Love being outside and have experience of caring for horses? Love being busy and can work unsupervised? If you are looking for a lovely warm home (with spa pool) we would love to hear from you. Ideally we would like someone to join us for a planned period of 6 weeks minimum (a mutual decision to stay can be made after being with us for a weeks 'trial' to make sure everyone is happy!).

Accommodation is provided in the on-site residence - a lovely warm, beautifully renovated, 5-bdrm & 2 bathroom villa with the shift-working owners and their two dogs. Full board is provided together with own bedroom, bathroom and use of WIFI, Sky TV and spa pool.
