  • Description


    Myself and my partner have two boys, 14 and 8 years old. We live in the beautiful Andalusian countryside, 30 mins from Malaga city. We are surrounded by lovely mountains, great nature walks, lots of outdoor activities and a gorgeous pool. Our Finca is located in the heart of the countryside, in a peaceful location, but conveniently close to Pizarra and Alora, two typical Andalusian towns. There is a direct train from our village into Malaga, that also connects to the airport and the beach. We are located in the Gualdahorce valley, which is a gorgeous fertile agricultural area, mostly producing ecological citric fruit. We have spent the last 6 years renovating our house and property, building a small eco tourism business. We work the land completely organically, Eros also makes micro organisms to enrich the soil. We have a lovely vegetable garden and an interesting variety of other plants,from super foods like Moringa to our latest project which is growing and selling plants to help with erosion.

  • Help


    There is always a variety of help that we love having at our property, like help with the vegetable garden and land generally,DIY and general maintanance and help in the house. Right now we are especially looking for people who could help teaching our two boys 14 and 8 year olds. we have decided to home school them for the moment because of the present situation and regulations in schools with regard to Coronavirus, so we are looking for someone who can tutor them in maths, English reading and writing and or Spanish reading and writing. We very much want their learning to be inspired and practical, so would love to do project based learning with them, incorporating maths, writing, etc into projects. It would also be great to teach them how to use computers as a tool, not just for gaming ha ha! And any fun games, sports and creative activities too!
    Our property Los Almeces is a truly beautiful place to come and enjoy in nature. We love cooking, especially Eros the Italian, many of our meals are prepared using ingredients from our land and or local organic produce. we also have two dogs, a cat and 10 chickens.
    Looking forward to hearing from you!
    All the best, Silvia
