  • Description



    I live in Southern Spain (Las Alpujarras) in a very diverse, multicultural area. My big hound Bran and I try to live as sustainably as possible on my large piece of land. I live off grid in the countryside but within walking distance (10minutes) of the nearby town with all conveniences available. I am on solar power with internet access and back up generator if necessary. I love being surrounded by nature and live a fairly quiet life working the land, reading and practicing yoga. As I am vegetarian it would be a bonus if you appreciate this so we can share cooking and eating lunch together. I will provide food for your breakfast and evening meal which you can prepare yourself.

    The area I live is very diverse culturally, with people from many parts of the world mingling with the local Spanish community. Its a great place to learn or improve your Spanish language skills and observe some traditional Spanish ways of living.

  • Aide


    Ideally I require a couple or two people to help with the vegetable patch, irrigation of the land, general land maintenance and occasional petsitting for my large dog. Also help with cooking and shopping would be much appreciated. I am quite flexible about work hours and some days we may work more or less depending on ongoing projects and the season. In July and August I may be travelling and may require a couple to look after my dog, irrigate the land and do general maintenance jobs.

    You would have use of a casita (stone cottage) with separate shower hut and compost toilet. Power is from a solar system with a back up generator for the winter months. Basic internet is available.

    Cooking will be shared activity for lunch on work days. Food will be provided for breakfast and evening meals and non-work days for your own preparation. Occasionally if there are more than two non- work days in a week you may need to provide your own food.
