  • Description


    I'm a 56-year old woman who has dedicated her professional life to music and travelling. A couple years ago I decided to switch my life from Madrid to the Granada coast, where I grow avocado, mango, chirimoya and several other fruits. I also refurbished a house in old town Almuñecar.

    I need people who love nature and animals to help me with the land. Right now, the main tasks are pruning, cleaning wood, weeding, planting, laying out watering system... I prefer people who can use an electric chainsaw, but it's not a must.

    I live with 2 dogs and 2 cats who love people.

    I have a 32 square meter Moroccan haima for workawayers. Showers and meals take place in the house.

    Soy una mujer de 55 años, que he dedicado mi vida profesional a la música y los viajes. Hace un par de años decidí dejar mi vida de urbanita y vivir en medio de la naturaleza, cerca de la costa de Granada, en donde cultivo aguacate, mango y chirimoya, además de otras frutas. También he restaurado una casa en el casco antiguo de Almuñécar.

    Necesito personas amantes de los animales y la naturaleza que puedan echarme un cable con la tierra. En este momento, las tareas principales son podar, organizar la madera que sale de la poda, desbrozar, plantar, rediseñar el sistema de riego... Preferiría a alguien que sepa utilizar una motosierra, pero no es imprescindible.

    Viven conmigo dos perras y dos gatas muy sociables.

    Tengo una haima marroquí de 32 m2 bajo los chirimoyos bien equipada para dormir. Las duchas y las comidas se harían en la casa.

    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!!!
