We are a passionate Dutch couple living for over 10 years at the Costa Blanca in Spain. Recently we have opened a business in the old town of Altea and we are looking for help with everything surrounding that. We would like to have some help around to take the pressure off. In exchange, we can offer a great experience, a nice place to live and loads of sun!
We live in a nice Spanish villa with a swimming pool. We love animals, have three dogs and two cats. Some help in the house and with the animals would be appreciated, but mostly we would love someone with a music background to perform in the bar.
In the area there is a big international community to socialize with. Besides the work we go out a lot, organise parties and events and host a lot of live music. We are very passionate about music and try to be a stage for musicians in the area.
DIY and building projects
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help around the house
There is a huge international community in the Costa Blanca, but besides that, you get a taste of the real Spanish life. You can work on your Spanish language skills, as well as expand your musical career.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We opened a bar in the centre of Altea. It is now mostly for drinks and live music, but we are expanding to a bigger wine and dining experience. A tea house and wine tasting area during the day, a music club during the nights. We need help with the expansion. To help construct the new areas and to open up the roof terrace. We also really want to welcome people with a music background that want to play, sing and perform at nights in the bar. We are looking for hands-on people that like to host open-mic nights and jamsessions. This to make sure there is always live music around and to invite other musicians in. If you are passionate about music and very social this is the place to be!
The bar is a few kilometers away from the house, a driver´s license would be helpful, but you can easily get there by bike as well. We can provide a bicycle to get around in the area. Apart from spending time in the bar, the work can involve some housekeeping at the house, grocery shopping, gardening, taking care of the pets and some maintenance of the pool. Mostly light and easy help that we can do together as family. We just really like to have some people around to make all the work fun and light.
We are looking for a couple or solo Workawayers. Speaking English is neccesary, Spanish is very useful and all other languages can be a benefit. We can host two people in our guesthouse.
The house is in a beautiful and more quiet area between orange fields, with an ocean view. The accommodation is a guest house next to the main house overlooking the pool with private kitchen and ensuite bathroom. Good WiFi connection.
On your time off, take the time to go hiking, cycling or drive around the area. The sea is nearby, as well as the mountains, so there is something for everyone. Great cities like Valencia and Alicante are definately worth a visit as well. Local buses can get you there.
