We have a Cortijo, 1.5km from the town of Ugijar - 500m of track but easily walkable.

Our house is solar run with a back up generator, but we do have mod cons - like a 50'' tv, fridge freezer, washing machine, laptop, internet etc etc.

Ugijar has everything you could need - medical centre, shops, banks, post office, bars, restaurants, petrol station.

Ugijar has a market twice a month on the 5th and 20th and fiestas throughout the year -
along with neighbouring towns of Cadiar, Valor, Yegen and Berja, to name but a few.

Granada and Almeria can be reached by bus from Ugijar.

We have dogs, chickens, a pig, a sheep, love birds, Rosellas, Koi and gold fish - along with 535 grape vines (Cabernet Suavingon, Merlot and Syrah), which we have made our first batch of wine last year - second batch this year. 10 Almond trees, 3 Olive trees - and overgrown land that we wish to cut back and do something with.

We are looking for a single person or couple who would like to stay with us while visiting the area and help out around the place - nothing heavy, just ground clearing, painting, weeding, cleaning the animals, pruning, depending on the time of year.

Ideally we would like someone for 2 weeks but are open to discuss other lengths of time.

It would not be hard hard work - in summer we have siestas every day.

4-5 hours a day with breakfast and an evening meal provided - with wine or beer ofcourse!

4-5 days a week depending on work load - if you wanted to do more work some days to get more days of that wouldnt be a problem.

We aim to be flexible to make the arrangement work for both parties.

We have a caravan on site so you can have your own space (no shower - but you can obviously use the one in the house).

We do have internet and English TV via internet.
