  • Descrição

    Descrição

    We are a catalane family who lives in the beautiful area of “The Pre-Pyrenees”, province of Lleida. We live in a quiet region surrounded by mountains. We live with our daughter and our two dogs. The granny lives in the first floor of the same house.

    We are in the centre of Camarasa, and just 1 hour and half drive from Barcelona, Tarragona and the Pyrenees (the beautiful area of the high mountains).

    We like simple, quiet life in countryside, in a tourist area. We have a house and an olive trees grove. We have 2 dogs and 1 cat.

    We work as tutors but only in the afternoons and evenings. Pau is an amateur musician so he can share traditional catalane music. Rosa makes a lot of traditional catalane and Mediterranean recipes. She loves cooking with whole ingredients and in a Mediterranean way and now in a traditional way from many countries. She makes several types of traditional Spanish foods, and right now she can cook many recipes from over the world; many thanks to the friends of workaway for sharing your culture! ;-).
    Rosa daughter loves writting, nature, exercise and chess.

    We speak fluently Catalan and Spanish, English and a little French. We love chatting in front of a glass of wine or a cup of tea, or coffee!

    If you like to play music, we play catalane instruments as “tarota” but also double bass, racorder, guitar... (Pau is the teacher and the rest of us students, but we like to play together).

    Rosa teaches English so you will be asked for accompaning her in her English speaking classes over all. You no are required to know English grammar. Only English spoken skills. In summer, mid June, July and August there are NOT ENGLISH classes.
    We would ocasionally need some help about painting and renovating the house.

    If you ask for, we are able to help you with Spanish. Many volunteers have improved their Spanish with us :)


    We hope meet you soon. Have a nice week!

    - Please, if you are 20 years old or yourger try to find another host.

    - The couple, Pau and Rosa are in their fifties both. We live in a little town of 500 inhabitants. Our house has 4 floors where our grandmother lives in the 1st floor by their own and we live in the 3rd with our young daughter in her twenties. We have two dogs. Your room is in the 2nd floor. You have a bathroom next to it.

    - The area is full of wild life and there are many beautiful walks and nature. We love nature and we use to show Biology, Archaeology and History and Geology of Pre-Pyrenees and Pyrenees to friends and tourists.

    - Our town is near Barcelona too (1 hour and half). It is very easy to get here from Barcelona and we help you to find the proper transport.

    - All of our food is made at home in the Mediterranean way, because Rosa, the mother, loves cooking and recuperating old Mediterranean recipes. Many times the food is also with ingredients organically produced.

    - We need help all the seasons and we don’t mind how much time you want to stay with us, neither long nor short. But in Summer, we limit the stay to 30 days maximum.

    - With our family, you can come by yourself, live independent, but it doesn't mean being alone, only when you want, because we love chatting and having good discussions.

    - If you're used to play any instrument, we love to play together and share music. You can bring it or you can use some of ours.

    - We are really serious about Covid. We will inform you of our rules to this purpose when you contact us. Right now we mainly ask for being vaccinated and wearing a mask when you are with our students.
    - We prefer mainly to host people who are not vegan or vegetarian.
