We are a Scottish-English couple with two children (ages 7 and 9). We have self built our house in the Sobrarbe region of Aragon- it is off-grid and was built with sustainable criteria.
We work as a practising architect, specializing in energy efficient, eco building, and an English teacher.
We manage a small vegetable garden, have some chickens and olive groves and produce our own firewood from the trees on our land for the winter.
We need two types of help: firstly, with running and maintaining the house and land. This means outdoor work such as gardening, or small scale construction work involving carpentry or building. We would only ask you to jobs like this if you have some experience and know how to use the relevant tools.
Secondly, we need domestic help in the house with tidying, cleaning, cooking and looking after the children. They go to the local school for most of the day, so it is only in the morning to get up and get ready to go to school, and in the evening that they are around.
Our house is outside a small village and about 15 minutes from the nearest town with shops, bars, library, etc... So its very rural and connected with nature. Despite that, we manage to have a good social life and there are always cultural and social events going on in our community, in the villages and towns in the area.
We speak English at home, but most of our friends are Spanish and we are all fluent in Spanish too.
