  • Description

    Description

    We now have a place for a cancellation.

    We are looking for collaborators for the autumn winter,2021/2022 in a town lost in the Asturian mountains. The House is comfortable you can see it on YouTube


    We are interested in both Spanish people and people of other nationalities, to be able to coexist and energize in a town lost in the mountains. The half and half formula is good for practicing half the day in Spanish and half the day in English.

    We are looking for volunteers who want to live in a mountain town, in the heart of Asturias, we accept short and long stays with preference for the latter.

    This is a bilingual project that takes place in English and Spanish.


    Este es un proyecto bilingue que se desarrolla en inglés y en español.

    Digital nomads are accepted, we have an acceptable Internet speed for a remote village, the maximum for the Vodafone company.


    Tenemos ahora una plaza por una cancelación. Nos interesa tanto personas españolas como de otras nacionalidades, para poder convivir y dinamizar en un pueblo perdido en las montañas. La fórmula de mitad y mitad es buena para practicar mitad del día en castellano mitad del día en inglés.



    We need help about our proyect in the Asturian mountains
    you work 3 full days rest 4 days or make excursions in the area, fórmula 3+4


    Deciding who is coming and who is not coming to our project is difficult and complicated, there is a feature that we like a lot, always answering our letters, emails, calls, this year or another ... we would consider it. I would prefer whastupp to be able to exchange more information.


    The selection of the candidates belongs partly to the workaways and partly to my opinion (Paco).

    Any decision of yours or ours needs a lot of relaxation ... both you and we have to have many elements to decide an acceptance ...

    Digital nomads are accepted, we have an acceptable Internet speed for a remote village, the maximum for the Vodafone company.

    Generally, a volunteer acts as a leader, it is usually a volunteer who has been in the project for months. It organizes or coordinates work or non-work activities. O Paco leads the activity.

    The leader teaches or directs makes decisions on the fly, the weather, the rain makes us have to leave the activity or resume it.
    He organizes non-work activities, excursions, cooking or cleaning shifts. It is a group self-managed by the cohabitants ... A curious way of organizing ... Where the most experienced workaways play a central role

    I think that both you and we want to take some time, study our profiles to assess the best compatibility.

    We need help about our project in the Asturian mountains, in a town lost in the Asturian mountains.

    You work three full days) rest 4 days or make excursions in the area, it is our formula (3 + 4)

    If you are an autonomous person and with manual skills you can be a short stay of 2/3 weeks if not, it is better a few months to be able to teach


    Our goal is long stays of at least two months onwards, and the formula of getting to know the project is to talk with the workaways, those who are working at the moment and the previous ones ... They will give you the best information ... To come This project must be people accustomed to working independently and who want and like to live in the middle of nature with a certain degree of isolation.

    The best thing is to talk with our volunteers, by phone or WhatsApp or email ... one thing is the vision of the project from within, the vision of Paco and another that of the volunteers, this is the most interesting perspective for the traveler, that is the forms that we have decided as a way to approach the Casa Paco project

    WE HAVE TWO TYPES OF LONG AND SHORT STAY.

    We understand for a short stay 2/3 weeks or a couple of months, a long stay is more than three months.
    We need time to teach what you need to do, as we will work only 3 days out of 7 if these 2/ 3 weeks you will work 9 days and it is a short time if the task is complex ... carpentry.
    If you are an expert or a high-level handyman, things are faster. In the last 10 years we have had many travelers who have made long stays 3 ... 6 months and even two and a half years.


    Joke (Juan) ... is our current volunteer.... Ramón and Dag the previous one .... This has been two and a half years.

    This project is for autonomous people capable of living in isolation ... If you have not had previous work experiences, or stays in the mountains and in physical work, we do not recommend it ... Climbers, mountaineers will have a great time ... Workers of any branch ... Long-distance runners ... Town peo7ple ....

    What we are doing, the truth is that many things, stone walls, improve the electrical installation, plumbing, carpentry, tiles ... Everything.

