  • Description


    Hi my name is Roman, I am a 42 year old semi retired English teacher. I live on the border with Spain and Portugal.

    I brought a small disused farm last year and need help setting it up. The farm was disused since 2016 and there are lots of things that need fixing. However, we have a warm house with hot water, 3 bedrooms and a huge kitchen. In my opinion the best thing her is that we have a gym in the house. The house also has Internet and lots of parking if you have a car or camper van.

    I live right on the border with Spain and Portugal. I can walk to the border from my house. Where I live in really beautiful and it is so peaceful here. The capital of the province is only 20 minutes drive from me.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Down the road from us there are natural pools and waterfalls ( 3 - 5 minutes in the car )
    We have never built a farm before so I guess we will all be learning as we work together.
    We are on the boarder of Spain and Portugal so there are so many places to explore.
    We are surrounded by 4 big towns all within an hour and some as close as 15 minutes away.

    The village is tiny with only 300 people, there are natural swimming pools and waterfalls 10 minutes by walking from the house. So many people go there and swim in the day, it is really nice.
