  • Description


    We are a family of four people, my mother, my two daughters(10-12 years old) and me (woman). We live in a finca with 30000m2 land. There is many trees, cactus, plants to look after... It's a typical house from here, a bit rustic but very comfortable. We live 15 minutes from Manacor, a bit lost in the nature and also 20minutes from the sea. We have wifi but not as well as for working online... There is a big room with bathroom and tv separate from the house for the people who will come to help us. We are from Switzerland and live here since three years, we speak French, English, Spanish and German. We define ourself as open mind, simple, jovial and we like to work in the land but need help ;-)
