    Hi! Hola! We are Greg and Daisy!

    We moved to Spain three years ago, and now live in a beautiful village in the Picos de Europa national park, with our two year old son and various animals.

    We travelled round the world together in 2012, and agreed that the Picos is the most beautiful place we'd been to! We love the outdoors, and here there is hiking, mountain biking and climbing, as well as being close enough to the coast that you can do some incredible surfing!

    We have numerous projects going on, the main one being the renovation of our property. Greg quit his desk job and is experienced as a carpenter and builder, so can share his knowledge with others, as well as always being keen to learn! We will be using solar power on our property and hope to make it as sustainable as possible. Anyone wanting experience in building, or to share their knowledge will be very welcome! We are also looking for help with gardening, getting our huerto (vegetable garden) ready for 2022!

    A typical day usually starts at about 9, helping Greg with some building for about 5 hours. Then we have some lunch and the afternoon is your to explore the mountains!

    We enjoy cooking and love learning new recipes, so any love of cooking will be very welcome!

    We speak intermediate Spanish, and speak both Spanish and English at home. We're always keen to explore this beautiful area, which is famous for local produce (orujo, wine, honey, cheeses) and outdoor adventures. As well as the building project, we also want to start bee keeping, improve our Spanish cooking and learn local traditions.

    If you would like to spend time in a truly beautiful area, learning new customs and experiencing a different way of life, please get in touch!

    We live in a small beautiful village, which is only 3 km from Potes, the main town in the Picos where you'll find a great selection of restaurants, bars and outdoor activities. If you have your own transport, great! Otherwise we can lend you a bike to explore the area. There are also regular buses to Santander, which stop off on the coast.
    We're still exploring this incredible area so always looking for excuses to try new things!
