Area: AndaluciaURGENT. My last workawayer has had to leave suddenly and return home due to a family berevement. I am looking for someone to start immediatley. I only take single work awayers, no couples or friends traveling together please. At the moment there is still some bramble clearance that needs doing, painting inside and outside of the house and mixing of concrete so I can finish rendering the wall. Someone with carpentry skills would be good as I have a door that needs fitting. Horse riding is available for someone who is a very experienced rider. Echo hasn't been ridden since last November and hadn't done much before that. He is very stuborn! Days off would need to be taken mid week so you can cover for me looking after the animals when I am away at weekends compeating with the dogs. I expect you to work 25 hours a week in return for full board and accomadation in my guest appartment. If you have a problem with being told what to do by a woman please don't apply!!! I live on a small holding 2 1/2 km from the traditional Andalucian village of Riogordo, with my 2 dogs, 2 horses, 7 peacocks and 2 chickens. I have 2 1/2 acres of land set at the bottom of the valley with a river running through it and lots of orange trees. I had a bad fall off one of the horses and it has left me struggling with all that needs doing round here. I am English and an artist, writer and dog trainer. I take my inspiration from the animals and the surounding countryside. It is a truly magical and special place here, far from the hustle and bustle of the city I used to live in. A place to be inspired, batteries recharged and some where to get in touch which your spiritual side. The river is full of trout, frogs and turtles and has herons nesting near by that come down to fish. The trees are full of oranges, lemons and pomegranites. Nothing beats picking an orange straight from the tree and eating it!

Area: Castilla la ManchaHola soy Mar, estoy construyendo con ayuda de amigos y voluntarios mi casa en el campo. Ya está creciendo el huerto, pero aún queda barro por poner en las paredes. Me encantaría recibir a alguien con conocimientos de carpintería ya que la casa necesita un porche, a parte de unos muebles hechos con pallets. La creatividad tiene cabida en todos los rincones, también en los mosaicos de la cocina. Hasta que funcione la ducha hay una habitación con dos camas en la casa del pueblo,(típica manchega) pero yo me quedo a menudo en el campo. La casa es muy agradable y acogedora, pero es un loft con altillo y compartiriamos la estancia. Siempre disfruto mucho de la compañía de la gente agradable que me visita, hacemos salidas al campo en las tablas de Daimiel y las lagunas de Ruidera que podemos recorrer en el kayak. Hay pueblos muy bonitos en los alrededores como Almagro con su festival internacional de teatro en Julio y Campo de Criptana por ejemplo. el trabajo es de 5 horas al día y yo aporto las comidas y alojamiento.
