  • Description


    We are a Catalan couple with two young daughters living in Vic, 50 min. up north from Barcelona, and 50.min south from France and the Pyrenes in a very nice green and rich in cultural life area. Our daughters are 4 and 1-year old.

    Marta, the mother, is an almost full time mom, also a puppeteer and part time drama teacher in the College. Miquel works out of home, all mornings as a geographer just 4 days a week. He is also a musician. Both nowadays best project is to be parents!

    We also create shadow and puppet shows for children and we perform around Catalonia. We love the nature and we want to restore an old house in the future. We would like to create a nice rural b&b.

    By now we take care of our daughters and we work on our artístic areas.
