  • Description


    We are an English family with 4 children, cats, dogs and horses. We are on the south coast of Spain in a beautiful village called La Herradura, just 50 minutes from Malaga and Granada. The Sierra Nevada mountain range is under 1 hour 30 minutes drive and there are lots of walking trails, nature reserves nearby. We need some help in our day to day activities including 2 to 3 hours a day housework and some childcare. We are looking for an energetic person with a kind disposition who likes animals and is very helpful around the house. We would ideally like a female who speaks either English or Spanish fluently. There are many opportunities for sports and culture nearby, we have horses so horse riding is a regular activity for us. There are also language schools in the area. You will have sole use of a studio apartment with wifi, access to the family pool, walking distance from the beach. We are a busy family so need someone who is active, can think on their feet and be adaptable. Helping hours start at 15 hours per week and in exchange you have a studio flat with a separate kitchen and we will provide 1 meal a day Monday to Friday for this exchange. There is a possibility of more hours in exchange for complete board and/or a monetary exchange. At this moment in time it is difficult to know what hours of childcare is needed as it depends on how and if the schools reopen next month. We are looking for someone for a minimum of 6 weeks.
