  • Description


    We are a Self-sustaining community / Eco-Village looking for new settlers and helpers. We would like to achieve as much as possible ourselves and are therefore happy to welcome visitors and perhaps also future settlers who have experience in handicrafts, agriculture, permaculture and similar.
    Right now we are a group of three friends and are already planting a lot, both agriculture and permaculture.
    The plan is, to sell vegetables and fruits in the future.
    Nearby are several small villages, rivers, lakes, mountains and waterfalls.
    So there is a lot of nature to discover, wander around, have a swim, play Pici or soccer with the neighbours or have a drink in one of the many bodegas.
