    Description

    We are renovating an old farm in the heart of the Alpujarras.
    We started 2 years ago with one of the houses. Its finished now. Also with the work of volunteers.

    At the moment we are working on the outbuildings and on the land.
    Cleaning the land, planting and trimming trees.

    I am an open and talkative person.
    Like to share the land and my life style with people who are intrested in a life far away from cities :)

    Oh.. The winter is cold here! Very cold!
    January till march.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    First of all, The area is amazing here and has a rich history. I am a chef myself so i can teach some dishes.
    Also I have hosted many people from most parts of the world and traveled alot.
    They can learn that there is another way of life, an easier life close to nature.
    Discover some historic secrets on the farm maybe.

    we are renovating an old farm. So the chores will be: clearing land, building small eco projects, trimming trees, rebuilding pathways and terrasses, rebuilding old farmhouses and sheds. Guiding water. And of course any idea is welcome!

    We do building here mostly! We work mornings, so get up early is a must sometimes.
    Also we try to grow our own food.
    Some cooking skills are needed, and we like to cook together when possible.
