  • Description


    Hi! I'm offering accommodation and 3 meals a day, Im looking for someone to help with either my 3 year old and some cooking (my 8 year old is very independent!) Or some garden work and a little bit of child care and cooking? There is a teepee tent to sleep in with a gas heater and proper mattress, and possibly a caravan is available. it would be super if you could do 4 hours a day, 6 days a week or,5 hours 5 days a week. We are totally off grid, some solar power, I have internet you can use, Its a 20 min walk into orgiva town, and a 20 min walk to the river (guadalfeo), we are in an olive and orange trees groove, in an area full of people living an alternative lifestyle, I would love it if someone could come for a week or two minimum, longer if it works out for us all :-)
    to help out, as you feel, contact me francesca for more info, thank you!

  • Help


    Mostly keeping an eye on my kids while they play with their friends, some light repair work on garden and land, a little gardening. My 3 year old little girl is very easy, my 8 year old son spends all day playing with his friends so is not needing much babysitting! We eat mostly gluten free (I'm sensitive but the kids not, they eat nearly everything!) and try eat big salads every day, and eco/organic meat once or twice a week, but if your vegan we can not eat meat, not much dairy and no sugar (apart from occasional ice creams ;-) ). But we are not super strict with anything.
