First of all, I'm sorry about the out of date photos but I can't find a way to update them! Sadly, Alfonso passed away on August 3rd 2022. I will be needing help in the house and garden
The area is very pleasant, just 4 kms inland from the prettiest landscapes on the Costa Brava and there are hills too where you can go hiking. We no longer have a dog, but for animal lovers or people who enjoy being occupied there are municipal kennels for stray or unwanted dogs where you can work .
I also enjoy the cultural and personal exchange that Workaway offers.

Cultural exchange and learning opportunities
I am British but I know Spain and Catalonia very well. I also know a bit about gardening and international cookery.
Helpers' duties typically consist in gardening, keeping me company during the afternoon and evening plus cooking some dinner. At the moment there's not a lot to but the garden does need some attention. If you get bored, you might want to help in the municipal dog kennels Apa Rodamòn (aparodamon.com) that are quite near where we live.
I won't be able to do lifting or hard physical work for some time as I had a lumpectomy operation in August. I enjoy walking, swimming and cooking and practising languages and enjoy meeting new people.
This host offers a language exchange
I am a native English speaker also fluent in French, Spanish and Catalan. I am studying Russian and Euskera (very challenging! ).
You will be upstairs with your own bathroom, study and terrace. Usually this arrangement works OK.
What else ...
In your time off you can visit Barcelona, Girona or the Dali museum in Figueres. You can go cycling, swimming, hiking etc. There is no train but the bus service (SARFA) is not bad and the station is very close to our house.
