  • Description


    We are a family of 4. We decided to try and build a bit of the life we dreamt of and bought a piece of land with a little old house on top. We both traveled and spent time in other cultures so we want a bit of diversity back home. We are vegetarians and climbers so we have a healthy appreciation for nature and life in general.

    We strive as much as we can to integrate in a simple, natural way of life. You will see what living close to nature feels like and what are some issues you might encounter while leaving the comfort of the city behind. Next big project is digging for water.

    The mountain forests start right on our backdoor. Exploring nature and the effect globalisation had on a remote, small village for the last couple decades can be fun for some:)
