I have been restoring my beautiful old water mill I bought here in Spain, doing almost all the work completely by myself. Now the majority of the work is finished but there are still some big projects that need to be finished, so I am looking for people to lend a hand. It will be a mix of building, cleaning, digging, gardening, etc - it will be hard work but I can adjust it to your experience and preferences. Average 4 hours/day of work, 5 days/week but if you're ok with it I may ask you to work more some days and have extra days off.
My wife and I will cook you delicious vegetarian meals, or you're welcome to cook for yourself in our kitchen. All your meals are included when you're at the house. The house is in a very beautiful area inside the Parque Nacional de la Sierra de Grazalema, with a small river next to the house, great to cool off in :) There is great hiking, cycling and rock climbing nearby. However, we are quite isolated and there are no shops or public transport within walking distance. If you have your own car or bicycle you will have more freedom of movement, otherwise you'll have to catch rides with us when we go to town for errands. We try to go out fairly often and have a social life, so you're always welcome to come with :)
DIY and building projects
We can exchange languages, musical skills, etc! I can give you recommendations on beautiful areas for hiking and other places to visit in the area.
Current projects I need help with:
Plastering the ceiling
Repainting the house
Installing a new water tank
Making a new veg patch in the garden
Clearing/cleaning various areas
Your own bed in a shared house, possibly a shared room depending on who else is here, or else a mattress and a tent if you prefer more privacy.
I am into rock climbing, paragliding, mushroom gathering, and hiking so you're welcome to come along! There is a beautiful reservoir nearby where we like to swim at the end of a hot day, or you can always cool off in the river swimming hole next to the house. There's a few nice towns around where you can experience real rural life in Spain.
