    Description

    Hi there! We are Marina and Maro.
    We have just moved to a beautiful field in the most marvelous valley in the area, in Malaga, southern Spain.
    It is a land full of fruit trees, life and a river of clean and transparent water.
    A wonderful environment!

    We have started a beautiful adventure with many projects and open to new ideas, so it will be a space for you to contribute with all your experience and creativity! We are designing a life with the principles of permaculture, edible forest, orchard, bio-construction, coexistence with animals, caring for the environment and local biodiversity, reforestation and regeneration of the ecosystem, and much more! Always working with care and respect for people, the community and nature.

    We have a free room in the house and we have it available for you! You could also camp by the river!
    The place is beautiful and the food is vegetarian (ideally organic, ideally from our garden when possible!).

    Muy buenas! Somos Marina y Maro.
    Nos acabamos de mudar a un hermoso campo en el valle más bonito de la zona, en Málaga en el sur de España.
    Es una tierra llena de árboles frutales, vida y un río de agua limpia y transparente.
    Un entorno maravilloso!

    Hemos comenzado una linda aventura con muchísimos proyectos y abierto a nuevas ideas, por lo que será un espacio para que aportes toda tu experiencia y creatividad! Estamos diseñando una vida con los principios de la permacultura, bosque comestible, huerto, bioconstrucción, convivencia con animales, cuidado del entorno y la biodiversidad local, reforestación y regeneración del ecosistema, y muchísimo más! Todo desde el cuidado y el respeto a las personas, la comunidad y la naturaleza.

    Tenemos una habitación libre en la casita y la tenemos disponible para ti! Tambien podrias acampar junto al rio dentro de la propia finca!
    El sitio es hermoso y la comida es vegetariana (idealmente biológica, idealmente de nuestro huerto cuando se pueda!).

    Private room in our house, or tent by the river, to your preference!
    The house is in the countryside but has all the comforts of a standard house, even a fireplace for winter nights with a cosy fire ;)

    If you rather spend the nights listening to the strength of the water underneath avocado trees, you can settle by the river in a camping tent. Into the wild !!

    La casa es de campo pero tiene todas las comodidades de una casa estándar, hasta chimenea para las noches de invierno y candela ;)

    Si te lanzas a pasar las noches oyendo la fuerza del agua entre aguacateros puedes instalarte junto al río en una tienda de camping. A lo salvaje!!
