  • Description

    Description

    We're a young family of 3 that moved from England 4 years ago to start a life on the small Mediterranean island of Gozo. We bought and live in an old farmhouse which we plan to split into 3 separate dwellings so have a lot of work to be done, ranging from carpentry & tiling to painting & general maintenance. We're looking for someone who shares our love for restoring old buildings.

    We're also passionate about health and sustainable living, but enjoy a glass of wine or two whilst cooking up new tasty vegan dishes :) Our 3 year old daughter is outgoing, bubbly and well behaved (most of the time!) and our small 4 year old yorkipom pup is very friendly and patient - living with a toddler, he kind of has to be! Due to his breed and type of fur, he doesn't molt and is also hypo allergenic.

    If this project sounds exciting to you, we look forward to hearing from you very soon! :)

    Gozo is the smaller sister island of Malta. Each are beautiful in different ways but Gozo remains more old-fashioned with an unchanged culture. There are many beautiful beaches and interesting architecture to be seen, as well as walks and hikes in the cooler months and tourist attractions such as the Ggantija temples which are older than the Egyptian pyramids!

    English is the second spoken language on the Maltese islands and as we are English too, it is a great opportunity to improve your English skills if necessary :)

    Good tiling skills would also be favoured as we need to re-tile the floor downstairs and create the kitchen backsplash.

    English is our mother tongue but would like to improve our French too!

    Because we have a vegan diet, we will happily cook for you but if you choose to eat meat, we can supply you with the ingredients, provided you cook it yourself. :)

    We live on a main road with an excellent bus service and bus stops very nearby. There is a direct bus from our house to Ramla bay, a beautiful sandy beach. There are also two supermarkets just a few doors down and the "city centre" of Victoria is just a 15 minute walk away. We have a car and are also happy to give you a lift somewhere. If that isn't enough, you can also take a 25 minute ferry ride over to the main island of Malta.
