We are a friendly Aussie (female) couple looking for people who help us to build our dream. We bought a 17th century house in a small hamlet outside Ferreira de Panto in Lugo province. We have a cat and a small dog. Our house, will operate as a B&B, and retreat house for artists/writers/cand Camino pilgrims who have finished the Camino Invierno route. We will also work a small-holding that will provide fresh, organic vegetables, fruit and eggs for our guests.
We would love to have some fun people come to stay, and give us a hand to maintain our lovely old house. The worker's room is big, comfy and nicely furnished. There's a private sitting area to chill in, as well as a lovely garden terrace. There is a private bathroom upstairs,and there's free wifi. The surrounding area is scenic, historic and handy for transport/travelling around. There's a 12th Century convent and a small vineyard next-door.
There are lots of local recreational activities and wonderful places to visit. Our village has an outdoor swimming pool, open during July/August, and a lovely river beach is only 10 mins drive away. There's parking for a car/van, and if anyone wants to pitch a tent we are happy for them to do so.
The house is only 15 mins drive from Montfort de Lemos. The local village is only a 5 minute walk, and it has all amienities such as banks, pharmacies, shops, cafes, mini-markets and a library.
