    Description

    I'm living in a big country house in the mountains at 1500 mts high, far away from the next village OHANES 10 kms, with 3 dogs, 2 ponies, one horse and a cat...I need help because my children are living in Almeria town and working full time , and also they dont like so much working the weekends in the cortijo!
    Plenty of work outside in the vegetables ecologic garden in summer and also woodshed required......stoneswalls...
    need somebody to train one of my ponies...
    i am an obsess recycling person and DIY.
    Love originality and artist people also enjoying good clasic music...or jazz...or guitar etc .
    I am a seventy eight years old healthy french woman, still doing every morning yoga, and walk but with arthrose problems..sometimes hard to live in this big country house alone with so much things to do. I cannot carry weight anymore.
    My place is beautiful, I am in the National Park of Sierra Nevada at 1500mts high, a paradise with views of the sea of the famous Natural Park of Cabo de Gata near Almeria, at one hour and a half drive.
    I want to interchange my way of life in nature, good air, silence, ideal for a health recuperation, all is ecological, solar panels, chymnies and only wood in winter, a small vegetable garden and great for trekking.
    My ponies and horse and in general all animals are my folies and loved one, but i like to share all what i have the chance to have and learn every day a little more with nice friendship and company also together giving me an hand i need here everyday.
    Thank you in advance and welcome.
