  • Description


    We are a young middle aged couple who have retired to the Spanish way of living. Our prime interests are motor sports, animals and nature. We love pottering on the land , 10 wild and untamed acres, with a view to promoting self sufficiency and organic produce as far as is possible. We love travelling and meeting people from all walks of life.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We live just outside a beautiful Spanish white washed mountain village with lots of cultural interest including a castle and museums, steeped in Spanish tradition. Lots of the old farming ways are still in use such as goat and sheep walking and irrigation by channels by hand.

  • Help


    We have a 400 year old cortijo in the countryside which has been restored and now we are looking for help to restore the dry stone wall terracing on the land between the olives. We are hoping to install some solar also and need to build a small housing for this. Ultimately we have an old distillery building which needs complete renovation as it is now just bare foundations with a view to distilling our own local Aqua Dente on an eco basis. There are no building skills required, just good old fashioned muscle and common sense! We have a small tractor for some of the heavier work, cement mixer and all the basic tools necessary for the work.
