    2020 update: pref couple - pref building experience

    We are a semi-retired couple from Germany having lived and worked abroad we have settled in rural Galicia.

    Here we renovated and created a home, a holiday let, gardens, and a small nursery for flowering plants.
    We try to live as organic and sustainable as sensible and possible here in very rural Galicia. We grow some vegetables, have supporting solar power, our own wells, etc.

    Our latest project is creating a shop and a holiday home out of a ruin in our village.

    Work revolves around prepping the gardens for winter and renovation as well as ongoing maintenance.

    The area offers stunning nature but it is mainly for people who look for a tranquil & relaxed place.

    Although in the middle of the countryside we do have WiFi and other mod cons.

    A minimum stay of two weeks we found works best.

    Due to covid we may keep our distance in the first week and require wearing of masks

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    If you are slightly extrovert and speak some Spanish we have very welcoming neighbors and you can experience life in a small rural community.
    You will participate in the challenges to keep a flower garden during changing seasons and times. as well as growing plants for sale.
    The small "huerta" (veg garden) does need constant attention, as do the wines.
    You are welcome to help or prepare meals and pick up cooking tips.
    There is jam making, we make our own grape juice, making ketchup and generally preserves for the winter.
    The new renovation project of a semi ruin will provide ample distraction from gardening and we are happy to learn from you or pass on our experience and extensive knowledge of the renovation of old houses.

    There is also plenty of time to explore the stunning nature and we take you along to show even more "hidden" secrets.
    So be prepared to get your hands dirty but also enjoy life.

    Hébergement

    We offer a replica "Bauwagen" which is a small house on wheels. This has a comfortable, extendable (160 x 200) bed, table, chairs etc. Can be heated - electric & gas fire -, does have electricity and access to our WiFi net. Next to it are the old stables which contains the toilet and washbasin. The shower is solar heated beside the Bauwagen, but if it's too cool you can use ours or, if not rented, the one in the holiday house. There is easy access to the "alpendre" which contains a full outside kitchen. Needless to say that you can use our main kitchen as well.
    We happily share our warm evening meal with you. During the day we eat irregularly and are happy to share as well, but there are also provisions to make your own meals.

    Bread van comes round daily.

    The property is situated in the province of Lugo just across the rio Sil is Orense (province). The area is also known as Ribeira Sacra. We are near Sober at the end of a small village with about 20 permanent inhabitants, 40 cows, pigs and numerous cats and dogs. Being here it is easy to forget that we are actually in the 21st century.

    The next village with a pub and supermarkets is a 20 minutes walk away and it is another 10Km to the next town.

    We have 2 bicycles you are welcome to use.
    We live in the heart of the Ribeira Sacra, known for its vineyards, beautiful countryside with deep gorges, rugged mountains with untamed nature.
    Galicia also called “green Spain” and it is different. One has to experience it to know.

    July / August the local swimming pool is open.

    During summer we tend to go swimming in the nearby river, you are welcome to join.
