  • Description


    I'm Aitox 33 year old Spanish. I love climbing, yoga, meet friends around, share everything and help everybody I can.
    I'm building a self-efficient house in a small land with orange, lemon, pomegranade trees,figs, almonds and plums, is a 2 bedrooms wood house that kitchen must to be build outside, I have a compost toilet,
    I got water source and a water tank next to the house. Shower is being build.
    Some days we do some job in the community garden where I'm tiding up my new garden.
    The land is placed 5 min walking from the village or it can be accessed by car aswell.
    As you can see the place still not finished but is so peacefull place and inside is dry and warm.
    The location is in Valle del Genal in a small white town surrounded of amazing mountains.

    Not many public transport around here, but you should be able to arrive to the village by yourself. I like people with community spirit and grown up enough to understand by themselves what jobs need to be share around the house (cooking, washing up, tidying up shared space, etc) add an I agree on the beginning of the text as you understand the basic shared task. I really want to keep this place as a rule free, no timetables and full of respect and love.

    Actually I got just two extra beds but a tent can be placed around. Sometimes we do a kitty for the very basics in the house.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I love to exchange anything from different culture. I thing this place is magical, still wild and is plenty of interesting people with amazing way of living, loving the nature and respecting each other. Summer is plenty of life but winter is a bit hard like everywhere.
    The food in the village is really nice and cheap.
