  • Description


    I'm a 55-year old woman who has dedicated her professional life to music and travelling. Now I'm swifting my life from Madrid to the Granada coast, where I grow avocado, mango, chirimoya and several other fruits. I'm also refurbishing a house in old town Almuñecar.

    But I still need to travel... and my animal family needs love, food and supervision!

    I need someone who is handy to help me finish a staircase railing and painting. I might also need someone who loves animals and nature and who is willing to stay with my two cats, my two dogs and my trees while I'm away, later in summer.

    Soy una mujer de 55 años, que he dedicado mi vida profesional a la música y los viajes. Ahora estoy cambiando mi vida de la ciudad a la naturaleza de la costa de Granada, en donde cultivo aguacate, mango y chirimoya, además de otras frutas. También estoy restaurando una casa en el casco antiguo de Almuñécar.

    Pero aún necesito viajar... y mi familia animal necesita amor, comida y supervisión.

    Necesito a alguien habilidoso que me ayude a construir la barandilla de una escalera y a pintar. También podría necesitar, más adelante, a alguien enamorado de los animales y la naturaleza dispuesto a quedarse cuidando de mis dos perras, mis dos gatas y mis árboles mientras viajo.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I'm in the Almuñécar área, a 3000-year old little town on the Mediterranean; 1 hour from Granada city, with its amazing history and hot water natural spas, 1 hour away from Málaga, the birthplace of Picasso. Neolithic painted caves of Nerja, 30 km away. Surrounded by spectacular nature, there are trekking trails and rivers to explore. A place full of beauty and peace. And fruit on the trees!!!
