  • Description


    I am Eliza and live with my lovely dog Maisie and a special cat Poki in a very colorful house with a communal pool and gardens in southern spain. The house is about 200 year old and was once a old rice mill. The Village is a typical Andaluz village, with little supermarkets, shops and bars. 10 minutes by car from Sotogrande and beautiful beaches.
    I'm looking for someone who can speak fluent spanish and can teach me the language while dinner at the evenings. A animal lover who can take care of my pets when I'm away overnight. I also need help with social media, computer and light help around the house, for a minimum stay of 2 month and someone who wants to become a part of the family.

    I want to learn Spanish, so a spanish speaker is essential.
