    Description

    hola! Would you like to spend a while peacefully experiencing nature? come to visit me.I enjoy meeting people and learning. I take care of a small farm in a lost village in the mountains.
    I live in a house next to the farm where I live with my parents and where the rest of the family (sisters and nieces) come every weekend to help with the chores.
    I can offer you a house recovered from an old block and completely restructured and furnished with three bedrooms and two bathrooms as accommodation. A meadow to set up a tent or park a camper with access to a bathroom and kitchen always in the renovated house.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I'm looking for volunteers who are open-minded and patient with my basic English. My nieces, three teenagers with good English, will be happy to show you the most biodiverse areas and explain the tasks involved and help volunteers to learn Spanish. The main responsibility is to watch over the cows and sheep, making sure they don't wander onto other people's land. This is a daily task during spring and summer, lasting 4 hours, starting around noon. So, volunteers will be working with the sheep and cows, either independently or alongside my nieces.In fall and winter, the focus shifts to collecting firewood for the stove, keeping the stables clean, and feeding the livestock.

    Accommodation

    We have a large house with two common bathrooms. There is a double room and a single room available. We also offer a shared kitchen and a washing machine for clothes.
    I can offer you vegetables, meat, milk, cheese and honey from my farm depending on the time of year and the current production, but in general you have to take care your own food and cooking, street vendors of fresh food come to town or you can stock up on the town of Cervera de Pisuerga which has all the services and is 20 km away. You can cook in the kitchen of the house that I offer you because it has all the comforts. There is also a vegetarian restaurant in the town.
