  • Descripción


    The main job is a few weeks in June, sorting out a traditional village house ( and me to some extent...) in the mountains. I really need someone (coach, motivator, inspiration, slave driver, house keeper,...) to get going on a real spring cleaning and organisation all round. There might well then be a week or two of just house sitting. And lastly, while I'm away probably a few mornings of watering small trees on a piece of land that's a 20 minute walk distant.

    The organisation of this is pretty much flexible or negotiable, both day to day, and as to dates, though likely starting early / mid June.

    I'm hoping you'll have had and run your own home so you know what needs doing: the ideal person would be independent, probably a woman who's a little older than many workawayers ( which sounds awkward, but I think you can see what I mean? )

    And you really need to read the whole profile.

    This is a small mountain village, a world far away from tourist Spain. It's very very quiet, but equally very friendly. You'll be greeted by everybody - they would love it if you can chat to them (though the local dialect / accent may make that a challenge...) . It's surrounded by a National Park, walking routes, a river, hills and mountains, forest land. If you want to see just how calm village life is, it's perfect; if you want to get right away from everything, it's perfect.

    I can help you with Spanish if you like. I'm a competent enough cook, know quite a few tapas / Spanish dishes and am happy to learn about more. I can offer massage to a professional level and could teach it. If you wanted to know about eco-building techniques, there's a lot to see on the land we have. Aaaand, well, psychology of several kinds, teacher training, Japanese theatre... but it seems unlikely somehow you'd be looking for these... ?

    Like any house, if you ignore it long enough then stuff just builds up... There are piles of books and cd's, rooms that need a serious cleaning, cupboards full of forgotten things... There's a garden that needs attention. I need somebody to get the place cleaner and more organised! It also would be really good to hear brutal criticism and new perspectives on what needs doing generally to make the house a more comfortable place.

    I expect to need to go away for a week, maybe two, and then it would be up to you to keep going a bit on cleaning / sorting, etc. But also on a piece of land about 20 minutes walk away we have planted lots of small trees and they will need a couple of mornings a week of watering early in the day or late evening to avoid the heat.

  • Alojamiento


    The house is the job is the accommodation... It's a traditional village house, mostly restored using recycled materials, not luxurious but it would be great to get ideas on how to make it better. It has most of the usual amenities - shower, washing machine, pleasant kitchen, etc. No wifi. There are several bedrooms, a roof terrace, a garden with hammock. It is an eccentric layout over three levels. I will be there some of the time, but you should easily find / make space for yourself.

    You can get to the village by a daily weekday bus to / from Ronda, and there are two trains a day to a nearby station. It's easy to travel from here to the big places like Sevilla, Granada, Cordoba if you want to make it a base for getting to see Andalucia. It's a bus ride to Ronda from Malaga which has cheap flights from almost everywhere.

    This is a flexible workaway; we can negotiate almost everything about how / when / where; days on or off; jobs to do. The weather is almost certain to be either hot or very hot, because summer in Andalucia, but is moderated by the mountains / river.

    You must be vaccinated for Covid. The village mayor insists. So do I.

    Sorry, but I hate the general cut and paste applications - if you want me to take an application seriously, your message must include the words 'cleaning, sorting, watering' . Thank for reading to the end !
