  • Description


    We are a family of five, who live in Jaen. I live in the house on my own and the rest of the family lives next door (my mom, father, sister and brother). We love nature and the quiet life , we have a project to cultivate a farm of 2 ha of stevia this will be the 1st year , never before we have devoted to agriculture, but now I think we can fulfill our dream. We now live in a spectacular place without noise and with a lot of nature , where you can spot all kinds of wildlife. The area where we live is mountainous with abundant water and the landscapes of the southern highlands of Jaén. It can be found countless Neolithic rock art as dolmens and period paintings , you can also practice all kinds of mountain sports such as climbing, hiking etc. It is a little-known area of Andalusia but very charming.

    somos una familia que vivimos en Jaén Andalucía, la familia consta de 5 miembros, amamos la naturaleza y la vida tranquila, tenemos un proyecto de cultivar una finca de 2 ha de stevia este seria el 1º año, nunca antes nos hemos dedicado a la agricultura pero ahora creo que podemos cumplir nuestro sueño, ahora vivimos en un sitio espectacular sin ruidos y con mucha naturaleza, donde se pueden avistar todo tipo de animales silvestres, la zona donde residimos es de montaña donde abunda el agua y los paisajes de la sierra sur de jaén, en ella se pueden encontrar infinidad de arte rupestre del periodo neolítico como dolmenes y pinturas , también se puede practicar todo tipo de deportes de montaña como escalada, senderismo etc, es una zona poco conocida de Andalucía pero con mucho encanto.
