    Description

    A couple of months ago we moved into a large beautiful house 1km from Pedasis town center on the countryside. walking distances: 20 minutes to town, 15 minutes to the closest beach.

    It was run as a Bed and Breakfast and Pizzeria. the property is aprox. 4000m2 with a lot of green and a little river right next to it. Since we arrived a lot of work was already done, therefore now the place is liveable again and can be used even to rent out again. We live on the property and receive visits, mainly from friends and family. at the same time we will be creating all kind of stuff out of recycled material or others (art, paintings, furnitures, others). The space is perfect to get inspired, tools and machines are available to build stuff right on the spot! be prepared> the house is on the countryside. we live in panama. there are all kinds of insects and animals around. at night you do hear a lot of natural noise which is... normal ? ;)

    We are Ben, a Swiss/ Chilean ex banker (he was involved with a pop up art gallery in Panama city and Nico (owner of a cool bar in town los primos )

    you could get inspired and you could inspire us. we help in everthing . each one helps the other one. what needs to be done needs to be done. we speak several languages, we have some own made art at the house. there are always visits from local friends or from abroad. the traveller will benefit from the spirit of the house, will learn about art, will learn about life, about to collaborate, about to inspire. there are 2 cats and 2 dogs. all friendly.

    we will cook all together, breakfast and diner we usually have together, therefore the traveller / workawayer will be joining us as part of the family.

    Pedasi is a little fisher / surfer / agricultural town with a nice mix of local people and foreigners. The Beach from the place is within walking distance. There are surf boards to use (beaches are meant for surfing). Other wonderful beaches are all in the area. There are many little charming opportunities in that little town where it is best to move by bicycle (available as well at the house)
