    Description

    We are a family that likes to live in contact with nature, work in the forest in their free time and think about new projects to improve the sustainability of the environment. Every project we have done has been very hard and that makes us feel really proud. Our home is located in Ribes de Freser, Catalunya. Only 2 hours by train from the center of Barcelona. Surrounded by the most beautiful nature and mountains, the Ribes valley is located at the confluence of three rivers: the Rigat, the Segadell and the Freser, which form a Y-shaped village.
    Both Ribes and its surroundings are places that have a lot to offer. Its cool and pleasant climate during the summer, the beauty of its landscapes, the natural sources of water and the proximity to the big ski resorts, have made it a privileged place for a mountain lovers
