  • Description


    Hello! First, read everything we explained to make sure you have the profile we are looking for before writing to us. :)

    First of all, its a project on its first stages, dont expect luxury but a comfortable small paradise. Lot of work need to be done and we expect you to different tasks as gardening, building, collect stones, chopping trees, cave building, animal care, cooking, harvest veggies, create new spaces, fix fences, construct furniture, paint, cleaning and lots more.... expect to get dirty. Working hours would be 0900 to 1300 monday to friday although you will need to feed animals daily adn occasionaly water plants in the evening so as many of them are required to water in the evenings when the soil its not that warm.

    We are looking for people or couples, over 30 if possible, autonomous people, that is, able to cook, clean, work outdoors and with animals, without being told how to do everything.... as we say if you dont know anything about countryside or farm related tasks this is not you kind of place.
    You will have at your disposal food to cook your meals,room in the cave house that is super cool in summer or we are also fixing caravans for the newbies, or you just can set up a tent or park your campervan ,mind that the place is very hot in summer so hours of work can be different to avoid midday sun ...Comunal kitchen and shared bathroom and many little places to lie down to read, listen to music ...
    We can provide tools, some workwear, eventual transport from village nearby and Almeria.
    The views are beautiful and we have no neighbors, you can take spectacular walks into the desert or the mountains nearby as we are close to the Alpujarra , the town is 5 minutes by car or 25 minutes walking ... and the beach 30 minutes by car.

    If you are interested and have questions, do not hesitate to write us and we will answer your questions!

    Thank you!!!
