    Hello, Hola friends,

    Short stays available 2 weeks minimum or ideally staying 3-4 weeks.


    I have been living and working here in the village of Algodonales for over 22 years.
    I have a Spanish horse, a cat and a small elderly rescue friendly dog called "Ellie".
    At present I only have room for one person to stay with us. Sorry no couples.
    Tasks are mainly gardening and painting for the new few weeks.

    PLEASE read the entire description, as it will answer most questions you may have, and it will save us both time.

    Please feel free to ask any questions about places throughout the year.

    To give you a better idea as to what I am like, please take the time to read my profile and reviews thoroughly before applying to me.

    Our villa is on the edge of Algodonales. It is one of the famous white villages "pueblo blanco" of Andalucia Spain. I'm in a great location as a base to improve and practice your Spanish as the village is just a 3 minute walk away.

    Please only apply to come to me if you are over the age of 22 years old (Under 22 welcome with good references) and do not mind physically helping & don't mind getting your hands dirty :-) and also if you can help us with the following tasks.
    I always need help with painting, gardening, vegetable plot and land clearing.

    Being situated in a beautiful region of Andalucia we are Just a 2 hour direct bus ride from Malaga.

    When writing to me please tell me a little about yourself if not in your profile: What have you done since leaving school? Where you are from? Any skills? Education? Hobbies? even if unrelated to the type of work we are doing. Our helpers are guests in my home and I like to know about them!

    I welcome long and short term visitors with a sense of humour and a strong work ethic who would like to fit into family life.
    Please take the time to read our work away references.

    A Big thank- you to all our previous helpers for their good work and great company.

    Kultureller Austausch und Lernmöglichkeiten

    Many volunteers have passed through our door over the years and we have really enjoyed meeting people from just about all over the world. We love to hear stories of their lives back home and the travels if any. We laugh as we exchange or life experiences together.
    Some people say that after spending time with us that they felt part of the family and that makes us feel really happy. I always like to think that people who stay with us pick up a new skill or two and as well as getting a good old work out in the garden! Plus a feeling of achievement that when they leave and take those special memories with them forward on their travels they will look back in years to come with a smile :-)
