  • Description


    We have a town house in the centre of the town of Órgiva AND we are starting to
    build and create a new garden.

    The majority of the help needed will be based outside on the land but still there may
    be odd jobs in the house.

    We have two dogs, two cats and (hopefully) four tortoises!

    We ask our helpers to work 5 hours per day 5 days a week in exchange for board and lodging (good food and great accommodation).

    We have had helpers from all parts of the world for more than 10 years and are very used to enjoying their help and company. We are very sociable and our house always enjoys plenty of visitors and you are always included in the activities. We work hard but enjoy life too!

    The property (known as ‘La Parra’) is a two story town house, refurbished 2021, with a large
    garden of close to 2000m2 including a swimming pool and tennis court.

    We are totally redesigning the garden which includes a lot of pruning, digging, planting, laying
    (Paths not eggs!) and building ….. and so plenty to do.

    The pool hasn’t been used for 10 years and needs cleaning out and re-painting (providing we
    have now leaks.

    Our house is now in the centre of Órgiva, a very typical Spanish rural town BUT with a long history of welcoming travelers from all around the world.

    Plenty of bars (with free tapas here!!!), shops, banks and a weekly market including a great craft market as well.

    As we are in The Valley of the Alpujarra we are in the middle of the mountains and there are lots of walks and hiking available. Plus of course we have both the Mediterranean (southwards) and the city of Granada (northwards) less than an hours drive away.
