  • Description

    Description

    This is a sustainable rural coliving and coworking space set at the heart of the natural park of Aracena and Picos de Aroche in Andalusia.  

    This project reflects the idea of building our tribe together: a community of like-minded people who believe in the benefits of connecting with nature, in the authenticity of rural areas and who want to contribute to sustainable development.

    The Sierra de Aracena, in contrast to well-known and frequently visited parts of Andalucia such as Malaga or Seville, offers closer, special contact with the local population and its natural, cultural and historical heritage. It is a perfect location for people who can work remotely (freelancers, digital nomads, artists, scholars, business teams, change-makers…) and who are looking for inspiration and development of their ideas. Working while living in small communities and in a natural environment can help to improve your concentration, creativity and productivity.

    Time in natural environments as the Sierra de Aracena, where our space is located, can bring nature back into your life and help you to counteract this deprivation that has become so endemic to our culture.

    We are a welcoming place, far away from the stress of the city, where you can go to work and be creative. A place where you can disconnect from your daily routine and enjoy focusing on your own personal and professional development.
