  • Description


    Hi we are Christian couple 54, 67 new to Spain - 16 months, we have a large garden area and my husband is trying to keep on top of it but is struggling a little with arthititus. We have a wall that needs rebuilding which we are more than happy to do this together. Just a few hrs a day will be such a blessing then the rest of the time is yours. Of course we will feed you hahaha All this is very new to us as well.

    Wish list: We have been so blessed already:
    Building up a dry stone wall. (David our first experience of WA. supporting us with this so maybe all completed) blessed indeed.
    General basic gardening. (Ongoing: Dan helped with this as well as vital piping around the house it was great to hot water in the kitchen)
    Painting pool area (Marco has helped us to complete this, and painting around the house which now looks bright and clean)
    Mini mural on a wall.

    We have a car and happy to show you around local town which is 4k away. If you want to come to church more than happy as well, there will be no preasure at all from us. Our home is your home. Please be aware that if your not great on your own ( I'm not great on my own, so i can say this) it can be pretty lonely, esp. If your young and hanging out with a 54 and 67 might not be what your looking for. Saying this we have had workaways from 20-30 plus and are very adaptable.
