    Hi, welcome to the end of the world, kilometer zero of Camino de Santiago !

    ₹ please read full profile before applying

    Fisterra is a little fishing village of Galicia on the wild Atlantic coast that I call home after having travelled the world for 4+ years.

    Mature, free spirited woman, creative & intuitive, i feel very lucky to have experienced several lives in one, and to be the mother of two daughters who are now flying their own wings.

    I create pieces of eco art with recycled ocean materials - like tumbled ceramics, fishing lines, seaglass or driftwood - and have started to present them to the public through galleries & social medias.

    Will welcome in my house/studio enthusiastic artists & skilled creatives who will help me on this journey.

    Accommodation

    Small private room woth basic comfort - shared bathroom

    Please note :

    *️️️️️ no heating in the room : make sure to take warm clothes & footwear in winter for inside the house... or even to take a water bottle to warm up tour bed at night

    *️️️️️ i sometimes rent another room, so there might be pilgrims hanging around during your stay, with who you will have to share kitchen & bathroom as well

    for this reason, and personal preference, i need mindful, tidy & respectful volunteers, who will automatically arrange & clean after themselves when finished to eat or shower... not some times later

    *️️️️️ peaceful, non smoking/alcool environment.. my home is my piece of zen & creativity

    * a rescued kitten lives with me

    Life can be very slow & quiet from November to March, not many distractions or people around, are you creative and able to entertain yourself?
