  • Description


    Hi, I'm Claudine and I live in our villa in Estartit, on the beautiful Costa Brava of Spain.
    I am Belgian-Flemish, speak Dutch, French, German, Spanish, English of course, and a little bit of Catalan.
    We built our villa in 2006 as a conjunction of 3 independent appartments, which we rent out for holidays and doing this with great pleasure.
    For the moment, I have to run this whole project without external help. The maintenance of the house, the garden, little repairs and construction adjustments, it's all quiet a challenge for 1 person :-))
    I'm not unhandy, do most of the maintenance, repairing, painting and construction work on my own, but sometimes things need more hands to be done.
    Basically looking for handy and sincere couple who cover some skills like sanitary and electric repairing, carpentery and rockbuilding in the garden,.. it would be a great help for me!

    Our villa is at only 3 km of the beach of Estartit, and we are located in the middle of the beautiful protected woods that are so specific for the Catalonian nature.
    All our summerguests are always so delighted to pass their holidays in our villa, and most of them return different times.

    Estartit is a privileged place. The variety of different landscapes, the large woods that touch the long beach, and the leisure opportunities make this Costa Brava area an ideal spot for enjoying pleasant, comfortable stays at any time of the year.
    The Medes Islands ecosystem is deservedly classified as the best natural reserve in the western Mediterranean.