    Throughout our lives we have received visitors, volunteers through different routes, in the last 3 decades especially with workaway or with SERVAS.

    IN THE SUMMER MONTHS WE USE TO BE, BETWEEN 2 AND 5 VOLUNTEERS FROM DIFFERENT COUNTRIES IN A VILLAGE WHICH IN WINTER THERE ARE 18 PEOPLE, THAT IS, 18 PLUS 5 IS 23 ... CROWD ...



    We need help for our project in the Asturian mountains, now we are in a very sweet moment, we have a completely finished house, the green house, and the other house, the new house. A young house of more than a century with its new roof and loft, well insulated, provides us with a lot of comfort.


    IN THE SUMMER MONTHS WE USE TO BE, BETWEEN 2 AND 5 VOLUNTEERS FROM DIFFERENT COUNTRIES IN A VILLAGE WHICH IN WINTER THERE ARE 18 PEOPLE, THAT IS, 18 PLUS 5 IS 23 ... CROWD ...

    WE NEED TRAVELERS WHO WANT TO LIVE WITH ... FOR LONG PERIODS OF AT LEAST A FEW MONTHS.

    We prefer a slow formula to introduce ourselves, we want to go to the mountains, climb, work, visit interesting areas and places ... And go back to work, it is a mixture of intense work and deep relaxation.

    But here when you work, it is done with an intensity that we advise against for people without experience of activity ... Cutting grass with the brush cutter, laying bricks or a wooden paneling, making electrical installation ... It is our day to day.

    Free time is something else, we love climbing mountains ... But you can stay painting or writing your book ... That time is yours, you've earned it ... It's the 3 + 4 formula

    ------

    Lo mejor es hablar con nuestro voluntarios, por teléfono o WhatsApp o email.. una cosa es la visión del proyecto desde dentro y otra la de los voluntarios, esa es la formuls que hemos decidido como mejor.

    Joke (Juan) es nuestro voluntario actual Ramón y Dag los anteriores.. Estos ha estado dos años y medio.



    Este proyecto es para personas autónomas y capaces de vivir aisladas... Si no has tenido experiencia en el monte y en el trabajo físico no lo recomendamos...viajeros I penitentes, trabajadores.. Escaladores, montañeros se lo pasarán muy bien... Trabajadores... Corredores de fondo... Gente de pueblo.... Personas acostumbradas a conjugar el verbo trabajar... Hacer... Y descansar.



    IN THE SUMMER MONTHS WE USE TO BE, BETWEEN 2 AND 5 VOLUNTEERS FROM DIFFERENT COUNTRIES IN A VILLAGE WHICH IN WINTER THERE ARE 18 PEOPLE, THAT IS, 18 PLUS 5 IS 23 ... CROWD ...


    --Generalmente un voluntario ejerce de líder, suele ser un voluntario que lleva meses en el proyecto..Organiza o coordina actividades laborales o no laborales. O Paco lidera la actividad. El líder enseña o dirige toma decisiones sobre la marcha, el tiempo, la lluvia hace que tengamos que dejar la actividad o retomarla cuando nos visita el sol.. Organiza las actividades no laborales excursiones turnos de cocina o limpieza.
    Se trata de un grupo autogestionado por los convivientes... Una curiosa forma de organizar... Donde los workaways con más experiencia tienen un papel centesl

    Necesitamos ayuda para nuestro proyecto en las montañas asturianas.


    LOS MESES DE VERANO SOLEMOS SER, ENTRE 2 Y 5 VOLUNTARIOS DE DIFERENTES PAISES EN UN PUEBLO QUE EN INVIERNO HAY 18 PERSONAS, ES DECIR 18 MAS 5 ES 23 ...MULTITUD...

    For years we have been fixing a refuge house in the mountains. In July and August we will do carpentry, masonry, electrical and plumbing work. Volunteers do not mind getting lost in the deep asturias. If you are interested we can talk about dates. The activity is concentrated in three days the rest of the week to make excursions in the area or to rest

    A comfortable formula for those who want to travel (you work three full days) rest 4 days or make excursions in the area,
    It involves cutting brambles with the brush cutter, helping to make paths or helping as a bricklayer's assistant.
    It is better that you know that it is an isolated place, you need to be an autonomous person, ... the three days you work hard ... that is the field ...

