  • Description


    My name is Faye. I always had a dream to purchase a bit of land, live off-grid, organically grow fruits and vegetables, and create a beautiful little community for nature and music lovers alike. Well now I have the land (which is only a 10 minute half from Orgiva), I'm realising the reality is that I have a whole world of things to do before I get there!!! So I'm looking for hardworking, kind and reliable people with some gardening knowledge to come together and help create something out of this blank canvas with so much potential.

    Enjoy the nature of the surrounding river valley and an active part of the beautiful Rio Chico neighbourhood. The vibrant alternative community and town of Orgiva is only 10 minutes walk away, with tapas bars, shops and restaurants, wellness classes etc all accessible without needing a car. My place can is often very chilled, but quite social at times as I do like to have BBQ's and jam nights occasionally, 4:20 friendly & musicians most welcome!

  • Help


    Looking for help on 19-29th Sept, to create a new waterway systems, that will transport water to a currently dry patch of land so that reforesting can begin!

    The place is not suitable for children, and no dogs please. Currently I am only looking for individuals over age 26 with and some experience in the above, particularly terracing and natural stone wall construction is an advantage, but not necessary.

    *Due to the ongoing covid situation, I ask that anyone who does come respects public health and safety advice or guidelines in regards to the global pandemic*

  • Accommodation


    One lovely traditional Alpujarran room with two single beds (could be shared occupancy) a camper van, and a Hymer motorhome available. Shared bathroom and kitchen. Bedding/towels provided. The house is on Solar, with well, aseccia & town water. Easily accessible by road + 200m track, with space for park up for van dwellers and camping options in warmer months. The front terrace overlooks the beautiful Lujar mountains, with an alberca style swimming pool. I will be providing all food (vegetarian/vegan is an option also), that we mostly prepare and eat together.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    The area is great for walkers/cyclists (if you can handle the hills!), and there is a yoga centre next door. Orgiva town centre is only 10 minutes walk away, so no car is needed on a daily basis. The Sierra Nevada mountains where you can Skii in winter and Granada city is 1 hour by car. Nearest airport Granada or Malaga, direct busses leave at 3pm from Malaga bus station to Orgiva. The busses are more regular and faster from Granada. Motril and the coast is only 40 minutes drive, and from there you can get a ferry to Morocco.

    If you have a campervan, you can have your pets with you, but I cannot accept pets in the house as I am allergic ;)
