We are looking for a couple or 2 or 3 workawayers together who will have their own en suite accomodation.
We have a small holding. It is in rural andalucia, Spain, totally off grid, solar electric, well water, gas/wood heating cooking. It is 4km from a sealed road, 7km from nearest village. (Or three miles by boat)
Grounds are 1 hectare which we have enhanced with an olive grove, vineyard and citrus trees. On top of this is a substantial kitchen garden with the aim of being self sufficient in veg and fruit.
Life very much centres on the tidal river at the end of the garden. We have a motor launch for going to town, and bars. Canoes for fun. Ocean going yacht anchored outside. Main house is raised on hillside with magnificent panoramic views up and down river
Have approx 100 m of private river bank with jetty.
