Housesit 8 – 20 January in Spanish village in Almeria SPAIN 3. cats 2 dogs
We are looking for housesitters to step into our home and take care of our family of 5 pets (2 small dogs and 3 cats) all well trained and easy to care for. We live in a very small village called El Marchal de Anton Lopez in Almeria, with a cafe bar, the Tapas is good and worth trying.The beach of Aguadulce is 20 mins by car. The nearest supermarket is down the mountain 15 mins by car, it’s a big Carrefour also there is a petrol station, clothes shop, decathlon and what we call a ‘Chino’ a bit like a huge Pound Stretcher. There is also a Chinese restaurant and the menu choice is vast so a great range of things to eat.
There are restaurants in the next village of Enix 10 mins by car, a bakers and of course more bars!
The Doctor comes to el Marchal every Wednesday and during the week we have a bread van, fish van and veg van you can hear them tooting 5 mins before they get here!
Marechal is a hilly village surrounded by olive and almond groves and wild herbs, so superb for walkers. There is also a disused mine which has lovely views and a nice walk too often spotting the wild goats very rarely wild deer.
The house has 3 bedrooms a garden plus huge sunny terraces. Windows are all double glazed with 2 bathrooms (showers no bath). The kitchen has everything you could need and a lovely dining room off from it and a beautiful sunny verandah. Serious cyclists, mountain climbers, ramblers and/ artists would all love it here.
