LIVING OPPORTUNITY near Pyrenees, Spain. I've spent the last 12 years restoring a ruin and establishing a garden with the help of volunteers in a once abandoned, off grid hamlet in Huesca province, Aragon. I 'm going to be spending more time in the UK from now on but its a great place and it would be a pity if it weren't to be used. There's a self contained flat (small but nice) and you'd have the run of the garden if you wanted. Electricity is solar and water is from rainwater collection so that's all free (a car is kind of essential though). I wouldn't ask for rent but would expect basic upkeep needs to be met and a minimum commitment of three months. Contact me at evelyn.augusta@gmail.com and I can send photos, talk through skype/ whatsup.
