  • Description


    1 year ago I moved into the house of my ancestors. A 16th century house surrounded by nature. Nobody has lived there for a long time and the place needs a lot of help.
    In the place we offer natural therapies but the hekp that we are looking for is not for this business but is just for the garden and the house.
    Now we are making wooden houses around the garden, and renovating the place with natural products. We are very interested in permaculture.

    You can live in a place surrounded by nature. We have bicycles that you can take and go for a ride. I like to meditate everyday and you can join me when you like. All the area is very nice, we have lots of natural parks around and the beach is not so far

    Hello! We live in a Catalan farmhouse of the XVI century close to Gerona (Catalunya). Is a very big house with a big garden of 2. 000m2. We would welcome help with gardening, general maintenance, cooking, helping with internet or building projects (We have some little house around the house made with wood). Our philosophy is to live in nature trying to don't modificate anything and always using natural products.
    We are vegetarians and live with 7 chickens, 9 cats and a dog. We have a food garden and another of medicinal plants that we use for the natural therapies.