    Work 3 days, rest 4

    At the moment we are looking for people with solid knowledge in the garden and masonry assistants, at this time some strength is needed to tame our pending garden.

    Long stays, we have had volunteers and visitors for more than 30 years ... With two modalities, short one month is the standard or long stays of one or two years, some people return to visit us periodically ... We like that feeling , towns are dying and volunteers Give life ... If you come in a hurry this is not a good project


    Rehabilitate a cabin in the mountains 3 help days 4 rest in Asturias Spain
    We are looking for collaborators for the year 2021,


    We are looking for a helpers for projects,

    1.-IF YOU ARE A PERSON who enjoys nature, you don't need shops and bars, this is a good option. But if what you are looking for is something more vacation, with the hustle and bustle of the city I think this will not offer you this.
    If you want to enjoy the forest of the Rio la Tierra ... and have time for yourself ... walks through the mountains this if it offered you with ease

    one adapts a little more a cabin in the bush. The cabin has a bathroom, kitchen room, light with solar panels but we need to make some shelves and tune the water system of the well.

    2.-The second project is our new garden, we have two but this third one is the largest and we have to clean it to adapt it to plant the trees and vegetables.

    3.-Repair the old town hall laundry (lavadero), a collaborative project with all the people of the town ... we introduce you with a poetic text ... emotional

    In memory of the women who went to the Villabre laundry ... I did not know the laundry, Pilar and Javi had told me about it .... The funny thing is that I did not even imagine that it was so close to my house ... When I arrived By clearing the brush, the place surprised me and suddenly I tried to remember All the women ... Who came to wash in this poetic place ... Pilar told me that she did not understand how the road was not repaired ... She missed the place ... . The way ... Javi always talked to me about how they played there ... From the source ... Between all of us we have to write the long list of women who came to the laundry ... Recover their memory ... life to a place in everyone's memory ...

    Climbing is one of our hobbies, of the type of classic climbing at a level of IV or Iv + that is to say without difficulties, climbing for pure pleasure ... We are promoters of the concept of easy classic climbing without complexes

    There are two things you should know.

    Villabre, in Asturias, town hall of Yernes and Tameza, is an VERY isolated site, there is internet, but there are NO shops and the inhabitants are very friendly but scarce, 100 houses 17 neighbors.

    If you are interested in the project you will be very welcome


    This a good vídeo about this place.

    The Puertos de Marabio Natural Monument is made up of sinkholes and blind valleys.

    It is a natural space protected by the existence of a peculiar karst complex, formed by sinkholes and blind valleys that give it great hydrogeological interest. It has three large cavities: the Sumidoiro del Fondadal, 156 meters deep, the Vistulaz Cave and the Vegalonga System, which with its 5,900 meters of development represents one of the main underground complexes in the region.

    In the ports we can find grasslands with deer and scrub surface, generally heaths, gorse, holly, Genista occidentalis, hawthorn and blackthorn.

    This Natural Monument is included in the Protected Landscape of Pico Caldoveiro.

    Location in the Area

    The Ports of Marabio are located between the councils of Yernes and Tameza, Teverga and Proaza, and are delimited to the east by the Sierra de Peña Padiella, to the west by the Sierra de la Granda, to the north by Pico Caldoveiro and to the south by the watershed of the Santibáñez River.



    El participar en un proyecto como este tiene el interés de aprender, trabajos de albañilería, carpintería, a reparar un camino trabajar en equipo, trabajar en una huerto... aprender otro idioma, en un entorno de montaña... lleno de vida y de historia.
    Hay mucho tiempo libre.
    En menos de 100 metros estas en pleno bosque con un rio de montaña.

