    Description

    Finnish couple, around 50's, in Spanish country side starting a dream life in a dream place. Word starting tells a little bit about the situation. Place needs fruit and flower garden, dog kennels, some structural changes in the garden with rustic style using stones and wood. Colors and latino beat is close to our heart. Views are magnificent, olive and almond trees, hills after another, white village and beautiful sunset. Close to the village Almogia, about 20 km from Malaga airport.
    We speak Finnish and English and want to learn Spanish. We have active dogs, cat and soon chickens. We love spicy food, we eat meat, we drink alcohol, we do not smoke, we do sports, we have grown up children and grand children. They live in Finland. We have always been hard working and now starting hopefully more relaxing life in Spain.

    Planning and building garden and plant plants/trees, installing irrigation system, build dog kennels and play area for dogs, build rustic style outdoor stairs in the garden from one level to another using stones, wood and concrete. We love small DIY projects to spice up places, so any imaginative fun is allowed especially if it is useful.
    Special need is for person who can build with bricks and wood. We have limited tools at the moment. Person who knows what and how much to purchase from hardware store, would be important.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    There is bus route from Almogia to Malaga. Plenty of beautiful hiking routes and maps. Lovely village just 1,5 km away from the house. We do respect peoples free time, but when we work we expect you work too. We start rather early than late. We think life is too precious to be wasted being serious. When you make your best at the first time, you will have more time to enjoy things you like. We love to adventure new places, learn new things and get to know new people. We will gladly get to know our helpers and spend time with them or let them be if they wish. We are not religious. Helpers are allowed to be, but we expect them to respect our beliefs as much as we do theirs. We do not smoke and smoking is not allowed inside the house. We drink alcohol and it is not forbidden from helpers either. First work then fun and lets not forget some physical training. There is always time to do some exercise.

    We have space for vehicles but we do not know what other things it needs. Electricity yes, but anything else? We still think we can manage it some how.
