  • Description


    Hello I am Sabine! :-) French woman living in Catalonia.

    I am living in an old house in the center of a small village between the beaches and Figueres. Living with 2 friends and always people visiting us.

    I would like to meet volunteers (30 years old min. and more), independant, dynamic, positive and with initiative, who knows of DIY and general renovation projects.

    The renovation projects are, to put a new window, to fix the old roof, and to build a wood structure with a roof for the rain in the garden, then if somebody fortunately knows how to do that, your help will be welcome! :-)

    (Please if you read my profile, would be nice if you can let me know which kind of help you are thinking about concerning my needs. Thank you so much!)

    The help is around 5 hours per day, the rest of the day and the weekends are of course entirely free but I count on the participation of all for the daily household tasks.

    Just to let you know, I am not musician but I have a guitar and a cajon at home, also bicycles.
    Practicers of fitness, yoga, taishi, pilates, meditation or any kind of those daily healthy practices, it's a plus!

    The dream in the future will be I hope the organisation of cultural, artisanal and alternative therapy workshops and excursions around Catalonia.

    I have been myself a workawayer as volunteer during 3 years, I had a fantastic time helping other people and I know and respect the value of this wonderful exchange!

    Fortia our village is at 10 minutes driving from the beaches of the Costa Brava and 10 minutes from Figueres, and 140 kms north of Barcelona.

    It will be a pleasure to tell you more about what you need to know then feel free to contact me!
    I wish you a beautiful day wherever you are!

    Thank you and best wishes.

    Sabine :-)
