Must be a couple and experience of hospitality would be an advantage

Our place is a 100 year old farmhouse and so a basic understanding of electrics and plumbing would be an advantage. Also some experience in hospitality  would be useful as we have a number of holiday rentals and the maintenance of 3 small swimming pools.

The house sit is to cover for 2 weeks whilst the existing long term house sitters return to the UK. It  would involve maintaining the pool, watering trees, potted plants and beds and sweeping the yard.  However we have holiday rental apartments and cottages that so would involve meeting and greeting the guests and doing the domestics involved in turning over an apartment/cottage for which we would pay the house sitter. We estimate that this could involve about 6 turnovers in the 2 weeks. The accommodation is self catering so no great demands, by the guests, on the house sitters other than a bit of advice on where to go and what to do which the owner has prepared information sheets. The owners are available 24/7 for support by ,  text and .

Located in the very Spanish village of Lubrin in Almeria. Lubrin is located 2000ft up in the Sierra de los Filabres and just 45 minutes from Mojacar on the Costa del Almeria.  The Farmhouse is set on a hilltop and surrounded by an 2 acres of terraced lawns and Olive, Almond and Pomegranate trees and is a short  5min walk to the very authentic small village which has all the amenities and most of all warm and friendly villagers

The views are truly panoramic of the surrounding village and mountains.

Utilities are free and include electricity, mains water, hot water & central heating, tele   line rental (calls at cost per itemised bill) and 6mb wireless broadband. Use of our car is also included but not fuel for personal use.  If you enjoy walking then there are wonderful walks in the hills and valleys straight out of  the main entrance If you are studying Spanish then Lubrin Pueblo is the perfect place to “practicar su español”.  If you are thinking of moving or retiring to Andalucia then this assignment would present a good opportunity to test drive living in rural Almeria.

A big bonus is an unforgettable experience of Spanish  mountain hospitality from the delightful and charming villagers of Lubrin.  

Must be a couple and be financially independent.
