    Hi there! This is a communal project conscious living experience. We invite you to share with us - live, eat, play, help, learn and celebrate life!
    After some years travelling, we found a place, and we committed to create what we have been dreaming of during our trips: a tribe life, focus on sustainable co-living and aiming for thriving relationships between humans and with nature that holds us towards personal and collective growth and healing.

    The land is high up in the mountains surrounded by the beautiful scenery of the Sierra Nevada National Park in Lecrin Valley just between Granada and the coast. Our property is off grid and connected to a fresh water source for our water supply. There is nature all around us, with chances to explore, tracks to go for walks or riding bikes.

    We are a family of six adults and 3 kids. We are from Italy, UK, Sweden and Argentina. We share our home with a cuddly cat.

    We have some varied projects going on, some of them we tackle all year round, others are seasonal.
    We have a permanently expanding garden, where there are lots to do: compost piles, compost tea, planting, seedling, weeding, preparing new beds, watering, harvesting, cutting grass, general maintenance.
    There are some olives and almond trees that we harvest annually to produce our own oil.
    We also prune these trees, process and store the wood to feed the fire place during cold times.

    The house is quite big, so frequently it needs some cleaning and organisation and there is a swimming pool and a jacuzzi that need constant maintenance (mostly cleaning, filtering).

    We also always have some little (and not so little) building, restauration, fixing tasks that if you feel confident, you could take part in.
    We value motivated volunteers that collaborate with things they enjoy and appreciate to do.

    Normally, the hours of help needed is 5 per day, 5 days a week. Leaving 2 days per week to rest or do any trip around. These days may not be consecutive but depends on the type of tasks we are doing. We prefer our helpers to stay for at least 3 weeks.

    We enjoy our slow life up here in the mountains, being outdoors in the nature. We all have many ideas and projects that we want to fullfil and expand, we aim to live as sustainable as possible and are always aiming for self development, our community and our land.
    We love cooking especially with our amazing veggies straight from the garden. We are all vegetarian/vegan. We are happy about sharing with new people.

    If you resonate with this, contact us and we will be happy to welcome you home!

    Kultureller Austausch und Lernmöglichkeiten

    We are a family that like community life, have been volunteering a lot ourselves (even met each other volunteering in an intentional community in New Zealand) and will share as much as possible with our volunteers. Our place is a great spot to be in nature, in a quiet environment with fresh air and clean water coming straight from the mountains. There is an outdoor pool and a fire heated jacuzzi that is amazing to relax in on a starry night. For the adventurous there are a lot of walking tracks passing the house that lead straight out into the national park. Mountain biking is also a really popular activity in the area and we have two bikes that we are happy to lend out in case anyone is interested.

    Our house is about a 15 min drive up the mountain so it is about 1 hour walk into town and mainly for the people that like to be immersed in nature. We do however go often into town and sometimes to Granada so it is usually no problem to get out and see something different every once in a while. Orgiva, a hippie village, is about 1 hour drive from the house and is always worth a visit.
    Walking/hiking is also a great activity and you will have truly spectacular views just walking a hundred meters from the house.
    Once a week in the next village we organise "Martes de Pizzas" , a traditional neapolitan Pizza night with craft beers, in collaboration with a local association.
    You can also just spend your free time reading and chilling in the hammock by our pool.
