    Description

    Hi, I'm Sven and living here for over three years. I love nature, people and the land.
    The project was started to escape the hustle of the normal world and to lead a pleasant, respectful life. I try to produce most of the food myself and use resources sparingly.
    The drinking water is fetched from a nearby spring, electricity is produced by a solar system and a lot of the work is done by hand as well with tractor and other machines.
    The farm is almost 2 hectares in size, there are various animals, cork forest, olive trees, wine and a large garden.
    The aim of the project is to live as independently and sustainably as possible.
    All skills and all loving beings are welcome.
