  • Descrição


    Hello, my name is Eva, and I require help with tasks such as painting, moving hay for the horses, cleaning up after them, repairing fences, weeding, and assisting in building an outdoor kitchen.

    I reside in the scenic hillside between El Campello/San Juan Playa and Jijona, approximately 20 minutes away from Alicante, Costa Blanca. I am surrounded by rescue animals from my legal non-profit rescue centre, including horses, dogs, and cats, as well as various wild animals in the surrounding nature, such as birds, geckos, and wild pigs.

    I am specifically looking for a minimum of two handy individuals, regardless of gender, friends, or a couple, who possess skills in areas such as electrics, plumbing, carpentry, and metalwork. The tasks will involve constructing the outdoor kitchen, repairing and renovating fences, laying floors, extensive weeding, painting, and weekly manure removal. Please note that assistance with pruning and planting trees on the land will only be required during the fall and winter seasons.

    If you are not accustomed to physical tasks, I kindly request that you refrain from applying.
    It is important to emphasize that while you are welcome to interact with and show affection to the animals, you will not be directly involved in caring for the rescued animals as their care is automated and organized.

    Please be aware that our living arrangements are remote and off-grid, relying on solar energy for hot water and electricity. We value tranquillity and our connection with nature. I work full-time online and teach several hours per day via the Internet. As I am occupied with work, I prefer couples/2 friends who can keep each other company during my absence. Additionally, having a group of three is more efficient for many tasks than a group of two.
    During your stay, your self-contained cottage house will be equipped with all the necessary amenities and a small swimming pool.
    The initial stay is one week to assess compatibility; if suitable, it can be extended up to max. two weeks.

    Please thoroughly read my profile before contacting me. Thank you for your understanding.

    A dog and or a cat are welcome if they are social to other animals, well behaved and flea free. One of my rescues already got bitten by a workawayers' dog and once I have been left with a house filled with fleas by a workawayer in 2020. As you can imagine, I never ever want any repitition of that. The land is fenced off.
