    I could try to teach Spanish. This house would be ideal for somebody looking for a peacefull life, near the mountains. Not to fussy about accomodation, this is not a luxury villa,

    I wouldn t suggest to come here to somebody eagern to meet people, wanting to have intense social life

    , the nearest village is at 2 kms, the beach is at 19 kms,

  • Help


    This is a very old house and there´s always something to do like redecorating, painting, small construction projects, like changing windows,
    I have many animals I recovered from abandon or ill treatment, a helping hand to keep their places clean would be welcome too.

    As I said this house needs renovation, but still there´s plenty of rooms to choose in which one you ll feel more confortable,

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    There´s a bus that goes to Gandia at 10.19 a.m. and comes back at about 15.47 p.m.

    I prefer to host people who doesn´t smouk, and if they really need to do it, better by the window.
    I can only share my house and table with very open minded people.
    People with good sense of humor.
    If you are not able to do something or don´t want, I prefer that you speak openly, talk, talk, talk, avoids that little problems become big.
    I think I´m a honest person, and I always say the truth, and that is what I would expect from other people.
    I´m flexible with the helping time table, we can see what is best for both of us.
    I´d prefer to host a handy man for long term stay, but other options will be welcome.
