    During February and March we will mainly be looking for someone with labouring skills and experience to help build a bassa or bolsa (water storage unit), roofing an old barn, and renovating the old house.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We are located in a beautiful region of Catalonia, surrounded by historic medieval towns, close to beaches and next to the river Ebre. The local train station has a direct line to Reus, Tarragona and Barcelona, and there is a local bus station to local towns such as the Delta d'Ebre. There are many nature spots close-by for bird and nature enthusiasts where they can watch kingfishers, herons, vultures, cormorants, eagles, wild boars, deer, mountain goats and interesting reptiles. The river Ebre attracts many fishermen because of the giant catfish and carp. The local towns are renowned for producing quality wines and olive oil and seasonal fruits. The towns host numerous traditional festivals throughout spring and summer. It is a relaxing way of life, working on future nature projects planned for the land. As a family we are interested in nature, art, writing, quilting, music and animals. We need someone who can drive and has some experience with care of the elderly. We might be able to offer a longer stay for the right person.
