Region: AndaluciaRetired expatriot (Scottish) living in Spain for 11 years. I have a villa and land in the coastal foothills near to Sayalonga, Axarquia. 7km from the coast and 14km from the coastal resort of Nerja. Sevilla and Grenada (the Alhambra) are not far away and there is a very good bus service operating from Torre del Mar, the closest large town. The villa has a wonderful outlook facing West towards Malaga bay, Gibraltar and North Africa. In winter because we face south west we get the max amount of sun available. In high summer I return to the UK to visit friends, relatives and avoid the heat. The land has 20 odd Almond trees, olives, figs, Apricots and other fruit trees. I have a vegetable patch to provide fresh produce as much as possible. I try to be as organic/green/bio as possible. Irrigation is a problem most of the year and cold winds in the winter months.
Region: West AlgarveWe are looking for 2 helpers. One with good horse skills to help principally in the stables. Another to help with our new organic kitchen gardens. We have just built a new 50sq. mtr. Poly tunnel and restored some ancient morish gardens. If you feel like a little bit of hard work up on the mountain get in contact. For this job you don't need to be a rider or to be experienced with horses but a good knowledge of plants, a strong back and a liking for working outside in the sun would all be helpfull. An ability to cook could be usefull, otherwise hope you are a good washer-uper. Our Lodge is a very relaxed riding and family farm stay holiday center. We are not some large impersonal holiday company but a small family group trying to restore and improve an historic stone built hill farm and care for our heard of a dozen or so local cross bred horses and ponies. We are carriage driving specialists and soon hope to be able to offer covered wagon holidays. The whole place survives on a very tight budget and we can afford to offer you a warm room , good food, the odd glass or two of local wine a lot of riding and responsibility
