About the workproject

We need 1 volunteer

Hello, we are Tina and Tom, we live in a big house with stables, together with four horses, a dog and a cat!
We need help please, from now with all sorts, from gardening, painting and general maintenance. The house is currently let to various holiday makers, so there are the change overs to deal with until October too.
Therefore, we live in the converted stable block and so would you.
The views here are stunning, and the location is great. The goats pass twice a day, giving a taste of the real Spain, yet we are minutes from the lovely village of La Cala de Mijas with its stunning beaches.
We are good cooks, so there is always a nice meal to be had in the evening, plus we supply breakfast and a sandwich at lunchtime of course.
The quarters for helpers are quite private, with own bathroom away from the main house, but you need to be comfortable with horses nearby.
We need about 25 hours per week help please, offers welcome, we look forward to meeting you!
Best regards,
Tina & Tom
