    Iam looking for a nice open minded and nature loving couple, what can speak spanish and stay at my house to take care of the property....I need somebody to help in the house and garden, like cleaning, watering, shopping, cooking and care taking of my animals. (my lovely Dog, 4 Cats and a chicken). And it would be amazing if you have some gastro skills...I opend a restaurant 2 month ago and there is still lots of work to do...creative work like painting signs, decoration and if you are very social you could also be a promotor and help in the service.
    I also look for people what are willing to stay at least 2 weeks or more. max. 1 month ....I live here off the grid, so there are a lots of tasks to do daily.NO WIFI! No electricity! But there are some solar lights for the night. For example to have fresh water you need to pump it up first from the well....if you have any further question please feel free to write me an email.....thank you ! And hope to see you soon :-)
