit tress, grapes, figs and an allotment. As much as possible we try not to use any chemicals on the land. We are restoring the old farm house (slow process)..... and always working on the land clearing, weeding, pruning etc Our aim eventually is to have a retreat where people can learn spiritual awareness through courses and to have holidays here in a tranquil, relaxing setting with a bit of fun thrown in.
