    Description

    Welcome!
    Some years ago we bought this beautiful land, next to the Gredos mountains, between the mountains. We have a project to open a space where people can connect with nature, with life and with others, seeking to change things for the better, always with a feeling of gratitude.
    Simply smiling is enough, simply living in harmony is enough, some days you don't have to do anything special. Most of the help you can give is in a natural environment, whether in the garden, in the garden in general, cooking or with the green building project.
    We can enjoy free time by taking baths in the natural pools that are 10 minutes away on foot, or doing a mountain route.
    There are also many old towns in the surroundings, where you can enjoy the Spanish culture and the typical products of the area, among other things.
    On the farm you can be calm, making music, or art, painting, among other things. Artistic activities are more than welcome!

    Bienvenidos!
    Hace algunos años compramos esta hermosa tierra, junto a las sierras de Gredos, entre las montañas. Tenemos un proyecto para abrir un espacio donde la gente pueda conectar con la naturaleza, con la vida y con los otros, buscando cambiar las cosas para mejor, siempre con un sentimiento de gratitud.
    Simplemente sonreír es suficiente, simplemente vivir en armonía es suficiente, algunos días no hay que hacer nada en especial. La mayor parte de la ayuda que puedes dar es en un ambiente natural, tanto en el huerto, en el jardín en general, cocinando o con el proyecto de bioconstrucción.
    El tiempo libre podemos disfrutarlo tomando baños en las piscinas naturales que se encuentran a 10 minutos a pie, o haciendo alguna ruta de montaña.
    También hay muchos pueblos antiguos en los alrededores, donde se puede disfrutar de la cultura española y los productos típicos de la zona, entre otras cosas.
    En la finca puedes estar tranquilo, haciendo música, o arte, pintando, entre otras cosas. Actividades artísticas son más que bienvenidas!
