  • Descripción


    We reside in a quaint village nestled amidst majestic mountains, boasting an age-old residence and expansive garden. Our location is in close proximity to the Spanish border, offering access to prime mountain passes, reminiscent of those graced by the Tour de France. This idyllic setting also harbours exceptional hiking trails, a climbing centre situated within the former Roman marble quarry within our village, and opportunities for thrilling activities like canyoning and kayaking nearby. For your convenience, the village features essential amenities, including major shops, a post office, and a pharmacy.

    Before reaching out to us, we ask that you thoroughly peruse our complete profile and confirm how you envisage assisting us.

    Guidance and training will be provided prior to commencing any task, and we'll always carry out the tasks together, facilitating on-the-spot guidance and training as needed. While no specific expertise is necessary, individuals with prior DIY, decorating, and gardening experience would be appreciated.

    Additionally, please ensure that you possess an appropriate visa and health insurance. You will be asked to present your passport/ID and provide contact details for your next of kin.

    Familiarity with preparing delectable vegetarian dishes would help. We will take turns in meal preparation and cleanup, including routine cleaning of communal spaces.

    Sorry but we cannot accommodate smokers and/or alcohol consumers of any kind.

    We believe in having a lot of leisure time, enjoying household and garden time, as well as exploring the enchanting surroundings, whether by car, bicycle, or on foot. We eagerly anticipate the opportunity to introduce you to this captivating region.

    Feel free to reach out for additional information.

  • Alojamiento


    Most of the time, we can provide our helpers with their own room. However, on occasion, when we have more than three helpers, room sharing with a fellow helper of the same gender may be necessary, unless, of course, a couple is staying with us. This arrangement will be discussed and clarified prior to your arrival. Please note that bathroom and shower facilities are shared among our helpers.
