I hope to get in touch with an adult responsible person / couple

From approx. July 7 to September 1st.
It will be a house sitting situation ....
You buy your own food.
You can use most of whats already here in the kitchen,
like spices, dry food (lentils, beans,rice etc.) tea, soap ......
I hope the organic vegetable garden will give you

Hola y bienvenidos !!!

Been living in my Cortijo for 18 years now,in peace with the countryside.
I have 3(8kg size)rescued dogs.They are good friends and good company + 1 donkey and 5 chickens 1 rooster.
The land is fenced in so the dogs are loose, but they love going for walks.....
On the land there are old olive-carob-pomegranate trees and various newly(last 14 year)planted fruit trees.
My land is situated on the mountainside/slope.
Have a fairly big plot/flat land, organic vegetable garden.
The land is organic taken care of, for 26+ years.
I consider myself easy to get along with and hard worker.I will expect the same of my helpers.
