  • Description


    Located in the mountains of La Safor in Raco del Duc, Villa Josefa is one of the only houses you will find in this national park. We are a 30 to 45-minute bike ride to Villalonga where you can get groceries or go to a restaurant.
    Gandia is a larger city 20min car drive from Villalonga, there you will find all you might need.

    The house has been abandoned for 8 years, for a year Nika and her friends have been renovating the place to make it livable and magical again. There is still a lot of work to be made in and around the house.
    For the moment we focus inside with general renovations, and later this year we will start developing the permaculture garden.
    The skills we mostly look for are construction, renovation, building furniture, carpentry, gardening, landscaping, painting, plastering, and plumbing.

    You will live in the house with Nika and Dor, Nika french Canadian painter dedicated to spiritual practices, Dor Israeli architect and stoic philosopher, as well as Juanita Banana, a lovely Spanish water dog.
    If you have an interest in arts and spirituality it is a plus, but not a must.
    Food is provided, we go shopping once a week in the car and gather drinking water at the nearby spring.

    No cars are allowed in the national park except for those living there. If you plan on staying for a long time and you have a car, we could register it at the town hall to be able to drive to the house. Otherwise only bicycles are allowed on the trails.

    On your off time, you can enjoy the river and go for hikes which are numerous around the house.
    If you have a car, the beach is only a 20 minutes drive, as well as Gandia and Oliva who are larger towns with many amenities.

    Nika speaks French, English, German and Spanish.
    Dor speaks Hebrew, German and English.

    We look forward to welcome you here!
