We are both in our late 50s, Dutch from origin, but we have lived in Sweden (where we still own a house) and now on Mallorca. It's so much fun over here that we rarely go to Holland or to Sweden anymore.
DIY and building projects
We will share our knowledge and experience on all fields that the volunteer may be working on, like construction, gardening, wood working, metal working, whatever is being done. But also driving the big machines could be part of this, depending the work to be done.
We are not experts in any of the things we are doing, but we can do, make and build everything you can think of. We just do it and as mentioned, we have really all the tools you can think of.
We own a 3 hectare sized finca on Mallorca. We like to do things, to create and share knowledge with others. We have all the tools you can think of, for gardening, but also for construction, carpentry.... you name it and we have it. Including some super big machines like telescopic handler, excavators, loaders a mini dumper.
What we need now is a person skilled with wood, a carpenter to make big doors for a building we are restoring. But there are always many projects going on here, also related to building natural walls, concrete building, cutting and milling trees etc etc etc etc.
We have had many volunteers in the past through this website but also through various other websites. Most of the volunteer stays have been very positive and all volunteers had a great time and learned a lot.
We have a few guests houses on the premises, one very small but comfortable 1 room/bedroom house, which has an outside kitchen. It's suitable for max 2 persons. The other house is a much larger house, but with a much smaller kitchen. It has a great view over the valley below towards Inca, the 3rd largest city on Mallorca.
We are situated just outside Selva, a small town with around 1000 inhabitants. Selva is about 2 km from Inca, the 'big' city. We do have a few bicycles and there are buses going to Inca and in the other direction to the Tramuntana, the mountain ridge very closeby (we are at the foot of the this ridge).
