  • Description

    Description

    We are an old farmhouse off the grid in the mountains of north Spain, near to the Pyrenees were the natives lived years ago. Down to the mountain we have a beautiful lake called Boadella Lake. Our project is pretty in the beginning and there are a lot of things to do in order of nature. We live sustainable and we have our own garden to grow a part of our food. We live together in contact with nature and work together with her. We live together with chickens, cats, peakoks, bees, wild pics and a lot of more beautiful beings. We want to create a green paradies with a lot of primitive techniques. We are looking for motivated, positive and lovely people.
