  • Description


    Our home is in an olive grove in the Gredos mountains 135km from Madrid (towards portugal). We have two daughters.
    I am English and speak fluent Spanish and my partner is Spanish and also speaks English, German, Portugese.
    We always need help on the land and around the house - maintenance and DIY as well as gardening and landscaping. We appreciate people who are looking for cultural exchange, who enjoy family life, interaction with children but at the same time are independent and adventurous.
