  • Description


    My husband (Tyler) and I (Sophie) have bought a house close to Valencia, Spain not too long ago. It has taken a lot of time to renovate and we are still working on various projects. The inside renovation is pretty much completed, but we have a lot of gardening, landscaping and building to do outside. If you want to enjoy the Spanish sun while lending a helping hand, we are happy to welcome you!

  • Accommodation


    Our house includes a 2-bedroom apartment upstairs. One of the rooms currently functions as a storage and the other one will be your bedroom. You will have your own private bathroom and a semi-equiped kitchen.

    I am mostly eating plant-based while Tyler is also eating meat once in a while. Because we both work online during the week, we have lisle time to cook, but are happy to share our fridge contents with you!

    What else ...

    Valencia can be reached by car in about 30min. You will need a car if you are planning on getting around a lot. We can take into the city and pick you up at least once a week otherwise. The next bus station is quite a long walk away.
