  • Description


    Hello and welcome,
    We are Cristina and Guillem. We share life with Groc and Vitt (dogs ), and with Maceta and Moix (cats) and with a flock of chickens.
    In 2017 we were workaway guests during the 8 months that our trip around Europe lasted and it was a fantastic experience! We recently purchased a caravan that is parked in the garden, and we want to change roles and be hosts!
    We live in a small house surrounded by garden, we have 2 orchard spaces.

    We look forward to exchanging cultures while having a beer in the garden!

    Do you dare to spend a few days with us ??

    Cristina does yoga, so if you feel like you can practice together, she will be happy to teach you Ashtanga yoga.

  • Help


    We offer food and lodging in exchange for helping approximately 5 hours daily, 5 days a week. Schedules may be flexible. Cleaning the common areas will not be considered as help, but as an obligation as one more inhabitant!
    We do not eat animals, and therefore we ask that our guests do not do so while they are living with us. We are looking forward to you showing us your best dishes!

    The work to be done at home can be varied, and we are open to proposals and new ideas.

    -Take care of the orchard and garden: Water flowers, uproot grass, pick leaves, sort
    workshop tools

    -make firewood to prepare for winter:Use the chainsaw, make firewood, organize it.

    -paint doors and fences:clean and strip the surfaces, paint the fence, we must also paint the barbecue, paint some iron chairs.

    -take care of the chickens:check how the chickens are, check if they have water, eat, clean their house, review the area where they live (sometimes they escape !!)

    -Diy: we are lucky to have a workshop full of tools, if you are handy and have a proposal, or you want to review some construction we have done, we would love to learn from your knowledge, if you just want to experiment, go ahead!some ideas:
    build a structure for dry toilets, bird houses, dog or cat house.


    We will value together with the person who comes, what task he feels like doing! :)
