  • Description


    We are a family that works in the area of hospitality and services. Every project we have done has been very hard and that makes us feel really proud. Our home is located in Ribes de Freser, Catalunya. Only 2 hours by train from the center of Barcelona. Surrounded by the most beautiful nature and mountains, the Ribes valley is located at the confluence of three rivers: the Rigat, the Segadell and the Freser, which form a Y-shaped village.

    Both Ribes and its surroundings are places that have a lot to offer. Its cool and pleasant climate during the summer, the beauty of its landscapes, the natural sources of water and the proximity to the big ski resorts, have made it a privileged place for summer holidays and mountain tourism.

    Somos una familia que trabajamos en el área de la hospitalidad y servicios. Cada proyecto que hemos realizado ha sido con mucho esfuerzo y eso nos hace sentir realmente orgullosos. Nuestro hogar se encuentra en Ribes de Freser, Catalunya. A tan solo 2hs en tren desde el centro de Barcelona. Rodeado de la mas bella naturaleza y montañas el valle de Ribes se encuentra en la confluencia de tres ríos: el Rigat, el Segadell y el Freser, que forman un pueblo con forma de Y.

    Tanto Ribes como sus alrededores son sitios que tienen mucho para ofrecer. Su clima fresco y agradable durante el verano, la belleza de sus paisajes, las fuentes naturales de agua y la cercanía a las grandes estaciones de esquí, han hecho que sea un lugar privilegiado para el veraneo y el turismo de montaña.

  • Help


    This summer, my family and i want to build a wooden tiny house (6x5m) for personal use.
    We are looking for helpers with experience in construction, mostly wood work or even welding.
    The construction site is in the woods near our house, 400 meters away from a small village in the Catalan Pyrenees. It is a peaceful place surrounded by nature.
    We have all the material, tools and space necessary, we're only missing time and a few more experienced hands to help!
    If you're interested or if you need more details, please contact us :)
    Thank you,
