We are a creative couple from London, well technically one Austrian and one British, and are working on our dream of creating a not-for-profit artistic centre here. One of us is a furniture designer and the other a playwright and director. We speak English, German, Hebrew and Spanish, and a little bit of all sorts of other languages, as we've travelled extensively.
We run a vegetarian/vegan household, have two puppies and one cat.
We can offer a private en-suite room, share some of our home-cooked delicious vegan/vegetarian meals, great company as well as loads of space to do things.
We are located in the middle of the Sea of Olives with no neighbours for miles, but we are by a main road (so it can get quite noisy sometimes) just outside Úbeda, a UNESCO world heritage site and home to a buzzing community of artisan craftspeople and a lot of cultural events, which is only 10 minutes by car.
The whole area offers loads of cultural activities, as well as plenty of options to explore nature in the two national parks nearby. We're also pretty close to Granada and the coast.
We are not near public transport, but we can help with local transport when we are available. We will also arrange at least two weekly trips into town for all your shopping needs. Walking to Úbeda up a steep hill would take over an hour.

We are in the process of modernising a 200-year-old farm building. You will potentially get to interact with our visiting artists from different countries and cultures. Our background is in furniture design and theatre, we are always happy to share anything to do with art or design, as well as our love for cooking.
**We have a last minute opening for someone to help us with gardening. **
Help at our non-profit art residency and enjoy the sun and creative living.
We're looking for volunteers to take on one of the following tasks:
* Gardening/DIY - We have about 9000 sqm of Mediterranean gardens that need to be maintained, as well as general maintenance, DIY and and some painting and decorating.
* Cleaning - We have two large buildings with 20+ rooms that need regular cleaning and maintaining.
The overall help will be no more than 20 hours per week. You're free to do whatever you like in your free time, including access to studio spaces and ateliers when not used by our resident artists.
We can offer you a private room with its own shower and toilet, access to shared kitchen, some delicious meals, as well as loads of space to do things and access to a swimming pool during the day time.
Úbeda (our nearest town - 10min by car) is a UNESCO world heritage site and the whole area offers loads of cultural activities, as well as plenty of options to explore nature in the two national parks nearby. We're also pretty close to Granada and the coast.

We are digital nomad friendly. Used to be ourselves for several years. Internet is ok, but can be a bit slow at times as we are in the middle of the countryside.

Do note that we have two puppies, a cat and there are a lot of wild animals on the premises (such as snakes, lizards, owls, birds, etc.)
