    Description

    Hello,
    My name is Eva and I have an organic garden in Santillana del Mar , Cantabria (northern Spain ) .
    The truth is that it is a beautiful place that you love to hear .
    I wish you'd come to learn and konw about the countryside culture from Cantabria
    About my family,.. I live with my son Alberto that is 9 years old and my father come everyday to help me a little because there are many things to do..
    Furthermore, I am starting a small project in eco tourism.

    On the other hand, I work as a journalist in an agrarian organization, so many mornings I had to go to work and then fly to feed my son, take him to activities and do homework. From what you can imagine that it is a little stressful life. However, I am happy with what I do.
    The idea is that you can help me in some easy tasks.
    While, you can see how is the life en our organic farm situated in the countryside, but very near Santillana del Mar and Altamira Caves.
    The stay would be spent in a bungalow house that I have next to my house, in the garden. This has 2 bedrooms, living room-kitchen and bathroom. It is a very cozy little house from my point of view.
    It has everything you need to live: all kitchen tools, towels, blankets, sheets, toilet paper, ... Ready to move into comfortably.
    Then, the food, we give you everything or that you need to be produced on the farm (seasonal vegetables, eggs, milk meat, ...). The rest of the meal would be your responsibility, but I think we are very self-sufficient.


    I hope you like my profile. See you soon! !

    Hola,
    Mi nombre es Eva y tengo un huerto orgánico en Santillana del Mar, Cantabria (norte de España).
    La verdad es que es un lugar hermoso que te encantará conocer.
    Me gustaría que vinieras a aprender y conocer la cultura del campo de Cantabria.
    Sobre mi familia ... vivo con mi hijo Alberto que tiene 9 años y mi padre viene todos los días para ayudarme un poco porque hay muchas cosas que hacer ...

    Además, estoy comenzando un pequeño proyecto en ecoturismo.

    A parte, yo trabajo como periodista en una organización agraria, por lo que muchas mañanas tengp que ir a trabajar y luego vover para dar de comer a mi hijo, llevarle a actividades y hacer deberes. Por lo que podeis imaginar que es una vida un poco estresante. No obstante, estoy contenta con lo que hago.

    La idea es que me puedan ayudar en algunas tareas fáciles.
    Mientras tanto, puede ver cómo es la vida en nuestra granja orgánica situada en el campo, pero muy cerca de las cuevas de Santillana del Mar y Altamira.
    La estancia la pasarías en una casita tipo bungalow que tengo junto a mi casa, en el jardín. Ésta cuenta con 2 habitaciones, salón-cocina y baño. Es una casita muy acogedora desde mi punto de vista.
    Cuenta con todo lo necesario para vivir: todas las herramientas de cocina, toallas, mantas, sábanas, papel higiénico,... Esta lista para que entres a vivir cómodamente.

    Luego, la comida, te regalamos todo o que necesites que se produzca en la finca (verduras de temporada, huevos, leche carne,...). El resto de comida correría a tu cargo, pero creo que somos muy autosuficientes.




    Espero que les guste mi perfil. ¡Te veo pronto! !

    What else ...

    During leisure, volunteers can take beautiful walks in the area or they can also go down to Santillana del Mar, which is very close.
    Also, as I am continually going to Torrelavega (nearby city), you can go with me and take the opportunity to run errands and then go home with me.

    Durante el tiempo libre, los voluntarios pueden darse bonitos paseos por la zona o también pueden bajar a Santillana del Mar que está muy cerca.
    Además, como yo estoy continuamente yendo a Torrelavega (ciudad cercana), pueden ir conmigo y aprovechar para hacer recados y luego subir a casa conmigo.
