  • Description


    Hello everyone, this is Maria and I love to be in contact with foreigners. They always bring new knowledge and interesting things to know about. I've been a traveler for quite a long period, but now it came the time to build my and my family's nest. So we are living on Mallorca in a beautiful restored countryside house and there is quite a lot of things to get entertained with. . . Truthly said there isn't any big project started but keeping the house and land beautiful and shiny.
    We are a family of 4, two children (8 and 5 years old), my husband and I.
    We would love to host a person who can just share his/her experiences and can give us a hand with the kids, house and garden.
    Our workawayer will have no fix timetable... Work can be done either morning or afternoon, depending on the volunteer wishes and on the everyday situation... and it will definitely not be any longer than 4-5 hours a day! However, we will really appreciate the minimum of hours fulfillment.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I am a Mallorcan woman married to a German. Our traditions and ways of doing things are pretty much Mallorcan, although if a traditional person comes he/she may say the opposite.
    Our home is ideal for learning about/from nature. It's located near a little village and it has wonderful surroundings. It's just a 15 minutes drive to the sea. Town with all you may need is also nearby...

  • Help


    Help will mainly consist of cleaning the house, doing some gardening and spending time with the little ones. Our kids are being raised with 4 languages. And we'd really love our workawayer to be able to give us a hand with this. So if you can speak either English or German fluently would be really helpful:)
    Gardening means, basically, removing weeds and cleaning up some room for future planting...

  • Accommodation


    It is a countryside house, surrounded by small plots (Mallorca's countryside). It is a rustic style house. You will get your own bedroom and probably bathroom, too! If you like music, our home is a great place to be as we have a piano, a drum set and left-handed guitars!
    Mallorca is mostly known for its night clubs and parties near the capital, but it's actually a lot more than that. It has an amazing coast all around and an extremly tradicional unspoilt inland landscape... Being with locals is by far the best way to get to know this magical island.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    There are a lot of options to do when off, e.g. coast line visit, countryside walk/bike, mountain range (Serra de Tramuntana) visit, city sightseeing...
    We have a bicycle that can be borrowed. Transport is a bit of a problem as connections and timetables are pretty bad. The best thing would be to have a scooter or even a car to move around. . . we would have to talk about it...
