My name is Neis. I live with my dog Michelle and her friend Peque in a very small village in La Rioja Alta, near Haro: Herramélluri. Well, my friends are also running around. Sometimes they come and go.
Near two years ago I started the restoration of an old mill - warehouse and I have travelled these months learning a little to build and often not to succumb between the omnipresent dust of the first steps and my own shadows thanks to successive waves of crazy dreams and flowers and sometimes, even, traps.
Occasionally I feel overwhelmed and build something that is useless at all, but it brings me a fun day.
The project is in continuous movement and always at the beginning, but it is perfectly habitable, quite welcoming and creative. You will breathe very good energy. I think we will never finish to build this dream and... I`m sure this is the best of all. It means that we are still alive.
Help in the house
There are a lot of things to do. It will be very easy for you to find something you love doing with complete freedom to apply our artistic footprint and, well, we hope to learn together from each other.
I share what I am and what I have here and the place gives us the gift of sunsets in fire and wine and... sometimes some friend will help us to create passionate moments.
We love music and feel alive; usually a litte against the flow. My friends and me are... suddenly we´ve just arrived from the trunk of the sixties. So, they are old hippies, a little musicians, a little poets, but... not me, of course. I just love my female friends give me rags to get dressed.
I feel them as good and interesting humans. Survivors.
Trying to build two greenhouses using old windows of wooden and glass. Paint works, wall arrangements, farming the vegetable garden and... sure you will have your own ideas once you are here.
Working with a very low cost budget, then whenever possible I am using recycled materials of the place and I try to apply artisanal construction techniques. Now I would be interested in people with experience in carpentry. Any case every help is welcome and I value specially human contact and sharing experiences.
The accommodation is in my own home, in a confortable private room for the guests with a large bed and a good bathroom and kitchen shared with me, like the rest of the house. My friends say that I am a good host; of those who let each one be as he is.
We are in the western end of La Rioja, the land of wines. The Way to Santiago runs very close; Santo Domingo de La Calzada is just eight km far. You will find us in a rural environment in the middle valley of the Rio Tirón, sheltered by the mountains of La Demanda. Herramélluri has barely 100 inhabitants.
Two thousand years ago the place was populated by an important Roman settlement on the route to the northern Castilian plateau.
There are communications by public transport to Haro (18km), Logroño (50km), Vitoria (60km) or Bilbao (90km) and also to Burgos, Zaragoza or Madrid through Santo Domingo de La Calzada. Railway station in Miranda de Ebro, 20 km.
I have no vehicle but I get transport when necessary. I have pets; I live with Michelle and a cat.
