    Help in the garden and renovate a cabin in the mountains in Asturias, Spain help in 2021

    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.

    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 ...

    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 two projects,

    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.

    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.

    There are two things you should know.

    Villabre, in Asturias, town hall of Yernes and Tameza, is an 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.

    good day

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We are looking for collaborators for the year 2020

    And be prepared for an isolated life

    It is a cabin in a small town, in a mountain environment, the inhabitants are very friendly and maintain their traditions it is a privilege to see how you live in a town that has life, the place is isolated, there are no shops or bars .... You have to assess if you are able to live like this.

    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, 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, 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...
