  • Description


    This is a family project that started five years ago. We first made our house, then our neighbour's salon and last we built our cabin where tourists and volunteers stay. Then started with the organic garden and planted lots of native and frutal trees. We now have everything working and we have to maintain it. We love where we live and enjoy the lifestyle we have. Our place is 400 meters from the sea and we are surrounded of nature. Native flora and fauna is protected and nature sets the pace of the days. We are usually building something, always with bioconstruction techniques and working in the garden. We also love music and Tiana plays lots of instruments. Yoga practices are given in the salon twice a week.

  • Accommodation


    We have a cabin where tourists stay mostly in summer and the rest of the year volunteers can use it. If it's occupied we can try using our neighbour's house (using some days helping in theirs house) or we can put a tent. All meals are included. Sometimes we share them and if not all the ingredients are given.

    What else ...

    One of the greatest aspects of our place, is that even though it is surronded by nature (beach at 400mt, lake at 2km, native woods, and farm) there are plenty of touristic spots nearby. If volunteers wish to visit some of them we can take them by car to the bus stop 5km away.
