    Description

    We are a busy family with 2 children, 18 & 16. We have 7 acres with dogs and cats. We run a paragliding school in the village where we have two houses for clients. We are looking for an animal loving couple to help with animal feeding and general DIY chores around the house and land.

    We run our own paragliding school and have a young family so life is very busy. On our land, we have a very nice cabin with bedroom/bathroom/kitchen for a workaway to be independent. We are 2km from a very beautiful little village and we are surrounded by stunning mountain ranges and lakes. It is a great opportunity for someone to have a taste of rural Spanish life and learn some Spanish at the same time. The Village is very Spanish, very friendly and safe, and incredibly cheap to eat out.

    We ask that you feed the animals, 4 dogs, 3 cats, . We also either have some gardening, Olive pruning, and DIY or painting jobs to do during the week. The house is 2km from the village, it's a 20min walk, we do have bicylec es and go into town every day but if want to enjoy walking and the countryside then you've come to the perfect place.

    Re food, if we are not there Mon-Fri we give you money for food and you cater for yourself in the cabin. We try to arrange for you to get a lift to the shops once a week to stock up. At the weekends we cook for everyone.

    We like practical people who are happy to be independent. You also need to be self-motivated as we are not always at the house but we do like to see that things have progressed during your stay.

    We are half an hour from Ronda in the direction of Seville. There is a good bus service from the village so you can visit Cadiz, Jerez, Seville etc.

    We are all English but the children are bi-lingual so you can practice/learn Spanish with them if you want to.

    Anything else just ask.

    Help

    General help around land and diy. Autumn is Olive season so we need to prune, burn and pick over Autumn. Late winter is more of the same plus more painting !

    As we are busy we are looking for someone to do some odd jobs and diy around the land, painting, simple gardening, repairing fences, helping with veg patch ect. Animal lovers are essential, easy-going and relaxed and not to shy to get stuck in
    its a great place to be if you like the countryside and peace and quiet, though town is close by and has a suprisingly vibrant night life. Our team of instructors will make finding a social life no problem!

    So we have internet access at the house, its good enough to stream netflix etc but it's not enviable city speeds, it's normally pretty reliable. You'd have access to that of course, it works around the pool and the front terrace as well as in the main house.

    Yes to the extent, but smaller campers would be welcome, we've room but big campers with old cluthes won't like the drive from the bottom gate.
