    Description

    Together with my family, we bought this cortijo 26 years ago, to return to the land, grow and eat organic veg. etc. Now my small half Spanish grandchildren visit me on a regular basis, but I dont get much help anymore to keep the place running, and Im not as young as I was! I still love it here and mostly try to work with nature to maintain a beautiful place. It is terraced land, very wooded with lots of different fruit trees as well as olive and almonds, which need picking. It has an alberca, a natural water store which doubles as a swimming pool, fish pond etc.

    There is fruit to pick, bank sides to clean, and there is always maintenance, plumbing and carpentry skills are especially welcome! pruning trees, chopping logs etc. Most of the work is hard and physical so am looking for helpers who can do this and use manual tools like a mattock , axe or sickle.

    Accommodation

    There is a hostel for backpackers in the old part of the house-but I do not need help to run it as there are only 5 beds!
    I usually cook the meals and cook both vegetarian and meat, but you can also self cater, food supplied.

    What else ...

    I am a feng shui practitioner, and am willing to teach some of my skills, especially how to dowse for geopathic stress.
    I am very much a nature lover, and work with the nature spirits of my land and try to make my footprint as light as possible. I see planet earth as a living being to be enjoyed, but cared for and protected and I see myself as caretaker here for my lifetime.
