  • Description


    Hi we're John and Gill who have been living the dream since December 2016 in the beautiful mountainous region of Andalusia in Southern Spain. We live with our four dogs, Alfie a 13 year old Jack Russell, Charlie Brown who's a beautiful little rusty coloured long haired rescue dog, and our inseparable mother and daughter Spanish podencos who we also rescued.
    Our beautiful home is an old renovated finca with a lovely relaxing terrace which is situated between the stunning views of mount Maroma (tallest mountain in the province of Malaga) and the mediterranean sea. We are 6 kms from the town of Velez Malaga and 10 kms from the popular coastal resort of Torre del Mar.
    The famous buddhist retreat, Karma Guen is a 5 minute walk away and the Stupa with its 360 degree views is a 5 min drive away. Our house lies within 10,000 sq mtrs of terraced land with almond trees, figs, mangos, oranges and avocados. It also has a casita which consists of a double bed with a modern shower room, wash basin and toilet. We also have a deposito/pool.
    Couples preferred with some knowledge of diy or common sense.
    We don't provide transport but you're more than welcome to have a lift when we need to go shopping etc. normally every couple of days.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We believe that they would benefit from the whole experience of living in the campo of Andalusia. If English is a second language they would also improve their vocabulary and grammar. In addition, back in the UK John was a very experienced cookery teacher and head chef and would be happy to pass on some of his knowledge if cooking is a passion of theirs.
    Overall we believe it could be an amazing experience.

    Small but perfectly formed casita down on the land which commands beautiful views over the mountains. Tiled bathroom with excellent hot/cold water shower facilities, toilet and sink. Tea/coffee making facilities. Suitable for couples, friends or individuals. Meals supplied up at the Finca.
    Our new friends are expected to keep the house they stay in clean and leave it as they found it when their stay finishes.
    There is a double bed in the casita. We have a water deposito/pool.
