    Beschreibung

    We are Esme and Will originally from London and our place in Aragon is an old farmhouse sitting on top of a hill with beautiful views across the campo near the town of Caspe. We discovered the house in summer of 2014 and fell in love with its elegance, surroundings and potential. The house is interesting historically as it was used by the republican airforce and resistance as headquarters during the Spanish Civil War in the fight against fascism. The house has been derelict for over 40 years and has 2.5 hectares of woods and farmland around it. We are completely off the grid, so our first tasks have been to install a solar powered electricity system, re-connect the house to the local irrigation system and install an eco-friendly sewerage system. We are currently in the process of renovating the house and barn and planning the gardens, including a vegetable garden, the planting of fruit trees, grape vines and an olive grove. We would love some help with all aspects of the house, garden, fields and woodland; but most especially plumbing, plastering and some general building tasks.

    The house is the in Aragon province of Zaragoza. The area is beautiful and unspoilt. We have amazing Spanish neighbours and friends as well as people from Holland, England who has discovered this fabulous hidden gem of an area! There are many walks, fabulous local wildlife and birds, a nearby swimming river and a lake for sailing. There are many fiestas in the local towns and opportunities to talk Spanish at the many local Spanish parties we get invited to regularly.

    We would like to invite enthusiastic volunteers (no experience required) to help with some general tasks renovating our beautiful farm house and helping with our olive grove, orchard, vines and veg garden including planting, clearing, pruning etc. We are also looking for volunteers with eco-friendly knowledge and skills, plumbing, building, carpentry, plastering, gardening, fruit and veg growing and woodland management. We are keen to develop our Spanish language skills too. We are also planning to build a swimming pool soon!

    We have basic wifi at the house and a very good mobile phone signal. The house is just 4.5km from the local town of Caspe which has a very good municipal swimming pool, shops, cafes and restaurants. There are a number of local rivers within walking distance for swimming in as well. There is a great train and bus service to Caspe from both Barcelona and Zaragoza.
