  • Description

    Description

    We are 4 people, 4 heads
    We left Basque Country in 2009, looking for a place to set up a family in a quiet, healthy place.
    Our babies were born in 2010 and 2012, we all live in the house we built together, next to people with similar thoughts.
    Our main aim is living in a simple way, with little needs, enjoying the time we spend with the kids, trying to produce our own resources, with respect towards other people and Nature.
    We would love to share all that with you, and so we invite you to meet us.

    We are in Uruguay, 12km away from Rocha town, you can reach us using any car. Taxi and services can be found in Rocha.



    Somos 4 personas, las 4 cabezas.
    Salimos del País Vasco en el año 2009; buscando un sitio donde formar una familia en un entorno tranquilo y saludable.
    Nuestros hijos nacieron en 2010 y 2012, viven en una casa construida por nosotr@s mism@s, cerca de personas que comparten inquietudes similares a las nuestras.
    Pretendemos vivir de un modo sencillo, con pocas necesidades, disfrutando del tiempo con nuestros hijos, compartiendo con los que nos rodean, tratando de producir nuestros propios recursos, respetando a las demás personas y a la naturaleza. Esto es lo que nos gustaría compartir con tod@s y por eso les invitamos a conocernos.

    Estamos en Uruguay a 12km de la ciudad de Rocha, se puede llegar en cualquier tipo de auto sin problemas. Desde Rocha existen diversas compañías de taxi y todos los servicios necesarios.
