  • Description


    About us: We are Penny and Chris and have bought and moved to a beautiful finca in Aragon, Spain in January 2023. We are British but have lived for nearly 20 years in France so don't feel very English anymore. We moved from the South of France to Spain because we prefer the more relaxed way of life in Spain and the price of land is so much cheaper than in the South of France. Our finca is situated about 10 minutes over the border from Catalonia and Catalan is spoken in this area more than Spanish.

    We have 7 hectares of beautiful land consisting of an olive grove, an almond grove and a lot of barley fields. The barley fields are organically maintained by the local farmer which helps us keep the huge amount of land looking amazingly green. We are a private homestead and are only producing for our own consumption and to become as self-sufficient as possible.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    We are completely off grid so you would gain experience with off grid living if this interests you. We have had a new solar system fitted very recently which is so much better than what we had when we first moved in and we are lucky enough to have our own ancient well with water that is pumped up for grey water. (We are hoping to have it tested soon so we will also be able to drink it). Other little things, If you want to improve your English we can help with that by speaking English with you, I freelance as a web developer if you are interested in learning anything to do with that, Chris plays guitar and flies drones which might be of interest. We are learning a lot also right now so you would be able to learn with us :).

    We are currently urgently looking for workaways who offer the following experience: tiling, brick laying, plumbing, general building, organic gardening knowledge. We have lots of projects on the go since moving here early in 2023. Here are just some things we have started and would love some help with: we need to continue getting our vegetable garden going, build an outside kitchen with wood oven, build a wild pool near the casita, make use of the outbuildings in some way, get a barn and area ready for the rescue chickens we want and a million more tasks :).

  • Hébergement


    You would have the casita which is around 25 metres from the main house where we live. The bathroom for the casita is private and in another block a few metres from the casita. We eat mainly vegetarian food but Chris does also eat meat sometimes, you'd be welcome to eat with us or cook for yourselves. We can discuss what you would prefer, we tend to just snack during the day and have a meal of some sort in the evening, it's all pretty laid back.

    We are situated down a pretty accessible track which takes about 5 minutes to drive to the nearest village, Cretas. In Cretas there are bars, a couple of small shops, a tabac etc. You could walk there in about 25 minutes but if you don't have your own vehicle we got backwards and forwards fairly often and can give you a lift. The nearest small town is Valderrobres which is about a 20 minute drive away and the larger town of Tortosa is around 45 minutes drive, as are the closest beaches. There are loads of beautiful villages to visit and stunning walks to go on, waterfalls, rivers etc. This area is often referred to as the Spanish Tuscany.
