  • Description

    Description

    The Eco project was born from the idea of bringing together artists, mysef and Partner are Producers with same interest, restoring ancient places with charm to make it suitable to reunite wih other artists, take care of mother nature, enjoy and share the silence, harmony, grow our own organic and seasonal food, enjoy while discovering among other friends and Chefs the Art of slow cooking.

    Main reason was that we both travel a lot, only access to processed food, no mineral water, non organic grown veggies and, so on. We started with a Detox Diet, I organized several health retreats and slowly came the idea to bring it all together and share with those who are sensitive to it in exchange of social-cultural gathering.

    I have travelled co-living with many Tribes in different countries, learning about natural medicine, healthier life habits, mother nature insights as studyng the teluric energies and their benefits for the Kundalini expansion.

    We first started with an old distroyed XII Fortress, We soon plan to move into the new space, recently we have signed with an XV old Castle with vineyards and olive trees, has been abandoned for many years and we would like to create a Green space bringing all our experience from the previous project and giving the opportuity for others to learn from our Fun & Creative adventures.


    Last year we started and now we are ready to invite workawayers to join us !!!!

    You are more than welcome to become part of the Family, to help us restore Protected Heritage and learn lots of lots through our collaboratos and ourselves. Sharing is All. Namaste.

  • Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Our land is just about 5 minutes from the beaches of Sitges, a very popular small town with lots of museums and beautiful old town. Also by train/bus at 25min you can reach the airport and Bcn City, for other multicultural options regarding Arts or just visiting the City. Our new space is mainly related to Arts, people who like to spend few days and practice or write some music or books, is like a large family, where we all share the joy and wisdom related to mother nature, from permaculture to recycling, restoring old woods or stone pieces, gardening, decorating new areas through feng-shui arts, meditation, music circles at night, learning how to cook seasonal & organic food, make your own organic bread, jams, preserves, picking olives, descovering and tracing pack travelers routes, testing the mountain bike routes, general maintenance of the Castle and pool with health benefits (special sea water) open in the middle of the field with beautiful views, learning how to create a selfsustainable garden around the pool, learning how to make your own insect repellent (organic) and sooo many other things, the most important is "sharing" and leave a mark of your stay while placing one more stone or just decorating a fairy corner in the garden or creating new meditating spaces, creating the Mandala orchard, therefore it is important to bring all your passion so to create among the rest the best piece of yourself and leave it here for others to admire and, value.

    Many artists join us, as for painters, musicians, piano, guitar, gipsy box, others, singers, writers, poets, film producers, coreographers, most of them come to relax and join us for some organic food and, silence in the middle of the nature. We are a big family of Artists, feel free to join us, discover yourself.

    Accommodation

    Appartment refurbished and cool near to the Villa. Has private kitchen though we mainly cook and dine at the garden kitchen downstairs. 5minutes distance from first town and 10 minutes from the beaches of Sitges.

    We will meet in the morning with tea & yoga, then breakfast, we delegate the tasks or activities per groups of interest, later on we go for lunch, we end and organize the activities for the day after and you can either take a bycicle and ride around the mountains, visit the nearest town, go to the beach or just stay and relax. Early evening we have the last supper and bed or relaxing time to start fresh the day after. Some evenings we end with music circles in which other local artists join us for some meditating chill music and voices under the stars and candles.

    Boys will have their rooms and girls theirs, common areas as for toilets, kitchen that we will share and also will organize the karma yoga daily tasks, as for tidyng up, recycling organics to feed our orchard, watering plants, cooking or just setting breakfast, this will all be explained and organized on your arrival, we personally among the rest of colaborators will guide you so to assure your confortability. Wifi is provided in common area.

    We have the habit to practice silence, only mornings when we explain, rest of day we like to concentrate in our creation or restoration, to put our best intentions, in the free evenings or when at the appartment at the end of the day, you can share your experiences with the group and bring ideas or creative suggestions.

    We recommend to bring a sleeping bag, a beach towel and swimm wear, confort or tennis shoes and flip flops. In the evening is still a bit chill till mid June. Day time is very warm. In case of pale skin better bring your sun cream.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Some people bring their bycicle, others juse the ones we have, when not in use. Walking distance to the town is 10minutes. There is a bus service that takes you every 15minutes to the beaches of Sitges, another one every 30minutes to Bcn City (takes aprox 20minutes to airport) the name of it to check shuttle service is monbus.cat

    From Sitges you can also take the train and visit Tarragona the old Roman City, the Port Adventure, other town and beaches or just attend the Music Festivals around as Sonar, Vida Festival, Pedralbes Festival, Jardins Terramar Sitges Festival or the Film Festival in Sitges, this is the Heart for music and Movie Industry, mainly for creatives & artists.

    If you like the world of wine, we do colaborate also with a biodinamic wine celler who can introduce you to the Art of a wine maker. There are several activities and also the Natural Park of Garraf, something ou cannot miss to visit.

    We will guide you personally with the local know how, introducing you to some other local people and workawayers who are attending different theaters, festivals and venues that are happening from spring non stop to end of autumn.

    Mainly we consume what we produce but, when shopping others, we use the House car to avoid having to carry weight and others. Driving license is a plus, in case of need. The hospital is only at 5minutes from the Villa, should not need it but, in case of emergency, we are saved and well attended ;)
