  • Description


    ***Please contact this host in Spanish only***

    We are a family that has lived in the countryside for 6 generations. Currently, my parents, my children, my partner and myself reside in the house. For all generations we have been cultivating the land. Now, in addition to cultivating the land and the garden, we have a rural lodging and do horse riding.

    I am Joan, I am a farmer, I live in a country house located in the Baix Empordà, province of Girona. We grow cereals, fodder, orchard and olive trees. We also have a small self-consumption farm and an animal shelter space. We also have 22 horses that accompany us on the routes we do with our clients. We need people who love horses with a good level of riding to ride and ride our horses in times that are not on the road and thus keep them in shape. I also wish they could teach me to speak English.
