Our place is an eco-house set in orchards of Olive and Almond Trees high in the Contraviesa Mountain Range of the Alpujarra in Granada province.

The site is a little isolated (it up a track aprox. 45 minutes walk from the nearest main road and village) but this is more than compensated for by its stunning beauty.

The Cortijo is off-grid and has solar electricity, a solar oven, pedal-powered washing machine, solar hot water, compost toilet, and its own spring.

We have a pole lathe for volunteers to use in their spare time, which is the earliest type of wood turning lathe and is powered by your foot.
Our neighbour has horses and does trekking for visitors to the area.

Work can be varied but includes: planting trees to diversify the ecosystem here; making a natural swimming pool; harvesting olives or almonds; or construction.

We have been digging swales recently for passive water harvesting, there are many interesting projects so most people will find work of interest.

Make contact using e-mail, or phone is better as we do not have internet access at the farm. I am Ken and my number is 672 952405
