  • Description


    hi there,
    myself I am a Project Manager in Telecommunications, working as a freelance. as my contract ends in 1 week, I am leaving Barcelona and coming to Costean to finish rebuilding my dream house.
    It is a 200 years old one, made of 50 cm thick stone walls, 1st and 2nd floor are ready + 2 rooms and bathroom, so I would like to finish the last floor.
    the village (Costean) is 7 km by car from Barbastro (20k habitants , all services, restaurants, bars, clubs..).
    Costean is the perfect place if you want peace and tranquility, on my street there are passing max 3 cars a day.. just 30 min away is Alquezar, a mediaval touristic place, 45 min away Ainsa.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I speak English, Spanish, French, Russian and Romanian (originary from Moldova). Like socializing and meeting International people. We can have long nights talking about everything and nothing, in front of the cheminee, with a glass of wine and some local cheese.
    Give it a try, I am sure we’re going to have quality time together!
