  • Help


    We are a German / Spanish couple. We are 57 and 60 years old. Of mind, we are very young but the 2 have problems with the backyard. Our house in the countryside is very nice and garden is not very big (1000m2) but some work cost us. We need help with pruning the plants, maintaining the garden and the pool and our small ecological vegetable garden, chopping firewood and maintaining the house.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We have lived in the countryside for 11 years and love it. The next town / small town is 2 km away. There are supermarkets, bars, market, restaurants and metro station to go to valencia.
    We have a very home life because we really like our house. We have many friends who are always welcome to spend the weekend, make a paella or stay longer. And we have hosted and received people from all over the world and from all ages.
    Sometimes we also go to valencia for a concert, stay with friends or have a drink.
    We have never had volunteers yet but we would love to experience it.
