  • Description


    I am young at heart. 73 year old. Ex London Fire Officer with a two bedroomed casita /small house/ in the old town of Marbella, Spain, Which I share with my newly rescued kitten. I have a very active lifestyle centred around my horses that are stabled 30 min away. My close friends are mainly English,Spanish, and Germans. Being in the Old Town I am surrounded by Spanish culture. Great place to practice/ learn Spanish. Turn right from front door typically Spanish , with cheap bars filled with locals.Turn left from my front door is a lot more for the tourist. Narrow streets decked out with massive amounts of flowers and plants. Its MARBELLA>.Your own room and all food will be supplied. JUST ONE really important point you must be able to resist the draw of the the Marbella night life before working days.

    You will be surrounded by true spanish culture, where you can practice or learn Spanish, with the work hours you will have ample time to enroll in a school.

  • Help


    I am carrying out some refurbishment to my house and helping a friend tidy up the closed restaurant nearby. It will involve some painting, But best described as an additional pair of hands. I generally work for around 4 hours a day. finishing before 1400 hrs, There maybe times when you may have to work alone. Just thought. I would try out this idea, Not keen on working alone and would give people a chance to experience the amazing experience of life in Marbella. As well as a fire officer I have been a builder all my working life and have many skills to pass on. No experience required just be keen and take things as they come. It will be mostly light work so gender not important.
