We are Jose and Sara and living in a small stone house, which is situated on a hill surrounded by ancient terraces with lot of active, traditional farming around. Jose is a mountain guide in his own travel company, doing responsible tourism in these mountains. Sara right now is doing a mountaineering course Monday to Friday. But her big dream is to live completely independent growing all the food in her own garden. We do all ecological in our garden and we grow our own seeds from last year harvest. We set as our direction to live self-sufficient in harmony with nature, getting energy from our solar panels and water from the spring. We live with our 2 cats, 8 chickens and our dog Bobby. We also started 2017 a time bank in our valley and we love to tell you about our project. In our free time we do music, cook nice things, sara makes bread, Jose goes climbing or mountain biking. We do play a bit of guitar and ukelele, so musicians more than welcome as well.
Because we are not staying right now in all week in our house we are looking for a person or a couple to care for our house, our animals (give them food, cleaning the chickens place, walk the dog) and watering the garden. We are searching for responsible people who are able to work independently complete the tasks given (no matter much when and how), Basically, you decide to work mornings or afternoons) and to enjoy the silence in the nature. . Town is 5 minutes away from the house, with street vegetable amrkt twice a week and 2 bakeries, and several bars and restaurans. There is also a bus service daily to the beautiful coastal town of Villajoyosa. Also you need to know that this is a rural house, off grid: We live with solar energy so after a few cloudy days we might not have much energy, ( dont worry shower runs with gas ) if you want to heaten up the house, you are expected to collect and chop your own wood ( again dont get put off, this is the Mediterranean and the house and rooms are very comfortable and very well insulated) .
We are friendly, empathic and easy going couple. Being mountain leaders we are very used to be with people, so you are not going to find a monster in us !
