  • Description

    Description

    We are a Ricardo and Anton, a Dutch couple living together with our small, very friendly doggie Chico and cat Brisa.Ricardo (55) among others, travelled 10 years around the world mainly as a tour guide, but also lived in Bali en Thailand and had art gallery in Mallorca Spain. After a period of working as a manager in elderly care he now a days works as a massage therapist / energetic bodyworker and practice different styles like Hawaiian shamanistic bodywork Lomi Lomi wich he also teaches. Anton (60) had various managing (board) jobs in catering & tourism, business services and Human Resource at the Dutch local government of Rotterdam. We both have a broad cultural and social interest.

    The house we found is exactly on the crossroad of three Spanish provinces ( Granada/Jaen/Cordoba) in a rolling green and lush environment. A place with Spanish beauty we also like to share with friends and travellers. The house is in good condition, with all amenities, mostly renovated by now, The land wich has to become a garden (1500m2), contains big almond, fig and olive trees and beside those many small fruittrees, is situated on a gently sloping hill and is transformed into, what we think is a little paradise.

    The duration of stay is for the time needed to complete the job starting from one week and if both parties agree after evaluation, a longer periode of staying is an option. Just lets us know your travel plans and dates.

    Please realise our house is situated rural, so in the Campo, and is therefore quite distant from nearest towns (15 / 20 min driving by car) In winter the evenings and nights can be quit cold because of the altitude ( 1000 mtr)

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    In exchange for the performance of help we offer all inclusive lodging at our house with decent fresh and healthy meals and drinks. You will get your own mobile home to sleep and you can use all the facillities of the house, like a bathroom, kitchen etc.

    The house is situated in a beautiful, tranquil environment.

    If you don't have your own transport, we will pick you up upon arrival and drop off on departure at the bus station at Alcala la Real. If you like to go out for sight seeing, Anton can occasionally drop you of and pick you up at one of the nearby towns, where there are also buses to Granada, Cordoba and Malaga.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    The house is situated 16 kilometers from the charming towns Alcala la Real, Priego de Cordoba and Monte Frio, wich has some of the best examples of the Spanish Baroque, provided with nice bars and restaurants. All approximately 20 minutes driving by car. Within 45 minutes the center of Granada town can be reached with its famous Alhambra. Even the snow caps of the Sierra Nevada can been seen on the way to our house and driving up there takes about 1 ½ hour.

    The area is bordered with the naural parque Sierre Subbetica wich takes about 15 minutes by car. The house has an amazing view and sees for example at forrest of the protected Pyrenean Oak and ofcourse beautiful olive groves. Because of the sloping surrounding going around at bicycle is a wonderfull ( but strenuous) way to explore the area with its specific Andalusian hospitality. The beaches are about 1 ½ hour driving.

    Leisure opportunities after work: hiking, biking or climbing, horseback riding, explore the local culture with many interesting Moorish influences, or just laze and relax in the plentiful Spanish sunshine. Our house is situated in the Campo, 20 min driving from nearestby towns. If you want to make (city)trips, we advise you to travel by bus, blabla car or rent a car. We occasionally can drop you off and pick you up at the bus station in Alacala la Real.
