    Description

    Hello! My name is Clo and I live in Ortigueira, Galicia, Spain. I am renovating my house and starting to create the garden so I need help with all my projects. I work with lime mortars and my idea is to make a permaculture garden. I work from home and when I am very busy I can use someone who can help me at home with cleaning and cooking. As for accommodation, I have a very comfortable guest room although the house does not have great luxuries! I don't eat meat, I usually smoke in the kitchen and I don't speak English, but French, yes! The area is very beautiful, between sea and countryside. The house is located in the countryside and the nearest town is 10 minutes away by car. It is better to have your own vehicle to be able to move around and see beautiful things. See you!

    Hola!

    Me llamo Clo y vivo en Ortigueira, Galicia, España.

    Estoy reformando mi casa y empezando a crear la huerta así que necesito ayuda para todos mi proyectos. Trabajo con morteros de cal y mi idea es hacer una huerta en permacultura. Trabajo desde casa y cuando estoy muy atareada me viene bien alguién que me me pueda ayudar en casa con la limpieza y la comida.

    En cuanto al alojamiento, tengo un cuarto de invitado muy cómodo aunque la casa no dispone de grandes lujos!
    No como carne, suelo fumar en la cocina y no hablo inglés, pero francés, si!

    La zona es muy bonita, entre mar y campo. La casa esta ubicada en el campo y el pueblo más cercano está a 10 minutos en coche. Es mejor tener vehiculo propio para poder moverse y ver cosas bonitas.

    Nos vemos!
