We are a British couple living on our 6Ha finca near Flix in the Tarragona region of Catalunya. The finca has two houses, a studio and a pool. We farm olives and almonds, but also have fig trees on the land. We also have 3 dogs who have the freedom of the land. We are situated 8km from town, high on a hillside. The area is perfect for those who love peace and tranquillity. There are miles of tracks to explore for those who like walking, and as the farm faces west, every evening has the most amazing sunsets. The farm is off-grid, we rely on solar and wind for electricity, solar for water heating which is supplemented with electric immersion heaters, harvest rainwater for general use, but we do have an agricultural water supply to the land should we need it. We have unlimited wifi for you to use, so you can email and skype friends and family.

You will experience living off-grid, and living in a rural catalan town.
Currently looking for a workaway to help me with gardening/tidying the land, cleaning the pool etc as I have a busy couple of weeks doing other things. The ability to teach me to speak Spanish would be great.
someone with an understanding of living off-grid would be preferable, but if not you will soon learn all about living off-grid and the daily/weekly tasks it involves. If the words off-grid put you off, we have normal flushable toilets and normal showers.
English, some Spanish, very limited Catalan
There is a single bed in our house, or if you prefer, I can erect a tent somewhere on the land.
We generally need to go into town twice a week, once to fill up empty bottles with free drinking water, and a couple of times for food and to collect any post. Otherwise we tend to remain busy on the farm. If you want to travel further, the train station in Flix has 4 trains a day which go to and from Barcelona. Flix has everything you need and is a lovely town.
