  • Description



    I live in the mountains. I share land with a nice family, very good friends, they are four, a couple with their two kids. For the moment i use a separate part of the house, having kitchen for my own use.

    As i said before, we are in the mountain, surrounded by forest and a small river, however there are some fields too, where we grow vegetables for us, not for selling. We as well have some animals, among them there are cats, dogs, chikens, six goats and a mule, expecting shortly to get a pig.


    My main porpouse is to tend to self-sustained way of liveing, growing ecologicaly almost everything I eat and try to do as much products as possible depending less and less from the supermarket.
    Must be said i am on the way to, so slowely slowely I try it every day. As i try to decrease my way of doing, one of the things I do is to try to use as less petrol as possible, so I try to work with the help of a mule.
    We use solar panels and get water from the forest source, thus we are less connected to the net of big enterprises.


    There are two main purpose. The first of all is because I have so many things to do here (specially building a house), and would be nice some help, jejejeje
    The second and and not less important is because i would like people to know different ways of living in this world. I think we should live in a more sustainable way and in a more simple way. So just if some people get a bit inspired to live in the nature and with the nature, I will feel satisfied enough!!


    Just in the case, if you interest some information about me I am a 30 years old boy-kid interested in many things, among many I mostly like meditation, buddhism, simplicity and new ways of living and doing, self-sufficiency, permaculture, low ecologycal impact, come back to the origin, and the Art of living (wich I do my best to improve it day by day).
    I love to learn and teach, share with people and enjoy nice talks.
    Playing board games are a big hobby as well as play table role.

    You are very welcome to come and see and let hope we have a nice meeting.

  • Accommodation


    There are two options, i live in a very big room where i have everything, there is the option to sleep in this room, where i sleep too, or you could take a room from my friends part of the house, in this way you would have your own room, however you would use my kitchen and would live in my space.
    Concerning the food, i don't eat meat and very few fish, my meals are very simple based on rise, pasta, legums and vegetables and some fruit, even. I live very simple and so I eat. I use to eat oats and muesli for breakfast and two meals more per day. I will provide with everything I eat, but in the case you want something that I have not in the store of food you are welcome to bring anything you want for your own wish, no problem. I don't drink alcohol no problem if you make use of it with moderation of course, i don't smoke you can smoke outside not inside the house, no problem. If you smoke joints or use any other kind of drugs please better you leave them somewhere before to come here and don't make use of it during the stay with us, thank youuuu.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Well you can do whatever you want in your time of course, but we are bit far from "social activity". the house is 3 km far from the village, very small town 250 people, and 13km more from the next two cities (banyoles i olot) where you could find some movement. Without vehicle would be a bit difficult to move between the two cities freely, however there are ways to do it, always people coming and going from the small town to the cities, and we would find the way to move around, talking with friends, etc.... we use to go to girona capital ones or twice a week even more sometimes, so easy to joint us.
    The main thing is, that to move around it is not so easy, but very doable with some adaptation to the surrounding friends.
