Hi we own a property just outside rioja near Gador in Spain about 14klm from Almeria with a little 1bed cortija on the grounds we are looking for someone or a couple who would like to spend a month or two or even 3 looking after our property while we are away from it you would full use of the facilities pool during the season and their are a selection of fruit trees orange, lemon, grape vine and other fruit trees all we ask is you to look after the grounds water the garden and grow your own veg if you want we would pop over now and then just for a break for about month at time 

We would expect a contribution towards the utility bills or electric and water 

Under the new rules coming into force from January 2021 you will be able to stay in Spain for 90days out of every 180 

If you are interested and want more info please just contact me and we can go from there

Good Morning, My wife and I are looking in the area to re-locate from Scotland. We are coming to view properties next week. My wife is a horticulturalist and I work in hospitality (chef) and am currently furloughed and it is quite likely I will not return to my current position until next spring. I am interested in exploring your requirements as it would be beneficial on both sides as we have experience in looking after property and gardens and your proposition would offer a base to find a new home which would be fantastic. We are professional people not looking for a good time but serious about what we do.

Good morning from a sunny Dumfries and Galloway! I currently live in Scotland and have booked flights to go to Bedar on the 3rd October for almost three weeks. Partly to house hunt and assess the area etc. I've been thinking very much about house sitting for two or three months from Jan so this could be a great possibility! I am in my mid fifties, very well travelled, enjoy the arts, music, photography and writing/reading. Walking.  This past year has been incredibly tough so a very new change for me is needed hence the potential move. I can supply excellent references and would really enjoy the opportunity of doing this house sit for you.. I expect you will receive many responses but hopefully looking to hearing from you. Best regards, Amanda 🌺

Hi Amanda

We are going to be at the villa in late October for about a month if you are in Almeria the same time we could arrange to meet up and are returning again early February.

There are lots of questions and answer we both have to ask 

We are in Tenerife at the moment but by al means if you want to ask us anything and we try to answer the question

One question we would like to ask is how long would you like stay in January and would you like to return at later date, and what are your plans for future

Look forward to hear from you soon

Crawford

Hello Crawford and thanks so much for your reply. I shall be in Bedar from the 3rd October till the 21st. I shall be renting an apartment right in the village centre.   My ex partner will be with me as we still very good pals. In fact he is also considering a relocation! How far is your property from Bedar? It would certainly be good to meet if that works for you? I can offer complete flexibility on the amount of time I can stay from January, really happy to do what suits you both. Is the house rural it close to a village? Does it have heating/little woodburner etc etc? Your both very welcome to come over for lunch one day whilst we are in Bedar and go through things if that would be helpful. With many thanks again, Amanda
