  • Description


    We are a middle aged Italian/English couple who have bought a house which has now been partially rennovated. We are looking to become self sustaining and off grid. Inland Alicante region.

    The home is detached in a very peaceful location. Sitting on its own plot of land. 4km from local town with bars and shops.

    Workaways will have their own bedroom. Shared bathroom.

    The property is located on the edge of a national park which is great for hiking and exploring.
