Finca Les Taraioles/El Drago

A unique place, off the grid, but with confort..

We are a little ecological farm project (without commecial interests) with 3 hectares of olives , carobs, some figs and a huge garden. We have happy chicken, because they are free to enjoy the garden and 2 cats. We are orientated to permaculture in the way of Bill Mollison/Dave Holmgren.

Our finca is close to the Parc Natural dels Ports. The parc is located between Catalonia, Valencia and Aragon. There you can hike for days and can enjoy the beauty of the landscape and nature. From our finca you can walk directly to this mountains.

The sea is 25 km away, there you can enjoy e.g. the Ebro Delta and hidden beaches.

We are a maried couple since more than 20 years. Annette is a certified Yoga teacher, course instructor for meditation and Slow Jogging and physiotherapist. She eats vegetarian. Christian studied history and physiotherapy, likes to cook and eats fish and meat sometimes.

We have a Yoga house and there are special offers, if you are interested in learning Yoga and meditation (and Annette is on the finca).> You can train yourself on the trampoline and with the slackline.

Until the end of Sepember we have a pool with a relaxation area, also a room with an integrated cinema and a smoothie bar.
For accomodation we have a new wooden house, heated by wood with a private terrace, a caravan with compost toilet and little outside kitchen, a very nice campsite in a wooden house also with a private terrace with trees surrounding and a tiny home. So there is space, privacy and lots of nature to discover.
When you are on the finca , you are integrated like being a family member. We love to show you the special surroundings e.g. with a picnic, swimming in a river, hiking, taking our drinking water from a natural spring or looking for mushrooms in autumn. You can learn all about the olives (from the harvest to the oil and more products from the olives).

The next village is Xerta, it is 4,5 km away. Tortosa, a charming town, is only 12 km away. July and August there are a lot of festivals, for example this one: http://www.festadelrenaixement.org/en
We are now looking more for volunteers to stay for a longer period. Contact us for this.

Tha place and the surroundings are very beautiful, amazing for hiking. The finca is very isolated, though. Be aware that is very far from the beach and at least 1,5h walking from the nearest city where you can go to take the bus anywhere. The work was varied and from 9am to 2pm, exactly like agreed. I enjoyed moving around and doing different tasks. Also a very good experience if you want to enjoy some nature and peace. Not a place for a Spanish culture immersion because they are both from Germany, but we had a great time with them and the other volunteers.

The place was absolutely stunning, a really magical nature-experience. If you want to get in touch with the nature and live away from the city trouble, it's perfect. The work was very varied and you can learn a lot about handy stuff and gardening. Chris and Annette were full of knowledge, it was a interesting experience. :)

It was a good experience helping Chris to assemble a canopy and inner structures for their new camper van. The jobs may vary accordingly with their necessities... The place is in a rural area with lots of nature to check around (some close but others not much).

I had a lovely time staying here with my partner for 2 weeks. It's a beautiful site with mountain views and plenty of nice spots to relax. During our stay we helped to build vegetable beds designed to protect future plants from harsh winds, drought and sunshine. Chris is welcoming and full of knowledge about permaculture. I came away having learnt about eco-building, water systems and other principles of sustainable living through practical tasks and interesting discussions. His chickens are very friendly and the food was always delicious. I highly recommend this place to other volunteers!

The finca is a beautiful corner of the earth surrounded by amazing scenery. Chris is a nice guy full of interesting stories, insights on life and also a great cook! Work was varied. We mainly did construction, gardening, painting & some cleaning. The hours were always respected and the work/free time balance is perfect. You get lots of time to explore, relax, have privacy if that's what you want but also to socialise too. Nice chickens and cats, cosy accommodation and I am leaving with more knowledge of sustainable living. All in all a good experience :)
