    Description

    Hi, I live in Montecorto - around 20kms from Ronda, Andalucia, Southern Spain. I have bought a farm that has been used for growing wheat. I plan to live there and convert it to a vineyard. I also plan to make it as environmentally friendly as possible with projects such as rain harvesting, solar and wind power, organic and sustainable etc. It is on a ridge with stunning views of the Serrania de Ronda mountains. It is the birth of a new vision and would welcome people who can help me make it a reality.
    I need a couple of spare hands and arms to fix the garden with outdoor seating, play space for visiting kids, etc.

    This area has a huge amount of history of vine growing and it is going through a revival. There is Roman site of Acinipo within 4 kms, and other vineyards. Ronda is such a beautiful place also with a lot of Moorish history. My Spanish is still basic so we can improve it together!

    I want to build a terrace, put in solar pumps, put in solar and wind power. I am planting more trees, vines in the vineyard and the existing ones need maintenance. I am starting to look at building an area for an eco cabin- but I want to plant trees and bushes first around the space before the actual Eco cabin build . There are several smaller projects around the house - but mainly outside.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    It would be better if you had your own car. Since the farm is 6km from the nearest village. There are buses/coaches from the local village that can take you to neighbouring towns. I go into Ronda regularly for supplies so am happy to drop off and pick up while running errands, and on weekends etc. The sourrounding area and villages are stunning. Just google Ronda and neighbouring area, there are also nearby cities such as Malaga, Jerez, Cadiz, Sevilla etc.
