  • Description


    We live here at the bend of the river since 1983. It is down from the tiny village of San Lorenzo, 5Km from A Lama, and 27 Km from Pontevedra land inwards.
    It’s a very beautiful place with a small crystal clear river surrounding the house, absolutely quiet. I'm living here since 1983, I am vegetarian, speak Spanish, English and German. My profession was TV repairing, but doing almost anything, repairing all kinds of electric machines, motors, pluming etc. I love carpenter work, and gardening, always new inventions, the last project was installing a new water generator to produce our own electricity.
    We have plenty of room, central heating with wood, solar panels, unlimited best spring water.
    We also have a water mill to grind our flower and stone oven with a sauna to beak our own bread.
    I´m retired, like to share our paradise with people who are willing to help us.
    Depending on your abilities shure you can find something to do here.
    We have 2 dogs 3 cats and a donkey, I love animals and children, please contact us
    Love and peace. Jürgen
