  • Description

    Description

    We are Alejo and Angie, a couple of dreamers who decided to give their life a different direction. So after living in the rhythm of a big city like Bogotá, we decided to live in a space that gave us tranquility and allowed us to learn and share.

    We dream of a place where we consciously enjoy and connect with each of the elements present. A meeting space to meet, learn and share with people who love life and nature; sustainable, that allows us to live from it without exploitation and giving back what it gives us with love.

    Somos Alejo y Angie, un par de soñadores que decidieron darle a su vida un rumbo diferente. Así que luego de vivir en el ritmo de una gran ciudad como Bogotá, decidimos vivir en un espacio que nos brindara tranquilidad y nos permitiera aprender y compartir.

    Soñamos un lugar en el que de manera consciente disfrutemos y nos conectemos con cada uno de los elementos presentes. Un espacio de reunión para conocer, aprender y compartir con personas que amen la vida y la naturaleza; sostenible, que nos permita vivir de él sin explotación y devolviendo lo que nos da con amor.
