We're not just an ordinary couple, beside our difference in age,we both have different qualities, but perhaps that's why we're a good team.
We both love and enjoy the place we could afford us eight years ago and since than we have even almost stopped travelling. We´ve been working to make our cortijo and surrounding nicer. It's for the first time we like more staying here in our home than whereever in the world.
Matys 79 years young, likes to read, puzzle, paint, and tries to learn Spanish. Gertrude 57 years old, likes reading, cooking, gardening and more. Unfortunately we don't have the strength anymore to finish the projects we started.We need someone strong and handy who likes to work outside, so he can help us finishing it, as build a stonewall and a new rooftop. Also we would like to have someone who has experience with stuff as tiling and painting to come to help us inside the house..

We found out about this site and had some workaways last few years.They were wonderful and helped us with a lot of work. We would like to have a handy man, who has experience with bricklaying and physically stronger than we are, in compensation you'll have your own bedroom with an original swedish hastens bed to '' recover '', sharing the rest off the house , our 6000 m2 surroundings and our pure love. We don't want smokers and we don't want animals, because we're allergic.
