We are Alice and Mel an ‘older’ female couple living in a large rural farmhouse, which used to be run as a riding holiday business, in Cataluña, Spain. Finca San Juan is set in its own tranquil valley, the Sebes nature reserve is within walking distance, next to the mighty river Ebro and only 3 kilometres from our local village of Flix. We are now retired and looking for help to maintain the old house and large garden.

Our village of Flix has a historical background from the Spanish civil war and as far back as the Moors with an ancient fort still standing. Our workaways will learn to live ‘off grid’. There will be a great opportunity to improve language skills as the rural village setting has very little English and no ‘tourist’ aminities.
General maintenance of house and patio including prep and painting of house exterior. General gardening, including weeding, strimming, pruning of trees and sawing of wood for fire. Cleaning of outdoor pool.
Travellers will have a private, en-suite, twin room with small sitting areas. Bedding, towels, basic toiletries and laundry provided. Free WiFi. Use of large pool, weather permitting.
Lunch and evening meals, bottled water, tea and coffee will be provided....sorry but we cannot cater for ‘special’ diets.
Our finca is fairly rural, 3 kilometres from a well serviced town with restaurants and bars. There are various activities provided by local agencies including kayaking, fishing, wine tasting, tours of the towns historic areas, paddle courts etc. There is an excellent train service from the village with daily trains direct to the coast and Barcelona or inland to Zaragoza and Madrid. Because of the rural, secluded situation of our finca we feel that this placement is best suited to a couple or at least two people travelling together.
