  • Description

    Description

    We are a family of 4 consisting of 2 young children (Ralph 6 & Pippa 5).
    We moved to Spain to live off grid within peace & tranquility of the Spanish mountains. We collect water from mountain spring & also have a well, we have no electricity just power from the sun.
    We have almond, olive & carab trees. We want to add more fruit trees to our land as we would eventually like to become totally self sufficient.
    I have done a small veg patch this year.
    We have a outside shower that we use all year round but if the weather isn't good then we do occasionally have to strip wash but that comes with this lifestyle and we don't mind doing this.
    We are un-schooling our children.
    We can collect or meet people at the airport/train station/bus station, in the town or arrange a spot to meet or collect you.
    We are a fun loving, adventurous family & also enjoy trying new things.
    We enjoy meeting new people & sharing ideas. Never too much work ; )
    Smaller stays are for us as we also enjoy to travel & explore new countries & places.
