  • Description


    We are a couple from Germany (Annette&Christian) and we have bought this little Finca, three and a half year ago. It has 120 Olivetrees, some Orange, almonds and figues.The place here is very quiete , acces by private road. During the summer months we are offering a pool and outdoor kitchen. The location is beautifull with views to the see and to the Montcaro mountain in the parque natural els Port. Xerta is 4.5km away, there you can buy all the essentials.Tortosa is 12km away, we go there twice a week for shopping. Barcelona is 2 hours away. Airport is possible by bus. You can use our E-mountainbikes to explore the area. We offer a nice Caravan with privacy. Connected with electricity/gas for making tee or coffee. We are living off the grid, producing our own electricity. Annette is a Physiotherapist and Yoga instructor. christian is also a physiotherapist, but not a yoga teacher. When Annette is here, we offer 1,5 hour every second day to learn Yoga. We eat mostly vegetarian but Christian like to eat fish and meat sometimes. We need help with building /gardening in general and in November with harvesting the olives. The mediterranean see ist 30 minutes away.

    At July we have bought the Finca from our neighbour, now the whole small Valley belongs to us, there is water now from a fountain. At the moment we are building a Tiny house and preparing the new garden. See the photos.There are other projects in the near future, like building a waterdeposit that can be used as a swimming pool restoring a little ruin and so on.

    Update 2.0 September 2018

    Our Yoga House is quite ready. The Tiny House also is almost ready, but there is still a lot of work on the finca. We would like to have a person/couple that is living on the finca for a longer period, may be 3 month? Keeping an eye on everything ,somebody who like to do gardening as well. We would like to offer you for this period our Tiny House or the caravan area, that has everything you need. Please contact us for more Information. But we are looking for workawayers for shorter periods as well, especially for harvesting the olives(This year we do have less, may be only 500kg)

    Update 2.1 April 2019

    We now have a Hobbit campsite inside a little pine wood. With roof/fridge and anything you need to have a really natural feeling! In this space we also instaled a slackline and a huge trampolin. The chickenhouse is ready and we have free range chicken eggs. The Yogahouse is ready and everybody can use it, even when Annette is not here for giving lessons!
