    Description

    [Please reply to host in Spanish]

    We are on a lot with my partner and sometimes we are visited by friends who live temporarily in the yurt or in vans that park on the lot. It is a dry and hot place near the sea and the mountains.

    We have 4 goats, 3 cats and two dogs. We speak Catalan, Spanish, Italian (everyone in the house) and then we also speak French and English.

    There is NO shower or toilet! To shower we improvise with carafes and for the bathroom there is a dry toilet on the ground but nobody uses it, we are building others in the forest, so far we are making holes in the forest, I want to grow the house with the energy of the people of different parts of the world!

    What do you like to do?

    ------

    Estamos en un terreno con mi pareja y a veces nos visitan amigos que viven temporalmente en la yurta o en furgonetas que aparcan en el terreno. Es un sitio seco y caluroso cerca del mar y la montaña.

    Tenemos 4 cabras, 3 gatos y dos perros. Hablamos catalán, español, italiano (todos los de la casa) y luego también hablamos francés e inglés.

    NO hay ducha ni baño! Para ducharnos improvisamos con garrafas y para el baño hay un baño seco en el terreno pero nadie lo usa, estamos construyendo otros en el bosque, hasta el momento hacemos agujeros en el bosque,

    ¡Quiero hacer crecer la casita con la energía de la gente de distintas partes del mundo! ¿Qué te gusta hacer?

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    At home we speak three languages: Catalan, Spanish and Italian. But we are also willing to speak French and English. We live in the countryside in a quiet area. We also like to get away on the weekends and go to the river or make excursions on foot or by bike in the surroundings, although we have the sea very close and we can show you very beautiful beaches!

    Normally we prefer to go to the nudist beach because it is calmer. Although if you do not like to do nudism there are also mixed beaches where you can choose if you want to go with a swimsuit or not

    En casa hablamos tres idiomas: catalán, español e italiano. Pero también estamos dispuestos a hablar francés e inglés. Vivimos en el campo en una zona tranquila.
    También nos gusta escaparnos los fines de semana e ir al río o hacer excursiones a pie o en bici por los alrededores, aunque tenemos el mar muy cerca y podemos enseñarte playas muy bonitas!

    Normalmente preferimos ir a la playa nudista porque se está más tranquilo. Aunque si no te gusta hacer nudismo también hay playas mixtas donde puedes elegir si quieres ir con bañador o no.

    On the ground there are several constructions, for the volunteers we have the wooden house, it is a room where a person or a couple can fit. It is the small refuge of the volunteer although the terrain is large.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    In the house I live with my partner, but we also share space with friends who live temporarily in the yurt or in a van and park it on the ground.

    The land is far from the town and the city, sometimes we are a few days without moving and sometimes we go down every day.

    En la casa vivo con mi pareja, pero también compartimos espacio con amigos que viven temporalmente en la yurta o en furgoneta y la aparcan en el terreno.

    El terreno está lejos del pueblo y de la ciudad, a veces estamos unos días sin movernos y a veces bajamos cada día.
