I am Marti, 35 yo, dad of twins baby boys from last September with my wife!
I am very lucky to live, love and work in a Masia which is in my family for over 500 years. This place is full of history and traditions that I will be happy to share with you.
In 2016 I decided to develop organic production of vegetables and fruits in my lands (3 hectares).
I also have hens and produce natural eggs.
I am looking for the first time for Workawayers to help me both in agriculture tasks and in masia renovation project.
My wife is also looking for support with our twins. For this we need a person who drives.
The Workawayers will stay in a part of la masía with two rooms, kitchen, bathroom with hot shower and will have access to bathroom with hot water in the shower and living room, and of course a wood stove for keepit hot. We also have a pool, you will have access to it on a agreed timing, but now is winter it's close, but the landscape is very nice and there are cool places to visit and eateble mushrooms in autumn in the forest for take and eat, I Will teach you both.
We will provide essential food needs.
Time schedule coud be : working on mornings and free afternoon, but with variability if the needed request.
As a project with my wife, we are starting the renovation of the masia in the idea to be able to welcome people that are interested in disconecting and enjoying the nature around.
We also have a summer refugee with a futur project of renovate and transform in a properly home for the Workawayers.
The masia is located 1h car from Barcelona, 45 min from the beaches, 30 min from Montserrat, 1h40 from Andorra.
It is also located near to a village where you can find essential services.
