We are a couple with a lovely dog and a 25 years old daughter who is studying in Italy. We left France 13 years ago to start a new life in Italy and then in south of Spain. We bought 10 years ago a big Finca in Costa Del sol that we completely fixed, reformed and decorated by respecting its andalusian character and environment. It was hard work but worth it as the location is stunning, a place in the countryside with panoramic view over sea and mountains. (Only 5mn driving from unspoilt beaches and seaside town Torre Del Mar, 30mn from Malaga.
We used to rent the Finca for 3 years welcoming people from all over the world but we are now more likely to work on other projects .
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help around the house
We really think that it's a great and unique volunteer opportunity as you can get all the aspects of living in a nice Finca discovering the beauties of Andalusia and really experience to live like a local while taking care of lovely pets.
You will surely improve your skills in a great place of nature and make some progress in languages too as we speak French (native speaker) Spanish, Italian and English.
Hello everybody !

This apartment will be clean and in perfect condition and we will expect it to be returned in the same conditions (which unfortunately was not always the case during our last workaway experiences. :(...

In return, we offer the couple to live in one of the building of the Cortijo with stunning view (a lovely 60m2 independent studio fully- equipped with air conditioning / heating -system, washing machine, television, terrace with barbecue with view over mangos y avocados fields) ...
The bedroom is with king size bed, a room with wardrobe/ office and bathroom with toilet sink and shower .
In the Cortijo you can really get back to the roots: Besides some houses nearby you are surrounded by avocado, mango and citrus fruit orchards with sheep or goats occasionally grazing about – the pure Andalusian idyll free of noise or architectural eyesores.
The village may be small, but it offers pretty much everything you need – including a rustic bar with live acts occasionally performing on weekends.
Plus, there is good public transport from and to Almayate.
Besides, Almayate is located on the last undeveloped stretch of coastline of Costa del Sol – in the off-season, the beach is deserted, only during the summer months mostly Spanish families can be spotted. Every couple of kilometres you will find little taverns offering freshly grilled fish or a Gin and Tonic – there is no better way to enjoy the sunset.
The closest city, Torre del Mar, is at a distance of around 4km. Besides countless bars, restaurants and shops you will enjoy the lovely beach promenade stretching over various kilometres, and at its end there are several beach clubs – during the day you can chill on enormous beds, during the night dance in the open air.Just a bit further on your way to Nerja, in the fishing village Caleta, you can have a nice meal and beautiful view of the port. The white villages of Nejra and Frigiliana (20mn from the house) are stunning as the historical city centre of Malaga (30mn driving / 45 mn by bus from the house) And then obviously Granada, Córdoba, Sevilla, Gibraltar etc.
