    Description

    Hi! My name is Xacobe, I am a teacher in an Audiovisual school and in my free time and my vacations I dedicate myself to taking care of a family home and its farm. It is an old stone house from 1868 and a farm with a garden and various types of trees. It is located in the Ría de Aldán, next to a beach, which makes it an attractive place also to enjoy the sea and the beautiful landscape of the Rias Baixas in Galicia. In the house there are also two small sailboats and several kayaks to enjoy sailing through the bay.

    Knowledge in gardening and carpentry will be especially appreciated.

    I offer food and accommodation. I cannot accommodate more than one person at a time. Nor can I stay for long periods at this time. The perfect stay for me is one week.

    Hola! mi nombre es Xacobe, soy profesor en una escuela Audiovisual y en mi tiempo libre y mis vacaciones me dedico a cuidar de una casa familiar y su finca. Se trata de una casa antigua de piedra de 1868 y una finca con jardín y diversos tipos de árboles. Está situada en la Ría de Aldán, al lado de una playa, lo cual hace que sea un lugar atractivo también para disfrutar del mar y el hermoso paisaje de las Rias Baixas de Galicia. En la casa hay también dos pequeños veleros y varios kayaks para disfrutar navegando por la Ría.

    Serán apreciados sobretodo los conocimientos en jardinería y carpintería.

    Ofrezco comida y alojamiento. No puedo alojar a más de una persona a la vez. Tampoco puedo alojar por largos periodos en este momento. La estancia perfecta para mí es de una semana.

    The farm is also a good place to rest and enjoy a good barbecue with friends.
    There are also many beautiful places to visit nearby such as the Atlantic Islands natural park, with the Cies Islands and the Ons Islands and many others.

    Por supuesto, no todo es trabajo y la casa tiene una ubicación perfecta para disfrutar de la playa y del sol del verano.
