  • Description


    I'm Jordi, Spanish (Catalan) I'm 45 years old, and I have a 14-year-old daughter who comes home some days. A couple of years ago I settled in a farmhouse in the middle of the forest, surrounded by nature and tranquility. Marina also lives with me, she has rented a room, and the horses are hers. It's my house, it's not a business. I work outside in the morning, and it would be nice to have someone at home to do the exterior maintenance, gardening, orchard, animals (we have dogs, chickens and 2 horses), and perhaps also interior (painting, etc. .). It is an incredible place, full of tranquility, it will captivate you.
    I don't have facebook or website. A lot of tranquility in the middle of nature in a family environment.
    Sharing dinners with the volunteers in this season of good weather is a pleasure.

    This is my description until today, at the end of October. The question is that my housemate Marina is leaving after 2 years, and I would like to find a woman who would like to do a long-term volunteer service, a few months from January 2023 until after the summer or so. It is when I work the most at home. I will be alone, and I would need her to help me with cleaning, cooking (if she is a good cook, it would be better... hehe), orchards, animals, etc...
    It is a very quiet place and there is always a good atmosphere as you can read in people's descriptions.


    Soy Jordi, español (catalan) tengo 48 años, y Anna de 39 años, mi pareja. Tengo una hija de 16 que viene a casa algunos dias. Hace 4 años que vivimos en una masia en medio del bosque, rodeado de naturaleza y tranquilidad. Es una casa, no es un negocio. Yo trabajo fuera por las mañanas, y nos iría bien tener a alguien en casa para hacer los trabajos de exteriores de mantenimiento, jardineria, huerto, animales (tenemos perros, gallinas, gatos), y quizá también de interiores (pintura, etc..). Es un sitio increible, lleno de tranquilidad.
    No tengo facebook ni pagina web. Mucha tranquilidad en medio de la naturaleza en un ambiente familiar.
    El intercambio cultural , el charlar, compartir cenas con los voluntarios en el jardin o alrededor del fuego es un placer.
    Los fines de semana suele pasar mucha gente y se juega a juegos de mesa, etc...

    Me gustaria encontrar a alguien que le apeteciese hacer un voluntariado en junio - julio.
    Es un sitio muy tranquilo y siempre hay buen ambiente como podeis leer en las descripciones de la gente.
    Ha pasado gente de medio mundo por casa, de muchas nacionalidades y es un placer conocer gente nueva siempre. Os esperamos!

    I have moved to a masia (farm) in the middle of the forest on the Costa del Montseny. I want to prepare a garden, ballar it, make firewood, raise chickens, I have a dog, and I work in the mornings. I'm interested in hosting someone for a few days to get everything going. Prepare the chicken coop, make firewood for the winter, ballar the garden, weed, clean the surroundings of the farmhouse. You also have to paint the house inside, the rooms attached to the house, cook, ...
    I want to meet people from other countries to enrich myself with their culture, cuisine, etc. Before I was in a rural house where we welcomed Workawayers and it was a great experience to share dinners and talks with strangers.

    Hay que hacer el mantenimiento del huerto, limpiado de gallinero, zona de caballos, exteriores, recoger leña para el invierno, etc..

    Tambien seran bienvenidas la ayudas domesticas en limpieza, cocina, pequeños arreglos.

    Ahora con el buen tiempo me apetece compartir charlas y conocer gente de otros paises para enriquecerme de su cultura, cocina, etc. Antes estuve en una casa rural donde acogiamos Workawayers y fue una experiencia genial compartir cenas y charlas con gente desconocida.
