My husband and I (me 61 him 68) retired to Spain around 3 years ago. The house has become a bit much to manage and we require some general help with our property in Cantoria, Spain. You must be a dog lover as we foster a lot of puppies from a local charity :)
DIY and building projects
Help around the house
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
Cantoria is a beautiful area. This is absolutely ideal for those who enjoy hiking/cycling/horse riding (there are stables nearby which we highly recommend). We have bikes you can borrow if you wish.
There are many opportunities to practise your Spanish here, and we are happy to help you with your English :)
We are looking for 1 (possibly a couple) to work 20/25 hours a week in exchange for free accommodation. Jobs will be varied depending on what needs doing. Mainly jobs will involve gardening, ground clearance, pruning fruit trees, painting and decorating etc. You will have access to our pool/BBQ area. We recommend you have access to a car as the area is quite remote, but if you are happy with bicycles and happy to explore?
Separate converted annex to the rest of the house. You will have your own double room with fridge/freezer, an en-suite with shower. No cooker but we are happy to supply a BBQ.
We are remote but there are two bars within walking distance. The main town of Cantoria is just 2 miles and we are 45 minutes from the coast where you can visit the beaches of San Juan and Mojacar. There are no local buses so you will require a car. You are free to do anything you wish with your time here, we only ask that you are able to work 20/25 hours a week.
