Couple Greg & Ellie recently moved from South England to take on an orchard and farm house in the heart of the Valencia region. Our finca has been recently renovated and we now at the stage of decorating the ground floor. Bedrooms and bathrooms all done!
We are 2 km from the nearest railway station. Valencia 40 minutes and very easy via the train. It's a short drive to the mountain area with some testing walks and great views. There and plenty of beaches within a 30 minute drive and many places of interest nearby. We have a couple of bikes and it's very quick to get into the local town for bars and shops.
This is a normal 'Workaway' opportunity exchanging up to 25 hours per week for full use of the accommodation, pool, food and drink.
If it is not too hot, there is some work outside such as weeding, pruning, mulching and some painting of walls. Inside we have plenty of repair jobs, decorating, furnishing, cleaning etc. Big priority for us is improving our Spanish. It is important for us that you enjoy your stay with us, so we are very flexible with the projects and hours worked.
Workawayers do not need any specific skills but must be fit, healthy and willing to learn new things. We do expect good hygiene and tidiness and rest assured that all work must be safe with protective equipment as necessary. We like people who are relaxed and have an open-minded attitude. However, for general health reasons we do not accept smokers or drug users.
