  • Description


    We are a Spanish-Belgian couple and we live in the middle of the mountains and about 4 kilometers of a small town called Atzeneta del Maestrat.

    We have a small B&B and we are also both working outside so we can restaure an other masia we have.
    We have a lot of almond and olive trees and a vegetable garden. We live in a very beautiful place in the interior of the Valencia country with vieuw on the highest mountain of Castellon, the Peñagolosa 1800 meters.
    It is the perfect place to walk, run or mountainbike.

    We are real animal lovers and have 7 dogs, 12 cats, 4 vietnamese pigs, 2 donkeys, 3 sheep and some chickens.
    We like to meet new people and know diferent cultures.

    In summer we need help to clean and keep the swimmingpool, terraces, garden and animal houses neat and somethimes we also need some help with cooking. And yes our workewayers can use the swimmingpool. We also have free wifi.

    In other seasons we need help to prune trees and pick olives or almonds.
    There is always work to do in our Masia.

    Our place is at 4 km from a small town, we have bikes to use and if we go to town or to Castellon, we always ask our workawayer if je want to come. But maybe for some people we are a little bit isolated.

    Jose only speaks Spanish and Dutch. Sandy speaks Spanish, Dutch, French, English and a little German.

    We don't mind smokers but in the house it is forbidden to smoke.
    No problem for vegetarians, vegan is more difficult because we have to drive one hour to buy vegan food.

    Travellers can benefit from a really nice room with private bathroom in a really nice place with stunning vieuws. We have free wifi and I am a good cook (I love to cook and when posible with fresh products). We know well the area we live in, so we can inform you well about what to visit or walks to make.
    We are the ideal place to practice spanish, dutch, french or english.
    We are also very sociable and like to have people around. Jose speaks Spanish, Dutch and Sandy speaks English, Spanish, Dutch, French and a little bit of German.
    For those who loves animals, our dogs and most of our cats are very sociable and are always happy to see new faces. Even our sheep likes to go on a walk. Or donkeys go on a walk but only with us.

  • Help


    At some times of the year we need help to collect olives or prune the trees or somethimes to clean up our small forest. (cut some trees and cut them in pieces for the fire place) or to clean up the garden. And by an exception to help us build a fence or home for a new adopted animal. We always need help to keep clean the garden and the animal houses. And I like to cook but I also like that somethimes somebody cooks for me. (We both like to try new dishes)

    What else ...

    We do not allow smoking inside the room, and outside we ask to use ashtrays or keep the cigarettes ends until the garbage can.
    We also try to keep our place clean so we ask respect for the environment.
    In there free time workawayers can use our bikes, walk, relax, read...
    We are rather isolated, so for some people maybe it is to isolated. You must drive 4 kilometers to the nearest pub.
