    Description

    Hey there! We are a small family looking for self sufficiency and happiness in this crazy world... so we created a small space on a majestical (lol) mountain in Spain. We are building our own house, growing trees (mostly fruit), have two wolves, five hens and a rooster. We are looking for a small family, couple or single person willing to stay and build something similar. There is way too much space and opportunity to live here just ourselves (28 hectares). We do not want a "community". Just friendly neighbours that watch each others backs. So to begin though we would like some help on some projects, this will all be balanced with what you can bring to the table. If you have very little to bring but still much to give we can support this as well. We speak mostly English , but also can communicate in French and Spanish. Thank you so much.

    We can teach you about our mountain and the edible fruits that grow here. Some adventure stories and lessons about off grid life and child raising in this time. I have had several lives that I can share wisdom from. Also if we like each other and the place we can provide space to live and materials to build a life here.

    We are looking for someone who can take a task and go with it. There is so many different types of things to do here: aircrete dome building, painting, gardening, walkways, moving stuff, tree care. We go slow so sometimes there is big things to be done but we live a full life and pace it out. No worries about being overloaded.

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    Camper van 5 meters long with king bed, table and couches that can also be turned into another king bed. For the winter you can stay in our yurt that we only use for cooking and storing goods, so basically private during the evenings after dinner. Heating in the yurt is by wood fire stove. There is also an outdoor shower and kitchen that is shared. Separate shed for the shared uppity style compost toilet (Separett® toilet).

    It would have to be able to get up the dirt mountain road. You would have to check it out first. You could not get out in the rain most likely.

    Of course there is plenty of space as long as we can deal with our dogs and chickens! ;)
