    Description

    Hello peeps


    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.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Our house is in the mountains but only 20 minutes drive away from the coast, La Villajoyosa. It is connected with public bus monday-friday. We live in an outdoor area with lots of walking and climbing in the enchanting surrounding of Sierra Aitana with summits above 1000m. The house is situated outside the village of Sella in the middle of the ancient green orchard looking down to the river. We have a bycycle here for you to use any time. On your free day Jose can take you climbing or walking or doing a Viaferrata. We are good fun, love to be outside, doing jam sessions and artistic games, like creating furniture with recycled things.
