We are a semi retired couple from Germany having lived and worked abroad (UK 15+ years) we now have settled in rural Galicia.

Here we renovated and created a home, two holiday lets, gardens and a small nursery for flowering plants.
We try to live as organic and sustainable as sensible and possible here in very rural Galicia.. We grow some vegetables, have supporting solar power, our own wells, etc.

The property is situated at the end of a small village with about 20 permanent inhabitants, 40 cows, pigs and numerous cats and dogs. Being here it is easy to forget that we are actually in the 21st century.
The next village with a pub and supermarkets is 30 minutes walk away and it is 10Km to the next town.

We visit both regularly and you are welcome to come along, also there is one daily bus.

We are looking for help in the garden and polytunnels (digging, weeding, potting, water management), maintaining and improving the buildings (tiling, painting, spring cleaning, etc.)
We also have two holiday homes and help with changeovers may be required.

Ideally, we are looking for a couple who are prepared to work 5 days 6 hours daily. According to the needs, hours and days are flexible.

We offer a "Bauwagen" to sleep in, there is an outside shower (or in cold weather, you can use the rental or our shower) a toilet and basin are in the stables and you are welcome to use the outside kitchen. We happily share our warm evening meal with you. During the day we eat irregularly and are happy to share as well, but there are provisions to make your own meals.

We live in the heart of the Ribeira Sacra, known for its wine yards, beautiful countryside with deep gorges, rugged mountains with untamed nature.
Galicia also called “green Spain” and it is different. One has to experience it to know.

Presently looking for help as of April 2019
