    Single, semi retired ex-teacher. I live on my own with my two lovely dogs. I was a chef so my food is fantastic; I only use fresh additives or processed foods. Love cooking for others so you are in for a treat during your stay. Write and blog about food now as an occupation!

    Beautiful traditional area so will see the real Spain; though only 1 1/2 hours away from Costa Del Sol one way, and Granada and the Sierra Nevada's, the other.

    My ongoing renovation house project is in a stunningly beautiful hamlet, and area. Peace and quite is all around with magnificent views. This is in Almeria Province, Spain, on the border with Mercia Province so Benidorm is 1 1/2 hours away. The sea 1 hour away.

    I have bought a traditional stone house in a local hamlet, and have just spent three years renovating. This is not yet completed but at a stage where it is liveable, and comfortable.

    Unfortunately, I have run out of money and need to go back to the UK to earn some more to complete my project. Until May 2022 I plan to continue working in the UK so cannot offer workaway until afterwards.

    I do though require experience of building work, the ability to work under own initiative, and someone, or a couple, who would be happy to work on their own for when I return to the UK for two weeks at a time.

    I have added a few images showing the beautiful Almond growing area where I live.

    There are great bars in the locality, where tapas are still served free when you buy a beer (for 1.40 Euros)! Fantastic or what? The local town has a market, as does most of the little towns around here.

    I hope you will get in touch, even for just a chat. I am on FaceTime and WhatsApp so calls are free via these two. Thank you. :)X
