Description

The space

“Agua” (Water) consists of a two –story building with two bedrooms and a shower. With three bunk beds, one double bed and one single bed, it accommodates up to 9 people. This house was built using natural materials and is attached to the main house.
"Agua" was built using natural materials sourced locally, which makes it an alive house directly connected with the inspiring and healing energy of the surrounding nature. It is also part of our ecovillage project, based on values such as respect between human beings and their harmonious relationship with nature.

We are an ecovillage project whose main foundation is permaculture (sustainable human settlement in harmony with Nature). We are located in a lush chestnut forest, surrounded by a large quantity of fruit trees and great biodiversity of wild aromatic and medicinal plants. Our buildings have been built using natural materials locally sourced following the principles of ecobuilding. We offer a wide range of natural healing therapies such as ayurvedic massage, alkaline diet, herbal medicine, body detox techniques, meditation, amongst others. Surrounding our ecovillage, you can find several hiking routes to other villages with Arab features and magical parts of the forest. We offer organic vegetarian menus made from locally sourced ingredients. We also have an open wooden lounge for activities such as yoga and meditation. Diner with wood oven bread making. We specialise in eco-accommodation in connection with the healing energy of nature.
Feel free to use our open wooden lounge for meditation, yoga or similar activities. Enjoy a nice meal at our diner. We offer good healthy meals prepared from ingredients directly taken from our organic garden and homemade bread baked in our wood oven (ranging from wholemeal bread to bread made with sourdough starter and gluten free bread).
Go for a guided tour of our ecovillage project for just 5 euro per person.

We had an incredible stay here. Basic and simple, clean on all levels. Would recommend having a car to get around unless you plan for stillness and retreat. Africa hosted us with great love and attention. Thank you for sharing this place and your gifts with us!

África is a warm and welcoming hostess. Her children are sweet, enchanting and intelligent. I had a lovely stay. The farm is 20 minutes pleasant walk from the village in the countryside. África picked me up in her car, which I would recommend until you know your way. You will need to park your car in parking lot in village unless you have an outback type vehicle., which can handle the rough road. The bed is comfortable, and there is wifi and a kitchen for your use. Either bring food or you can pay for an excellent meal prepared by Africa. I also reserved a massage, which was very nice.

It is days after leaving Casa Africa and my mind is still trying to sort out this amazing locale. The host, África, is just simply an exceptional person. Her family, staff, and friends treated me kindly, warmly and welcomed me with open arms. The meals that were provided, were not only either grown in her gardens or a neighbor's, but were Outstanding in flavor and presentation. The property itself is remote and rural to say the least, exactly what I was looking for. Morning tea on the sun listening to the many many different birds sing the hearts out to a new day was the perfect way to begin a day. The kitchen/common dining is picture perfect, you are at once whisked away to hearth and home. There is brilliant wood working, painting, and sculpture throughout turning this rustic outpost into a unique enclave. Plenty of space and trails, and beautiful villages for hiking and wandering, or sitting, listening, chilling and reading. It would be an amazing spot for mountain biking! For all the positive experience I loved and enjoyed there are some realities that one ought to be aware. The compound is remote, if you rely on public transportation you are a train ride a bus stop and possibly a hike into the ravine. The internet WiFi is slow at best and non existent most of the time. The toilet is outside. Rooms can be cold (though All have small wood burning stove). Walls are thin, voices carry. There are five cats and two dogs. None of these were an inconvenience for me, just information to pass along. I would not hesitate to recommend to my outdoors loving family and friends, and truly hope the fates allow me a return visit.

Los habitantes están muy acogedor y servicial. Cuidado sin embargo que no se puede ir con todos los coches, que nos sorprendió un poquito... Pero cuando estas aquí es un descanso profundo con la naturaleza abondante y la comida excelente. Una descubierta increíble !
