    Hello travellers out there!

    About myself:
    I love my life, in this quite and peaceful bit of land. Hidden between a tiny hill and endless fields, in the middle of no-where. My parents found it now 32 years ago, and I've been grown up here.
    After many years of traveling overseas and in Europe (by bike, couch-surfing, wwoofing, helping in other projects, growing and collecting inspirations...), I eventually came back to settle down here in this little paradise. I realized, this region has so much to offer! The sea and the mountains. Deep forests and cliffs.
    So here I am again. Creating my own paradise now.

    I live in a wooden hut, with solar panels and water from our own well. The shower is in the garden (with just cold water), the toilet is in the woods. I sleep in a wooden gipsy-caravan and there's a little wooden hut and a tent for our guests.
    Last year (2020) we started a COB-construction on site. We are currently building a new room attached to the wooden house. A new kitchen made with mud-and-hay walls! It's so beautiful to build with your own hands and with such natural and super local materials! Soon we'll start with the outer plastering of the cob walls (around End September 2021).

    I try to live a simple life, connected to the presence and nature. I run a little vegetarian/vegan and organic café in the nearest town and I sometimes organize events and other creative projects.

    I love gardening! Collecting seeds and sowing them. Harvesting and eating. Preserving the harvest, handcrafting and creating. I'm a creative and enthusiastic Vegan and Raw food cook and love sharing my food and spoiling my guests! ;p
    I am an active, positive minded and creative soul. I dream big and work hard to reach my goals, but always taking my time to take in all the beautiful details on the way, the unexpected surprises and gifts life brings alone at any step!
    I move around cycling and love the freedom of it! I once did a looong biketrip through Europe and dream of another one in the near future. I love sweet waters, hiking to my favourite waterfalls, swimming and having adventures, canoe-trips, etc. I enjoy traveling by train, hitchhiking, cycling and yes, I love hosting travellers too! ;)

    The land we live on is quite big and I want to transform it into a wonderful and magic garden! With abundance of food, flowers and bees! Cosy corners and creative details.
    The land is divided into a few terraces, with ancient and abandoned olive trees.

    I would love to share this place with travellers, nature-enthusiasts and let's-do-it-people!
    Those out there, who are willing to help with some work building, in the garden and around the house, will enjoy wonderful organic and vegan food, dis-connection in nature, skillsharing and all of it in a privileged area!

    We live surrounded by medieval villages within walking distance. I also have bicycles I can lend out to discover the region. We live in the outskirts of our village, just a 15 minutes walk away from the little medieval village. Where you will also find a pretty interesting iberian excavation site! Worth seeing! :)

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    You will be able to dive into a beautiful nature-connected lifestyle, close to nature and its cycles. We share everything with you. Our lifestyle, food, stories, culture, the gardens and spaces we created. You will be able to dis-connect and enjoy a peaceful surrounding, great and vital food, and learn while being active and a part of it all!
    We can share our knowledge in organic gardening (in harmony with the cosmic influences and permaculture thoughts), vegan food and vital rawfood, languages (I speak german, catalan, spanish, swedish, english and a bit of french, handcrafts (I love knitting, making macramé jewels, creating dreamcatchers, binding books, carving linoleum prints...), creative projects in general, COB building...
    As we live in the heart of Catalunya, you'll be able to get to know this interesting culture more. This is a really cultural area with many beautiful things going on! Organic markets, antique markets, food and events, historical villages and the sea, water sports and hiking routes....
    This region has soo much to offer! And our land and homestay too!! ;)

    Hey travellers and 'workawayers' out there!

    I'm currently WELCOMING SOME HELPING HANDS for a
    COB-construction and the maintenance of my veggie gardens.

    -Last year we started building a 10m2 new kitchen with COB-walls (mud and hay mixture), The winter came and we paused the project. Now we want to keep on getting our hands muddy! Finishing off the walls and adding the next layer of finer mud plaster. ACTUALIZED: We just finished the inner walls and are gonna do the last outer layer at the end of September!

    -Now in summer we also have a lot to do in the veggie gardens and fruit tree orchard.
    Weeding, general maintenance , mulching, preparing for the autumn sowings, and soon some mowing...

    -We are finishing the creation of a round outdoor-dancefloor! We now want to build a creative wooden fence with driftwood from the sea and plant some more ornamental plants.

    -We want to build a new compost toilet for guests...

    We are especially looking for people skilled in woodwork and with some building experience! As we need to build and repair infrastructure. Also those interested in gardening and permaculture and crafty projects :)
    Motivated and enthusiastic people are super welcome! :)

    I love languages! :D I lived a couple of years in Sweden and I always get really excited when I can talk Swedish with someone and improve my language skills with native speakers! :) Last year I started learning french with Duolingo and I'd love to deepen my french skills too. I find other languages, dialects and their historical backgrounds really fascinating and wold love to learn a few languages more ;P I am currently learning french -mostly using Duolingo ;) but practicing with some french people would be lovely!

  • Hébergement


    We can accommodate 1 or 2 travellers. For guests we have a little and cosy wooden hut and a big, comfy and secluded tent. The hut is on the second terrace of our olive tree land. Among trees and singing birds, close to my parents house. :) The tent has more private space around it, hidden among trees. There's a sleeping compartment with a comfy mattress in and an entrance room with a little table and some cushions. Both accommodations have no water nor electricity, but there are solar lamps and a few battery run fairy lights for extra cosyness! We share all the meals in our garden or when the weather is colder (or it rains) in our living room in the bigger wooden hut. We don't have much electricity (as we produce our own with solar panels), but you can charge any electronic devices (such as your phone, laptop..) in the bigger hut. We can provide you with blankets, sheets and towels!