    Podrás tener la experiencia de vivir una vida con "neo" rurales
    Si dispones de tiempo y energía es un buen proyecto....para aprender... Pero es un proyecto particular para gente que le guste el campo y la montaña... No es para personas amantes de la ciudad

    si tienes prisa...esto no es una buena idea busca más... , aquí las cosas se hacen lentamente..... seguro que encuentras alguno que se adapte mejor.
    Disfruta de tu día a día... saludos

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    A small comment about respect for other ways of living.
    In the town our neighbors are cattle ranchers, with their peculiar way of understanding life and the struggles to survive in the balance of the natural environment.
    The neo-rurals -e
    Among those I find myself very given to preaching that it is the right thing to do and not about how the balance between wildlife and livestock should be.
    I think we should reflect from a respectful point of view. We must not fall into cultural ethnocentrism, walking slowly and listening previously allows us to build another way of thinking but it is a process of years, the countryside is not changed with speeches from the city. I think respect and listening is a good point of view.


    Volunteers are expected to be autonomous, if / the project adapts you will enjoy it, if you don't adapt. Don't suffer, look for another site that suits your philosophy.



    We are interested in receiving people who understand what it means to live autonomously in a rural environment. Sometimes visitors expect to find the same as in a city and that is not the case. It is not necessary to have experience but to be disciplined and autonomous. There is a lot of free time. The work schedule is 24 hours a week, we usually concentrate it on three days so we have more days off ... if you want another distribution there are no problems.

     The cabin no. It is comfortable, HAS ALL KIND OF CLOTHES, WATER BOOTS ... but life in the countryside has some characteristics that need important energy and adaptability from visitors.

    This is not a good option for travelers who believe that this is a hotel ... no, here this is a house where three days a week really works and four is enjoyed .... it is your time ... for what That you decide, THIS IS AN EXCHANGE PROGRAM ... IT IS SOMETHING LIKE A WORKSHOP SCHOOL ... PEOPLE ARE THE IMPORTANT ... THE HONESTY..THE BEING ABLE TO SHARE .... the fundamental ... enjoy of what you live

    Es una cabaña en pueblo pequeño, tienes una habitación privada...... en un entorno de montaña, los habitantes son muy amables y mantienen sus tradiciones es un privilegio ver como se vive en un pueblo que tiene vida,
    el lugar esta aislado, no hay tiendas ni bares.... Tienes que valorar si eres capaz de vivir así.

    Nosotros tenemos interés de recibir personas que entiendan que es vivir con autonomía en un medio rural. En ocasiones los visitantes esperan encontrar lo mismo que en una ciudad y eso no es así. No es necesario tener experiencia pero si ser disciplinado y autónomo. Hay mucho tiempo libre. El horario de trabajo son 24 horas a la semana, generalmente lo concentramos en tres jornadas así tenemos mas días libres.. si quieres otra distribución no hay problemas.

    La cabaña no. es .cómoda, TIENE TODO TIPO DE ROPA, BOTAS DE AGUA... pero la vida en el campo tiene algunas características que necesitan de los visitantes una energía y adaptabilidad importante.

    Esta no es una buena opción para viajeros que crean que esto es un hotel...no, aquí esto es una casa donde tres dias a la semana se trabaja realmente y cuatro se disfruta .... es tu tiempo libre...para lo que tu decidas, ESTO ES UN PROGRAMA DE INTERCAMBIO... ES ALGO PARECIDO A UNA ESCUELA TALLER... LAS PERSONAS SON LO IMPORTANTE...LA HONESTIDAD..EL SER CAPAZ DE COMPARTIR....lo fundamental... disfruta de lo que vives.
    Si nos escribes siempre contestamos.....algunas veces tardamos unos dias ...hace falta paciencia.

    Cuando aceptamos a un viajero nos comprometemos... eso lleva tiempo planificar recogerlo...organizar su estancia... te deseamos ....suerte en tu viaje...

    En ocasiones nosotros o el viajero no encajamos o no somos compatibles... Eso pasa... Y de hecho nos ha pasado dos veces... Invitamos a los viajeros a que exploren otros lugares necesitamos sentirnos todos muy cómodos y relajados
