We are an Irish couple living in the Garrotxa for 10 years. We temporarily came but the beauty and quality of life of the area has convinced us to make a home here. We have 2 young children aged 4 and 6. My partner works full time in IT while I try to manage the running of the property. We have 3 vacational apartments
While here you are going to live in a place full of culture. Nearby you can see some beautiful medieval towns including Besalu and Girona (public bus or other means necessary)
Work is all the dependent on the time of year. So we are looking for someone to do a little bit of general maintenance for us including some varnishing, cleaning, looking after pool and jacuzzi and some gardening.
Its not too much of a worry if you don't have a strong skillset in any of these but we value work ethic a lot and a willingness to learn. Naturally if you have any building, plumping or electrical skills you might be able to help us further. Any tree surgeons or people with strong garden skills out there would be very welcome as well.
We also periodically spring clean our apartments and in July and August we require one day a week of cleaning. So if you like cleaning please let us know
Over the next few months we are embarking on tiling in our new Summer house so if you know how to tile let us know. We might do a small toilet refurbishment also involving a bit of tiling and small plumbing work if we find suitable person.
We are looking for people with good work ethic, who can work unsupervised,, take initiative and importantly are responsible for working agreed hours.
This is an old Catalan farmhouse located in Sales de Llierca in the mountains that has been converted into 4 apartments. We live with our 2 young children and rent out the other apartments all year around. Our intention is that those coming to stay with us will either stay in one of these apartments or in a wooden house . We can discuss accommodation options further if you are interested in coming and staying with us.
Since we are pretty busy ourselves with Siobhan working an untypical working day leaving me to work around the house and look after the kids in the evening we hope that anyone staying with us can look after themselves. We will give you an allowance to buy food during your stay. Of course we are always here to help and give advice.
You can do some lovely walks from the house or visit the local rock pools during the warmer days. We have 2 bikes here that will allow you explore further. If you are over 25 we may be able to loan you a car.
The nearest village is Tortella and is walkable. If you want to explore further you will have to use public transport. We will drop you by car to the bus if you wish to do this.
