  • Description


    We, my friend and my son live in an olivar, it is about 8,000 mts2 of terraced land planted with mainly olives trees ( we have planted many other fruit trees ) We would like it to become an active exchange place combining art with nature.
    I offer classes in ceramics and painting on silk, etching and oil painting,,, () my son is a massage therapist and musician who can record voice and song, and my friend is a psychologist and writer who would like to have 'tertulias' talks, open discussions, constelation therapy ,,, Also, we have leveled and made an earth floor at the end of the garden for music and dance-
    What we would like is someone (or a couple) with knowledge of carpentry to enclose a porche with recycled windows for a ceramic studio or a possible bedroom We are open to ideas and enthusiasm to help build a larger project,. It would be complete if that person or couple likes handiwork and gardening as eventually an edible and medicinal herb garden is also a part of this dream

  • Accommodation


    For the moment, we have a little room with a double bed and which has a private bathroom that is shared with my son, who has a cabin far down in the lower terraces
    We eat very healthy meals we have generally two meals a day one lighter than the other and nibbles. in the morning we have tea or coffee fruit and muesli (or bread and jam) we are very accomodating to another's needs; if the person would like to cook that i s a bonus, as we love learning other dishes and what we do normally is take turns cooking so every three days if the person could prepare a meal it would be wonderful! and wonderful too if the person helps with preparation and cleanup we would appreciate being like family

    We live in the Tramuntana mountains of Mallorca, declared Patrimonio of the Unesco, it has the most beautiful walks on ancient Roman and Phoenician roads and has beautiful swimming calas and a lovely little town with cafes and cultural events and offers visits to many other towns through the road network of Mallorca.
