  • Description


    We are an Italo-English family with two kids and two dogs, my husband, Clive, is an engineer and translator, I, Francesca, am a full-time mum and translator. Sole, is 4 years old and Oceano is 20 months. We only accept NON smokers - no exceptions. We eat normal food. Our house is a work in progress, we therefore need flexible people that aren't too picky. We offer a campervan for accommodation and three meals a day in exchange for 5 hours work. We would accept a man and couple with a child and dogs too. We are 15 km from the sea at Salou, and 20 from Tarragona. We own a finca on a hillside covered in pine trees. We have incredible views over the valley to the sea. We also own a 33' classic wooden sailing yacht.

    Campervan, 30 years old, simple with compost toilet outside but beside it, shower in our house with hot water only a bucket each shower because we collect rain water so we have to limit our daily use of water .Internet only to check emails but not for continued use, we don't have adsl. In the campervan there is a little kitchen with gas.

    What else ...

    We live on a hill looking out to sea, 2 km away from the first village, which has a bus stop for Reus hourly. We live off grid, therefore we do our best to use solar panels, to compost, to save water and to live in an alternative and eco-friendly manner.
