  • Description


    I am young at heart. 76 year old. with a two bedroomed Finca. house/ in the mountains Above Alicante, Spain, Along with Alisa , a long time friend, we have decide to relocate to the country for a more off grid existence. We have a very active lifestyle centred around our horses that are stables with us , along with our growing family of cats and dogs. The plan is to bring in many other animals. So workaways would have to be animal lovers, and some of the work would involve the day to day care of them.
    At the moment we are carrying out renovation work in the finca, mainly painting, but some heavier work would be involved. We have started setting up a eco vegetable garden, of which we have limited knowledge, so someone with experience of this would be a great bonus..
    Also experience with horses, would be beneficial, in fact may suit a couple. One to assist me with the renovation work and one to assist Alisa , with the animals and gardening.
    There is a double bedroom available, The finca is quite isolated, nearest village, 10 min in a car, Alicante town with its lovely beaches, is 40 min drive away. There are buses between Jijona and Alicante. We are surrounded by beautiful mountains, and is perfectly situated for all outdoor pursuits . Please do not be put off by my poor reply rating, from when I was in Marbella, I was out of touch for some time.

    You will be surrounded by true Spanish culture, where you can practice or learn Spanish, with the work hours you will have ample time to explore the area. . Depending on your ability, it is possible do take in some horse riding . In fact would be a benefit . I have been a builder for many years so have a lot of knowledge to pass on. Alisas knowledge of horse care is very extensive so would be a great experience for anyone interested in owning their horse or work in that field.

    I am carrying out some refurbishment to my house It will involve some painting, But best described as an additional pair of hands. I generally work for around 4 hours a day. finishing before 1400 hrs, There maybe times when you may have to work alone. Just thought. I would try out this idea, Not keen on working alone and would give people a chance to experience the amazing experience of life in Alicante As well as a fire officer I have been a builder all my working life and have many skills to pass on. No experience required just be keen and take things as they come. It will be mostly light work so gender not important.
