    URGENT NOTE: We don’t host people for one week.

    Estamos envueltas en la bioconstrucción, nos vendría bien una mano con mecánica, con algunos vehículos, y personas que sepan de carpinteria o albañileria...muchas gracias

    Welcome to our page...!

    I am Asun (Spanish girl). We have 9 acres of exceptionally beautiful and wild land just inland from Malaga. We are working with the hillside to make a beautiful, environmentally positive place to live and would love to share this work with you.

    We currently have two yurts and two tippis and have installed 4 solar panels (with more planned soon). We are working on rainwater collection and have recently dug a well on the land which now needs completed. We have some terracing to grow vegetables and are looking to extend this further. So far we have melons, strawberries, chard, peppers, verdolaga and lots of herbs growing happily, in addition to the almond and olive trees that were already here.

    Over the coming months there will be a lot of activity on the land as we build communal areas (outdoor kitchen etc) and we are looking for helpers who are not afraid to get their hands dirty!

    We speak Spanish and English. Asun lives in Spain and Alexis (me!) lives in Scotland and will be making regular trips over to work on the land until the wonderful day when I can move over permanently :) You will also be sharing the hillside with 3 dogs and a cat.

    We're committed to environmental sustainability: all of the food we grow is organic. We're eager to share our knowledge and to learn from our guests.

    There's always gardening to do- watering, weeding, picking, eating. Some time soon we'll need to put in a simple trickle irrigation system. We have a lot of light construction to do: current projects include building an outdoor kitchen, seating areas, pumping water from the new well up the hill and installing a flushing toilet!

    Making terraces in the hillside is an ongoing process to provide space for gardening. A lot of this involves simple carpentry, which we would be happy to teach you about if it's not a skill you already have.

    There can also be a lot of mouths to feed so help with cooking would also be welcomed!

    Tipis, and tents. If you are able to bring your own tent this would help us greatly.

  • Algo más...

    Algo más...

    We're fifteen minutes' walk from a little village with a few bars and shops, and five miles from the beach and a small town.

    The centre of Málaga is just ten miles away, and there are regular buses. Málaga has a great range of cultural and leisure activities on offer- the Picasso, Thyssen and Pompidou museums, the Cervantes Theatre, Moorish, Roman and Renaissance architecture, and of course all the bars, restaurants and nightlife you would expect from a bustling student and tourist destination.

    If you prefer life's quieter pleasures, we're surrounded by beautiful natural/cultivated hills which are very popular with determined local cyclists. The hills also provide a home to a wide variety of wildlife, from rabbits and vividly coloured grasshoppers to eagles and hawks.

    We try to be environmentally friendly and would like our guests to respect that, but we also respect that everyone has their own perspective and approach.
