    Update april 2024:

    looking for help over the next 2-3 months here in Asturias (north of Spain). Room and food for 4-5 hours help per day, 5 days a week.

    Would ideally like someone with experience using and maintaining strimmer / lawnmower as there’s a lot of land to clear, mostly brambles, weeds, gorse etc. A few small trees to fell. Also, some house maintenance - sanding and treating window frames etc.

    Ideally I’m looking for someone, or a couple who are fairly independent and don’t mind cooking for themselves, as I have a bit of an odd schedule and am not always around to be able to join volunteers.

    It’s a beautiful secluded spot in nature, great hikes from the house and lovely beach down the road (good surf!)


    Hi, my name is Paul. I moved to Asturias in February 2013.

    I'm set in roughly an acre of land on the side of a hill. The beach (playa de vega) is a nice stroll (35 mins) through forest and fields. The walk back from the beach is a gruelling slog that makes me swear after a couple of beers and a challenge either way. There are great walks to be had up from the house too. I, and the dogs are always happy to walk with you or show you some routes. The house is fairly isolated, about 8Km from the nearest town (Ribadesella) though there are buses (every two hours) close by. If you've never heard of Asturias, it's a beautiful, lush, green and mountainous coastline in the north of Spain.

    My long term aim is to become more self-sustainable have a lovely little retreat centre. I would love to be able to run some retreats this summer/autumn. In the meantime, there is lots of work to get the house ready. Until i'm ready for more people i have a small straw-bale cabin that i rent out in the summers (often used as accommodation for volunteers in the springtime).

    Next year I'd like to construct a grass-roofed yoga/meditation/what-you-like studio but for now I need to prepare a studio space in the house, which is started but needs more work.

    And me, I'm a corporate drop out. Twelve years in an office felt like a lifetime so now I'm starting anew. It's horrible and it's hard and its great and I love it. I haven't adjusted yet and am learning all the time. I'm open to all sorts and enjoy meeting people from varying backgrounds. Along with me, there are the two dogs, Peke and Osi, both of which are friendly with everyone.
