  • Description

    Description

    Hi my partner Andy and I (Amanda) live in a beautiful valley in the Alpujarras with our 3 horses, 5 dogs and 3 cats.
    We grow a lot of our vegetables and have many fruit trees such as orange, Almond, Cherry, plum.
    Andy is a writer and researcher and I train horses and help others with horses.
    Our home is quite old and rustic though comfortable and off grid.
    We enjoy having helpers and love to hear their stories and hope they have some good ones to tell others about their experience with us.
    We like to make others feel welcome and happy to share our knowledge and experience of life.
