Hi, We live about an hour South of Alicante in a beautiful valley, but only 15 minutes from the coast known as the Mar Manor,by car, 10 minutes from there is the mediterranean sea. A 15-minute bike ride finds you in the Murcian Mountains with beautiful views, walks and bike trails, also the beautiful and historic cities of Murcia, Cartagena and the beautiful, La Manga. 30 minutes away by car, is the lovely town of San Pedro where there is a big nature park with a huge variety of migrating birds including Flamingos and old Roman salt pans along with the World famous Mud Baths where in summertime, people come from all over Europe to take advantage of the therapeutic benefits of the mud and cover themselves with it, then wash it off in the sea, leaving your skin lovely and soft.

We have a mountain bike for your use in your spare time. WiFi is also for your use.

We provide a very comfortable 4 berth caravan for our helpers which allows them their own `space` and privacy. It is well equipped and comfortable.

We need helpers who feel comfortable being on their own as we only have one helper at a time and we do have a busy life, which means that most times helpers need to look after themselves and enjoy their own company! However, we always feed our helpers very well, as all our reviews will vouch for, and whenever possible we take our helpers out with us for `Menu del Dias`!

JOBS TO BE DONE



Weeding and pruning and general gardening.

Painting


General maintenance.



We are looking for someone comfortable with 6 hours work per day on only 5 days per week.

We are animal lovers and have 5 dogs and 1 cat. all of whom are rescue animals, The dogs have the run of the land which is their `playground`! so obviously you must like animals. The dogs look after themselves apart from feeding time in the evening and we tend to that ourselves. Please note our dogs will not be required to be looked after.

The lovely 4 berth caravan is fully equipped, Breakfast is provided and lunch, but dinner is cooked for you in the main house. We can cater for vegetarian or meat eaters but unfortunately NOT vegans.
There is WIFI for your use, with your own computer, a swimming pool and a mountain bike for your use too. Minimum stay 1 week and up to 6 months.
