Beautiful green Cantabria is calling!
Our little corner of the earth is rustic and cozy in a small hamlet amidst the Cantabrian Cordillera, situated just 1/2 an hour from the coast and its beautiful beaches, and one hour to both Bilbao and Santander. We rebuilt this stone and timber house from a 300 year old crumbling ruin.
We are a small family, Jasmine is Canadian and Javi is Spanish/Basque, and we have a 6 year old son, Emeric. Three mares, an 2 lovely sheep dogs, friendly cat, chickens and ducks round out our small clan.
We always have a few projects we´d like to tackle and if you would like to come and give us a hand we´d really appreciate it.
We´d like to send a big call out there to folks who have knowledge and experience with electrical work, we´d like to finish the electrical installation in the workshop so I can set up a little lampworking hotshop for glass.
Our lovely little veggie patch has been neglected so far this year (read jungle), so some extra hands to whip it into shape would be great, especially if you are already familiar with gardening.
There´s much to explore in the area. Come and enjoy the plethora of hiking trails, caves, rockclimbing, via ferrata, and beaches and soak up the country life in northern rural spain.

We can offer a mixed cultural experience, european and canadian. Lots of time outdoors, delicious food. When the weather is nice we sometimes head to the beach in the afternoon. A chance to brush up on your english or spanish, learn about horses, gardening, food preserving....
There are many opportunities around here both indoors and out. On our property we have fruit trees and a vegetable garden, there´s landscaping work to be done and a few heavier projects we´d love some help with.
Private room, shared bathroom (guest bathroom/powder room) also a motorhome parked out under the trees for a family.
We are open and flexible, if you are looking to spend a little time in rural spain, come and get to know this little corner of the earth.
