  • Description


    Hello, my name is Gustavo, I've been living in the countryside for ten years and I built my own house between one friend and I, now that it's finished I have plenty of work outside basically collecting almonds and olives and all the work next to the house. I live in an old Cortijo from the family completely rebuilt between two generations for 30 years now. So I basically I'm looking for people to help me to collect the almonds in the traditional way. Both houses are big and confortable including all the facilities like wifi and so on without neighbors around with plenty of space outside and beautiful views to the mountain, located 3 kms away from Villanueva del Rosario, 40 minutes from Málaga Airport and the beach.

    The rooms are comfortable with new beds and mattress and we share a very big salon with kitchen and incredible views including air conditioning in summer and fireplace in winter. The food we can organize to cook between the people here and sometimes try the traditional dishes who still are made from the family.

    Breakfast before or during the work, lunch at about 14:00 and dinner at about 20:00

    I usually go to Málaga three times a week in the afternoons. Sometimes to the beach or to buy something so I can arrange with helpers who need transport. Anyway there is one bus which goes from the town to Málaga.
