  • Description


    Hi! My name is Amanda, and I recently move to the countryside. My project is a little one, consisting on the recovery of an abandoned place and and the little village where I live. Briefly I need some help to cleani it up and to deal with the exuberance of nature. My main objective is to bring beauty to the place, so lot os ideas will be welcome: the place was abandoned for years and there is a lot to do :D!

    What I offer: accommodation and meals in exchange for 5h a day of help (and 5days of help per week)

    (Spanish/ English below) Hola, me llamo Amanda y me mudé hace poco a una casita que llevaba años abandonada. Estoy en un pueblín de Asturias (muy chiquitín: somos 3 casas) que está en un antiguo valle minero rodeado de castaños y de sendas para caminar bajo el canto de los pajarines. Necesito ayuda para luchar contra las zarzas y demás malezas, hacer arreglillos por aquí y por allá. También me encantaría tener una huerta, y hacer unos caminos de madera o de piedra... Vamos, que muchos tipos de ayuda son bienvenidas, ojalá se quieran animar:)

    De momento ofrezco alojamiento y comidas a cambio de trabajo 5h al dia (si se quedan una semana serían 5 días de trabajo y dos días libres)

    The travelers can enjoy the rural environment, the nature, or just the opportunity to live isolated from the world for a while. (Also they could benefit from all the pleasure of making a place nicer;)

    Right now what I need most is help to clear the land of weeds. Perhaps also to cut firewood.

    At this point the main tasks are fighting the nettles, the brambles and other weedy friends, saving the apple trees from the brambles, looking for wood, chopping woods... there is plenty of work:)

    En este momento lo que más me urge es ayuda para desbrozar y despejar el terreno de malezas. Quizás también para cortar leña.

    Cet hôte propose un échange linguistique
    I can speak Spanish, fluently English, and years ago French. Also I understand quite a lot of Portuguese -although I might not be able to speak it. I am interested in learning other languages as well as to know about other cultures. For me it will be a pleasure to have some cultural exchage:)

  • Hébergement


    (Spanish/ English below) Ofrezco alojamiento en mi casa, en una habitación de unos 10 m2 que tiene una cama de 1,35m. El resto de la casa (salón, baño, cocina, terracina y terrenín) serían para compartir.

    As an accommodation, I can offer one room in my house (for one person or two in case they want to share the room). In the room there is a 1,35m bed, a drawer and a window towards the South.

    It is a humble place. I live in a rural area, but a quite big urban area can be found at just 10 km away (Mieres). My house is in a little village (3 houses) at the Turon valley (a place that used to be a mining valley). Although it sometimes feels like it, the village is not isolated (there are others villages around that can be visited just by walking). The surroundings are green and quiet. There is place enough to park a van or two cars. The birds sing and everything is green. The plan is to be house-mates for a while, so you are welcome to chill around, to cook, to feel home in general.

    The house counts with books, instruments, pencil colors and space. And t you can easily find other humans in a15 min walk from the place.

    The valley is full of little farms, small villages and walking routes in the nature. For longer plans, there are several cherished natural destinations of interest quite close, for example, the Cantabrian Coast at a 40-60 minutes car drive, or the Natural Park of Somiedo, the Natural Park of Redes and the National Park of Picos de Europa at one hour drive aprox.

    For a more urban style sejour there are routes towards civilization too: Mieres (15 min away) and the cities Oviedo and Gijón, which are at a 40-60 min drive.
