  • Description


    feel the magic sensation of a very old and wild land in the middle of an area called "ribeira sacra".
    in a familiar and artistic life, in the old house of the count (500 years old and 600 square meter house).
    we are now 6 persons living in this house all the year, but old and new friends are always coming. because this is a big, quiet house, with lots of space for personal projects.
    we are also quiet people and nature lovers, travellers, artists and musicians.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    our guest could live different experiences in nature, ecology, agriculture, natural health, self-sufficiency, quality of life, construction, and artistic processes and projects.
    We try to live in a self-sufficient way and we have experience in country life and natural health. we cultivate our food and also prepare natural cosmetic and health products.
    we are shortly to finish the repair of the house.
    we also want to carry out own audiovisual artistic projects.
    our guest can help us and learn from all, also language exchange.
    we like to learn every day and bit by bit we want to give more life to this huge house turning it into a coliving and art space, in a naturefriendly way of course.
