  • Beschreibung


    We are a British family living in the lovely green north of Spain in Asturias. We have 9 rescued cats and 3 rescued dogs and sadly need to sell our house and move to another one since our cats keep getting run over on the lane outside our house. We are looking for somebody to help us to get the house into a suitable state to sell, it needs to be painted and we need to keep the garden tidy. If you enjoy cooking you could help with the meals too. We don't eat meat but fish sometimes, we tend to eat mostly vegan/vegetarian food.

    We are Michael, Penelope and our son Bentley who is 12. Michael is a teacher and will be on holiday in July and August when we're looking for help so between the 3 of us we should be able to progress well.

    Our house is walking distance to Villaviciosa (600m) and 9km from a lovely beach called Rodiles. There are good bus links from Villaviciosa to Ribadesella, Llanes, Gijon and Oviedo among others. Asturias is known for mountain trails and surfing. It really is a paradise here.

    Asturias is green and in places the mountains are only 15km from the beach, it's pretty stunning. We love meeting new people and have had lots of fun with Workawayers in the past. We home educate our son which former visitors have been interested to find out more about. People have also been interested in the way we live - we try to eat healthily, feed our pets healthily. We always have lots of philosophical discussions with visitors if they're up for that!
