    Description

    I am German and have been living in Andalucía/Spain for 30 years, have two wonderful children, both were born in Andalucía.
    I have dedicated my professional life-time to Fair Trade and Solidarity Economy. I live in the very heart of Córdoba´s historic center, and am happy to share my home with guests (opening my door to travellors from around the globe) and cultural activities. I am a social activist, with different engagements and dreams, and am happy to tell you more about them when we meet! I would love to welcome you here!

    Córdoba has a unique history of peaceful living together of cultures and religions, which is extremely enriching. Added to this, the Andalusian way of life will surely help you to enjoy your stay. Córdoba has a very broad cultural offer, with many events for free. And, depending on the time of the year, you will be able to share and enjoy within a small group of like-minds (workways and people sharing the - big - house, with its community spaces (two courtyards, an outdoor kitchen and a terrace).

We welcome persons from a huge diversity of social and cultural activities. Welcome to the world!
