  • Description


    We are a middle-aged semi-retired English couple, vegan/veggie. We can’t eat dairy products and choose not to eat meat or fish. The house is in the valley surrounded by mountains and 30 mins to the beach. Teri speaks English, Spanish, French and Portuguese (Brazilian). Teri is a good cook and great teacher. I on the other hand only speak English and a little Spanish, but have many manual skills. We live as much as possible with a mind on the environment and try not to impact on nature.
    I am a (new) beekeeper into my second year and learning all the time. So there are many bees around us.

    I would love someone that is able to cook veggie/vegan food and be able to drive a washing machine. At the moment I need some general ground preparation around the orange trees, and lots of weeding.
    There are a lot of other routine maintenance jobs around the house and grounds as well for the less experienced !
    I have just returned from the uk after a five month contract and need to catch up on a lot of things around the house !
