We live in a 20 Ha farm situated in a beautiful, mountainous valley along the Revardit river.
The farm is 4.3km away from the main road, 8Km. from the nearest town (Banyoles), 30 Km. from Girona and 130km from Barcelona, in Catalonia.
Our mothertongue is Catalan. We speak Castillan as well. Good English, French and Portuguese and a little bit of German and Italian.
Long ago (60 years) the valley was full of farms with people making their living selling wood and charcoal. They had to leave to the cities when gas and electricity took the place of wood and coal in the factories. Most of the wonderful houses fell down.
Nowadays only three families live on the valley.
We live with two horses, 7 goats, 6 sheep, dogs, cats, chickens ad geese.
Most of the time we work cleaning the forest (taking out vaines, bad bushes, rotten trees...), taking care of the animals, making our vegetable garden, repairing fences and dry walls...
We need people that can shepherd our flock of sheep and goats. We can teach you Catalan or Spanish if you look after our flock for more than a month.
We would love to build a couple of wood little houses.
We try to live in harmony with the nature that surrounds us.
