  • Description


    Hello, we are Joan (33), Clara (31), Atai (5) and Indiana (3). We live in a beautiful place surrounded by nature and forest. Nearby is the river with some incredible pools to cool off in summer. We have a permaculture and organic farming project. The main crop of the farm are olive and almond trees. At the same time, we make a subsistence garden for the volunteers and the family. We are still beginners in the garden.

    One of the pillars of our family is the home education of our children. We do homeschooling and we believe that the visit of volunteers from other countries can be a very enriching experience.

    Our diet is vegetarian without dairy and we generally do not drink alcohol. The volunteers' accommodation is a mud and straw minihouse, with its own kitchen and bathroom. The bathroom is a dry toilet. At the moment, we do not have hot water or a fridge in the volunteers' house, but we are working on it.

    The atmosphere in our family is fun and welcoming. We hope to meet someone who wants to live the country life in a natural and beautiful environment. And who knows, maybe a great friendship will emerge.

    See you soon!


    Hola, somos Joan (30), Clara (28), Atai (5) y Indiana (3). Vivimos en un sitio precioso rodeado de naturaleza y bosque. Muy cerca esta el rio con unas pozas increibles para refrescarse en verano. Tenemos un proyecto de permacultura y agricultura ecologica. El cultivo principal de la finca son olivos y almendros. Paralelamente hacemos un huerto de subsistencia para los voluntarios y la familia. Todavia somos principiantes en la huerta.

    Uno de los pilares de nuestra familia es la educacion en casa de nuestros hijos. Hacemos homeschooling y creemos que la visita de voluntarios de otros paises puede ser una experiencia muy enriquecedora.

    Palabra Clave: PAPADOPOULOS. Introduce esta palabra en tu mensaje de presentación así sabremos que has leído el texto. Gracias.

    Nuestra alimentación es vegetariana sin lácteos y generalmente no tomamos alcohol. El alojamiento de los voluntarios es una mini casita de barro y paja, con su cocina y baño independiente. El baño es un wc seco. De momento, no tenemos agua caliente ni nevera en la casa de los voluntarios, pero, estamos trabajando en ello.

    El ambiente en nuestra familia es divertido y acogedor. Esperamos conocer a alguien que quiera vivir la vida en el campo en un entorno natural y hermoso. Y quien sabe, tal vez surja una gran amistad.

    Nos vemos pronto!
