  • Description


    We are a couple living on a Cortijo near Cómpeta in the Campo with fruit and nut trees, avocados and an extensive well established garden. We would love some extra help with the many jobs. The views here are astounding with the sea only three miles as the crow flies, mountains all around and from dawn to sunset the changeing light is captivating. We have a small swimming pool which is ideal to jump into when it gets too hot. We have two houses and so could accommodate workaway helpers in their own Finca. I am a musician from Scotland and welcome any aspiring or accomplished musicians!

    Currently we are requiring help with painting of the house, trimming extensive plant growth (pruning, cutting back etc) digging, planting and also I am keen to have someone from 17th October to 31st to care for my cat as I don’t think my husband would do the necessary with the litter tray!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Travellers could learn English, I could teach them flute or penny whistle traditional Scottish and Irish music, they would enjoy my cooking as I love cooking and can cater for vegans and vegetarians as well as meat eaters. They would love my beautiful garden and swimming pool.

  • Help


    Our garden needs a lot of attention and also the fruit trees. I am hoping to eventually clear some areas and build platforms on which to put yurts and eco toilets. I am learning Spanish so if anyone could help speak to me in Spanish that would be a bonus.

  • Accommodation


    Whole independent Finca one bedroom with kitchen and sun lounge. If workawayers want to eat independently or with me that is fine. I’m happy to cook for them.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    The beach and sea is only ten minutes away at Torrox Costa or Nerja where there are world famous caves to visit. Cómpeta is a charming pueblo with white houses and fabulous bars and restaurants serving tapas and local wine. Right next to a national park there is walking and the area is popular with cyclists.
    I am a registered nurse and am enjoying not nursing! I love cooking and can make vegan and vegetarian food happily as I was vegetarian for many years although am not now. I play music and enjoy relaxing and swimming and listening to music. I have always enjoyed meeting new interesting people from all around he world. I am in my fifties aNd my husband in his sixties but we are always up for a laugh with anyone of any age group.
