  • Description


    Hi, greetings from Franz and Margret. We live on a Campo in Inland Alicante Spain. Living with us are our 3 dogs (two are big), 1 cat and chickens. On the Campo we only have solar energy and water from a well, but that does not mean that we are "out of this world". We live close to Salinas where you can find all the amenities. We've chosen to leave our Country (Germany) behind, to start over fresh and live a life worth living.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You will be able to improve your language skills, since in this area there are hardly any foreign tourists and Spanish is the language spoken. In the Sierra de Salinas you will find nature trails and the Alicante beaches are only a 30 min drive away.

  • Help


    We have started on building a house, lots of Landscape gardening (including collecting stones) and general bits and bobs in and around the land and stables.

  • Accommodation


    We offer the use of a caravan. There is an extra outside bathroom with shower and right now we are in the process of building a pool, which should be ready for the warmer season. WiFi is for you to use. (Edit: the pool is ready to use :D )
    It is helpful if you have a driving license, because we are " in the middle of nowhere" but that is not essential.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Our lifestyle is very basic, as dictated by solar power. You won't find a hairdryer or a dishwasher, but we have Internet and TV. You will be living with us like a family member, joining in our activities if you wish. Our animals are well cared for, but we also eat them (not those that live in the house :D ) .
    We will try our best to make your stay a good one, but you will also be expected to fulfill your part of the exchange. Most of the work we have is physical and involves getting your hands dirty. If this is not for you, DON'T APPLY!
