  • Description


    We are an open community in the mountains(Serra Calderona). We work rebuilding an ancient arab village(alquería), for preserving the clever and sustainable culture of living in harmony with the nature.
    The settlement it`s from the XI century, located in a lost valley between mountains, with a high environmental value.
    It gives us the life a clear water river that flows between red stones(rodeno) and a dense mediterranean forest.
    The village it`s composed by around 20 houses ruins, a defensive tower and 3 buildings that we are actually rebuilding, and where we already have a communitary dinning room and kitchen, as well as a workshop, a warehouse, library, goat yards, a hen house and sleeping places.
    Olla village has also a big terraced farming surface, where predominate the centenary olive trees, the almond and cherry trees and the orchard terraces, all of them worked up under the permaculture principles.
    The village has communitary shower installations, dry wc, swimming pool, green cleaning filters, photovoltaic electrical installation and a solar heat.
