    We are a French-Dutch couple (62 and 57 years old) living in the Sierra de Huelva since 2005, on a little farm, which we try to make as self-sufficient as possible. We keep a vegetable garden and are independent on water and energy. We have had goats until recently, made cheese and yogurt, but we have decided to replace them for fruit-trees and chicken, incompatible in our space with the goats.
    This autumn/winter we are going to prepare part of our land (about half a hectare) destined to plant fruit trees.
    We are therefore looking for help in preparing the land for planting trees, design the watersystem and the actual planting. We would be very pleased to receive people with experience in these matters, such as experts in permaculture, gardeners, people with a view on fruit-trees and ideas about organising an orchard.

    We have 5 grown-up children in the age between 38 and 18 that come and go, all of us speak, Spanish, English, French and Dutch (Flemish)
    François is an eco-builder and Marie has been a cooker, translator, social worker and more.

    We are hard-working people, but enjoy very much a good meal with fine conversations. Although we are not strict vegetarians, we prepare mostly vegetarian and vegan meals.

  • Alojamiento


    We are happy to share meals with you. We can offer you a two-persons guest-room with its own toilet and shower. There is place for a camper-van to park on the finca, but not too big, since the track is narrow in some places.
    We are situated about 3 km from the nearest village in the natural-park of Sierra de Aracena, in a beautiful nature of rolling hills covered with cork-,chestnut-, and olive-trees at about 700 m altitude. Ideal for walking, cycling or horse-riding.
    We have a horse, which is available for rides, if you have some experience.

    Algo más...

    Living in the natural park, is an experience on itself. The local people are enchanting.
    We, as a family, are happy and used to share our life with new people.
    The area has got a number of small beautiful white villages, all are worth visiting. The park is a paradise for horse-riding, mountain-biking and walking. There are daily buses to Seville (2 hours). We are a working people, but like enjoying a good meal and a nice conversation on our grapevine-covered terrace. Or nearby the stove on which we prepare our winter meals.
    We have bicycles for you to use if you would want to explore the neighbourhood on pedals.
