My adorable little dog Coco and I have last year uprooted to the Costa Daurada in Catalonia to create an environment where people can come to relax, recharge and forget about their stressful life. We since adopted more pets, 2 puppies Luna and Rocky, Galipette (Kitten), Felicia (cat) and 6 chickens. Our delightful home is located in picturesque countryside nestled between the sea and mountains in the middle of an olive grove. The house is mainly made of wood which is very rare in this neighbourhood, we are self sufficient and use solar panels and water cisternas which i will be happy to show you how it all works. The surrounding area is absolutely stunning and has just so much to offer you. This year we invite our guests to share our attractive one-bedroom house and to enjoy a whole host of outdoor pursuits including mountain walking, kayaking, cycling and many beaches to choose from.
I am seeking volunteers between 7th and 12th November to help with collection of the olives. You would be required to work five days (This include 1/2 day off), on the 6th day we will go to the press and watch how the oil is made.
Working days chores:
- picking olives using nets and mini rakes
- pruning trees
- visiting the olive press
- watching how olive oil is made
In return for comfortable accommodation, delicious food and 1 liter of oil.
Food: Please let me know in advance if you are vegetarian or have particular dietary requirements and I will do my utmost to accommodate. I adore cooking, but if you share this passion and relish an opportunity to practise your culinary skills then I am completely open to sampling your best signature dishes.
Accommodation is in a shared bedroom (2 persons), pillow and duvet and you also have full use of the shared toilets, hot showers and kitchen. (couples welcome)
Wifi is available but limited.
Coco, Luna, Rocky, Galipette, Felicia and I very much look forward to welcoming you into our home soon.
