My name is Jo, I live in a cave house in rural Spain with my 5 dogs, Bonnie, Leila, Pablo, Lucy and Jack. (The dogs are family and allowed on the furniture.). The great thing about a cave is that it stays cool inside while the temperature rises outside.
We live in a barranco on the outskirts of the village (2 minute walk away).
I need help doing general maintenance on the cave, looking after my dogs and helping a friend set up an area for keeping cats whilst they recover from being spayed.
This is a great opportunity to live in a cave house and find out how/why it works.
Even better news, there's a pool!

I am Scottish, living in Spain, I speak a little Spanish and a little French. I live on the alto plain. There are some lovely villages and experiences in the area which I would be happy to take you to if you have no transport. Castril is a particularly lovely village which looks Alpine. There is a gorge walk there. You would be welcome to come on my dog walks as, again, the scenery is gorgeous.
I am currently doing a TEFL course so can help with English if wanted/needed.
Must have proof of clear Covid 19 test.
I need help clearing out the cave i.e. Folding, packing and cleaning.
I need painting done and possibly some plastering.
There is probably about 2 weeks work. The temperature here is in the high 30s and 40s and you can't work outside for too long, which is why I need the help.

Own bedroom and bathroom. The bedroom is a cave room, it's really big and roomy. Sleeping with a dog is optional but not guaranteed.lol
I will supply food but may not do the cooking if it is specialised i.e. Vegan/vegetarian.
You are welcome to use the pool in your time off, or there is a local pool if you prefer.
There are several cafe bars. Lovely walks around the area. There is a bus into Baza, which is the main town, in the morning. There are local markets nearly every day in the area.
My home is non-smoking but you can smoke round the pool area.
I expect My home and animals to be respected and expect it to feel like your home too.
I am hoping that you will come to stay first for a workaway but come back again for a visit.
Limited internet access
We have pets
We are smokers
