    We are in the process of adding a bathroom and then will be set up for working visitors. We are located in an old village on the river Mino in Lugo, Galicia. The area is a deep river valley and the village, mostly abandoned, is surrounded by forest, with large vineyards nearby. The area is full of wildlife and historic buildings and it is only 10 mins by car from the busy little town of Ferreira, and 25 mins from historic Monforte de Lemos with its numerous cafe's and medieval centre. The village is not far from the Winter Pilgrim Route to Santiago. It has no public transport.

    We have plenty of outdoor task to be done on a large organic vegetable garden, a small vineyard, a berry plot, and several other abandoned plots of land we are bringing back into use. We are also renovating and restoring an old house and need some stone walls repaired.

    We are a meat eating household, and the dogs could do with a lot more exercise and human company.

    I do some internet work from home.

    Great location for walking, cycling (seriously as its hilly) and enjoying nature. Also loads of historic buildings and the river to enjoy. There is no public transport to the village but I go into the nearby towns most days and three days a week and some nights I am in Monforte where there are many cafes and social activities. Excellent transport from Monforte by bus or train all over Spain, and buses go from the local small town to Monforte.

    I work from home but have flexible hours.
