PLEASE NOTE: Next available


Available for any amount of time between 25th July 2015 and 1st of September 2015. No minimum stay requirements, come and have some fun for a few days (or more) and enjoy some of the best views of the south of Spain.

In return for 4-6 hrs per day (between breakfast and lunch, for example), 5 days per week, we are offering:
- Accommodation: It is pretty basic - Tent/shared accommodation (the main property is dry and clear inside, just not tiled, plastered, but can be used too) - on the positive side, there is running hot water for showers, washing machine, and a fully equiped kitchen area!
- 3 meals per day (can cater for just about any dietary requirements - vegetarian, vegan, meat lovers!)
- Afternoons and two days free each week
- Collection/Drop off from Malaga Airport/Train/Coach station
- Practice of Spanish and/or English (fluent in both) - also speak some French
- 1.5km from the main village of Torrox (typical white Andalusian village)
- 10 min car journey from the beach (I can offer lifts up and down during free time)
- Beautiful views of the mediterranean, Sierra Nevada mountains, and even the mountains of Africa if the conditions are right
- An internet connection. This is not fast, but usable!

Where to start? Twelve years ago, we bought a plot of land in the beautiful area of Torrox, 40km east of Malaga, on the Costa del Sol. We are in the process of trying to build a house, with associated 'gardening' works. We started it all those years ago now, and what with time/money restraints it has been a stop/start project. On the finca there is a small 'workers' building, which has a shower/toilet (new), a bedroom and fully equipped kitchen area. The main property has the structure completed, i.e. concrete pillars, main floor structures, external walls, and a roof. We need help with getting the external area completed, so are looking for:
- General building labourers
- Rendering - does not have to be perfect! ;)
- Fencing - nothing complicated
- Concrete mixing - no experience required!
- Block/brick laying
- Leveling of earth/rocks/debris
- Painting - both metal and rendered walls
- Other assorted jobs
- As the project progresses other jobs will come up...

I am easygoing and flexible, always up for a laugh. Whilst there is some heavyish jobs, there are plenty of lighter jobs, and it is a relaxed and fun atmosphere.

Thanks for looking!
