We are an English couple living in a large Finca in the mountains of Los Velez, Almeria, Spain. We have taken early retirement and are slowly developing our new home. We have a salt water infinity pool with 180 degree views and an 8 person Jacuzzi. We have a small dog who found us a year ago.

You would be living in a rural part of Spain which is rich in ancient culture and the pace of life is slow. Local markets give a real feel for how people live as do the many bars! There is a theatre in the town which has occasional plays, music etc. (in Spanish) and many local festivals especially during the Spring months. The Semana Santa parades are definitely a sight to see. As we are in the mountains the air and views are undoubtedly some of the best in Spain. You can join us in learning the language and mixing with local people. We are 40 minutes from the coast. The nearest beach is at Aguilas or more secluded beaches towards San Juan de los Terreros. Vera is just over an hour's drive. We continually have birds of prey flying over the Finca including Golden Eagles and Griffin Vultures. A bird spotters paradise!
We are looking for help from a naturist to prepare the finca for quests. Gardening and painting are a priority. You will be able to mix with our international visitors and use all the facilities, which includes the jacuzzi mountain bike and a quad.

Sharing an apartment with your own room with stunning views and a king size double bed. Bathroom includes a bath and shower.
We are on the edge of the Natural Park with many lovely walks in Pine Forests and to ruined castles with stunning views across the countryside. The lovely village of Velez Blanco with its Moorish castle is just a couple of kilometers away as are the Cuevas de Los Letreros - the origin of the Indalo Man which has become the emblem of Almeria. We have a fully insured, two person quad bike as well as mountain bikes available to use free of charge. Local transport is mostly non-existent except for long-range buses to larger towns and cities such as Murcia (an hour) and Granada or Alicante (both about an hour and a half).
