  • Description


    We are an English couple in their 40's who moved to Spain in 2015. Everyone who visits us loves the area we live in. We are close to the centre of Torre Del Mar which is around 30 minutes from Malaga airport. We live around 15 minutes walk from the town centre and a further 5 minutes to the unspoilt beaches of Torre del Mar. We have a super friendly dog and are very easy going.

    We are both non smokers, so we do not allow smoking inside the property.

    Torre del Mar sits between the Mediterranean Sea and the Sierra Nevada mountains, making for spectacular views. Compared to much of the Costa del Sol, it has managed to retain a great deal of its authentic Spanish atmosphere, despite an increase in tourism. A long promenade along the water has clubs, excellent seafood restaurants, cafes and more, and the wide unspoilt beach is superb.

    Our house is a short (15 mins) walk from the town centre and a further 5 mins walk to the beaches. There is some English spoken in the town, but this will be a great opportunity to practice your Spanish.

    We are situated at the top of a steep hill, so offer some great views of both the mountains and sea.

    There are great bus links to Malaga, Nerja and surrounding areas from Torre del Mar.

  • Help


    We would like help with general maintenance, in particular, painting and decorating of our home, but also general housework tasks and cleaning. We are pretty flexible and keen to hear about your skills. We also have a dog, so there could be the opportunity of some dag walking around our beautiful area.

The dining area in the workaway accommodation
A typical dish in Torre del Mar is the espeto, grilled fish on a skewer. Look for one of the barbeques on the sea front, they are usually shaped like a boat.
