  • Description

    Description

    I recently moved to the mountains, to a beautiful land where i´m building my house with Cob - an amazing technique of building with mud. Travelers are welcome to share this experience, that is also a good way to reconect with nature, and to exercise. While resting you can enjoy the view, bath on the small river passing near by or visit the vilages.
