We are Jose and Sara and living in a stone house, which is situated on a hill surrounded by ancient terraces with lot of active, traditional farming around. Jose is a mountain guide in his own travel company, doing responsible tourism in these mountains. Sara is organizing walking trips with german groups in our family business. But her big dream is to live completely independent growing all the food in her own garden. We do all ecologic in our garden and we grow our own seeds from last year harvest. We set as our direction to live selfsuficient in harmony with nature, getting energy from our solar pannels and water from the spring. We live with our 3 cats and our dog Bobby. We also started 2017 a time bank in our valley and we love to tell you about our project. In our free time we do music, we have a lot of instruments, we walk our dog, we read or make parties with our friends.
