    We are a family of four,: Juan, Violeta (13), Pablo (18) and Eva (me)
    Juan is Computer technician and I am a teacher for Profesional Training (renewable energy and electricity).
    Pablo is studying German filology in Madrid, and comes home now and then.
    We have a field where we are planting trees, both for a fruit garden and for renaturing, so there are some planting, work and gardening.
    We also have two cats, please note it for allergies.

    We live in the country at about 5km of the sea.
    Our house lies directly on the Camino de Santiago, so you can meet a lot of pilgrims from all around the world.
    Cantabria is a quiet place between mountains and sea. It´s really a place to know.
    If you like trekking, hiking, diving, surfing, this is the place to come.

    Our house is and tipical old house renewed with organic materials using renewable energy, solar and biomass.
    We have a small garden and this summer a small pool.

    Our priority is to plant about 40-50 trees, building some wind protection for them. Perhaps some watering pipes, from rainwater, Some of the works need of two persons, and we will help.

    The schedule would be working in the morning and free time after. You will have your free time for your own, but if you want we can do some sightseeing in the afternoon or some weekend.

    We love the culturall exchange, and learning another languages helps to understand better other people. Violeta wants to practice French or English, and Pablo studies German filology and needs to pass B2 next year. So, we would prefer workawayer that speak these languages

    2 km away is Santillana del Mar, a middle-age village, with prehistoric pictoric caves, that is nowadays a touristic village because of these interesant resources. In the last years there is a lot of cultural offer, always something to do, busy

    Near is also, one of our favourite trips: Picos de Europa. Beautiful mountains up to 2500m high. There are excursions for everyone, trekking, walking, with the car…..
