+++ WE DONT NEED for this year 2017 +++ WE LET KNOW IF NEEDED For 2018 +++

We are a couple early 40's with a lovely dog and a 20 years old daughter who is studying in Italy. We left France 10 years ago to start a new life in Italy and then in south of Spain. We bought 4 years ago a big Finca in Costa Del sol that we completely fixed, reformed and decorated by respecting its andalusian character and environment. It was hard work but worth it as the location is stunning, a place in the countryside with panoramic view over sea and mountains. (Only 5mn driving from unspoilt beaches and seaside town Torre Del Mar, 30mn from Malaga.
We used to rent the Finca for 3 years welcoming people from all over the world but we are now more likely to organise Yoga retreats and swap sometimes the villa to allow us to travel more often that's why we are looking for a SERIOUS COUPLE with really valuable skills and GOOD level of ENGLISH for ++ AT LEAST 3 MONTHS ++ EXTENDABLE 3 MONTHS MORE IF POSSIBLE to help us to take care, to maintain and restore, to clean and welcome guests in our Finca and flat in Malaga.
The Cortijo that you’ll see in the pictures is pretty big and is divided in 5 independents buildings with rounds walls and several individual and partly hidden lounge spaces all located on a large terrace of 750 m˛ totally contained by walls. The whole property is around 2.200 m2 plot.

General Tasks :
-Housekeeping and looking after of our lovely dog when we are abroad
-Cleaning the house and flat in Malaga
-Gardening and pool
-Building and general maintenance

Flexible schedule as you can do more one day depending of obvious Priority.

We enjoy hosting self-motivated, respectful, energetic and positive people adaptable to tasks, good level of English A couple willing to jump in an unique experience in Andalusia for at least 3 months.
++Man very handy with house maintenance experiences are essential.

In return, we offer the couple to live in one of the building of the Cortijo with stunning view (a lovely 60m2 independent studio fully- equipped with air conditioning / heating -system, washing machine, television, terrace with barbecue with view over mangos y avocados fields) one bedroom with king size bed, a room with wardrobe/ office and bathroom with toilet sink and shower
We could let one extra bedroom for family or friends visit for short stay.
