General description

  • Secondary home
Rustic, yet stylish and comfortable cortijo in a little mountain town in Andalucia. The house has a garden on seven terraces plus a patio area, and is 45 minutes drive from some beautiful beaches. There are many mountain walks to be done from straight out of the front door!

Needs and Animals

  • My property
  • Big garden
  • Vegetable patch
I'm seeking a conscientious and tidy house sitter to look after my house and garden in a small Andalusian mountain town from April or May 2021.

The house is rustic but stylish and comfortable, and the garden is on seven small terraces plus a patio, which need weeding, mulching, watering and pruning. The olive tree may need harvesting in the autumn.

I'd like you to come the day before I leave, so I can show you what I need.

There are two small supermarkets and two butchers, as well as ironmongers and a multipurpose shop. The village is in the Filabres mountains, and there are gorgeous mountain walks to be done, while the coast is around 45 mins drive away with some beautiful beaches. The Cabo de Gata natural park is just over one hour's drive away, too, with some wild beaches. For more culture, Almeria city is just over one hour's drive away, too - and Granada can be reached in just over two hours.

From Sunday 2021

firm dates

Although I am a Spanish resident, my plan for 2021/2 is to spend roughly three months at a time in the UK, popping back to Spain for short breaks. The first UK visit will be four months, however - unless I stay in Spain an extra month until 4 May 2021. This is yet to be confirmed. I'd be interested in offering three-month rolling stays - but all can be discussed nearer the time.
