  • Description


    We are a family living in the countryside, in the center of Spain, in the south side of Sierra de Gredos, 200 km west of Madrid. We have three kids aged 18, 17 and 13. We run a horse farm within a beautiful landscape, 10 km away from the nearest small village (2.000 people). We have 6 horses, 10 dogs. and some hens. We need somebody to help with kids and animals, someone who could help us in all aspects, becoming a family member.
