Séjour min. souhaité : Au moins deux semaines
Hello, we live in between the village in the nature and the town where the school is by the Portuguese border.
At the village, we´ve got a big piece of land to take care of, with some buildings.
Because of school/work weekly rutines we are mostly not present and we can only offer sharing/exchange during the weekends, share principal meal (2-3pm) fridays (we arrive at 14:30 on Fridays, and we would ask you to prepare that meal for having lunch together at that time) would be , saturdays and sundays, what also applies for helping exchange (a maximum of 14 hours a week), which only can be done (normally in this timetable 10-14 and 17-20(depending on daytime hours), friday afternoon, saturday or sunday (to agree together depending on needs), although we can provide accomodation full-time.
On that school time from september until june we would need help with general maintenance of the buildings/houses and gardens/fences/trees.
For summer school holidays time (22 of July to 10 of September) we have different needs and timetables, added that first of all, we are looking for somebody to housesit/petsit the place so we can go on holidays, at the time that we need somebody to be a cohost on the bnb accomodation. That is mainly, tidying and cleaning up after somebody leaves and before somebody comes. Ask for more details if you are interested. We may agree cohosting economic reward from the cleaning fee if it may be of interest.
Activities range between giving some atention to the dog and to the property, gardening and building/maintenance mostly, and/or possibly some help on the house, cooking and tiding/cleaning.
We love to share and be in between travelers and openminded people. We need help with the maintenance of the place, of the trees, the gardens, the water channels, wood, the houses and warehouses...so trustfull people with knowledge of gardening and DIY or building would be desired.
If you like kids or have some of the age range of Antón(9), that would be wonderfull, and likes survival, lego, animals, etc. Of course it would be perfect to have other kids same age range arround.
I , Antía (42) used to work on organic vegetable production and travel before. At the moment trying to work as teacher or resercher on humanities subjects. I like nature, history, sociology, philosophy, to have a talk on interesting subjects, etc. easy people, no ortodox of nothing...
I´m very interested in english speaking people so Anton gets the language while we share and talk, czech is also his third "father language" so also interesting, but portuguese, italian and french also like to listen and practice.
50 meters down from our house is passing the Uma river, with its waterfalls, and a 2,5 trekking beautiful path by wonderfull forests. 10 minutes away, there are Btt tracks .
A few kms away, there is Vilasobroso medieval Castle, Ponteareas town center, Castro de Troña, Mondariz Balneario and some thermal baths. A bit further is Salvaterra de Miño and portuguese border in Moncao. And like a bit less than an hour drive are the beautifull beaches of Ria de Vigo, Aldán and Pontevedra, Baiona, Nigran, etc. For snorkling, surfing, etc. Vigo city is 40 minutes away and St James path is passing 15 kms away from us, by Porriño.

We need help with the day a day duties, depending on your preferences, skills and the time you´ll spend here, there is a lot of things needed to be done, none urgent, but all wishable, gardening (taking care of the vegetable garden, streamiing, prunning, decorating) , building (isolating a warehouse and changing the roof, covering the walls, installing door or window, improving the path down), a tree house or art work to improve the warehouse walls are also in between the ideas, but day a day, cleaning, cooking , tiding would also help a lot.
Cet hôte propose un échange linguistique
Me interesa practicar y mejorar todos los idiomas que figuran entre mis idiomas y también que mi hijo conviva con ellos. Estoy abierta a conocer otros también. I´m open to practise and improve every language that I wrote above and also happy if my son does. Also open to learn other ones.
The accomodation may vary depending on the moment.
At the moment we can offer a room in the house, or the camper-van, but better ask/confirm in case we have changes and forget updating.
We´ll share the bigest meal on weekends, if we are together there to do between 2p.m. and 3p.m. normally that me ,you or together cook (I do not know if call it lunch or dinner, but that´s the usual timing in Spain). I don´t really like to compromise on dinner because we don´t always prepare something and timetables can be difficult to follow, and for the moment prefer not to compromise. You can use anything you can find growing on the property for eat in any case, there are different things depending on the season and works done: apples, berries, figs and wild eatable plants (I´ve use them better for salad than the lettuce itself and I can teach you on them utilities and properties), kale, herbs, etc.
Working time will be of 14 hours a week and would be decided when depending on the light hours (diferent depending on the season), the school timetable, the kind of job, the experience and the preferences of host and volunteers. We can talk about it on arrival or before setting it out.
There is other people possibly living on the property too.
There is beautifull nature arround, forests, river and sea with beautiful beaches not so far. Towns to visit nearby are Salvaterra, Ponteareas, Moncao (Portugal), Ourense and Vigo. Termal waters, trekking, biking, surfing, etc.
Public transport from the village is very limited, but from Ponteareas, 4kms away is every hour to Vigo almost, I can lend you the bike, or you can use our ways, monday to friday out at 9:30 and back, 17:30. We can leave you in Salvaterra, Ponteareas, Salceda de Caselas, and once a week in Pontevedra and Barcia de Mera (ask for updating in case of changes).
