    Description

    Hello nice people,

    We are a French couple around 35 needing help building and renovating a "casa de campo" and turning a dry land into a green paradise.
    My girfriend ( Amelie) and I (Anthony) have been quite a lot around the world and we settled down a year ago in the countryside between Malaga and Marbella.

    We want to apply all the things we have been learning through our experiences by travelling, meeting people.
    About a year ago we found our place in a 6600 square meters land. We've been doing a lot of work on the house and we are now focusing on the outside area so we can in a near future offer it for special events and workshops.
    We need help to change the landscape and we always have a lot of projects.

    The town near by is Coin (6km) and you can be there with one of the bikes we have in 30 minutes, we can also sometimes drop you to the train station in Cartama with direct trains to Malaga center.

    We motivated and independant workers, with a great positive attitude and who do not mind being in a rural area.
    Keep in mind that, the tasks are varied, and it is crucial that our workers are flexible and adaptable.

    "Uptdate"
    We had a hard year receiving helpers, friends and family. We are kind of low batteries and need to rest a bit. So we are actually looking for a couple or 2 pers. Is possible that we might no sharing much time with you. So if you are looking for socialize and sharing a lot, it might not be the perfect workaway experience for you. I don't want to say that we are caverns animals that don't want to talk with no one, we are just un nice and friendly couple who need to catch up a bit :) .
    For the food and accomodation, We will provide the strict minimum to cook. We won't buy extra like chocolate, nuts, etc. We could give you a ride to the supermarcket to buy these staff though ;) We love to be as clear and transparente as possible. :)
