Our aim is to create a community of like-minded people who want to live away from the stress of modern society and get back in touch with nature, and to eventually build a yoga pavilion and alternative therapies area.
Our place is in a remote secluded and beautiful valley in Aragon, Spain. Near to the Catalonian border. There is nature all around and great trails for walking and hiking. The place is perfect for getting away from the stress of modern society. You can really connect to nature out here.

We have renovated the old stone Casa into a fully functioning little house.
It is completely off grid, we have our own water/power/internet and sewage solutions. However they are limited in usage as they are not on demand commodities…

The place is very remote and isolated so this is for the adventurers out there, who want to enjoy nature as nature intended. We don’t mind if you enjoy naturism, its a natural thing to enjoy.. There is also a lake nearby which we regular visit, it’s a beautiful secluded area and great for a skinny dip.

We are also looking for new permanent members preferbly couples or a family to expand our small community to be as self-sufficient as possible. Anyone who wishes to join us in this way should be able to support themselves or contribute towards food whilst we get the community resources together and become more developed and are able to share our produce with each other. In exchange we will provide you with an area of land where you will be able to make your own small eco-friendly and discrete living space.

    Hope this finds you all well? Im a single British Builder of 41. Originally a plaster by trade, but after 24 years in construction i can turn to most things. I have all my own tools, and am genuinely seeking a different way of life really which is less stress driven, and to be amongst like minded people.

  11. Leroy Dyer

    This sounds like a very nice community building;
    I would like to get involved;
    I have been a carer for my grandmother for the last 5 years (until the end)
    I am searching for a community where i could start living off grid; Working on land (farming or building)
    I am an engineer and usually fix and repair machines (electro mechanical) I also repair computers and websites etc.

    I have worked on WWOOF in Turkey farming (organic / permaculture) also learning a lot about making jams and other preserves from produce ; as well as learning about shepherding and looking after farm animals.

    I have been a camper all my life and love to be in the outdoors; especially love wild food recently i have also become interested in building earth-ships and environmentally compatible homes. I used to build “Lofts” so building homes out of wood and other materials are not new to me.

    i play guitar and other instruments and generally enjoy laughter and conversation!

    I am English / Jamaican (European) currently living in London. i was planning to travel the Pyrenees searching for an off grid life! i would like to join this project if i’m welcome.

    Hi, we’re a family of 3 currently living in Wales. We moved out here with the intent of building our own off grid eco friendly home. We would love to volunteer and help out and learn a few things at the same time. We speak English, Portuguese, basic Italian, and I’m guessing we could probably understand enough Spanish to get by. Would love to hear from you.

    About four weeks ago I came to Spain to visit friends on the Costa Blanca and hoped to find a new future. Well this turned out to be a huge mistake. Life here is hardly any different from the rat race I left behind in Holland and, even though this is the off season for tourism, I’m getting mentally and physically ill from the mass of people around me.
    If you have use for a middele aged but healthy and reasonably fit volunteer with some experience in renovation of buildings aqnd with growing my own herbs, fruits and peppers I would be eternally greatful if you give a chance to meet you and see if you think I am worth keeping around for a while.
    I am not looking for a short visit, but my goal is finding a place for longtime living.
    Please let me know where to find you.

  17. Sam

    How many people are you now ? Are there children yet ?
    I am interested in a place to live with my doughter. Maybe we could visit to get to know you ?
    Kind regards,

  18. Stuart and Kara Rickford

    Hello Craig and Krista,
    We have not only dreamed but started to plan exactly how you both are living. The set up that you have and are building currently seams just what our dreams are made of. After reading all the comments that have been made from different folk that have stayed with you, our hearts have warmed more to the pair of you than the dream itself. We not only are looking for the off grid life but we are looking to set our lives around people exactly like yourselves. We likewise are hard working ,loving, kind people that have been searching for a opportunity like this. We would love to hear from you to see if we could arrange a visit. We truly hope to hear from you both soon.

    enjoy living the dream in the meantime.

    Stu and Kara

  26. Sean Mcfaul

    Hi there, I am interested in joining your venture, as I get older 50, I feel I have everything but nothing, if that makes sense. I have a profession that takes me around the world and a wife and 3 kids who I feel are not experiencing what life should really be about ! I also have started to search for some kind of enlightenment/ spiritual fulfilment. Please get in touch guys, thanks.

  27. irfan


    I am just about to start doing something similar for my family in Spain. I live in UK for now. It will be great if we could meet up share thoughts. I am about to head up to Spain to search for suitable land or country house. Give me a shout. at irfmehmood@gmail.com. Anyone else interested from UK coming along, send me email as well, Thanks

  28. Angel DeWolfe

    Hullo… I am currently in the Scottish highlands and after 16 yrs off cold wet weather have decided to move to Spain. I have many skills to share and I’m told I’m a natural comedienne :-). I would love to visit and help and learn more. I plan to buy some land in Spain this year 2017 as soon as I’ve ebayed all my non essential possessions. How do I get in touch with you?

  29. Tom Cook

    Count me in, I speak spanish, have medium experience in growing a variety of vegetables and keeping animals.

  31. Alan

    Hi, I’m mainly a construction guy, used to build pools dams , houses in Africa would like to get in touch and possibly come and visit with my wife, Cheers

  32. Erika

    I hope I found you. If your names start with C and K then it is likely I actually did.
    I read your message on a webpage for volunteers….but in order to reply I had to pay money.

    So….it all started with us with some dreams. Dreams of how the world should look like and how we felt in that world. Now we realize that we have been prepared to live a natural life since our childhood.
    We read the books of Vladimir Megre and those books set our hearts on fire! We are now determined!

    We…Henri and myself Erika and our son Tamás (2 years old) are searching for people and land in order to create an ecovillage…fully self sustaining and with deep contact with nature and the source/God.

    Since you already started an ecovillage I send you hereby this message to get in touch and see if we can be a match for long term or at least perhaps short term in order to learn from each other! We have several questions of course….mainly regarding homeschooling and the vaccination legislation since we do not vaccinate our son nor ourselves.

    We wish you all the best!
    Greetings, Erika

    I have skills from carpentry, stone building, gardening to teaching arts and philosophy. Hope to hear from you.

  36. Spencer Barnes

    Hi, I live in the US. I studied carpentry, I’ve always wanted to build a house for my self. I need clean air in my life. Moving to Spain may be an extreme way to go about it, but my life has always seemed to ‘reset’ every so often, and this may be a very good way to go about it.
