    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, pergola, guttering etc.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    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 start getting the vegetable patch ready as we approach spring. I want to start making a water fountain water feature, convert the workshed into a winery, build a terrace, a pergola, put in solar pumps, put in solar and wind power. 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. I can provide a bicycle - but it is hilly with some steep slopes. So getting to village maybe easy down hill mostly. Coming back up to the farm is mostly uphill so you need to be fit if you are thinking of using a bike. 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.
