***UPDATE*** Currently looking for workawayers with carpentry and painting skills ***UPDATE***
We’re a family of three: Eszter, Balazs and our little daughter Anna born in August. We are both professionals and work for an international organisation.
The house in Andalusia is our second home where we spend now the winter months to profit from the sun and redesign the mediterranean gardens.
We are looking for two helpers, preferably a couple as soon as possible to help in the garden and some housework. We will redesign the mediterranean gardens, plant fruit trees and other ornamental plants. The terraces and inside the house needs as well some decoration. We would love if you could read and sing to our baby in your mother tongue, prepare meals for us and help a little with the household chores.
The amount of tasks is endless and there are different things to do every day, you will not get bored. We expect you to help 5 hours a day, 5 days per week (cooking and washing up is accounted at 50%, as you will also be cooking for yourself and you are expected to keep your quarters clean). Some days there will be more tasks than other days and we will talk about which two days you would like to be free.
3 healthy & vegetarian meals a day are included, and will be prepared/cooked by one of the workawayers or occasionally by us. We also provide snacks and fruits. Sometimes you would eat with us and you can also cook for yourself. We like wholesome, local, vegetarian food with a lot of taste.
If you are a natural handyman and/or like gardening, have a strong work ethic, please contact us and tell us about yourself, about your past projects and which tasks you would be most interested and talented in. The place is ideal for workawayers who like calm and silent countryside, and to be in nature.
We expect every volunteer to have a valid travel/health insurance. Please bring the necessary documents!
We are very excited to hear from you.

We are located in the heart of Andalusia, near a traditional whitawashed village. You can have day trips to the historic towns of Granada, Cordoba and Malaga. Living with us you will also experience authentic Spain away from the tourist masses. You can take part in the olive harvest and visit local fiestas. Help will often be guided by professionals so you can also improve your skills.
We need help in the garden and some housework. We will redesign the mediterranean gardens, install an irrigation system, build pathway and a sundeck, plant ornamental plants and a few fruit trees. The terraces and inside the house needs as well some decoration. We would love if you could read and sing to our baby in your mother tongue, prepare meals for us and help a little with the household chores.
We only want to welcome honest and responsible persons who - after having received initial guidance and if necessary training - can do the tasks on their own and manage following a planning without us having to explain all the time the same things or check every day if the job is done.
We offer a large and nice room with private bathroom and we provide good and healthy food, in a beautiful location. We expect a good exchange.
Hardworking and creative persons who take initiatives, you are welcome!!
The house is a former bed and breakfast, so you will have your own bedroom with en-suite bathroom in a completely separated section of the house. You can also use a separate kitchen.
You can enjoy the garden with fabulous views in your free time. Lots of books and DVDs to enjoy and great internet connection. The house is 1 hour from the Sierra Nevada ski slopes. You can have nice walks in the countryside nearby and visit villages and cultural gems of the area.
