Holiday in a Sustainable Lifestyle in our Beautiful Yurt
We are all now extremely conscious of the pressing need to change our ways of life and outlook, by living in harmony with our environment and at the same time rewarding ourselves with the bounties that can come from a sustainable way of living.
Here you can experience how comfortably we can all live predominantly from our own resources in an uncomplicated and inexpensive fashion. Solar energy supplies all the electricity for our yurt. The hot shower and compost toilet is part of as clean and fresh a bathroom suite as one could hope to meet anywhere, and will, we feel sure, convince any sceptic that this is an agreeable non-polluting and effective alternative solution to plumbing.
The yurt is low impact and was made by local people using local materials and will leave very little footprint on the land once removed. Our business is small scale and family run; hence we feel we can give our guests our best.
We try to ensure that everything we use here is biodegradable, for the simple reason that otherwise we would upset our organic water filtration system and recycling process. Our grey water is filtered through sand, shingle and charcoal and redirected to water trees and vines that are precious to us. The terraces were cleverly designed to conserve all the water that comes down from the hills around us, which is collected in tanks, and supplies our needs.
Our garden produce is grown free from pesticides, artificial fertilisers or insecticides and is included as much as possible in our menu options. We use a raised bed, no dig system that we mulch heavily to maintain healthy moisture and nutrition levels. We tend our little haven with love and a belief that through treating it with respect and care we can leave a positive mark here. Quite simply we keep it as free from pollution as possible.
There is a great deal in the vicinity to offer the eco-tourist from cultural excursions to wild swimming, on which we supply information in the yurt. Yoga, massages, and reflexology are available in the yurt itself just let us know and we can arrange them for you. You can indulge in hill walking to your heart’s content; there are many paths to follow. Or else you can go to the nearby Cuevo del Gato, to bathe and swim deliciously in its mountain rock pools.
Alternatively just lie back and relax here in front of the yurt while we serve you wine, cocktails and delicious home cooked meals.
We look forward to your visit.
Hannah, Derek, Theo and Ella
