  • Description


    Option 1 - I live in an off the grid, eco-friendly villa in La Safor, West Coast Spain. A location of outstanding beauty with wildlife and wonderful mountain walks. The villa has a large garden, private pool and WIFI. The accommodation includes private bathroom and living area. I have two young and affectionate dogs. I would like some help with house maintenance, gardening and painting in return for full board and lodging. I am an experience English teacher and IELTS examiner and can offer language training and advice.
    Option 2 - I have a small two bedroom self-contained flat in the village of Villalonga, in return for 3 days (24 hours) work per week you would have sole use of the accommodation (electricity and water included but WFI to pay) Maximum stay 2 weeks - would suit a couple, or two or three friends.

    When the weather is good work will be outside painting - if the weather is bad it would be paining inside. Work would be from 9.00 am after breakfast until lunch at 13.00 pm. Afternoons are free to enjoy the wonderful local walks or to hang out by the pool in the summer.

    You will have your own bedroom, bathroom and living area. I will provide breakfast, lunch and and evening meal (all vegetarian). You will be able to use the fridge to store extra food and drinks (not meat). The Villa has WIFI and you will be able to use the garden and pool (in the summer!) The villa is a 7 minute drive from the village of Villalonga which I usually visit daily - I will be able to offer lifts to an from the village if it fits with my schedule. The trip to the village takes around 40 minutes to walk. There is a bar restaurant very close to the villa.
