We (I'm Spanish and my wife is English) are the proud owners of a little hovel in one of the most picturesque places in southern Spain, in the Sierra Mágina, in Jaén. We've got all sorts of plans for the house, but not much money!! .... so this winter we'll be working on our projects and we'll be looking for one ot two people to help us out.
We've been using workaway for several years now, in Spain, as volunteers, and have met some wonderful people. But this winter we've decided it's time to try to make our own place a bit nicer!

We can help you improve your Spanish and your English, the Sierra Mágina is a beautiful mountain range with plenty of walks, the whole area is virtually unknown to foreign tourists, but we're very close to Úbeda and Baeza, both world heritage towns. We can teach you how to cook lovely food!
Lorraine puede ayudar a mejorar tu inglés si quieres. Si hablas español y no comprendes lo que aquí hemos escrito, por favor, escribanos para más información.
We had a wonderful workaway for a week, who tiled one of the kitchen walls, then Serafin did one, and now we're looking for someone who wants to help us do another one! And since then we've had 4 more lovely helpers, so we now have a bbq, and the patio is looking much less like a builder's yard.
We've more or less finished the painting but now we want to finish tiling the kitchen, plus tile the floor of one room, change a window, build a small bathroom, dig a patch to plant some veggies, make some bunting for the patio, put a mosiac behind the bbq ... a never ending list!
Plus languages - Lorraine wants to practice Greek, German and French, and Serafin needs to learn more English!

Upstairs, private double room, shared bathroom. The stairs are very narrow! We'll provide breakfast, lunch and dinner, but might not always be around to cook it (would be nice to share cooking, we're both chefs, but good to have a break sometimes!) No smoking in the house.
We prefer to start at about 10am, and work through to about 3 pm. We normally do Spanish style big lunch, small snacks in the evening.
Our house is in the village of Bedmar. From the village there are buses to Jaén and to Úbeda, but we might be able to take you somewhere by car, depending on what we're doing. It's a very small village, just a few bars and shops, not much going on, but perfect if you like walking, or just relaxing somewhere peaceful. We DO NOT have wifi, (we both just use mobile data on our phones) but there is wifi in the local bar, and also a "guadalinfo" centre with free computers and wifi. We love listening to music, and Serafin usually uses the telly to watch quiz games and the news in the evening.
In the autumn, winter and spring months the weather is usually dry, sunny, can be pretty cold at night, great for walking. Sometimes we get rain, but not often.
In the summer it's just silly hot, so impossible to do anything, and anyway, we usually go away to work on the coast.
Maximum 4-5 hours a day, 5 days a week.
