    Description

    Hello! We are Angela and Michiel, we live in the nature, in the beautiful mountains of the Alpujarras, Sierra Nevada. We have a land with a big vegetable garden, fruit trees, flowers and 3 cats.
    We need help to work especially in gardening, general maintenance, animal care, eco-construction (compost constructions, others). We prefer people with experience in Permaculture.

    We are located at 1500 m2 altitude, with several beautiful towns nearby, which are quite known for their beauty and authenticity in the region.

    We are several neighbors and we co-live in respect for each other and nature, therefore tranquility is important

    The apartment has everything to be independent with a double bed, a sofa-bed, kitchen, bathroom, washing machine.
    There is Wifi at my place and it is possible to arrange so that the apartment gets it too.
    It is better if you have your own car, although the nearest town walking for needs and buses is at a 15 min walk, through a beautiful hiking path.
    I ask for a minimum of 3 months, and if we like each other, it is possible to stay longer.
    Many beautiful hiking paths, mountain bike paths, waterfalls, paths along the small rivers called ''Acequias'' which is the most ancient watering system, heritage of the Arabs.
    It is important that you like to be in the nature, and that you like to spend time alone, or in silence. Nevertheless many social life is occurring in the nearby.
    I have some bicycles to lend.
    I rather prefer to host people who already know about gardening and general mantainace or with experience in lands.

    I also like to practice sports and meditation, go hiking and going sometimes to the beach which is at 1h15min from home!

    Hoping to know from you if this resonates with you!
    See you!


    Hola! Somos Ángela y Michiel y vivimos en pleno corazón de la Sierra de la Alpujarra Granadina

    Este lugar está lleno de paseos y rutas de montaña excepcionales, el Mulhacén y las 7 lagunas entre muchas otras, senderos que conectan los pueblecitos de la región por bosques de castaños milenarios, estoy a 1500m
    Hay vidilla en los pueblitos y es un entorno que muchos no abandonan cuando lo conocen.

    Tenemos una tierra con una huerta de 500m2 maravillosa, y árboles frutales, rosales...vivimos en una casa y además tenemos un apartamento totalmente independiente, que es el que ofrezco como alojamiento, con su porchecito. Tiene una cama doble, un sofá-cama, cocina baño, lavadora...
    Además, una cabaña de madera.

    Hay wifi en el apartamento y alrededor.
    Buscamos ayuda para llevar este lugar, muy especialmente la huerta y atender además a los 3 gatitos hermosos cuando no estamos.
    Preferimos que tengáis algo de experiencia en permacultura o construcción.
    Queremos construir un wc seco y cocina exterior entre otras cositas!

    Es importante que te guste estar en la naturaleza, y saber respetarla. Que te guste pasar ratos en silencio o a solas, aunque hay actividades sociales chulas por la zona. Cada vez más!
    Hay rutas de montaña maravillosas, de bici, paseos por las acequias, pueblos auténticos y peculiares, mercados...
    A mi me gusta mucho compartir el vivir, pero manteniendo la independencia.
    Soy músico y bailarina además de otras cosas, y necesito también mis espacios de silencio y meditación.
    Nos gusta hacer deportes

    La playa está a una hora y cuarto!
    Es preferible disponer de tu propio vehículo aunque no es imprescindible, pues hay conexiones caminando por senderos muy bellos a 15 minutos.

    Si te resuena, contáctanos!
    ! Te contaré más detalles y cualquier cosa que necesites saber!
    Hasta pronto!
