  • Description


    We are slowly turning our land into a self-sufficient homestead. This place used to be a small village with centuries-old stone buildings that were left abandoned for many decades.
    In 2021 we began restoring the first house as well as the rest of the surrounding property. Enclosed by mountains, wild forests and untamed nature, the work never stops. The journey to self-sufficiency is a long one, and in between, there is an endless list of exciting projects to tackle :)
    We rely heavily on ourselves to provide daily necessities therefore it is not always easy. Oftentimes we are a few hands short, and are happy to accept your help.

    Ranging from daily meal cooking indoors to physically demanding labor outdoors, surely we have something for anyone as long as they're willing and ready to work.

    The usual stay would normally be around 2 weeks.
    However, we are also very interested in meeting and helping people who want to pursue this lifestyle themselves and would like to move and start their own place in the area. In such cases, we would be open to longer stays

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    North-west Iberia is a beautiful, green paradise that is also rich in history and culture.
    Natural beauty and attractions are plenty just about anywhere here. Whether it's trails and walks, rivers, beaches, small quaint towns or historical monuments, there's always something to see.
    Very little English is spoken around here, so if you want to learn Spanish, this is a very good place to do so.
    In addition to that, there's many valuable things to learn from a lifestyle that's close to nature, such as where our food comes from, what it takes to obtain and procure all (or many) of the things we use on our daily lives, the hardship of work(ing the land), the fragility of the intricate supply chains we rely on, and the overall unsustainability of high density city-living through mass global trade.
    We are always open to having deep and interesting conversations on many topics...

    In addition to looking for volunteer help, we are also very interested in meeting and helping people who want to pursue this lifestyle themselves and would like to move and start their own place in the area.
    The goal is to eventually create a sort of neighborhood and attract likeminded people who want to live a freedom-oriented lifestyle through self reliance and collaboration.
    There are dozens of properties and land for sale in the area, waiting for eager people to come and bring new life into it
