  • Description



    We are a French family : Gwenola, Yotam and our 3 years old son Sabbath living in Costa Rica for 3 years ½.

    We are creating our paradise in the mountains, reforesting pastures with a lot of fruit trees. We both have certification in permaculture and our goal is to create an edible forest. We also grow organic veggies.

    We cook a lot, we become vegetarians. We make fermented food and drinks, bread, yogurt, cheese, mead etc...

    We also like art, metal music, cinema, photography.

    We live in a super quiet place but not isolated : we live between San Ramon (15 minutes drive) and la Fortuna (1h30). The bus stops at 5 minutes by walk. If you go in direction of la Fortuna at 15 minutes drive there are touristic activities like butterfly garden, bungee jumping, canopy tour...
