Hello my names Robert and I have a villa on the sunny Costa del Sol with spectacular views set in 2,500 square metres of landscaped gardens in the mountains overlooking the Mediterrean but only 800 metres from the attractive old white casas village of Sayalonga. The property has olive and almond trees, nispero, yuca's and an amazing selection of giant agavea and cactus. I am upgrading the interior of the house and the surrounding gardens and land and I am looking for people to help me. There will be landscaping and gardening, wall building, creation of path ways, carpentry, plumbing and electrical work, plastering, painting, etc. I also need general help around the house with cooking and cleaning and shopping to pick up supplies. There is a bit of everything needing done around here so work wise we probably have something to suit almost everybody. I have a small 4WD Kubota tractor and a trailer to help make the tasks easier around here. You would be doing 25 hours work a week and at the moment we are working Monday to Friday with the weekends free. While you are working we supply 2 meals a day but at other times you have the use of our fully equipped kitchen for cooking and preparing your own meals. The villa has a guest house with its own entrance to the rear of the villa. It has a bedroom and a spacious bathroom with a shower. There are also 2 bedrooms with en-suite bathroom in the main house. You also have the use of a large roof terrace which gives 360 degree panoramic views of the mountains and the sea. Sayalonga has a population of 850 in the village and 1200 when you include houses in the surrounding area. It has three good bars/ restaurants. There is a local bus from Sayalonga which goes down to the beach(15 minutes away) and Torre del Mar for only 1.27 euro) and also to the Malaga Bus Station. This is an area of outstanding natural beauty on the edge of The Natural Park and is popular with walkers, and cyclists who like to challenge the mountains. There are very inexspensive trips available by bus to Granada and GibraItar and other places. I am originally from Edinburgh Scotland.
