    Good Host
  • Description


    We are a married couple no children and we run a guest cottage as well as our own house. I am also a reflexologist/foot health practitioner and my husband is an artist. We have 1 dog, 1 cat and and a garden, swimming pool and vege plot. We like having helpers staying with us as we can give the opportunity to other people to learn how to plant and create a veg garden and learn about gardening in general with mediterranean plants and trees as well as swimming pool maintenance. We are living in the countryside close to the rural spanish town of Orgiva. Ainsley was a professional chef and cooks vegetarian and vegan food to a high standard with the ingredients out of the garden or locally produced.

    We are looking for people who can help maintain the gardens and do some decorating in the houses where needed. Our vege plot is always needing tlc and planting of new veg. We are a good place to start out as a novice gardener. We ask the helpers to help 4 to 5 hours a day, 5 days a week and we provide accommodation, internet access and meals.

    There is plenty to do in the local area ranging from the local market on a Thursday or taking the bus up to the villages or into Granada. Hot springs also not too far and plenty of walking. There is a huge population of non spanish here and so lots of people to get to know from all different cultures and there is always something happening, whether it going to the local rastro on a Sunday or listening to live music or playing sports like padel.
