We have a little paradise: a small river, 2 stone stages for performers outside,a hill with beautiful sunset sights, Nilo's rock castle, many wild birds flying around, about 60 olive trees and a little organic garden and medicinal plants.
AnaH is a yoga teacher,bach flower practiccioner, masaje terapist and a singer/dancer. So you can share your presence with her regular practice and meditations (normally I practice alone, but you can ask if you want to practice together or atend a class).
Josue is a photographer, master in making mojitos, rebuilder, an eco builder and a great cook. We have Nilo with 11 and Samu with almost 6. Soon we also will have Agata, the new baby girl.

We are working hard building a small room with recycled tires, it`s almost finished. We need to restaure ancient walls, filling them in with litle stones and a mix of cement with sand and earth.For the moment we need to shop some wood and pick olives and herbs,etc,etc,etc....help with the house..
There is plenty of space to put a tent, for the moment, near the river creek.
We adore music, photography, and art in general.
Before the baby we made our own bread, soya/grain milk, jams, cakes and pies, nut butters, home made detergents,etc.Not now... we don't use drugs (nor abuse alcohol) and we give preference to vegetarians or people whom at least know the ingredients in a vegetarian cuisine. We have a limit staying time for helpers, which is between 1 week and 10 days.
AnaH can invite you for yoga/dance clases or workshops, but if you whish a massaje, bach flower or any other private therapy, it is not for free.
We expect people to work about 5 hours/day, rest on sundays, which depends on the staying time. The rest of the day free for you to walk or bike, or join us in our social rural life. But we expect you to go alone where you want to visit.
About the farm, in the first days we show you the place and where the tools are and what are the priorities, so we can organize the work and free time (we asume we are dealing with responsible and healthy people..). But every day is different here, so we need some flexibility too.
About the meals, we share the cooking and then you can eat on your own on the dining room below our house (if you open the door you can see a beautifull site seeing or else it will be too dark), and we will eat with the children upstairs, because we usually have different timings due to our parentohood.
At dinner time, we have soup and bread with different style of creams or we eat what was left from lunch .
Each one washes their own dishes and we make turns in who cooks and who makes dish washing, so the work can be fun. ;) if you don't have experience dish washing, we use one side with clean water (left) and one side with hot water and detergent (right). First go the cups, then the bowls, after the plates , then the cutlery. Finnaly the pans,etc. If it still has some grease IT MEANS IT NEEDS ANOTHER GO ;-)
We have a macrobiotic and mediterranean diet, which means we are flexible with all sorts of diets, but we use very reduced amounts of animal protein and eat flowers, wild herbs, sea weeds and seeds on a regular basis. If you wish to try any of these recipes we do, please let us know before, so we can organise a special day in the kitchen for teaching everything you want to know. Definetely not at meal time cooking, because it would be too stressfull. If you have some questions, you can ask them on the coffee break.
Please come prepared with enough clothing/warm sleeping bag for the night.
There is a big swimming pool nearby on the Portuguese border.There are lots of places to go for a ride, like the vultures hills, a 10 min. away from our house, or small villages to visit or the dolmen sites. We can lend our bikes and sometimes we can go together, if posible. We have many neo rural friends around, with horses, animals, fantastic sightseeing places, cool places to come for a drink, so it is also an opportunity to visit other peoples farms and know the life style we have here. We love it !
Many helpers after some days will share their personal lives and thoughts with us, as we share our day to day life and our philosophy of living, but after some days we found a common patern on some personal questions we are being asked by helpers which make us feel like in the Big Brother show...please respect our intimacy and cultural & family heritage, healing the earth also includes healing family structures and that takes a lot of time...
We have tourism office leaflets from the towns around us to visit, both in Spain and Portugal and until now people just loved our cooking !
