  • Description

    Description

    We are Paula, Nicolas (32) and Salina (1 year 8months). We've been living here for 7yrs, building our beautiful Octagone Wooden House, then building the Dome Guesthouse. Always building, or improving facilities as well as reforesting the sand soil. This is mainly what we've been doing this years. Last 4 years we've been focusing on Plant Based Food, and we provide some basic supplies in town (seeds, legumes, cereals). On Sunday we open our place to Local Organic Farmers who come and sell their veggies together with some Living and Cultured Foods we offer to the Community. Trying to grow our own food and improving sand soil to a more fertile land, with permacultural techniques, always learning from the surrounding environment has been our inspiration.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Punta del Diablo is one of the north eastern most points of Uruguay, 300kms from Montevideo and 40 km from Chuy, Brazilian border. You can get easily by bus, we´re only 2 blocks away from the bus terminal. We can share our bikes with you so you can get to know the town. We like to go to the "Laguna Negra" and the National Park and Reserve "Santa Teresa" some weekends so you´ll get to know the most beautiful places.
