    We are a family of 5, my wife and my 2 children (9 and 13) and my mother (77). We have a cat y 3 chickens. We strive to sow values in our children that make them good citizens of the world, therefore, we hope to interact with travelers who add to our purpose. In addition, there will be no option for alcohol consumption, smoking or any other drugs o vice because here it is not we make.
    In our house you will find a lot of green, flowers and depending on the time of year, you can eat mandarins and mangoes from our own garden. As part of the family business, we offer rooms for rent for long periods to single people, with good habits and manners, who end up being part of our family.
