    Description

    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.

  • Help

    Help

    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.
    Some gardening.

    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.

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    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.

  • What else ...

    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.
