  • Beschreibung


    We are a Dutch family living in the Spanish Pyrenees. We have 3 children aged 6 to 11. Almost 12 years ago we came here and started building our own house. We rely a lot on nature. A lot of our food comes from our garden and what our animals give us. The house is almost fully solar powered. We use solar power for both electricity (there´s no connection to the grid) and as the primary source of heating. We have some animals like chickens, sheep, dogs, rabbits and ducks, cats, pidgens, goose and horses. 6 years ago we've bought some land which we cultivate. We are growing all kinds of vegetables, sell them at local markets and to some restaurants with the logo 'venta de proximitat'. We also use some of our products to make marmalade and preserves. regular working houres are from 8:00 - 13:00 monday, tuesday, thursday, friday and saturday. Wednesday (except one hour of feeding animals in the morning) and sunday are the days off.

    We have 1 of 2 places for working in the garden and with animals.

    From may to September we also have 1 place for helping out with the kids. This is with an aupair-contract and includes payment according to the aupair-law for spain. For this we are looking for someone who can stay a longer period, speak catalan, spanish, dutch or english on a good level. And you will need a valid driverslicence.
