  • Description


    Alicia is Argentinian, Max is french. We met in a Natural Building workshop in Chile. We trained ourself in Permaculture in Argentina and Australia. We are looking for a simple and healthy life. We practice Yoga and meditation. We are vegetarians. We think that changing the world starts with yourself.
    St James way or the Camino de Santiago is a wonderfull experience, teaching you that you don't need a lot in your life to be happy. We want to share our passion about permaculture and simple life with the pilgrims so we bought an old stone house that we are rebuilding in an ecological way to be able to welcome few pilgrims everyday, offer them natural, organic and healthy food and a nice place to stay.

    Because we believe in human and ecological values and that it is possible to live in a healthy environment in harmony with its environment, we trained ourself in Permaculture and Natural Construction and started the project of our Casita, on St James Way (Camino de Santiago) in Spain. It is a meeting point between Permaculture, a simple lifestyle, and Pilgrims who are walking, slowly, towards Santiago and toward themself.

    Most of this old stone house is restored, but we still have details to work on. That's why we would like to have help with our daughter Maia, who is 15 month, so we can spend time with the construction.

    We are looking for someone who has experience with kids, and would love to find someone who knows about alernative educations.
    The help would be mostly in the morning (4 h from 9am to 1pm) and maybe 1h later during the day (we ll see together)

    In the afternnon you'll be free to explore the region, go to the beach (20min drive from here) or spend time in the garden...
