  • Description


    Hello! We live in the middle of the beautiful Pyrenees, almost off the grid, in harmony with our surroundings, rebuilding an old barn used for animals decades ago, to create an eco and sustainability way of living, could you help me?
    The idea is to share this privilege place with volunteers who want to enjoy our journey around nature and animals in a very relaxing way of living.
    We will need some help in restoration the inside and out of stone face in the house, knowledge in ecological gardening is always welcome and house chores is part of the trade, taking care of the animals ( two cats called Titan & Susin and one special dog called Lolo ), prepping and chopping wood for winter mixed with the best sunsets of the Pyrenees is what we offer.
    It has been a summer house for a long time, however, three years ago the project started all year around.
    We offer a comfortable place where you can rest, a very intimate house but with little privacy.
    Hoz is a town of 23 habitants and has a bar steps from the house.
    It is three kilometers from the main road, so you will need your own transportation to move in your days off, also we offer hikes around by walk or by car so we can share rides sometimes.
    This is a paradise where real estate investment has not arrived.

    Hola! Muy buenas, estoy intentando reconstruir una cuadra, en un pueblito para crear un lugar ecologico y sostenible, me ayudas? La idea es poder compartir este lugar privilegiado. Es una cuadra pajar. Por dónde empezar!? Hay que rejuntar piedra, aislar tejado , entre otras muchas cosas , pero si juntamos manos seguro que lo conseguimos. Durante mucho tiempo ha sido casa de veraneo, así que con poco se podía estar, ahora que vivo, todo el año, necesita avanzar en muchos campos para que sea fácil de calentar .
    La casa tiene tres plantas, es realmente un lugar privilegiado. Hoz es un pueblo de 23 habitantes, tiene un bar junto a la casa.
    Esta a tres kilómetros de la carretera general, por lo que disponer de vehiculo seria buena idea para tener movilidad.
    Salimos de ruta una o dos veces por semana desde casa o desde zonas cercanas en coche, hay miles de rutas. Un lugar donde la inversión inmobiliaria no ha llegado.
