    Description

    Hi, my name is Anton I'm a single gay man living together with my very friendly doggie Chico.
    Some years ago I've had various boardmanaging jobs in catering & tourism, business services as a reorganisation & crisismanager and also Human Resourcemanager at the Dutch local government of Rotterdam. In 2003 I decided to start a new live and moved to Spain into the beautiful region of Andalucia, I have a broad cultural and social interest.

    The house is exactly on the crossroad of three Spanish provinces ( Granada/Jaen/Cordoba) in a rolling green and lush environment at 1000 mtr altitude. 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 around the house was tranformed into a real nice garden (1500m2), contains a nice sized pool, big almond, fig and olive trees and beside those many small fruittrees, is situated on a gently sloping hill and is transformed into, what i think is a little paradise.
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Handy person(s) needed: from Friday 20th till the 27th of May.

    Minor repairs must be carried out as well as outdoor painting.
    Also the house and garden needs to be reorganised cleaned very properly!

    Own transportation is handy, but not required.
    I can pick you up at the bussstation at Alcala la Real (20 min driving)

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I have a broad interest in various people, cultures and love to exchange cultural experiences. I love to spend evenings together with you, with interesting conversations, nice and healty food accompanied with a cold beer or a good glass of wine. But also if you want some privacy after work, thats possible.

    Help

    Requiered skills with the tasks mentioned above and a lot of enthusiasm.

    General houskeeping is also one of the daily jobs, beside and ousite the 5 hours. While we are living together, it means houskeeping together as well. :-)

    Feel free to ask any questions ..... Skype talks upfront are also great.

    I prefer to meet people with respectful, open, creative and preferably humorous mind, responsible and independent. We ask you to help out 5 hours for 5 days a week.

    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 my 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 I offer all inclusive lodging at our house with decent fresh and healthy meals and drinks. You will get your own bedroom and (shared) bathroom and you can use all the facillities of the house.

    The house is situated in a beautiful, tranquil environment appr. 20 min driving to several villages.

    If you don't have your own transport, I 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, I 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.
