    Description

    Hello, we live isolated up in the green pristine mountains of Asturias which are buzzing with wild life, by the Natural Park of Redes. We're restoring an old stone house and also extending the organic vegetable plot.
    Food and accommodation (caravan) is provided in exchange for help to do a range of chores that suits you best like; building and removing dry stone walls, weeding, stock fencing, digging to get plots ready, mowing, planting, watering, pointing. Building work; plumbing, electrics... everything is needed!
    Activities such as caving, rock (and tree) climbing, trekking are possible in these wild mountainous surroundings. We speak both English and Spanish so if you'd like to practice a foreign language we can help you. I am not always at home as I run a little restaurant (5 tables) in "El Tozu" 5 km away from the house.
    We are 20 minutes drive from town and we usually go down once per week.
    Everyone willing to help is welcome! Sandra, Jono, 2 boys and baby



    Ya estamos de vuelta! Hola, vivimos en las verdes montanas de Asturias al lado del Parque Natural de Redes. Estamos reconstruyendo una antigua casa de piedra y ampliando el huerto ecológico.
    Ofrecemos como alojamiento una caravana y dar comida a cambio de ayuda en cualquiera de los muchos trabajos que se necesitan en el terreno o casa; quitar malas hierbas, plantar, regar, cavar terrazas para la ampliación del huerto, hacer cierres, tirar y reconstruir muros de piedra, segar, rejuntar paredes o ayudar con los niños, las tareas de la casa
    Estamos a 20 minutos en coche del pueblin y solemos bajar una vez a la semana.
    Cerca hay cuevas, pistas de escalada, rutas de trecking y otras actividades que tienen que ver con la naturaleza. Hablamos en ingles y español, si a alguien le interesa practicar una lengua extranjera podemos ayudarte.
    Bienvenido todas las parejas que quieran ayudar! Sandra, Jono y 2 nenos y un bebé.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    A different way of living!! Isolated and inmerse in the mountains with difficult access. Learn as we do about growing our own crops and reconnecting with nature. You will find some peace and quiet if you wish or come to the village where we run a little bar and get the real rural Asturias and North of Spain! If we have spare time we can visit secret Asturian places :) Tell us, what would you like to get in exchange?
