Hola! Bonjour, Czesc, Hi ...Halo!
We fall in love with this subtropical Valley almost 17 years ago, coming back from the Carabean, crossing on sailing boats where we used to work.
We are a polish-french family (Piotr is 50 years old, Alexandra 48), with 3 children aged 13, 15 and 16 (who enjoy very much playing with volunteers! ).
We speak french, polish, spanish , german and english.
We are in the nature, in the province of Granada (Andalucia), on the hills of the Costa Tropical, 12km from the coastal town of Almuñecar and 2, 5 km from the village of Jete.
We have half an hectar of organic orchards : avocadoes, mangoes, oranges, mandarines, lemons, chirimoyas, goyavas, papayas etc...and many almonds trees.
So, we have often work around them, weeding, pruning, giving them fertilizer, etc...
We built our house with a lot of recycling, it's a green roof bioclimatic comfortable mountain retreat : ideal place to spend wonderful time , to take a rest, away from the hustle and bustle of city life, to enjoy the swimming pool with the view on the tropical valley.
We have always various maintenance works with the buildings (paint, repairs...)
We have a small vegetable garden, (not always in production), depending on the free time we have...), a few chicken for fresh eggs and cats for the pleasure...

We live quite isolated in the hills, you can enjoy the tranquility, and the views on the mountains, on the avocadoes, mangoes orchards all around.
Nice place for trekking, but also for playing music : guitar, accordeon, trumpet, ukelele...and relax under the sun.
2 km down, the tipical white andalucian village of Jete, with its 3 bars where learning spanish is always fun with the locals.
The beaches are reachable in 2 and a half hours walking through the mounatins, or with bus from Jete (15 minutes)
We used to live on sailingboats during many years, in Mediterrean, and Caraibes before coming to Spain. Still have a boat and love to sail when we have some free time. We enjoy as well to kayak on the sea.
We are happy to share our experiences and cultures with you,
Waiting for you!
