We are a British Family Living in Andalucia in Spain. We live in Yator, in the Alpujarra's under Granada. For now....
We have three adventurous children, Martha 13, Elsie 12 and Zebedee 8 and two cats!
We also live in a community house with another family, and guests that stay for retreats break away. A small lovely community of conscious people! Everyone has their own space and we share some other spaces.
We are spiritual, open, hard- working, seeking a special couple or single person to join us here in this season of creativity. Ideally from end of November '21, for a minimum of two months.
We are looking for support to run the house, some cleaning, some food preparation and organisation and keeping the flow of the house peaceful and lovely. We also seek community minded people who will love the kids, bring authenticity and open mindedness and a seeking for deeper awakening in life for more love and freedom!
The role is 25 hours a week per person, with plenty of flexibility and open conversation for how the exchange runs.
Drivers are helpful but not essential / Car owners helpful but not essential / organised people very helpful / you must be an open person and able to communicate your needs, hopes, fears / Experience with children is great / experience in running a home important / bi-lingual English and spanish is a bonus / able to thrive in the countryside away from a lot of people... it is quiet here! Strong mental health needed for this kind of lifestyle. We seek adventurers and positive thinkers.
We live in a big property split into apartments. The near town of Cadiar is five minute drive. Malaga is 2 hours / Granada 1 hour / we are deep in the Alpujarra’s and we are deep in nature. Orgiva – the hippy town where amazing activities and life happens, is 35 minutes. You feel like you are really away from life. The coast and all its lively glory is 40-60 minutes away and we travel regularly to all these places for lifts, bus drops etc.. Having a car here is a major bonus. Possibility of driving our car if you have the right papers.
If this might feel like the right place for you, We would ask to zoom or skype with you asap to talk more…
We would consider a long-term placement for anyone who was seeking this as a lifestyle.

You'll learn as much as you want to expand and grow... we are a dynamic creative group with a lot to share.. but we love to learn from you too! This area has plenty to enjoy too.... the mountains hit the sea.. Malaga and Granada community not far... BUT you need to be a person that is independent. In your time off.. explore and build a life... or chill out here... Nature is literally on our doorstep!

your own room and shared bathroom - use of car and bike.. in the beautiful mountains. This village is super quiet and rural! But this house is full of life! We get a lot of visitors, fun and games...
We can welcome you from November (we think)
We ask for a zoom chat to really feel into each other. We are really keen for hard workers, mature thinkers, those that recognise when they project their emotions and when they own them.... and take ownership for their energy, people who see the big picture, creativity is the way, days off are off, days on are on! We ask for people to be really aware of their personal cleanliness and keeping rooms clean and fresh.
This will be such a brilliant experience for the right person and draining for the wrong one... your body will feel the answer if this is for you.
Lots of holiday time, weekends off, we are flexible and supportive
