  • Description


    We would love positive, enthusiastic, happy, smiley people to come and join us in our home.
    We have recently moved to Olot in Girona Province from the UK. We have a property in the Garrotxa natural park. A great place for hiking and cycling. There are many projects here. Something to interest everyone!
    We hope to share our knowledge in tasks and also learn some new things along the way.
    We have one very friendly dog called Evie.
    We would really like to learn some Spanish if possible! And we're happy to help people improve their English.
    We look forward to exploring the surrounding area with our workaway friends.

    We are new to this area and so we look forward to exploring with anyone who would like to share this experience with us. We can learn about Spanish culture together. The people here in Olot are so incredibly kind and friendly, we feel very lucky to have found this place.

  • Help


    We have lots of outdoor projects to do while the weather is good, gardening, fencing, hedge work etc. We would also like to start planting fruit trees and start a vegetable garden with the aim to be more self sufficient.
    Also lots of restoration work and decorating with the inside of the house. We love to meet people that are motivated and are able to work on their own initiative and that are willing to share their ideas with us. Many heads together can come up with good solutions! We love to have a well earned beer or two or three together and talk about life and share stories and experiences.

    What else ...

    We are a short walk from the town of Olot and are happy to help people organise day trips to explore or to go out together. We also have many marked hiking routes from our house that are beautiful walks to different villages, forests and the most amazing views. Every day the views are different and so breath taking.
