    Description

    I am Jose, a young man from Galicia, who seeks help to renovate a country house.

    I consider myself a close and friendly person. I love cinema, walking in the countryside, going to concerts and discovering new places and people. I am totally open minded and try to maintain a positive attitude in general.
    I currently manage a rural house that between my family and I have restored. It is located in the Ribeira Sacra, an area of ​​Galicia known for its natural landscapes, its wines and its Romanesque monasteries.

    I have decided to restore another house that is located on the Camino de Santiago to also put it into operation as a tourist accommodation.

    The house consists of two floors with four bedrooms, a large living room and kitchen. In addition it also has a large garden and a farm with lots of fruit trees and plants, soccer field and pool.

    .......................................................................................................................................

    Soy Jose, un joven ourensano que busca ayuda para renovar una casa de campo.

    Me considero una persona cercana y amigable. Me encanta el cine, pasear por el campo, ir a conciertos y descubrir nuevos lugares y gentes. Soy totalmente abierto de mente y trato de mantener una actitud positiva en general.
    Actualmente gestiono una casa rural que entre mi familia y yo hemos restaurado. Se encuantra en la Ribeira Sacra, una zona de Galicia conocida por sus paisajes naturales, sus vinos y sus monasterios romanicos.

    He decidido restaurar otra casa que se encuentra en pleno Camino de santiago para ponerla también en funcionamiento como alojamiento turistico.

    La casa constas de dos plantas con cuatro habitaciones, un amplio saloncomedor y cocina. Además también tiene un amplio jardín y una finca con gran cantidad de árboles frutales y plantas, campo de fútbol y piscina.

    El tiempo libre lo puedes dedicar a ti mismo o podemos hacer actividades en grupo: conocer la belleza natural de la zona, practicar senderismo, practicar deporte, salir de fiesta, visitar las ciudades de Galicia, ir a la playa un fin de semana, visitar la Ribeira Sacra, ...
    Me gustaría encontrar a una persona activa a la que le guste hacer diferentes actividades y descubrir

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

     You can dedicate your free time to yourself or we can do group activities: get to know the natural beauty of the area, go hiking, play sports, go partying, visit the cities of Galicia, go to the beach on a weekend, visit the Ribeira Sacra, go to the cinema, ... and of course, we can also share our languages and learn from each other.

    I would like to find an openminded and active person who likes to do different activities.

    There is also plenty of time to explore the stunning nature and visit the city of Ourense (only ten minutes away by bus from the house) . In addition I will take you along with me to show even more "hidden" secrets in Galicia and get to know about our culture, food and people.

    So be prepared to get your hands dirty but also enjoy life. ; )
