    Description

    Hello! We are a small family, Artur (43), Cristina (37) and Conrad (0) our baby. We live in Cellera de Ter, between Gerona and Olot, in the province of Gerona, in Catalonia, Spain. We are in a small farmhouse on the outskirts, about 5 minutes by car from the town, in a scattered area, surrounded by fields and mountains. We have neighbors around, about 3 or 4 houses.

    Artur currently works as a self-employed handyman and housekeeper in the surrounding area, and Cristina does not work but is finishing her psychology studies online and is mothering our first child.

    Different profiles of workawayers would be good for us, for example: someone who knows house maintenance, both as a plumber, trowel, carpenter, etc. like gardening; Also someone who knows how to cook and clean the house; or someone who knows and likes raising babies. The farmhouse where we live is old and needs improvements. It has 3 floors, and the top floor is where it needs the most work.

    Distintos perfiles de workawayers nos irian bien, por ejemplo: alguien que sepa de mantenimiento de casas, tanto de lampista, paleta, carpintero, etc. como de jardineria; tambien alguien que sepa cocinar y limpiar la casa; o alguien que sepa y le guste la crianza de bebés.
    La masia donde vivimos es antigua y precisa de mejoras. Tiene 3 plantas, y la planta de arriba del todo es donde necesita más trabajo.
