You can use most of whats already in the kitchen,
like spices, dry food (lentils, beans,rice etc.) tea, soap ......
I hope the organic vegetable garden will give you
some veggies and the hens eggs.
There will be enough animal food,( in stock)

You like being at home,
Like your own company surrounded by the animals.

Like peace and quiet.
The dogs love to go for walks,

Hola y bienvenidos !!!

My cortijo(small farmhouse)is 150+ years old. Situated in the mountain 20 car from Almuñecar, Mediterranean Costa Tropical
Bought this place(a ruin) 26 years ago.
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.
Unfortunately I'm having trouble with my 2 hands since the last year and need more help then before.Yes.... a bit frustrating, but I get to know many nice helpers.... !!!
I speak Scandinavian,English and Spanish.
I'm looking for 1 man or 1 couple from approx.30 years old,comfortable with 5-6 hours work per day, 5 days a week.
Usually from 1-2 weeks stay, sometimes more.
You like a peaceful lifestyle and you like your one company!(You do not have to be entertained....)

You are not afraid of manual labour,
you like working.
You are practical,
responsible and strong....
