We have a small Almond & Olive Farm in the mountains of Andalusia close to the historic town of Vélez Rubio . We grown our own vegetables & have chicken, we also have 4 dogs so essential you are ok with them. Our home is a mixture of old and 1970’s and requires general maintenance and we need assistance with that and other projects. We do have a pool.
The life here is really lovely peaceful & relaxing with beautiful scenery.
Our house was renovated about 15 years ago and could now do with some TLC like some redecoration and repairs , there are also some projects that we would like to develop and some building / maintenance skills would be useful. We need help with painting windows & doors, also rejas (window/door bars). Pruning our Almond & olive trees. We will need help later beginning of September to pick our almonds then end of November early December to pick our olives. We also need help painting the inside of our house.
We are happy to feed you with home cooked meals & have bedrooms within the main house. We can’t supply a photo of the bedrooms as we are just finishing off some repair works but there is a private bathroom.
We are about 1.1/2 kilometres from the main town of Vélez Rubio with a smaller village about 8km away which has an historic castle in Vélez Blanco. There is also the national park at Maria which is about 15km away with lots of different walks. We are about an hour away from beaches at Mojacar & Aguilas.
