Staying in Bogata Suma for a month was an incredible experience!
Barbara and Peter are such lovely people and I am truly thankful for all the conversations, learning, lunch and dinner times, all the passion shared about nature, for showing their visions about life and sustainability, everything was amazing!
Their children Noll and Fleur were a nice companionship as well, during campfires and other moments with all the volunteers.
The food was delicious and the caravan where me and my boyfriend stayed as well.
If you wanna be immersed in nature w/ nice people, that's the place!

My experience in Bogata Suma was amazing. I learnt many things about permaculture, but also I really appreciate the fact that Barbara and Peter tried to help all of us to find or develop our personal projects. This is the perfect place if you want to learn about permaculture, spend time in nature (I'm really going to miss my daily walks through the forest), and have time to reflect on your life and projects. Nol's food is amazing and super healthy! He taught me how to cook some delicious Croatian dishes and I've had such a great time playing cards and hide and seek with Fleur!

Dear Enol, it was a pleasure to host you!



I've been 4 weeks in Bogata Suma and it has been a really good experience. The family is really charming and I felt good since the first moment.
I've been working mostly in the garden with Barbara, because at that moment were no projects of building. I have learnt a lot of permaculture and the uses and properties of the plants. I am really happy with that.
We were working some hours in the morning and a bit more after lunch. The rhythm was calm.
I recommend it to everyone who wants to learn, have good conversations and eat delicious food!

Dear Debora,
Thank you for your nice review! It was a pleasure for us too to host you and you are welcome back any time.
Whenever we make your Bask lentil dish we will salute to you!
Love from Peter, Nol, Fleur and Barbara



Barbara, Peter y sus dos hijos son muy amigables, tienen un muy buen carácter, mi estadía aquí me lleno de muchos momentos de aprendizaje por el lenguaje y por el trabajo con la madera. también es un lugar especial para aprender de comida ya que encuentras un mundo de posibilidades nuevas. disfrute cada noche de comida en familia. para mí cada noche fue una experiencia gastronómica. que más puedo decir. hermoso lugar con un gran bosque para recorrer y una linda fauna que conocer.
