    Descripción

    An off-grid finca in the wild and ancient mountainous lands of Tivissa, Catalunya. Secret Valley Finca is an organic 30 acre 'wild' and natural farm nestled in a hidden mountain valley, clinging to ancient terraces and surrounded by forests. It's completely private, no neighbours, just nature. Olives, hazelnuts, almonds, cherries, grapes all grow in an eco friendly manner surrounded by forest, scrub and hiker pathed mountains. Living close to nature and enjoying great food, good company, exploring and traveling too.

    Under an hours drive from Tarragona and two south of Barcelona, a historic hill town is nearby and the beaches of the Mediterranean just 25 minutes away. There are wild boar and deer in the forests, great hiking and mountain biking paths starting from the finca and the Mediterranean for swimming, kite surfing and snorkeling.

    The farmhouse is small, completely modernised inside; it still looks like an ancient workers cottage hugging the steep terraces. The nearby guest caravan is for your exclusive use. It is your private space to relax, forget the world and enjoy a peaceful lifestyle. This is the perfect place to get away from it all, experience living off-grid and be close to nature, to bring skills and learn new ones, to have fun and take away good memories. We can only accept one person at a time due to our limited off-grid facilities.

    I am specifically looking for these skills, so if you have one or more of them, please contact us, but only if you have capability and experience in these areas:

    - grass/weed cutting with petrol strimmer
    - chainsaw trees & logs
    - land clearance
    - pruning olive trees

    If you can help with one or more of these, get in touch with your dates!

    Thanks for reading this far.
    Kevin

    English is the main language. You are welcome to hang out whenever you like, in the house and for trips to the towns and cities. Here you will try escape civilisation - the views in the daytime and stars at night are amazing. No neighbours, just raw nature. It is a happy, enchanting 'secret valley' finca you will always remember.

    Independent caravan for your sole use. It's comfortable, private and you will wake up to the most amazing views of the rising sun's rays hitting the mountain peaks surrounding the finca. It is off-grid so that means careful with water and power - plus there is a compost loo! Plenty of internet so you can stay in touch with the outside world as much as you like.

    You can make your own breakfast in the caravan from food provided - other meals are with me in the nearby casita. I cook creatively and eat well - so you will too.

    You hike / walk through the almond groves and forest paths to the nearby hill-town (25 mins). I often drive to the bigger valley towns or to the coast for a half day out on the beach so can take you exploring too.

    Early in the year life is very quiet and mostly restricted to the farm and open land around. A couple of visits out for shopping, but days are short and nights are cold in Feb/ March.

    Normally lifts to local towns to beaches. Also to the local train station to visit Barcelona.
