    Description

    Hello! We are Sara and Thomas, 69 and 58 years old.
    We live in a farmhouse on the outskirts of the town of Artés, near Manresa, in the Province of Barcelona.
    We lived with our two cats, Lucas, Gordolón and our dog Yuca.
    Thomas is German and works as a carpenter in his workshop. He is also a passionate wood-dragons builder.
    Sara is Franco-Catalan and is currently engaged in the management of the rural house. She also works with Bach Flowers for animals.
    The farmhouse has a garden with a natural pool, in addition to the rural house (which we rent to tourists).
    There is also a bio garden that our companion Albert takes care of.
