My name is Gary and myself and my wife Gitika live out in the campo 10 mins from Colmenar in a beautiful, quiet and idyllic spot. We are a British couple, and have spent several years building a house here in Andalucia. We are growing organically and have many olive, pomegranate, fig and almond trees. We eat a mainly vegetarian vegan diet, although I do occasionally eat a little fish, so if you're a vegetarian, it would be great for you here as Gitika is an excellent cook.
We have been spending a lot of time in India and South America over the last few years, but now we want to spend more time here in Spain. We need people to help with our land, giving it some TLC and making it a more beautiful environment. Therefore we would welcome someone with a good attitude and positive energy to help us, especially people with experience of permaculture and gardening.
I have got a charming guest house with garden in the historic part of Caccamo (PA) - in the hills but not far from the coast - between Palermo and Cefalu'.
Caccamo offers stunning views, a Norman castle, many churches and one cathedral, great walks in and around the town, very good restaurants and a lake for watersports.
The beaches are only a short drive away.
There is a direct bus service from Mon - Sat via Termini Imerese to Palermo and Cefalu'.
We are Ian & Helen. We have 2 small children. We own
a 400yr old traditional Irish thatched Clachan. With a small organic veg
garden and a few chickens. We live near vibrant cities and great sandy
surf beaches. We have an easy going attitude. The sympathetic restoration of our house is taking time and using traditional skills. This year we are aiming to get alot of work done on our house. Last year we hosted 16 Workawayers and got alot of quality work done. So if your strong, don't mind roughing it and getting your hands dirty, get in touch.
We also prefer people to stay a minimum of 3wks. Longer is even better.
