  • Description


    Welcome to our farm . Hi everyone my name is Jo. I live high in the mountains of Ricote Spain. Myself and my fiance Micky have a very run down 400year old farm we wish to reform the house and grounds. Our dream is to build a hobbit style village and offer eco holidays, but that is a long long way off.
    The accommodation, well it's not the Ritz but its clean and we have electricity water and wifi...just lol. We are very easy going in our early 50s going on 20s. We would love help with the house,land or even the 40 animals we have rescued ( dont panic 30 of them are chickens ) fresh eggs for breakfast??? One day we hope to be totally self sufficient. You will have use of a car or we can run you where youd like during your free time. We live a 20 minute drive to nearest town. This is truly a beautiful place and if peace and tranquility is what you desire then our farm is for you.. although we do like to let our hair down too.
