  • Description


    My name is Sabine.

    I am renovating an old house in the center of a small village between the beaches and Figueres. I would like to meet volunteers who can help me with DIY and renovation in general. I am living with Spanish and French speakers then would be nice for you to speak a conversational Spanish or French.

    Right now I would need help to build in the garden, a carpentry construction with a roof. And to renovate the old walls before to paint and to clean the wood beams of the bedrooms.

    The project in the future is the organisation of cultural, artisanal and alternative therapy workshops and for this winter 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.

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

    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 :-)
