I am a retired lady and I live in a rural location near Alhama de Granada with two small dogs. I have a renovated cortijo with garden and pool and a large workshop/store. I am approx 10 kilometres from Alhama and 50 kilometers from Granada. I am part of a small English speaking community with Spanish friends, and we socialize and take full advantage of the local culture which is available here.
Alhama de Granada is an area of outstanding natural beauty, with its own gorge, river and thermal healing baths. There are plenty of really spectacular walks nearby, including to the local lake, Bermejales. My friendship group is extremely social with plenty of suppers, pizza nights, and tapa trips to the local town. English is the main languages amongst my group but I am extremely keen to speak Spanish.
I am looking for Spanish conversation, preferrably from a native speaker, for some part of the day. I am having regular lessons and wish to improve my knowledge over the summer. Formal instruction is not required. I also would like help with interior painting, renovating wooden windows, and a bit of gardening. My work is general maintenance, not a building project.

You will stay in a double room with your own faciliies. I have a large parking space so could accommodate a mobile home. I will provide meals or food.
Alhama is a very attractive small town. It is just over 1 hour to the coast and 1 hour to the Sierra Nevada. Alhama has many bars and they all serve the famous Granada tapas with every drink. It has a wonderful gorge and the path which runs along the river is a t0 minute walk to two good restaurants.
