    Description

    My name is Esther, I live with my 9-year-old son Joel in a small neighborhood in the municipality of Olba, in Teruel. The house we live in is a recently completed project with great enthusiasm, with ecological materials and bioconstruction criteria. At this time we want to condition the outside environment to create a beautiful garden and a small orchard, can you help us? We would also like to learn / practice English so we also accept guests who can offer us this exchange. If you like nature, you will love coming to spend a few days in the Olba valley, the Mijares river and the small neighborhoods located on its banks generate a very special landscape. Here you can do activities such as hiking, climbing, mountain biking, biodanza, yoga, Pilates, ... or simply take a bath in the river or a quiet walk along one of the many beautiful paths.

    Me llamo Esther, vivo con mi hijo Joel de 9 años en un pequeño barrio del municipio de Olba, en Teruel.

    La casa en la que vivimos es un proyecto realizado recientemente con mucha ilusión, con materiales ecológicos y criterios de bioconstrucción. En este momento queremos acondicionar el entorno exterior para crear un bonito jardín y un pequeño huerto ¿nos ayudas? También nos gustaría aprender/practicar inglés por lo que también aceptamos invitad@s que nos puedan ofrecer este intercambio.

    Si te gusta la naturaleza, venir a pasar unos días en el valle de Olba te encantará, el río Mijares y los pequeños barrios ubicados en sus márgenes, generan un paisaje muy especial. Aquí puedes realizar actividades como senderismo, escalada, BTT, biodanza, yoga, pilates, ... o simplemente darte un baño en el río o un tranquilo paseo por alguno de los muchos bonitos caminos.

    Help

    We need help to clear the land around the house, as well as to prepare a path that goes down to the river, it would be good to know how to use the brush cutter. On the other hand, to start up the garden and plant trees and shrubs in the garden. We may also be interested in English-speaking people with whom we can practice the language.

    Necesitamos ayuda para desbrozar el terreno que hay alrededor de la casa, así como también para acondicionar un sendero que baja hasta el río, vendría bien saber utilizar la desbrozadora. Por otro lado, para poner en marcha el huerto y plantar árboles y arbustos en el jardín.

    También nos pueden interesar personas de habla inglesa con las que podamos practicar el idioma.

Eso sí, compartiremos el baño y la cocina. Nos gusta cuidar nuestra alimentación, si tienes alguna necesidad especial háznoslo saber con antelación sin problema.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    In your free time you can enjoy nature and the environment but also in the town there are usually activities in which you can meet and share with other people, such as the Sunday market held on the second Sunday of each month. You will need your own vehicle to be able to move around here, since the neighborhood in which we live is 7 km from the main center of Olba where the store, bars, etc. are located, although there are many other small villages in the middle.

    En tu tiempo libre puedes disfrutar de la naturaleza y el entorno pero también en el pueblo suele haber actividades en las que puedes conocer y compartir con otras personas, como por ejemplo mercadillo dominguero que se celebra el segundo domingo de cada mes.

    Necesitarás vehículo propio para poder moverte por aquí, ya que el barrio en el que vivimos se encuentra a 7 km del núcleo principal de Olba donde está la tienda, los bares, etc., aunque por en medio hay otras muchas pequeñas aldeas.
