  • Description


    We are a couple (I'm English he's Spanish) with a toddler who have restored a masia in the beautiful region of Matarraya. The finca is an off grid property with solar power and a well. We have 7 chickens 3 cats and 3 horses. There is still a lot of work to do landscaping outside. We want to become as self sufficient as possible. We need help with taking care of the animals and veggie patch, help with childcare (our son is 4yrs) and help in the house. Ideally I would like someone with knowledge of horses and good with children. We can offer a caravan to stay in. We also have a pool. The property is remote and you will need a car or at least be able to drive. Set in nearly a 100 of forest ideal for a those wish to spend time closer to nature or improve their English or Spanish and practice yoga in our yoga hall.
