    Description

    We have an off-grid finca in the Catalonian hills of Mora D'Ebre close to the Ebre River, famous for it's giant catfish. We live in complete solitude surrounded by hills and pine forests however we are only 5 minutes drive down a religious camina to the pretty river side market town of Mora D'Ebre,which hosts numerous bars, resteraunts, cafes and shops. The beautiful church of St Jeroni is only up the road from our Finca and is a place of local fiestas as well as a place of worship.

    We have 16 acres of farm land which consists of Olive, almond and fig trees, our water is from an under ground cisterna which is fed by rain water and our electricity is suplied by Solar panels and the beer is supplied by the local bars!
