We are a retired english couple with a holiday home in Montefrio near Granada, Spain. Our house is a 150 year old farmhouse, set in olive groves with beautiful views, and situated at 900 metres above sea level, overlooking the Parapanda Mountain. Separate accommodation with own cooking facilities available, or we can provide a hot evening meal. We are walking distance from small town of Montefrio, a typical 'pueblo blanco' of Andalucia

Our old house needs maintenance every spring. We are looking for a hand with the house and garden between Mon 20th - Mon 27th April 2015 repainting with traditional lime wash, and general maintenance after winter. Work might include cleaning the swimming pool, garden maintenance, and general odd jobs.
