  • Description

    Description

    We need helpers to maintain our sacred creative space on a little plot of land, which has stunning views of the highest mountains in Spain. We do much of the work, but we need help to finish. We also need help with general countryside maintenance of olives, almonds; pruning, harvesting, stone wall building and gardening.

    We have already built a micro-shelter/tree-house which is great for sleeping in, its a fluid structure, which means it hardly moves, even in a hurricane. We just completed a solar powered, wood-fired jacuzzi which is a great perk for visitors :o)

    We have completed an outdoor shower with the help of workawayers, and need help building a tree-house. Our nearest main pueblo is 10 kilometres away, a 2 hour walk, or a 10 mins drive. All our drinking water, and general water is collected by hand and we have a tank that we fill manually as we have no mains water here. Our electricity is provided by the sun, so we have limited power according to the weather.

    We especially welcome anyone in the LGBTQ community and people of colour who want to workaway in a non-judgemental and relaxed atmosphere.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    In the ancient pueblos here, people live much as they did 2000 years ago. Famous artists and writers have always retreated here to fire their creativity, and adventurers to climb Mulhaćen, the highest peak in mainland Spain. Moorish and Roman history is everywhere, and the peace and quiet is a stark contrast to modern life.

    What else ...

    We are an hour from Granada, city of Tapas! Also the home of the Alhambra palace, wonder of the world. Mountain climbing, hiking, skiing and beach sports are all possible, or just sunbathe in our 300+ days of sun a year. Own vehicle preferable, but not essential as there is an infrequent bus service. We are always more than happy to take our visitors out to the local pueblos where they can relax or have a drink etc
