We are an anglo-bolivian couple, now separated, with two young kids, Ivi and Ari, living in an extremely beautiful area, La Taha valley in the Granada alpujarra on the south side of the Sierra Nevada. I (George) own an idyllic smallholding with lots of growing and some construction jobs (retaining walls, etc). Vivi lives in a house in a village just two kilometres away (Mecina) and occasionally needs help with childcare, cooking and cleaning too. The children are half the time with Vivi and half the time here. No road access, 10mins walk from nearest village, (some of the most beautiful walking trails in all Andalucia on the doorstep).
Babysitting / child care
Cooking / shopping
Help with Eco project
Help in the house
Help with Computers / internet
To learn languages, childcare, animalcare. We are an anglo-bolivian family living in the alpujarras and our place is well located for fantastic walks in beautiful landscapes, many along very ancient trails.
Looking for help with country tasks, building and cooking. Now also very interested in help from someone with website creation and management to help me with the marketing of the property as a niche tourism destination. A paradise for the adventurous with a keen interest in self-sufficiency. Some tasks will be physically demanding. Perfect for those wishing to be healthy-living in a natural environment away from it all. It's important to like children while also enjoying your own space. Looking for helpers / volunteers, individuals/couples , possibly long term, english teaching (for the kids) and gardening being the main activities this season. Most keen to have a long term self-reliant couple who can look after the place if I go away.
A 6m diameter Mongolian yurt will be your home and one of your jobs will be to improve it with love and care. Solar panel electricity. Wifi available at the main house and also the house in Mecina.
There is also a new house above, with fantastic views, hence being able to have two couples/individuals in total.
I'm especially interested in having these inhabited and looked after in the summer.
Can cater for vegetarians but not for vegans. With a newly acquired house (solar power but no toilet or bathroom as yet) in the upper part of the land, it may be possible to have two couples (one in the yurt and one in the new house) if they are able to be independent and take on the management of cooking, cleaning, driving , shopping and gardening between them, long term between January and March. This would require quite intense training for the first week by me (George) and then lots of independent responsibility and pro-activity on your behalf... an interesting proposal for those who wish to oversee the long'term development of a project (being to convert this finca into an eco-tourism farmstay using all three houses as rentals), while working together in a group and individually assuming diefferent roles and responsibilities.
