    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We live near a very interesting village with a lot of alternative things happening, yoga classes, spiritual groups, and much more. Granada is an hour by bus, the beach about the same. The area is very beautiful with possibilities for walking etc. We can give plenty of advice about places to visit.

  • Help


    Approx 20 hours work per week, plus we have a lively affectionate dog who needs to be taken for walks. We are also looking for a permanent person or couple who want to live in Spain,and take care of the garden and help out. we need help now. A driving licence is needed, though our car insurance only covers people over 25. We need general help with running a house and garden, because we have health problems at the moment, and can´t get around so easily as we used too. It is important that you like to look after plants

    We supply money for guests so they can cook for themselves.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    There are buses from the village to different destinations. We have been having volunteers for many years. Usually we agree to a week or fortnight trial period, to see if we get on, and then we like people to stay as long as possible once they are settled. It is surprising how many people come to us or other hosts for a few weeks, and move on to do their own thing, but never leave the area.
