  • Description


    My name is Faye. I always had a dream to purchase a bit of land, live off-grid, organically grow fruits and vegetables, and create a beautiful little community for nature and music lovers alike. Well now I have the land, I'm realising the reality is that I have a whole world of things to do before I get there!

    There are so many terraces that are in disrepair around the land, so anyone with experience in dry stone walling would be most welcome. I also need help with general gardening and landscaping, with maybe a bit of painting thrown in.

    I have space for park-up (with long term option) in exchange for just 7.5-10 hours per week volunteering, and the rest of the time is yours to do with as you wish. So this could suit someone who works part time or wants more time to explore the area, but still have a base to come back to. Access to compost toilette, outdoor shower and outdoor kitchen.

    I also have a spare room and campervan available from September, which is full board (accommodation + food + drinks) in exchange for 4hrs help a day, 5 days a week.

    Enjoy the nature of the surrounding river valley and an active part of the beautiful Rio Chico neighbourhood. This is a vibrant alternative community, with tapas bars, shops and restaurants, wellness classes etc, all accessible without needing a car.

    This space is often super chilled, but we host the occasional BBQ or jam nights. 4:20 friendly & musicians most welcome!

  • Hébergement


    I have a camper van with private terrace in a lovely location amongst olive trees, with access to outdoor kitchen and compost toilette. We are constructing and outdoor shower, but in the meantime, there is a shower to use in house. Bedding/towels provided.

    I also have a spare room with twin beds at the side of the house with separate entrance.

    Space to park-up for van dwellers and camping options (easily accessible by road + 200m track). Long term options for park-up available also.

    The area is great for walkers/cyclists (if you can handle the hills!) and there is a yoga centre next door. Orgiva town centre is only 15 minutes walk away. The Sierra Nevada mountains where you can Skii in winter and Granada city is 1 hour by car. Nearest airport Granada or Malaga, direct busses leave at 3pm from Malaga bus station to Orgiva. The busses are more regular and faster from Granada. Beaches of Motril and Salobrena are only a 40 minutes drive away.
