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

    (Please very important!! If you are interested, once you read the profile, it would be nice to let me know in your post what kind of help you think of regarding our needs. Thank you very much!)

    I am living in a big house in the center of a small village between the beaches and Figueres. Living with 5 friends and always people visiting us.

    I would like to meet volunteers (speaking spanish, 25 years old minimum), dynamic and with initiative, knowing about DIY, construction and general renovation works.
    I am also very interested in taking singing lessons then if you can teach vocal tecnics, would be great too!

    The renovation projects are, to built a barbecue in the garden, to fix the old roof, or to instalate news windows then if somebody fortunately knows how to do that, your knowledge will be welcome!
    And about the vegetable garden, if you know how to prepare it for the new seed, would be fantastic too!

    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.

    The dream in the future will be I hope the organisation of artisanal and alternative therapies workshops and cultural 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 :-)
