  • Description



    I am an elderly women, living in Mallorca since 16 years. My niece (also pensioner) came recently to Mallorca and we are busy to organize our new life together. Focussed on this, we need some helping hand for cooking, gardening, animal care (one dog, four cats and some hen), cleaning , building and reparing works, general maintenance, also shopping (by car) . The help we need is composed of many small everyday things that we do not deal alone easily for time and health reasons, or when we are busy with other thing.
    We are living very close to nature on a farm near the village of 3000 sqm + 20,000 sqm vacant land around us, there are no immediate neighbors. I keep a few chickens and have dogs and cats.

    You should be a open minded, responsible, flexible, mature, self reliant, easy going and humorous person and love to live simple and very near to nature.
    in addition to free accommodation I offer to benefit from my knowledge of medical herbs and participate in a painting class as well as spanish classes.
    I prefer female workawayers, who stay at least for 4 weeks and who have not only driver lisence but also driving experience..

    Ich bin eine ältere Frau und lebe mit meiner ebenfalls älteren Nichte naturnah und sehr einfach in Dorfnähe auf einer Finca von 3000 qm + 20.000 qm freies Land um uns, es gibt keine unmittelbaren Nachbarn. Ich betreibe keinen wesentlichen Anbau mehr, halte ein paar Hühner und habe Hund und Katzen. Die Hilfe, die wir benötigen besteht aus vielen kleinen Alltagsdingen, die wir aus zeitlichen und gesundheitlichen Gründen nicht mehr alleine bewältigen können.
    So brauchen wir Mithilfe beim Kochen, bei Gartenarbeit, Besorgungen, Putzen, Tiere versorgen...
    Ich wünsche mir eine selbständige Frau mit Lebenserfahrung, Humor, Verantwortungsgefühl, Liebe zur Natur, Flexibilität und Freude am einfachen Leben, die auch offen und respektvoll kommunizieren kann.
    Neben mietfreiem Wohnen biete ich zusätzlich an, von meinem Wissen über Heilkräuter zu profitieren und an einem Malkurs teilzunehmen und spanisch zu lernen.
    Ich nehme bevorzugt weibliche Workawayer, die mindestens für 4 Wochen kommen. Wichtig ist mir auch nicht nur ein Führerschein, sondern auch die Bereitschaft und Erfahrung Auto zu fahren.
