  • Description

    Description

    We are a married couple, 58, live on Mallorca and renovate our beautiful ecological finca with ecological building materials like clay and lime.
    For the moment I would like to welcome strong hands who can help plastering walls with lime and clay, also doing biochar and cleaning the surroundings of the farm so we have in and outside work to do. We also have some woodwork which needs to be done.
    We live far away from the tourist hustle on the countryside in a magical peaceful environment.
    To the see are about 25 min. to drive.
    The next village Petra is about 3 km away. There is also a train station. Bicycle is available.

    We live here self-sufficient with own water and solar electricity.

    The house is very rustic and only partly finished. We go step by step creating nice corners in and around the house.
    you will enjoy your own room, a shared bathroom.

    We are non-smokers ourselves and there is no smoking in the house. We are fish-vegetarians we can also offer a vegan food. Meat is not welcome...

    We have a cat that has to be taken care of if we are absent.
    Bringing other cats or dogs are not possible because of the cat.

    We are speaking english, german and spanish.
    Internet (WLAN) is available.

    Your tiny beautiful room is in the old part of the house on the ground floor.
    The shared bathroom is upstairs.
    In winter time it could be cold in the house. We have a nice fireplace for all. The sleeping rooms are not heathet.
    We love to eat together. We can arrange how to do with cooking since I love both, cooking for other and other cooking for me :)
    We offer healthy breakfast, lunch and a light dinner, as much as possible bio products, fresh food.

    What else ...

    There are a lot of projects on the Finca and it would be great if you could take care of a project on your own, after being guided, if needed.
    For us are cordiality, fun, honesty and a respectful togetherness very important.
