I live in the south of spain in an small ecovillage in a real beautiful natural spot. My name is Andrea , i'm 45 years and since this year i´m living on my own,cause my daughter moved to granada. In this village we are about 100 people. We are not a 100%comunity. Everybody has his/her own space/place, but we do have a comun organization in some things. No road is coming up here, so we bring up the hill building materials and heavy shoping with the donkey.

A nice room with a single bed.(my daughters room)
(My house is small, so there is not really privacy-you hear everything)
I have also a place with a doble bed,but this has less privacy cause it dont has a door. My bath room is with gas heating. The toilet is outside.Drinking water we have to pick up in the well. We eat together if you like. Somedays maybe im out so you have to cook on your own.I dont eat meat, sometimes i eat fish, but i dont mind if you eat it.
There are two buses a day to sevilla wich ia a really beatiful town. And theres a lot of nice small villages around. Also a lot of paths to go for a walk. In aracena is an famous cave called la gruta de las maravillas, you can see. The aerea is famous for the black pigs and the jamon. We are 100 km from huelva and there are really nice beaches. Portugal border is about 50 km from here. There always some concerts going on, many musicians around, also many alternative terapys....always depends the moment you show up ,the things you can meet. The clima is quite mild,but in winter it can also rain a lot.
