    Description

    Hi! we are from Zazpe, a town under reconstruction in Navarra. This town was abandoned 80 years ago and we have been rehabilitating it for 11 years. We used the stone that was in the ruins, with lime, wood and thermoclay. We build houses, using materials that are here. We are a group of 7 adults and 3 pekes. We have a calm and familiar atmosphere. We live in the bush with quick access to the highway. we are between 35 and 42 years old. Looking forward to meeting people and rebuilding the town!

    In the town we have a cozy atmosphere, a natural space in the mountains, a nearby river and a very quiet area. We use traditional construction techniques, in the area there are abandoned towns to visit. We are Basque and as such we use Basque, if anyone is interested in knowing our language here they will have the chance!
