  • Description

    Description

    We are a French-Dutch couple (60 and 56 years old) with 5 children of whome the youngest, Edith, 16 years old still lives with us. We have a horse, goats, cats and dogs.
    We bought our little farm where we live 9 years ago after having lived in the village nearby for 4 years.
    The farm was a hectare of completely overgrown olive-and fruit trees with some ruines on it. The first few years we spent building/restauring the house (François is an eco-builder) and we are now more focused on the land of the finca. Our water comes from a nearby well and we run on solar energy.
    We have been happily homeschooling together with our children since 8 years now.

    Spanish, French, Dutch and English are the languages we are used to speak at home.

    In autumn we will start cleaning of a waterway, that has been completely overgrown.
    Also a lot of painting needs to be done in and round the house. There is field-, garden-, and housework to do too.
    And anybody who knows about (analogue) fotography or natural horsemanship is also welcome.

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    We are happy to share meals with you. We can offer you a two-persons guest-room with its own toilet and shower, or a caravan with front-tent where you can be more independent, but sharing our dry toilet and shower. There is place for a camper-van to park on the finca, but not too big, since the track is narrow in some places.
    We are situated about 3 km from the nearest village in the natural-park of Sierra de Aracena, in a beautiful nature of rolling hills covered with cork-,chestnut-, and olive-trees at about 700 m altitude.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Living in the natural park, is an experience on itself. The local people are enchanting.
    We, as a family, are happy and used to share our life with new people.
    The area has got a number of small white villages, lively, beautiful and all are worth visiting. The park is a paradise for horse-riding, mountain-biking and walking. There are daily buses to Seville (2 hours). We are a working people, but like enjoying a good meal and a nice conversation on our grapevine-covered terrace.
