I am semi-retired and have two properties in Spain. My main residence is a house in a small village outside Granada (where I live alone) and I also have an apartment in Torremolinos on the Costa del Sol. My family is in the UK and I visit them at least 6 times a year. I also like to travel when I am not working or do not need to be at home. At the moment I am specifically looking for someone who will help with clearing a piece of land next to my house which I have recently purchased. From time to time you may have to stay on your own, if I am away from home. The deal will be accommodation only and you would have to provide your own food if I am not there but I will provide food if I am. I think this would suit someone who wants to improve their Spanish and stay in one place rather than travelling around a lot so I would prefer longer stays but would consider shorter ones too.
My land, which has about 30 citrus trees but which have been neglected for over 20 years, needs some clearing, pruning, digging and planting etc.
I also need help sorting out the interior of my house following building work joining the garden to the house.

I require help with some chores which are easier or faster done by two people rather than one. Sometimes I have to be away from Spain and need someone to water my plants, do some decorating/maintenance/repair work.
