About venue

Our Healing Biotope and Retreat Venue is a place for transformational living, that supports inner growth and a sustainable way of life. Guided by the ethics of permaculture, we strive for a harmonious coexistence with nature.


We are an intentional, off-grid eco-community which is located in the midst of semi-arid nature in Southern Spain. We're committed to openness and a non-judgmental, no-harm approach. This helps us to deal more compassionately with each other, our environment, and the world.


As a healing biotope, we want to co-create a place that serves all living beings. We hope to inspire people from diverse backgrounds on their individual pathways of finding wholeness in their lives.


Life in harmony with nature


Guided by the ethics of permaculture, we strive for a harmonious coexistence with nature. Our mission is to transform the land of a former almond farm into a vibrant ecosystem that feels like coming home to all species.


Venue Rental


Our land is a place for exchange, learning, and deep transformation. We invite practitioners from all types of healing arts to collaborate and to co-create heartwarming and meaningful experiences for our guests. We tender our beautiful space for different kinds of events.


Note: The venue is a home for a familiy of three and a small community. Together with volunteers (workaway & wwof) we work on construction, gardening, maintenance and care of the land. During a retreat we make sure that there's support for cooking and cleaning. As rooms are limited, the place will not be crowded and it will be a safe space for your offerings and clients.

Location

In Southern Spain, our off-grid eco-community spans 48 hectares of a semi-arid land, secluded and surrounded by almond trees. Committed to openness and a no-harm approach, we cultivate compassion for each other, our environment, and the world.


A healing biotope, we co-create a sanctuary, inspiring diverse individuals on unique paths to discover wholeness in their lives.


Compassion and interconnectedness guide our intentional community's journey.


When it comes to the material site conditions, we live off-grid and therefore we have to be conscious with the use of (warm) water, electricity and heating. Our cooking and washing water comes from three wells on the property. We fetch fresh drinking water from a mountain village in the area by car (Velez Blanco). For electricity, we use solar panels.


Off-grid life means that we try to use only composting toilets. Every biomass we produce is valuable for nourishing the land. There are normal water toilets in the main houses (not inside the tents) that can be used, but we strongly encourage everyone to make a habit of the compost toilets, because the normal toilets still lead to sinkholes where the water is not reused and rather pollutes the environment.​

Here are a few recommendations for your stay:
1. We recommend using our compost toilet instead of the toilets in the house.
2. Please be careful in the consumption of electricity, water and gas. Please close doors and switch off lights when you leave a room. Please bring biodegradable shampoo/ soap for showering, we reuse water for our plants.
3. Smoking is allowed in our smoking area, please use the ashtray.
4. Please be mindful of leaving things on the floor or lower surfaces (there are children and pets around who could eat/play with them).
5. The fireplace in the main house should be used with care and always with the protective glass on the carpet to prevent sparks from damaging furniture or accessories. Close the glass doors when you're leaving the room.
6. Please separate garbage (paper, glass, compost, rest).
7. No noise after 10pm.
8. The area upstairs is for silent practices, working and meetings.
9. Please help us keep the living areas clean by taking your things to your room, folding up blankets and putting things back to where they belong.
10. If you want to bring your pet, please contact us beforehand. Currently we live with a dog.
