    We are an extensive family of musicians with land in Garrotxa, the Catalan pre-Pyrenees, a land of rivers and mountains. We are three family units, with a large house shared between the two daughters and their families, a house for the grandmother and a modern yurt of 50 m2 where we want to welcome someone to help us with the land, the garden, the fruit trees, the chickens. etc We are 1km from Tortellà, a town with all the services and a lot of atmosphere

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We speak French, English, Italian, Spanish and Catalan, we are knowledgeable about the region, we have been here for more than 20 years and we can introduce you to many interesting people from the area. We are musicians and we have an Iberian music group (grandmother, daughters and granddaughter) with which we can exchange music and culture of the peninsula. The boys also have experience with bioconstruction in mud and lime, and one of them is a yurt builder.

  • Help

    Help

    We have a one-hectare farm, with a large orchard, many trees, fruit trees, chickens... We welcome someone to help us take care of the space, especially in terms of gardening, because although we are 7 people (2 children, 3 retirees and 4 young people), parenting and work do not allow us to keep the land in the conditions we want. Now we have a chicken coop and natural pool project that we want to start in October. The exchange we propose would be about 3 hours of help with the midday meal on the house. Breakfast and dinner would be your responsibility in the yurt equipped with a kitchen and bathroom.

    Tenemos una finca de una hectárea, con un huerto grande, muchos árboles, frutales, gallinas... Necesitamos a alguien que nos ayude a cuidar todo el espacio, sobretodo a nivel de jardinería, porque aunque somos 7 personas (2 niños, 3 jubilados y 4 jóvenes), la crianza y el trabajo no nos permiten mantener el terreno en las condiciones que queremos. Ahora tenemos un proyecto de gallinero y de piscina natural con el que queremos empezar en octubre.

    El intercambio que proponemos sería unas 3 horas de trabajo con la comida del mediodía a cargo de la casa. EL desayuno y la cena correría a cargo suyo en la yurta equipada con cocina y baño.

    Accommodation

    The accommodation is a yurt that we built 6 years ago, very large, bright and high, with windows. We lived there before. It would be private accommodation for the worker(s), with a kitchen, dry bathroom, Wi-Fi and their own piece of private garden.
