We are a family of five, setting up a training and survival camp for children and adults for the local area... a sports project. My husband has achieved the majority of his goals single handed or with help from friends, there is always something to do here, as our finca is enormous. I would like help in finishing things around the house that he has been unable to do and I know there is also a lot of things he still needs doing on the project, as its on-going... probably a life-time worth of jobs... but for now we would just like help in aspects such as basic, construction, tiling, decorating, painting, landscaping,
We live in an olive grove set within a forest. it seems like we live in the middle of nowhere but it's actually only 5 minute drive to the local town, 25 minute walk.. or a Bus route close by. Own vehicle would be a plus but not a necessity. Now, is still a perfect season in which to walk or take one of our bikes, before it gets too hot... however we also have transport.
You'll see what we mean when you get here, its simply beautiful!
We have many animals that are free-range, goats, chickens,ducks, dogs and a cat!
We love it here, its very simple living, but I think we have all got too caught up in all the technology around us.
Theres so much to say but i guess its just a point of us meeting each other and seeing how you can help us!

At the moment we can only offer a Trailer tent or large tent with basic shower and toilet facility which in the future should improve to a room.. but theres another project!
We are open to people coming with their own caravan or camper-van and vehicle but would be a plus but not a necessity.
Perfect setting for anyone interested in outdoor activities, biking, hiking, running in the forest.. we are set in a very popular "sierra" and through the hills you can access the coast.. Mijas, Fuengirola etc.. skiing within an hour an a half, away in Granada, 30 mins from the beach and major city. Easily accessible for major tourist and sight-seeing towns.
