    Hi, we are Amaranta and Jan.

    we are a spanish german family with a 4 years old girl and a 9 year old boy (Alana and Silvan). In the beginning of 2016 we bought a piece of land around 2km outside of the village Torre de Don Miguel in a beautiful mountain area called la Sierra de Gata.

    The Sierra de Gata is famous for its forests, its rivers and the high quality olive oil and delicias goat cheeses.

    On our farm are growing around 350 olive trees and a lot of fruit trees. We produce our own ecologic olive oil and prepare as much as we can out of the fruits of our trees (such as apples, pears, kakis, pomegranate, oranges, mandarines, limones, almonds, peaches and more).

    During the last years we changed an old goat stable into an organic living house by using mainly natural materials and even if the biggest part is made, we are still working on it.

    We are artesans. So Amaranta is illustrating and does beautifull leather works, during Iam creating mainly kitchen knifes and others.

    So shortly that means, that we try to find a ballance by working with the trees, constructing our dream place and create our handcrafts.

    Since the last summer, we have an other project which keeps us even more busy. In August 2022, a big bush fire hit the area around us. Luckily, the biggest part of our farm and our house didn't got touched. since than, it is a big aim of us now to reforest the area around us. So, we are planting trees, build bird houses and do as much as we can to bring back the forest and animal life in the neighborhood

    We have electricity from our solar panels and water from our spring. Our Toilet is a dry toilet. We have three nice dogs and some chickens. Fresh eggs we get from the chickens and milk and cheese from the goats of our friends and neighbors.

    Our live is basic but very beautiful.

    We would be very glad if you like to help us. You should doing well with kids and be not afraid about dogs, chickens, cheeps, insects and the living in the landscape.
    We would be glad to show you the area and spend nice evenings outside by watching the incredible stars. We also like to have our family live and for this we are shurly not angry if you are independent and like to explore the sites by your self.
    We speak spanish, german, english and french.

    Intercambio cultural y oportunidades de aprendizaje

    As we are born and grown up in two different countries and have friends from a lot of different nationalities. So different cultures and traditions are quite often a funny topic. You will propably get in touch with the spanish and of course with the german culture as well. If you are interested in spanish traditions, than shurly you will like the old rituals of our village.

    Beside that you can learn with us all about olive trees and olive oil.
    The living and working with olive trees during the year on an ecological chemical free way. The harvest of the trees and the ways of making ecologic olive oil. We will explore with you the different types of oil.
    Based on the idea to construct with natural materials you will have an overview about the different methods of bioconstruction.
    We are surely not experts in all those things but we made our experiences and will make hopefully nice experiences with you together.
    These area is full of nice spots. In the summer the famous natural pools in tis area and the little bars beside, called "chiringuitos", are great to spend nice hours by relaxing and enjoying the time.
