  • Description

    Description

    Our project was established on February of 2016 as a CO-HOUSING project built with a low budget concept and co-working.

    We are university fellows involved on environmental sustainability, music, sports and arts who aim to build a concept of lifestyle by technology, extreme sports, spirituality and good vibration. We are engaged on several projects.

    From rainwater harvesting to urban gardening. From Arduino technology to surf/kite/SUPcamp activities.

    You'll find a music room combined with an indoor swimming pool that links to a chill out lounge at just 5 minutes walking distance from the Campeche beach, a kite/surfer’s paradise.

    Help

    We run a guest house / Hostel in the property and we need volunteers to help us in the daily activities such as cleaning, general maintenance and gardening. Moreover, we organize workshops and activities that need support in organization and video making and editing.

    This is a beautiful place where we apply, as much as possible, sharing economy concepts and it's being a great prototyping experiment so far :)

    We rely on the responsibility and commitment of any single human being experiencing all of it with us, so if you think we shouldn't expect much from your help because you will be here just for a few days please do not apply.

    Let's all of us do our best in every single action and create a better world for all, which includes oneself.

    What else ...

    We are at Rio Tavares, the home of professional musicians, surfers and skateboarders located at 20-30 minutes away by bus form the central bus station and airport.

    Traveling to and from our place to all the must see sights is a piece of cake. There are plenty of beautiful beaches to enjoy and plenty of things to do! Surf and Kitesurf is just around the corner.

    There is an amazing Island close to our place where you can paddle and explore. The Lagoa da Conceição, home to Floripa´s bars, restaurants and night clubs, is just a 15 min. bus journey away.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    This is a lively place created to connect people and ideas. A part from the guests, there are about 8 people living there from different backgrounds. It is a mix between Brazilians and non-Brazilians ("foreigner" is maybe too rude! ;) ).

    We often realize social technology workshops, gastronomic events and music sessions. It is the perfect place for those looking to combine language pratctice with outdoor sports (surf, kite, skate, slackline, hiking, bike), music, technology and style in a great atmosphere.
