  • Description


    I really need somebody as soon as may be to live in an off-grid farmhouse, and look after the land around it, for the next few weeks. The land isn't really a farm, more of a re-wilding project, and there's quite a lot of tree watering to be done, and helping out with a mixture of manual work ( pruning, whitewashing, painting water tanks...). None of the work is very hard, it's varied, and I'm happy to make some of more like teaching / learning work on eco-construction techniques, tree planting, etc.

    The place is pretty basic but in a very beautiful quiet area. The house works, there's a plunge pool, the shops are twenty minutes walk away, I'm completely flexible about the work / schedule.

    And you really need to read the whole profile.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    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... ?

  • Aide


    Most of it was said in the introduction. There's a hectare of land and just a huge mix of jobs to be done - clearing land, watering, whitewashing, building a half finished composting toilet, cleaning water tanks, watering trees, mulching, turning compost piles... There's so much that you'll be able to choose a lot of what you want to do. But a lot of irrigation if the water holds out.

    I lost the people who should have been doing this, on their first day ( nobody's fault - a family emergency ). So I'm really in need as soon as you appear...I'd be around a lot of the time to deal with work etc, but you can live as alone or visited as you like. It's a brilliant situation for a hermit, or a couple taking time out, or even a small group meeting up.

  • Hébergement


    You'll have the farmhouse - off grid and basic. So that means 12v solar electricity to charge phones/laptops and a few lights at night; bucket baths not showers; recycled furniture; a simple kitchen. But on the other hand, hammocks, a plunge pool, excellent shade trees, a river to swim nearby, chance to do any experimental building / art / agriculture you've always wanted to try; masses of books.

    And about once a week you get to the village house ( the village is 20 minutes walk away) for a hot shower, washing machine, 240v electricity...

    You can get to the village by a lunchtime bus three days a week 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 ' off grid and watering' . Thank for reading to the end !
