We're a couple, living in the south of Catalonia, in a village but very close to nature. We just bought a new house and we're looking for people (non-smokers) who can give us a hand with some renovation/handyman work (we are busy untill November, so we won't be able to welcome anyone before the end of the year). We have a list of things we want to do, and our idea is that people can come a week or 2 to help us with a specific task in exchange for a free stay and food. I love cooking, so you definetly won't have to starve. If there is something you can't or don't eat, just let me know and I will adjust my cooking to it. The house consists of 2 seperate apartments, so you will have all the privacy you want. We live around 100m from the river, close to the delta, around 15min driving (or 35min biking) to the beach and about the same to the mountains.
DIY and building projects
Help around the house
If you are interested in Catalan language or Catalan cuisine, or Dutch language or Dutch cuisine, we can sure help with that :) We can not help you with spanish language.
We are looking for some handy people. There are quite some things we want to do in our new house. For example: make mosquito nets for all the windows, remove fake ceilings, install fake beam ceilings, build a new wall, put in new doors, repair some stuc work, install ceiling ventilators, paint walls/doors, change shower plate, install sliding door, build porch on roof terrace etc.
This host offers a language exchange
It would be great to find someone who either speaks Dutch, Catalan or German, so there won't be problems communicating. We can also help you with one of those languages if you are interested, though our German is quite basic. We do not speak Spanish, so if you are looking for a place to improve your Spanish, we can't help you with that.
You will have your own apartment with bedroom and bathroom. Only the kitchen, we will share during mealtimes.
We live close to the beach and close to the mountains. If you like hiking or biking, you're welcome to come along on our trips.
