  • Description


    We (Edu from Venezuela, Miri from Germany, Joey the doggy from Tenerife) started a climbers and outdoor sports hostel near the beautiful town of Granada in Andalusia, Spain. From next season on (middle of September) we are searching for somebody to help us with tasks around home and garden, hopefully having a busy place with guests again after many lockdowns.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We can take you out climbing and teach you a lot about that. And we can also offer language training in Spanish, English or German if you want to train your skills :-)
    We love to have international community dinners here, so you will definitely enjoy new tastes and dishes, you haven´t had before.
    And of course, hopefully travelling is allowed again with the Corona situation, and we hope there will be the nice possibility to meet people from everywhere and have a nice time with them. Because that`s what we want: create a nice and welcoming space here, for people to stay and share experiences and cultures :)

    Maybe the most important reason to come here is Granada and it`s surroundings! It`s a beautiful town with a lot to see and do, and just 20 minutes away from our place.
    Regarding sports activities: there is a lot of climbing around, one sector is just around the corner, and you can do many other outdoor sports around here. Basically everything you can think of. For example hiking and mountainbiking is starting right in front of the house. Also the mediterranean sea is like 1 hour away.

    We are looking for responsible persons who will help us maintain our big garden throughout winter and spring season, as well as help with different smaller renovation or maintenance works that need to be done around the garden.

    Gardening tasks depend of course on the season: in autumn/winter it will be more about cleaning, like collecting leaves, etc. and prepare our veggie garden for winter, so we can start it again in spring.
    In spring all plants grow like crazy, so it will be a lot of cutting, cleaning, preparing the veggie garden, planting, ...

    Examples for renovation/maintenance tasks would be to help us with:
    - Finishing our barbecue grill
    - Cementing the floor around the pool
    - Fixing our bonfire place with cement
    - Making some garden walls more pretty (still open for ideas ;-) )
    - etc.

    Also every now and then, we maybe need some help cooking, cleaning or doing small things around the household.

    We would like to have somebody who will stay at least a month, or longer if possible.
