    Hi, I'm Manolo , I live with a friend, Juampi, in Embalse de Calamuchita, Cordoba, Argentina. I live in a big house with 4 rooms.
    I'm starting a hostal project over the lake,

    The idea is to create a relaxing place where people could find peace and harmonny.
    I want to purpose different activities to do, like yoga, meditation, kayak, hiking, trekking, calisthenic, slack, climbing, etc.
    And I want offer homemade and healthy food, mainly vegetarian and organic, with probiotics and sourdough.
    I had a hostel and bar in Cordoba City during 5 years, but now I'm in a new stage, quietly and relaxed.
    I love to meditate every day, training with friends and cooking.
    In Embalse lives part of my family close to my house.
    I invite you to visit our beatifull valley and meet wonderfull people.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Embalse is a large town or small tourist city located 100km from Cordoba Capital. At the entrance of the Bungalow, you have a bus stop with a great frequency.
    The place is very safe. And our neighbors are my cousins, my uncle and my father.
    Here you can kayak or swim in the lake.
    You can also walk through different paths and visit the most beautiful panoramic views on foot.
    In the vicinity there are many tourist attractions. Calamuchita is one of the most important valleys of Córdoba. Where festivals are held throughout the year. You can also visit places like Villa General Belgrano, Santa Rosa, La Cumbrecita or El Durazno.
    Here is the highest hill of the Province. The Cerro Champaqui. And you can also find a lot of crystal clear rivers and lakes.
    I would like to make a win-win agreement with you.
    I also want to tell you that I need some moments of silence to meditate and study in the morning and in the evening.
    There are certain places in the Bungalow where alcohol and other intoxicants are not allowed.
    I preffered eat vegetarian, but sometimes I eat typical argentinian barbacue with my family and friends.
    Half of my family lives in the city of Córdoba. Normally I travel to Córdoba and return every two weeks.

    The house is on the lake and that means you can meet some little friends like spiders and other insects. I live in harmony with them and that is why I ask you not to kill them. Maintaining the cleanliness of the place each one will know which place corresponds.
