We are a couple who have been running a holiday business in southern Spain for the last fifteen years, but are now planning to retire and spend more time in the UK. We are looking for a couple to care for our property and animals ( doves and fish) whilst we are away.
Our property is situated in inland Granada province, midway between the cities of Granada and Malaga. Our nearest village, Zagra has bars, restaurants and shops and is 17km north of the larger town of Loja. There is very detailed information on our ( need a couple to look after our mini village of seven properties in total, to enjoy the facilities it has (gym, wifi, large pool, abundant wildlife, walks and tranquillity) and to care for our animals. The ability to speak some Spanish is desirable as is a knowledge of gardening. The right people will have a can do attitude to maintenance and fixing any problems.
We are looking for a cheerful and proactive couple who will make the most of this opportunity and enjoy and respect our home and its beautiful setting. They will act as hosts for the rental business and be paid on a per booking basis. The business is ticking over at the moment and we typically get around 20 bookings a year, meaning that the the hosts earn around 2000 euros but can increase this if they choose to run the bar and provide catering. This is an ideal opportunity for anyone who wants to experience this kind of business.
- Birds: We have 8 white doves who are fed twice a day and require a simple care regime.
- Fish: Outdoors we have a small pond in our courtyard garden stocked with goldfish who need feeding once a day but only when active. During the colder months they must not be fed. The pond may need topping up with water occasionally, but apart from that they are low maintenance, not needing walks or to be entertained.
