  • Description


    We have lived in a remote village near Potes in the spectacular mountains of the Picos de Europa. We have built up what is now a well regarded self-catering holiday place. People come here from all over the world. They are nature lovers who find what they want here be it mountain walking, bird life, flowers, perfect peace, whatever. We, ourselves, have mainly retired so our son is in charge.

    We need help everywhere - in the office, the gardens, the apartments... everywhere. you’ll need to speak good Spanish and English, be computer literate and, above all, love nature. You’ll probably be older, possibly you’ll be travelling with an idea that you’d like to quit the rat race, make a lifestyle change

    We can host 1 or 2 people at a time and would like you to be able to stay for at least 2 months.'
