    Description

    ¡Ayudanos a practicar Español!

    We are Roar (5 years old), Liv (3 years old) Tarje and Signe, a Danish family recently emigrated to Asturias, Spain. We have found our dream home in the mountains of Quiros and are currently working to restore the big stone house and planting/planning a permaculture/vegetable garden and a food forest whilst making the most of the beautiful area around us for hiking/climbing/playing. Our home is in the previously abandoned (there is now us and a very nice English couple living here) village of Eros, totally offgrid and (so far) only accessible on foot.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are very keen learners in a range of subjects such as eco-spirituality, herbalism, permaculture, handcrafting and eco-construction. Our kids are quite "free-range" in the spirit of permaculture and we love to have an active lifestyle yet treasure opportunities for self-care/and personal growth. Tarje especially loves climbing so if the weather permits and you are interested we would love to take you out to a local crag one day.

    We would love to host someone interested in playing and engaging with children as we would mainly aim to spend as much family time as possible with you. We will either be at home playing/doing some light work in the garden or going out for excursions in the local area or visiting friends.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Quiros is one of the Valles de Trubia, famous for hiking, climbing and biking. We're very close to the Parque Natural Ubiñas La Mesa and also only one hour from the beach and 45 mins from the capital of Asturias, Oviedo. Not to mention the numerous local markets in the villages of the valleys. So there's plenty to get away and see and do and we're pretty flexible with regards to which days you want to spend with us and which you want to have as free-time. We would prefer if you have your own car but it's not a must, there's a busstop (with connection to Oviedo and beyond) about 3 km down the hill where we can pick up/drop off.
