  • Description


    Hello, we are Katja and Jorge. We live 4 km from Barichara in the countryside, were we run an ecological project in a farm of 2 ha where we carry out reforestation projects, orchards, accommodation and plant based kitchen.

    We do our work here almost alone, sometimes we have a women helping us with the cleaning and in the restaurant.

    After living many years in cities and working in other areas such as literature, theater, history, cooking, gastronomy, we wanted to do something different in life. We arrived here attracted by the charm of the countryside and we have built following the traditions, with tapia pisada (rammed earth) and the materials used in the region.
    Our project is oriented towards sustainability and respect and restoration of the natural environment.

    Seven years ago we acquired the property and we have been transforming the area and recovering the natural environment. We opened a small three-bedroom hotel to accommodate guests interested in disconnecting from the speed of the current times and enjoying the wonders of the countryside and the natural wealth of our surroundings.
    We have regenerative, conservation and food sustainability implementation projects. We love to cook and eat well and healthy.

    We have a beautiful landscape and spectacular views to the mountains. Barichara has a pleasant temperature all year long.

    We are open minded, interested in cultural exchange, we like working together and open to learning something new too.

    The place to stay is a room with a double bed, so we can receive single people or couples.
    We have local farmers here sometimes, so it would be helpful to have some basic knowledge of spanish.
