    Description

    We are a married couple. I am Englsh my husband German. We mainly look after our olive trees but the garden /farm takes a lot of our time, We both are into music and art and have just joined a writing group too. The land is exquistely beautiful but time consuming so we would like help so we can persue our other interests. We have a lovely swimming pool which may be used when ever, We swam at 3am in the morning the other day, it was lovely and warm once in, We have art workshops here once a month. We have 1 very friendly 4 year old German shepherd dog. one whippet and one rescue mongrel dog. We have 5 cats, 3 Maine coons. We have 3 chickens so also fresh eggs.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    They would live in a lovely little Spanish town which is full of traditions. Could learn Spanish but it is right to say that there are 70 plus languages registered at the local school. Origva is a vibrant town as as much as the Spanish keep their traditions the immigrants here have a strong community offering all sorts of past times from Yoga and kick boxing to rebirthing singing opera to blues, In fact just about every past time is available here.

    We have a small non professional farm, Just under one hectares which is a lot of work for us. We would like helpers to: help with gardening. keeping the swimming pool clean and one maybe to cook for us sometimes. We have olive trees, almond trees. grapes, lemon trees, apricot tree, apple tree, pear tree, mulberry trees. orange and mandarines trees.( relatively young_ plum, kaki nisperas avocado trees and probably more. We need weeding, grass cutting. strimming, In exchange we would provide a small cortijo so the helper has some privacy but could share some meal times and cooking, Helpers are welcome to use the pool. We are 10 minutes walk away for the centre of this lovely little town Orgiva. We have dogs and cats and chickens and fresh eggs.
