This is a peaceful place for those looking to get back to basics and reconnect with nature.
This is a peaceful place for those looking to get back to basics and reconnect with nature. We have a beautiful 4 hectare organic finca (farm) in the Alpujarras mountains, The finca has large terraces, spring water and more than 100 olive trees, almonds, kakis, figs, a variety of young fruit trees and a large garden. We live in yurts and there are several low-impact structures we use for accommodation, such as wooden cabins, yurts, bell tents and a tipi. There are shared compost toilets and hot outdoor showers. There is a shared outdoor kitchen space with a gas cooker and an electrical outlet for charging phones, etc. The yurt is heated with a gas stove.
The guest spaces are separate from our living space. The compost toilets, showers and kitchen are shared by guests and other members of our community. There is a spring-fed alberca (natural swimming pool) that is not fenced off, and safety of children is the responsibility of their parents.
We have 4 children (ages 14 months-9 years) and therefore are quite busy with our family routine and work on the finca but are happy to interact with guests when we have time. Our children are very friendly and always eager to chat, but we can also ask them to respect your privacy if you wish to have a peaceful stay.
We live off grid and have limited solar power. There is no electricity in the cabins or internet access available for guests. If there is sufficient solar energy, it may be possible to do a load of laundry for an extra charge. Our farm is organic, so please make sure all soaps are eco-friendly.
Vegetarian meals or a massage can be arranged as an extra.
If you would like to have meals prepared during your stay, let us know in advance. We ask 7,50€/person/lunch or dinner and 5€/person/breakfast.
It may be possible to pick you up or drop you off in Lanjarón for an extra 5€/one-way trip.
Please arrive before nightfall, as we usually go to bed early and it is difficult to show you around in the dark!
This is a strictly vegetarian (no meat or fish) drug and alcohol-free space!!! Guests who do not respect this rule will be asked to leave immediately. We prefer to share with non-smokers, but we are also willing to take smokers as long as they respect our wish to live smoke free and do not smoke inside dwellings or around others. In the summer, it is very dry and there is a high risk of fire, so it is not possible to make open fires or use candles. Water is a precious resource in Southern Spain and we expect guests to be frugal with water use. For the well-being of all the creatures on the land, we do not allow the use of wi-fi.
