    Description

    This is the home of Akasha and Angie Both are artists , Akasha From Holland and Angie from Uk. The plan is to transform the land and building into an outdoor art gallery, workshop space and a space for artist to relax and be creative in nature Akasha and her ex partner built 2 beautiful cob houses, and a pallet house but there is still so much work to be done . We are in Alozaina in the region of Malaga. We are around 3km from the village where you will find bars shops, banks, medical centre etc. In your spare time there is so much to see and do, we are an hr from the coast, and an hr from Malaga and Ronda and not far from the famous Camino Del Rey and the lakes .
    We welcome workers/helpers who love being in nature and have an interest in eco and sustainable living. We will teach you how to garden and clear the land so that we can start building our much-needed compost toilet and additional outdoor shower. We expect 5 hrs help a day from helpers.
    We offer accommodation in the pallet house and also the little cob house. We have an outdoor kitchen, compost toilet and outdoor bucket shower. We like to live as a family and , some nights we will cook for you and all eat together and other nights we will provide you with a box of vegetarian ingredients to cook for yourselves . We don’t mind the odd class of wine /beer but do not encourage alcohol in general. Angie speaks English and basic Spanish Akasha speaks Dutch German English and Spanish. As part of the bigger picture we encourage any helpers who are artistic to maybe make a piece of art to leave on the land. We will be hosting monthly art exhibitions where we will invite art lovers to visit us and purchase art. We will take a 20% commission from the sold art. The remaining 80% will go to the artist .
