    Hola y bienvenido !!!
    I have lived in Spain for 30 years
    My cortijo(small farmhouse)is 150+ years old, situated in the mountain.
    Bought this place(a ruin) 26 years ago.
    This is a typical Spanish area (not touristic)
    Been living here now in the cortijo for 19 years, in peace with the countryside and animals.
    It is 20 min.by car from Almuñecar, Mediterranean Costa Tropical
    I have 3 (8 kg size)rescue dogs.They are good friends and good company + 6 chickens and 1 donkey.
    They go loose. Have my land fenced in.
    On the land there are old olive -carob-pomegranate trees and various newly (last 14 year) planted fruit trees.
    My land is situated on the mountainside/slope.
    Have a fairly big plot/flat land, organic vegetable garden.
    The land is organic taken care of, for 30+ years.
    I consider myself easy to get along with and hard worker. I hope for the same attitude from helpers.
    Unfortunately I'm having trouble with my 2 hands since the last year and need more help then before. a bit frustrating!!!
    I speak Scandinavian,English and Spanish.
    I'm looking for 1 helper or 1 couple from approx.30 years old,comfortable with 5 hours work per day, 5 days a week.
    Usually from 1-2 weeks stay, sometimes more.
    You like a peaceful lifestyle and you like your one company!(You do not have to be entertained....)

    You are not afraid of manual labour
    You like working.
    You are practical,
    Responsible and strong....
