We are a middle aged couple with 2 dogs, living in a cave house in rural Spain. The area we live in is in mainland Spain and very rural. We live approximately 5 minutes drive from a small beautiful very Spanish town, which has several bars, restaurants and a few shops. We bought our cave 10 years ago, and we have been living here for 5 years. It is an on going project, as the cave was in need of modernisation and reforming. Caves are eco friendly, they are cool in the summer and warm in the winter, so it is an ideal place to spend the summer. We are surrounded by national park, mountains and forests which provide stunning scenery.
You will have the experience of living in a cave in rural Spain. To experience the Spanish language and culture of the surrounding area. To experience the English culture and practise language skills through living with English natives!!
We require general building and maintenance help with our cave house project. General building experience eg brick/block laying, plastering tiling and decorating would be an advantage. The ability to work in hot and sunny conditions is a necessity
