  • Description


    Hello sunshine people.

    We are Andrea and Chris and we have our 6000 m2 land in beautiful Andalucía between Sevilla (50km) and Huelva (30km) in the south of the Sierra de Huelva. It is very good located, next to the portugiese boarder (ca.100km), the beaches of Huelva Matalascanas y Mazagón are to 30 minutes drive as the National Park la Doñana. Mountains, lakes and rivers are in the surrounding area.
    Our land has very good access for even bigger cars, ours for exemple is 7m long. It was an agricultural land of grape wine, (because this area is well known for its wine) and we want to convert it in a permacultural one, keeping part of the grape and plant many other plants, trees and build many things we need. We are also up to build a dog shelter. We started our project in May 2022 and build most of recycled materials.
    We are every day at work and realized very fast we can need some helping hands.

    If you want to learn how to build up a life off the grid, are interested in permaculture or taking part on artistic projects like making interior design with macrame technique, paint, doing mosaics, ecoprint, upcycle old furnitures or clothes build out of recycled materials or want to build up the dog shelter and take care of animales you are very welcome to join us.

    What else ...

    As mentioned there are many interesting places close actually for any tastes. Sevilla is to reach with train or bus for 6€ one way. The beautiful beaches of Matalascañas and Mazagón are halfen hour as La Doñana National Park. El Rocío ca 20km from our land is a very famous small town and deffinetly worth to visit.
    In the Sierra de Huelva beside the amazing nature with lakes, rivers, forests are an alternative life in form of occupied villages and lots of art. Also an art market once in the month is very close.
    The city Huelva is ca 40min drive and you even can go to Ayamonte wich is a very nice small town we love. Or you just cross to Portugal and make a drive around there.
