We live in a large rural house in Los Vélez in Almería province with our rescue dog, Scobi. Last year we took on a big house with a huge garden that was totally neglected but is now being tamed and taking shape. Our native language is English but one of us is also fluent in Spanish. We enjoy walking in the countryside with the dog, gardening, socialising and getting to know new people. Both of us enjoy cooking and will ensure whoever comes to work for us is warmly welcomed, treated with respect and provided with good quality food.

Vélez Rubio is a unique Spanish mountain town with a vibrant feel and welcoming people. We have travelled extensively and love to share stories and experiences with others. We are happy to help you with your English if you need this.
Looking for help with further improvements to the garden and some internal painting and decorating. If you are any good at building things, such as external pallet or concrete furniture this would be a bonus too.
We will provide food and lodging in return for your help.

You will have your own double bedroom with mountain views and share two bathrooms with us. You will have access to all shared areas of the house including the lounge, dining area, kitchen the garden and swimming pool (July to September). We will buy the food. You can help yourself to breakfast and snacks. If you enjoy cooking, we can take turns cooking lunch and evening meals and eat together. If you choose to go out to eat you will need to finance this yourself.
There is lots to see and do in the area. Ideally you will have your own transport, but this is not essential as the town centre is within walking distance (35 minutes). Lots of natural beauty right on the doorstep and a national park 20 minutes drive away. It is approximately 1 hours drive to the coast (Mojacar, Águilas, Verá), 30 minutes to Lorca and an hour and a half to Almería City. Velez Rubio is on the ALSA bus route and therefore has good connections to and from all major cities and airports.

Internet is stable and reliable, due to rural location we receive 20mb download and 2mb upload speeds.
Plenty of space for vans and campervans on site. One hookup available.
Yes, but be aware that our dog may take a little while to properly socialise with other animals until he gets to know them. Please discuss with us first if you would like to bring a pet. Pevious Workaway visitors have stayed with dogs and cats and this worked out fine once Scobi got to know them.
