  • Description


    I came to Spain from Wales quite a long time ago, have a lovely garden in a large plot of land which also has a variety of fruit trees, all of this needs a lot of attention not to mention maintaining the house itself.

    The finca is by the river and in a most beautiful area with fantastic walks from the door, 8kms in each direction to 3 lovely villages. Or walking over the mountain to Guaro not so long in Kms but needs energy!
    My first time to ask for help was Spring 2015, since then I have enjoyed various helpers who have all been wonderful workers and companions

    I and my 5 dogs are enjoyed the experience and friendships enormously.( now only 3 dogs 2019)
    As it gets seriously hot here my next request for help would be from mid October to March/April. This is for general repair work, painting and gardening. Including strimming and logging as a knowledge of machinery would be useful,
    Also any Apple geniuses would be welcome.
    I prefer to take couples and also with a car as transport is extremely limited.

    What else ...

    Coin sits on the northern foot of the Sierra de Mijas, inland Málaga, overlooking the spectacular Guadalhorce valley, one of the most fertile areas in southern Spain, where the beautiful landscape is covered in orchards and farmland and affords beautiful mountain views.

    The town itself has grown in popularity and has become a destination for foreign residents, wanting to live in a more authentic Andalucian environment. The town offers good shopping, dining and leisure facilities and is located just 20 minutes drive from the coastal town of Marbella.

    Coin offers an escape from the typical Costa del Sol seaside resort and is a good jump off point to see other areas of inland Andalusia.

    I can pick you up at the bus stop in Coin, 15 minutes from the Finca,
    (buses from Malaga, Marbella and Fuengerola to Coin approx. every hour))
