  • Descrição


    We are a British family living in the lovely green north of Spain in Asturias. We have 9 rescued cats and 3 rescued dogs and 2 foster dogs. We are looking for somebody to help care for our pets and to help us with work around the house and garden.

    We are Michael, Penelope and our son Bentley who is 13.

    Our house is walking distance to Villaviciosa (600m) and 9km from a lovely beach called Rodiles. There are good bus links from Villaviciosa to Ribadesella, Llanes, Gijon and Oviedo among others. Asturias is known for mountain trails and surfing. It really is a paradise here.

    The people who have enjoyed being here in the past are people who adore animals, they love being surrounded by cats and dogs and receiving all the love and affection that they like to give people. Our house is in the process of being done up so it's a little scruffy and with all of our animals it's hard for there not be some mud and pet hairs in the house so that needs not to be a problem for you.

    Asturias is green and in places the mountains are only 15km from the beach, it's pretty stunning. We love meeting new people and have had lots of fun with Workawayers in the past. We home educate our son which former visitors have been interested to find out more about. People have also been interested in the way we live - we try to eat healthily, feed our pets healthily. We always have lots of philosophical discussions with visitors if they're up for that!
