    Description

    Hi Everyone!

    My name is Maria, I am a Spanish/Swiss woman of 58 years old.

    I live in a beautiful masia (rural house) with 2,5 hectar land, 2 km outside of Valls in the Tarragona region.

    Currently I share the house with a Spanish couple good friends of mine, Andrés and Ana, he is bricklayer and she cook. We help each other in evrything we can. We have three dogs: Edu, Curro and Curva; and two turtles: Matilda and Godofredo.

    After living abroad for many years, working with Quality, I am returning home to make my dream true: live in my country house in a sustainable multicultural way and as self-sufficient as possible

    I am offering full accommodation in exchange of some help with the house renovation and landscape. There is a variety of tasks to do in order to renew my home in which I will need help:

    • Renovate the interiors of the house
    • Maintain the land
    • Build a vegetable garden
    • Build an animal enclosure

    I am looking for motivated people that would love to share different points of view. All ideas are welcome, experts, non-experts, people who are willing to learn and people who want to share knowledge and experience.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    After living abroad for many years, the time has come to carry out my dream.

    My intention is to integrate the workwayers in my family. We will share everything at home, activities, meals, etc.., It would be great to cook together, and share recipes, we eat meat and fish but I know many vegetarian recipes.

    You will experience living in a traditional masia located in the rural area of Tarragona.

    Our first language is Spanish, but you will be able to mix with local people who speak Catalan.
    I can speak fluently English, Swiss and German.

    My hobby is painting and you can also join me if you want.

    Aide

    I am open to new ideas! I need people eager to help me with the house renovation and landscape, particularly in the following tasks:

    • Maintain the land
    Cut the grass, prune some trees, chop firewood, remove the bramble, etc.

    • Renovate the interiors of the house
    Paint walls, doors and windows, level the floor, close off a doorway, build a new doorway, add a switch and a ceiling light in a room, treat wood against termites.
    Paint furniture, place shelves, cleaning, organize the garage, assemble, dissemble and arrange furniture.

    • Build a vegetable garden
    My aim is to be as self-sustainable as possible, by growing my own food using organic and bio intensive practices and by trading surplus with others.
    For this, it is needed to prepare the landscape, build a rainwater collector system, grow the seeds, tend to the vegetable plot, weed, water and harvest vegetables.

    • Build an animal enclosure
    I hope to rear poultry (hens, turkeys, goose) and rabbits in the future. Thus, it is needed to build an animal enclosure.

    • Build a wood-fired oven

    I am looking for motivated people that would love to share different points of view. All ideas are welcome, experts, non-experts, people who are willing to learn and people who want to share knowledge and experience.

  • Hébergement

    Hébergement

    There are two available big bedrooms upstairs: one bedroom with two single beds and one with a double size bed. I will provide you with all bedding and towels. We have two shared bathrooms, one in each floor.

    There are two kitchens: one inside the house and a garden kitchen. Each kitchen has its own fridge where you can keep any food you would like for your own, but I will provide meals during your stay.

    Also, there is a washing machine for laundry.

    As we are partly off grid, we need to be very mindful by using our water and gas resources. Besides that, the house is connected to mainstream power sources meaning that there is electricity and high speed internet access.

    My home is located 20 minutes walking distance from Valls, where you can find parks, cafes, bars, restaurants, grocery stores and small shops. There is also a bus station in town with service to Barcelona (~one hour) and Tarragona which is only 20 minutes by car.

    You can smoke outside without problem.

There are also many small towns and cities that you can visit during you stay. If interested, I can provide you with information about what to see and to do in the region, as well as help you to plan your stay according to your interests.
