    Hello, I'm Michael i live in a small village, El Golco, with about 15 people in the mountains of Sierra Nevada, this is the highest mountain range in Spain.

    I arrived to this village 30 years ago. I was searching for a peaceful place, quite and with good views. It is a good place for hiking, cycling.
    I work as an cabinetmaker in my own workshop, where I make furniture and meditation chairs.
    The sea is 45 minutes away by car and the nearest village with shop/bakery and pub is 25 minutes away on foot. Also internet access is available here at the village hall during opening hours.
    Furthermore I take care of disadvantaged youth, either in Granada or in my house. You may be able to help with homework/schooling with the teenager, if you wish and as required.
    Please bear in mind that the teenager I am caring for comes from a difficult background and will need at times my full attention, hence a somewhat more mature volunteer would get the most out of this experience.
    Ideally you are able to use your own initiative as you may have to work unsupervised at times and show some flexibility with the tasks that need doing.
    My diet is wholesome and healthy with fresh eggs and fish from the local market but I eat no meat.
    If you can't live without meat, do not despair! There is a local butcher where you can purchase fresh meat and you are more than welcome to use my kitchen to prepare it.
    I can't cater for special dietary requirements per se, but if you can look after your own meals, ingredients provided within reason, than you are most welcome to join me/us.
    Smoking outside only, please.
