I am living on a hill above the village of Estepona, 3km from Estepona center and 1km from the closest beach. My house has 3 floors, on the lower one my daughter lives with her husband and 8month baby, the middle one is common space (kitchen, living room, 2bathrooms and your room), the upper level is my private space.
We live with 6 large dogs and a cat, also we have 2fields around the house with 11 horses including a mule. They all need to be fed everyday and taken care of, some fencing job sometimes, general maintenance of the house and fields. The cooking is shared between me and the volunteer(s), following the mood of the moment. I work at office all day, so you are by your own, managing your time and tasks as you wish as long as you do your daily 6hours on weekdays.
In here we speak Spanish, English and german.
You have to know here in Andalusia the climate can be rude in summer and the fields can be little bit tough for some, so it is preferable if you are strong or used to this. Also do not expect luxury here, just simple life but with more than needed.
We are looking ONLY for long term staying, minimum of 4 weeks. The reason is it takes time to adapt yourself to the environment and make a connection with the dogs or horses in here, so an independent and interesting job for you needs a minimum of 4 weeks.
