    Description

    Update 9th October 2019....Following a hip replacement a month ago, I am needing a little extra help with household work as I am still hobbling around on crutches.Our current lovely workawayers will be moving on at the end of October, and we need someone or a couple to take their place for a further 2 or 3 weeks from this time.

    We are an Anglo-Dutch couple who have retired to Andalucia. Spain and live about 45 km. north of Granada with our two 3 year old dogs
    Our house has nice views and is situated on the outskirts of Mures a village with > 800 inhabitants at an altitude of 836 m. There is a bus stop only 50 m. away, a bank, a council office, a library, a general store, a chemist, a Drs. surgery and 5 bars (one is also a restaurant with terrace and BBQ. at 200 m.) The nearest (and attractive ) town is Alcala la Real at 14 km.
    My name is Valerie and I still work part time from our home as a sport+relaxation massage therapist. My husband Miel was an export manager in glasshouses which meant that we lived and worked abroad for various contracts and therefore developed tolerant and multi-cultural personalities and cuisine.
    We are looking for one person or an established couple . We do NOT want arguing teenagers .Although we are both in our 70s we are definately NOT looking for ¨care for the elderly ¨.
