  • Description


    Hi there,

    It's a perfect time to open a big house in the mountains that has been closed for two years and bring it to live :)) I'm willing to start a project of an organic garden for family consumption.

    I’m Maria. Would be great If you are a sapio DYS, you enjoy nature, a very quiet ambient and you have at least 15 days in May/ June 2020 to give me a hand to improved the state of the cottage
    You will have the opportunity to know the surrounding area and discover places of exceptional natural beauty.

    I will need help to do maintenance work at the Cottage in Catalan in the Municipality of Tavertet Province of Barcelona. Situated 90 km North west of Barcelona city and 25 km from Vic capital of Osona.
    This place is 5 km away from the tiny village of Tavertet and 9km away from a bigger village with all services.
    Food and accomodation is included except for the free weekends if you are away.
