    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. Firewood, fencing, Light building; plumbing, electrics... Housework, help with children, their homework, baby and cooking??... 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

    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?
