We would want you to be part of our family during your stay, Gail is a great cook and is always willing to pass on her skills and knowledge but also enjoys learning new and exciting recipes. I can show you what i have learnt so far on the farm as we have only been here a couple of years and we learn something new almost everyday, I enjoy turning wood on my lathe, this is a new skill that i am eager to share and learn from more experienced people.
Depending on the time of year we would need help with the harvests, stone wall building and repairing, we have a slow on-going project involving a caravan, building eco toilet, shower and generally up dating the van, there could also be painting and decorating, general building maintenance, help increasing the size of our veggie plot
English, a little French
Caravan or cabin, the caravan is down in our olive grove, it does need work, which is one of the projects, the cabin is insulated and very comfortable, meals are included and an amount of alcohol too, breakfast is normally cereals, lunch a cold platter including cheese, bread, ham, diner is a cooked meal. Wifi is at the house and unlimited
The area is amazing and would love to share it with you, finding the flamingos on the delta, walking down the converted railway line to the hot springs, joining in with the locals at a fiesta, the area is very diverse and just waiting to be explored, we have two mountain bikes for your use. This is a very rural agricultural area, we do have a few neighbours although you would never know, at the end of a busy day we enjoy going to the beach (weather permitting) for a nice swim in the sea.There is a train station in Mora la Nova, which can take you to Barcelona orTarragona, buses go from Mora de Ebro offering a more local service
