  • Description

    Description

    Our village in Andalucia and its surrounding area has been a place of continuous settlement since the first prehistoric inhabitants of Europe came. It's 1100 meters above the sea level and characterized by its continental Mediterranean climate. You can visit neolithic caves and the Renaissance castle. There are many wells and small streams. You can go hiking through the beautiful mountains. There is also a market every week. The village offers everything you need (post office, supermarket, hairdresser, bars, restaurants, hotels, tobaco shop...)

    We've just bought land here (2.5 hectare) with a big hall and some stables. We, that's Juan (44), Jenny (41), Rosa (13) and Lilly (12) and two dogs, two cats, 5 chicken and a rooster, 2 goose and a turkey.
    We are restoring stonewalls between our gardens. We are trying to manage an organic garden and we need help with the fence. There is every time something more to do like caring of the animals, restore stables, working in the vegetable garden, painting ... in general everything you need to do to live in the countryside.
    We are looking for people who will work five hours a day and the rest is free time. We would prefer people with skills like carpenters, painter, plumber etc. If you don't have skills at least you must be in the mood for helping.
    We will offer you accommodation and three meals a day.
