  • Description

    Description

    Hans and I are a Dutch/English couple with 2 dogs living in Calonge on the Costa Brava in Spain. We are in the process of making our house beautiful in order to rent out as a family holiday destination. It is great fun going a little 'over the top' in planning the decorations and facilities we would like to have in our villa. We have lots of fun plans, I come up with crazy ideas and Hans is the person that makes them possible. We do all the work ourselves and are always very grateful for an extra hand here and there.
    My hobby is flying hot air balloons. We can take the equipment out to play with if you are interested.
    Hans and I are quiet people but we like having new faces to chat to. We provide private bedroom and bathroom facilities with good internet connection. Bikes are also available. The coast is 5km away.
    We like to work with a 2 day work and 2 day free rota. Cooking is not my strong point so any help with this is welcome. We find a maximum stay of about 5 weeks is good for everyone. This is a great location for travellers needing a rest.
    We have plenty of comfortable bedrooms for guests and helpers and like sharing our lovely corner of the earth.

    Hans and I speak Dutch and English fluently and are happy to chat to anyone wanting to practise/learn those languages. Hans has multi skills in building and is very good at explaining how things work. Calonge is a lovely area with soooo many places to enjoy the nature and walk, run, or cycle for those who want a break and explore.

  • Help

    Help

    An extra hand is always welcome. No building skills necessary. Hans is good a giving instructions and someone to help lift that object or pass that screwdriver saves a lot of energy. I (Jackie) am also always grateful if someone enjoys putting a meal on the table or has time to help Hans. We have plenty of bedrooms with private bathrooms and a working swimming pool available for use.
