  • Description


    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 a private bathroom, kitchen, and living area. I have two young and affectionate dogs. I would like some help with house maintenance, gardening, and painting in return lodging.
    In return for free accommodation, I would like help for around 15 hours per week per person. I don't want to get tied up in food arrangements but as a vegetarian, I would welcome like-minded people.

  • Help


    When the weather is good work will be outside and if the weather is bad it would be inside. Work would minimal, around an hour per person per day, the rest of the time you would be free to chill out and enjoy the wonderful local walks or hang out by the pool in the summer.

  • Accommodation


    You will have your own bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, and living area. 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 and 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.
