We Joaquin and Carme groups in their fifties of our lives. In 2007 we bought this estate of 3.700 acres in Pago La Sierpe in Arcos de la Frontera.

The farm had a large house divided into two apartments, a main house and an apartment annex, smaller than the former owner rented to their acquaintances. Others had a large fallow field, an orchard with 200 orange trees with mine water well that supplied the house and crops, a garden between walls with a pool, a large space at the entrance of the house without landscaping and two patios shaded one internal and one external.

Weeds, snails, insects and a major oversight prevailed everywhere, including the two houses that needed urgent reform. But the place we fell in love and overcoming difficulties and fears we decided tying the blanket to the head and turn the place into a home more enjoyable and get hands-on with our own hands.

We worked as masons, painters, electricians, farmers, gardeners and gradually shaping the place so that in a few years will be a garden and house prices, both our own and the small apartment he rented to visitors.

We offer work in:

-Growing in ecological vegetable garden.
-Work in the orange trees.
-Painting
-Gardening of maintenance
-Small works of construction
-Construction of henhouse
-Houseworks

We accept help for periods of 1 week to 1 month, an average of 30 weekly, flexible hours.

The assistants will have room and own bath with heating in independent apartment. We offer three foods on the day (they can be vegetarians). We have bicycles and we can leave a car to the assistant.

We speak Catalan, Spanish, French, Italian and a minimum of English, but we prefer somebody with minimum knowledge of Spanish.
