    The ongoing situation with the Covid-19 Virus remains of concern to us all, but appears to be generally improving, which is very encouraging. although we do expect any volunteers to maintain social distancing and follow any/all regulations which remain in place during their stay - especially when in the wider community. (Spanish Police are enthusiastic with their fines!!).

    Accommodation is in our Caravan, which in addition to a large double bed OR the option of two single sofa beds, offers good cooking facilities (a gas hob/Grill/Oven/Fridge, plus a microwave oven and toaster).

    The nearby Swimming Pool Bathroom, is for your exclusive use and is where you can do the 'washing up' after cooking.

    We are now experiencing much warmer/dryer weather, with daytime temperatures typically between 25-30+ and overnight 'lows' of around 10-15 degrees.

    We live in a fully renovated 'Farm House' with our 'rescue friends', a Jack Russell X, 2 cats and our latest 'family member', a young Mastin X, who is large, super friendly, very energetic and strong!! :-)

    So any volunteers will need to be animal friendly and not have pet allergies.

    Are you friendly, enthusiastic, responsible, with common sense and a positive 'can do' attitude?

    This is strictly a non-smoking and drug-free environment - with no exceptions - neither do we accept volunteers with pets or children.

    There is a decent and reliable, Internet connection available.

    If you have any questions, please ask!

    An excellent opportunity to visit a beautiful and unspoilt area of Spain, rich in history and with numerous places of interest nearby.

    Located at 1,000 metres above sea level, there are long distance views and clean air, with low levels of traffic, Moorish Castles, Roman remains, friendly locals, authentic Spanish living, local Bars serving tapas free with your drink (not coffee/water!) and a generally relaxed way of living.

    You may want to improve your Spanish or acquire your first few phrases to take back home along with many positive memories of stunning scenery and a relaxed way of life in a simple, unsophisticated environment.

    I am looking for fit, healthy, responsible, NON-SMOKING volunteers who are willing to undertake a variety of outside tasks including gardening (digging, weeding, possibly some planting), outside wall painting and re-purposing of pallets .

    As a minimum, I need a quantity of them to be 'dismantled' - using a dedicated tool for that express purpose!

    No particular skills are required for these tasks, but I do expect a positive attitude and willingness to carry out simple tasks with a decent level of diligence and good-natured enthusiasm.

    At this time of year, it makes a great deal of sense to start work early, to take advantage of the 'cooler' mornings! :-)

    All volunteers should be reasonably fluent in English and able to both speak it and understand it.

    Please ensure that your WorkAway Profile provides ALL the essential information about you (and anyone you are traveling with), and that there is at least ONE very recent photo of you! (to assist with identification upon collection).

    If you are NOT flying into Spain, you would need to provide me with documentary evidence of a NEGATIVE Covid-19 test taken within 3 days of arriving at our house - and I reserve the total right to refuse entry if I am not satisfied with the documentation being shown.....

    I look forward to hearing from you and am happy to answer any specific questions that you might have or provide additional information if required.

    You will be accommodated in our Caravan, located about 75 metres from the house, on its own 'hard standing' area with wonderful far reaching views towards the Subbetica National Park.

    The Caravan is a large 4-berth, quite old, but in very good condition (clean and dry) and is best suited to two friends sharing either single sofa beds or a couple, on the converted double bed and keeping the other area as a small dinette facility (as indicated, we have just Hosted three friends, who stayed for three weeks and said that they enjoyed their time in the Van and found it warm and comfortable!).

    It is well equipped with a small fridge, Gas oven/Grill, Gas Hob, microwave oven, toaster and heating if required.

    There are sun blinds and fly screens to all windows.

    Although the Caravan usually has its own bathroom facilities, these are not currently in use, so we are able to offer any volunteers the sole use of our Pool Bathroom (Built around three years ago), which has a full shower, hand basin, toilet, kitchen sink plus Fridge and its own supply of hot water from an electric heater - so a significant 'upgrade' from the 'on board' facilities in the Caravan - and avoids the chores of emptying the 'cassette toilet' and having to refill the water butt for the Caravan.

    This bathroom is located at the side of the swimming Pool, about 20 metres from the Caravan.

    You would of course, also have use of our swimming pool after work as well as the large terraced areas for sunbathing.

    We ask that volunteers do NOT enter the pool having applied sun cream/lotion/oil etc - thank you!

    Ideally, I am looking for a couple or two friends traveling together. Individuals can apply, but of course, need to be prepared to share the Caravan with another volunteer (of the same gender).

    We offer vegetarian/vegan food, which we will provide for you to prepare at the Caravan, although we may invite you to share some evening meals with us on one of the outside terraces.

    The house is several miles from the nearest town of any real size (20,000+ pop) and public transport is non-existent, so there will be limited opportunities for independent travel,

    Maybe once a week, I would be prepared to drive volunteers to one of the nearby local towns for sightseeing/shopping, or onward bus connections to Granada or Cordoba - both of which are between an hour to an hour and a half away.

    This location, would definitely not suit 'party animals' who are looking for crowds and noise, although there is a local bar about 10 minutes walk away, which also serves food - and where some basic Spanish will be required!

    (Please note that 'excessive' alcohol use is not acceptable to me under any circumstances - and yes, I decide what is considered to be 'excessive').

    However, if you appreciate clean mountain air and the tranquility of being in a peaceful, rural environment, I'd love to hear from you!

    There are excellent opportunities to walk through surrounding Olive groves and enjoy wonderful distant views of the Sierra Nevada Mountains and Subbetica National Park.

    A lack of 'light pollution' means that star gazing is also a wonderful thing to do!

    We have plenty of space to park a Campervan and the Volunteers could use our Caravan if preferred?! NB: There is NO facility for 'black waste disposal' .
