We (I'm Spanish and my wife is English) are the proud owners of a little hovel in one of the most picturesque places in southern Spain, in the Sierra Mágina, in Jaén. We've got an old cave in the patio, which needs to be opened up and renovated and all sorts of plans for the house, but no time or money!! .... so next November we are going to start work seriously, and we'll be looking for one ot two people to help us out.
Cooking / shopping
Help in the house
Some digging, building, painting, renovating the cave. We want to use traditional methods for this, so if you know about, we'd love your help! We want to move the kitchen in the house, so plumbing knowledge would be good too. Plus languages - Lorraine wants to practice Greek, German and French, and Serafin needs to learn more English!
We can help you improve your Spanish and your English, the Sierra Mágina is a beautiful mountain range with plenty of walks, the whole area is virtually unknown to foreign tourists, but we're very close to Úbeda and Baeza, both world heritage towns. We can teach you how to cook lovely Spanish food!
Spanish, English, a little French, German, Italian
Upstairs, private double/twin room, shared bathroom. ( has a double and a single bed) The stairs are very steep! We'll provide breakfast, lunch and dinner, but might not always be around to cook it ( would be nice to share cooking, we're both chefs, but good to have a break sometimes!) No smoking in the house.
Our house is in the village of Bedmar. From the village there are buses to Jaén and to Úbeda, but we might be able to take you somewhere by car, depending on work. It's a very small village, just a few bars and shops, not much going on, but perfect if you like walking, or just relaxing somewhere peaceful. We hope to have wifi, but we don't have a tv. In November and December the weather is usually dry, sunny, cold at night, great for walking.
Limited internet access
We have pets
We are smokers
Maximum 4-5 hours a day, 5 days a week.
