  • Description

    Description

    We are a Moroccan family that felt in love with Colombia after travelling during 4 years in our motorhome with our 3 kids that are now 15,14 and 13 years old. We are managing an eco-farm in the beautiful mountains of Silvia-Cauca half way from the Panamerican Cali-Popayan to Silvia capital of the Guambia reserve. In the farm name we do organic agriculture, eco tourism and campground for travelers from all over the world.

  • Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Our concept is a sharing space between backpackers, Colombians and international travelers (motorhome or biking). Being 10 minutes from Silvia there are superb treks and intercultural exchanges with the Indigenous communities (There are 7 different communities but Guambia is the major one).
    We are in the process of enlarging our touristic offer through building private rooms in wood and Guadua.
    Since the farm is new, we need many help in foresting and flowering.
    You might also learn by interacting with our visitors from around the world.

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    We have rooms to accommodate 4 workaway people, plus confortable tents when rooms are occupied. Hot shower (Bosh propane heater) and a fully equipped kitchen.
    Our model is offering a weekly food shopping for our guests and they manage their own cooking. This doesn't not prevent from sharing meals among us.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    There are nice treks to do around. Visiting Silvia which is 15 minutes away from the farm, buses do pass by the main gate of the farm every 20 minutes.
    Popayan is an hour from the farm where it is easy going spending a date touring.
