    Description

    We just bought a rustic traditional farmhouse in Galicia, Spain. It is a time capsule. It needs to be reactivated. Energy needs to flow back in, to make it spring back to live. Combine the time tested, with modern (eco) insights. We are smack in the middle of vibrant nature that provides for awe inspiring walks. Located 30min from one of the most famous surf beaches in Europe: Pantin.

    A place on earth where you feel that the rain washes your worries away. 15minutes later it smiles on you with endless rainbows followed by a basking sun. Patiently it keeps on repeating this until you finally take notice ...and opens a new door in your heart.

    About us: We strive to inspire each other each day with love, kindness and enjoying life. Taking in all impression and thinking outside the box defines who we are. Beyond all gender roles. Gender fluid and clothing optional. Come celebrate life with us. Surprise each other with the smallest gestures to the point that you are happy that you make the trip to Earth.

    So here we are maximizing life and breathing love, life and energy into our environment . Come join us. We are looking for people who want to try it, crave for it or want it no other way.

    North of Santiago de Compostella, nature in Galicia Coruña is breathtaking (see www. turismo.gal or googlemaps), local ppl are really nice. It is all spacious and laid back. Beaches are jaw dropping to the point that you go: "Hey, Ultimate Creator, now you are really a show-off!!!"

    Weather in Galicia can be compared to this wonderful phrase I heard about the weather in Ireland . "What, dont like the weather? Just wait 15minutes! (It cycles through rain, heat, sun, hail,etc all in 1 hour)". Truth is: rain has something divine here.

    *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️ Architectural plans: Create mood boards, draw plans to enhance this place of well being
    *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️ (Architectural) decoration: Create mood boards, source suppliers
    *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️ Eco technology: Research technology that enhances ecological living. Eg. Greywater system, biomass heaters, heat pump boilers, solar systems, etc
    *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️ Hands-on handy person (wood/stone/metal): Turner of dreams into reality ...like a... an eco hot tub??
    *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️ Photographer - help set up time laps positions & capture surrounding nature
    *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️ Plant/Land/House 'whisperer': Feel the energy around, help open beautiful energy and convert stagnant spots. You can make it as hard as you want. With Tai Chi, Yoga, garden scissors, clearing rubble, honour the spot with a (mini) party, etc, etc.

    Independently of your skill you definitely want to participate in uncovering overgrown royal caminos (country lanes) around the grounds! It is so much fun!

    Add to your chosen skill some general house hold work. Preparing the evening meal together and taking the time to enjoy it.

    Depending on the weather the options increase. From (bad weather) shared indoor space to (good weather) outdoor barn, tent, hammock, starry-starry-night-sky. A still open project is a tiny, tiny, micro (re)movable) house or a mini movable garden house or cosy shelter.

    Still outdoor plumbing (bathroom). Believe it or not, that was the norm here until the '80!! Hot tub(still open project). Shared vegetarian meals. chill-out-evenings, unlimited espressos (those last ones before you switch to tea). We will also make sure you have some of your preferred comfort food at hand!

    A train station is located 400m from our farmhouse. It is one of those trains that stops at every station and cuts straight through the local nature giving you a front row seat to amazing views.
