  • Description

    Description

    We're Greg & Lukasz, and we're renovating what is probably the largest traditional cavehouse in Spain, in the mountains of rural Andalucia (Orce, Granada province).

    DO you love to garden? Have any building skills? Happy to decorate? Love dogs (we have three!)?

    If so get in touch and come and stay. You'll have your own apartment with private bedroom, living room, bathroom and a basic kitchen. We're looking for easy-going people that like to help and get things done.

    We are renovating part of our cavehouse - landscaping the gardens, fitting a new kitchen, decorating the cave. We work Mon>Friday, usually from 11am>5pm on the building work. Please note we're building 5 days a week and we'll expect you to help with that. We'll provide food and accommodation - note we're pescatarian and generally vegetarian - so no meat - just veggie meals and or fish.

    Please note that some of these tasks (eg decorating) are messy and you will require old clothes to work in. You'll be able to choose work that suits your interests - landscaping/ in the garden/ decorating etc

    We prefer non-smokers, and in any case no smoking inside thanks.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    It's a beautiful area - we live in a small village 6km from a small town (Orce). Lots of great walks. Look online for information on Altiplano Granada - our last workaway loved the geothermal pools and the landscape, the peace and quiet and the stars at night.
