Hello all, we are looking for someone(s) to look after our off grid eco house, our dog and our 4 cats....they need food and a few cuddles to keep them happy otherwise they are just out and about in and around our smallholding.
We are located at just under 1400mtrs in the Natural Park of the Sierra Nevada mountains, with stunning views over La Alpujarra region, looking down on the nearst large town called Orgiva and we also have views out to sea and on a clear day to Africa.
Although not essential, someone(s) who has some understanding of green tech and living might be beneficial. We run electricity from solar panels (so no high current devices can be used), so normal low consumption household appliances are not a problem (computers etc. are no problem) ........a back-up generator with battery chargers is also available if needed.
All water is untreated spring water and the house is plumbed and wired as any normal house.
The house has internet, shower, bath, t.v. woodburner, and one portable butane gas fire.
The property is on the main road into the mountains but this road is not completely asphalt. The nearest village, with a small shop and 2 bars, is 3.5 Kms away by road..less by foot..so a car is essential (easy to hire from Malaga airport or it may be possible to borrow a small van we have...discussion needed).
If you want peace, good views and clean mountain air maybe you could help us have a Xmas holiday, look after our furry friends and enjoy what we have been developing for almost 20 years.
Finally it is important to say that this is not a location suitable for small children as the mountain terraces have steep drops and we have an unprotected reservoir/swimming pool just outside the back door. :)
