English guy, late 50's, retired early and moved to Spain. Carcaixent is in the Valencia region and is where I found my 1920 Farmhouse with orange grove. The house is in good condition but needs some repair jobs, re-decorating and furnishing.
The 'huerto' is 2 km from the nearest railway station. Valencia city is 40 minutes and very easy via the train. It's a short drive to the mountain area with some testing walks and great views. There and plenty of beaches within a 30 minute drive and many places of interest nearby.
Cooking is not my thing, so help there would be great. Basic food and drink is provided of course.
My goal is to make the house more comfortable, continue to improve my pre-intermediate Spanish and learn how to maintain the orange grove. Weeding is a big part of this I am discovering.
Key rules here are safety and health. No risky activities allowed and basic hygiene, like keeping the place reasonably clean is expected. Smokers are not accepted here, sorry.
The area here is tranquil and likewise this is a good place for people to be relaxed and open minded. So there is no expectations other than those listed above.

Learn a little about citrus farming and local town life in the Valencia region. Visit older cities such as Xativa, Alzira and Valencia with their historic roots. Relax and enjoy the tranquility of the area. Take occasional trips to mountains or the coastal towns such as Cullera, Tavernes & Gandia with their spectacular beaches.
Help in the orange grove picking fruit, clearing leaves, weeding etc. Indoor help is mainly cleaning, minor repairs, decorating and help with furnishings
