  • Description

    Description

    We are a family made up of Vanessa (me), Monchy, Izan (11 years old), Enol (8 years old), 2 small dogs and 5 cats that live inside and outside the house. We live in a small town near the sea (we have a beach approximately 1km away), 14 km from Avilés and 17 from Gijón, from the largest cities in Asturias. The farm measures about 1000m2, surrounded by farms without buildings. The house has 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, living room and kitchen. Two of them just got new as we keep refurbishing and improving.
    Outside the house we have a small garden.

    Monchy is a sailor with a small boat. Izan is almost a vegetarian (he eats some fish-sushi-), the rest of us eat a little of everything. Izan is learning piano and Enol wants to learn saxophone.

    Lunch and dinner is usually prepared by me (Vanessa), because Monchy usually cooks little, but we are open to learning about new recipes and other cooks. Before COVID-19 I had a small vegetarian catering company, currently I do not work outside the home.

    In winter, the children go to school and some weekends we try to spend time in nature, taking small routes suitable for families and taking the opportunity to catch mushrooms, hazelnuts, chestnuts ... Whenever time and circumstances allow it.



    Somos una familia compuesta por Vanessa (yo), Monchy, Izan (11 años), Enol (8 años), 2 pequeños perros y 5 gatos que viven dentro y fuera de la casa. Vivimos en un pequeño pueblo cercano al mar (tenemos una playa a 1km aproximadamente), a 14 km de Avilés y 17 de Gijón, de las ciudades más grandes de Asturias. La finca mide unos 1000m2, rodeada de fincas sin edificaciones. La casa dispone de 2 dormitorios, 1 cuarto de baño, sala de estar y cocina. Dos de ellos acaban de hacerse nuevos, ya que seguimos reformando y mejorando.
    Fuera de la casa tenemos un pequeño huerto.

    Monchy es marinero con una pequeña barca. Izan es casi vegetariano (come algo de pescado - sushi-), los demás comemos un poco de todo. Izan está aprendiendo piano y Enol quiere aprender saxofón.

    La comida y cena normalmente es preparada por mi (Vanessa), porque Monchy suele cocinar poco, pero estamos abiertos a conocer nuevas recetas y a otros cocineros. Antes del covid-19 tenía una pequeña empresa de catering vegetariano, actualmente no trabajo fuera de casa.

    En invierno, los niños van al colegio y algún fin de semana intentamos pasar tiempo en la naturaleza, haciendo pequeñas rutas aptas para familias y aprovechar para coger setas, avellanas, castañas... Siempre que el tiempo y las circunstancias nos lo permiten.
