  • Descrição


    English female in my 50s living in an old finca with my own land and various animals. Im just slowly making progress and living as self-sufficiently as possible, and would love to host someone who would be willing and able to help out with daily tasks which include gardening, animal care, woodwork and general maintenance.

    I have been restoring a ruin to a working finca after decades of neglect. You´ll hopefully learn skills and a way of life that is slowly disappearing, planting and grafting, harvesting olives and almonds, making wine, keeping chickens and a kitchen garden, dry stone walling . You'll be able to practice different languages and get to know lots of local dishes and quaint cooking traditions. I have worked in many different areas and love music, art, history, philosophy and anthropology.

  • Ajuda


    help with work on the finca which would include simple construction jobs, strimming, some chain saw work, painting etc
    5 hours a day with option to do more for pocket money. It would probably suit a strong male with some building experience but im happy to host anyone energetic enough to do different outdoor tasks .Driver an advantage, it´s a 25 min walk to town although im often popping in and out and can give lifts .

    This area is great for cyclists and hikers,the natural park is 5 mins away and of course the beaches are about 40 mins. Malaga city is amazing and obviously worth a visit, and the village is very lively with a buzzing international community all year round,plenty of bars,shops, a gym, yoga centre etc. Bird-watchers have a field day here. If you ride you could use the horses at your own risk.

    To get here there is a Bus from Malaga or Torre del Mar to the village of Competa then we are a 10 min drive or 30 min walk.

    I have horses,dogs,cats and chickens and olive trees so no good for people with allergies! I eat some meat, preferably home grown, and some fish but mainly my own vegetables and eggs.
