    Description

    Hello all.

    We are a family of 4 (2 children aged 7 and 3) and have a small old dog of 10. We come from the Netherlands and have been living in Spain for a year.

    We will move to Lecrín at the beginning of November and will live there off-grid. The cortijo is located in the famous Sierra Nevada park, 45 minutes away you can ski and close to the house is a well-known hiking trail.

    We are looking for lovely people (only a family or a sweet couple or dear friends) who want to help us with planting a vegetable garden, permaculture, creating a playground for the children and a small piece of abyss that needs to be fenced off.
    Also we think it is very important that our children also receive attention and that they are treated with love.

    We have an upstairs apartment with private entrance, kitchen, 2 bedrooms and private bathrooms.

    We ask for help 4/5 hours a day in exchange for accommodation in the apartment and meal.
    We are always looking for people who want to help us for a week. In case of a mutually very good click/match, we can extend by one week. Not longer than 2 weeks. Then we want some privacy with our own family. Perhaps returning at another time is negotiable.
    We are not vegetarian and eat versatile. We love to cook on our kamado (barbecue).
    For vegetarians we could make the meat/fish separately for ourselves. We cannot provide this for vegans, sorry.

    For more information you can always contact me.

    Kind regards from a Dutch family.

    Hidden gems can still be found here and there in this beautiful valley.
    Incredibly beautiful location in the Sierra Nevada Natural Park with 360 degree views. You can even see the Mediterranean!

    The farm, which used to belong to a Buddhist community, is now used by our friends as a beautiful country house after a major renovation.
    This farmhouse is located on its own land of no less than 100,000 m2.
    Throughout the year it is a mosaic of colors due to the diversity of plants and trees, including 200 almond trees and 60 centuries-old olive trees.
