  • Description


    Living in a large rural house in Los Vélez in Almería province with my rescue dog, Scobi. Took on a big house with a huge garden that's looking a little neglected. My native language is English but I'm also fluent in Spanish. I like walking in the countryside with the dog, socialising and getting to know new people.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Vélez Rubio is a unique Spanish mountain town with a vibrant feel and welcoming people. As somebody who has travelled extensively I love to share stories and experiences with others. I work as an English teacher and happy to help with that if you need.

  • Help


    Looking for help with the garden and possibly some painting and decorating inside. If you're any good at building things, such as pallet furniture or a chicken run this will be a bonus too.
    I'll provide food and lodging in return for your help.

  • Accommodation


    You will have your own double bedroom with en-suite bathroom and mountain views. Access to all shared areas of the house including the garden and swimming pool (July to September). I will buy the food shopping, you can help yourself to breakfast and snacks. For lunch and evening meals we can take turns cooking and eat together. If we go out to eat you'll need to finance this yourself.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    There's lots to see and do in the area. Ideally you will have your own transport, but this is not essential as the town centre is walking distance (35 minutes). Lots of natural beauty right on the doorstep and a national park 20 minutes drive away. It's approximately 1 hours drive to the coast (Mojacar, Águilas, Verá), 30 minutes to Lorca and an hour and a half to Almería City. Velez Rubio has good Alsa bus routes from all major cities and airports

    Can possibly accept pets

    Yes, but be aware that my dog is not great with other animals until he gets to know them. Please discuss with me first if you'd like to bring a pet.
