  • Beschreibung


    We moved here in 2004 for a different lifestyle from S E England We have 4 sons in their 20s' & 30s. We own 12,000 sq m of land in a beautiful part of Spain- the Alpujarra- a green oasis between the Med and the Sierra Nevada mountains. We have 2 dogs, 4 cats, chickens, pigs, turkeys, ducks, geese, peacocks and LLAMAS. We are passionate gardeners and we open our garden every week to visitors. We also enjoy a productive vegetable garden.
    We ask our helpers to work 5 hours per day 5 days a week in exchange for board and lodgings and good food and great accommodation. We have had helpers from all parts of the world for more than 8 years and are very used to enjoying their help and company. We are very sociable and our house always enjoys plenty of visitors and you are always included in the activities. We work hard but enjoy life too!

  • Arbeit


    With a large garden we need help with keeping it under control [weeding and pruning]and developing it further. We produce plants for sale from our own stock as well as our own compost and manure. Although the animals don't need a great deal of maintenance or care they are a big part of our daily lives.
    General maintenance of the house is always part of our lives of course! [although it is under 10 years old] You would be helped along the way and not asked to do anything that we would not be happy to do.
    We open our garden to the public once or twice a week so we make cakes and serve visitors too.

    The local town is 2.5 km from here. where there are loads of bars, weekly market etc There is a thriving English community around here. As we are in the middle of the mountains there are lots of walks and the med is only 40 minutes drive [or by bus] and the skiing resort [Granada] is under 1.5 hours from here. Granada is a magnificent small city with a good university and heaps of cultural history.
