  • Description


    We are a mixed family: Noa is French-Venezuelan born in Israel, she is a chemical engineer. Cristian is Argentinian, and he is a Football (soccer) HeadCoach. We have a lovely 3-year-old daughter. (Si tu es français, stp écris-moi en français)
    We met in Buenos Aires, and decided to leave our jobs in order to travel a few months. We decided to settle down in Los Cocos, in Cordoba (Argentina) in order to auto-construct our natural earth house. We have an eco garden, a horse to take care of, and we are just starting a new natural house for my father and future volunteers right in our own land.
    Los Cocos is a charming mountain village. It is near La Cumbre and Capilla del Monte, famous for hiking, paragliding, and biking. Here you can have time to go to the rivers, do some yoga in a very quiet and green environment, take a walk and feel the nature around. You can also enjoy a night dinner out in La Cumbre or Capilla del Monte, where there are nice coffees and typical restaurants.

    We have received over 90 volunteers while building our own house, and the experience was great, this is the reason why we would love to continue receiving people willing to learn about natural building, eco-garden, permaculture and slow living.

    We speak Spanish, French and English.
