Area: Valencian CommunityBeautiful 2 hectare finca in Spain 90km S of Valencia city in the valley of Orba near by the sea (9Km) and byside the rio Girona. Area dominated by Bambus and Orange trees. We are a german married couple - 49 and 56 years old. We are very open-minded, tolerant and respectful of people of different races, religions, cultures, sexual orientation, etc. we can speak to helpers in either English, Spanish or german - it is up to them. We have 2 dogs and 4 cats and we don't smoke - so we prefer nonsmokers. Every couple (or 2 persons) have your own bedroom/bathroom. We have Internet - so helpers can check their email once a day. In Ondara is also a big shopping center with wifi. We would require a minimum stay of 2 weeks (a longer stay is possible), and we expect 5 hours work per day. We have many things that need to be done in the garden, orchard, bambus forest, new house, workshop, etc. There is no lack of work nor of variety of work, from the simple to the complicated and from the brawny to the brainy. We are very flexible with work schedules and work chores to be done. The spanish bus company "ALSA" has national buses which goes from all big towns to Ondara (Barcelona, Valencia, Alicante...)We will pick you up by car in Ondara on first arrival. The two nearest towns (Beniarbeig and Sanet y Negral)are each about a 10 minute bicycle ride away; we have two mountain bikes that helpers can use to bike through the countryside. Beniarbeig has also a big community Pool and a bus goes also to Denia city it takes 1/2 hours. -------------------------------------------------- A little about our projects: We try to minimize water and to reuse and recycle as much waste as possible onsite; the rest is put in recycling containers in town. We have extensive knowledge and experience in the design and contruction of houses and buildings and personally designed and built absolutely everything (house, buildings, electrical and water systems, etc.) on the finca with own hands from top to bottom (often with some manual help and advice from family and friends) -------------------------------------------------- Below are some photos and more can be sent when you contact us.Thanks in advance for getting in touch to show any possible interest.
