I had a great time at the eco village! It was so nice to disconnect and really get in touch with nature. It was a really nice escape that I hope to come back to one day. The simple way of life brings us back to the basics and filled me with a sense of calmness. Thank you so much for everything Gonzalo!

I am lost for words, no short or extremely long comment could ever be enough to describe what the eco village and Gonzalo have done for me. Put in a simple way there was a before and an after the eco village. So from the bottom of my heart thank you! Thank you for creating such a magical place. I am deeply grateful for the time, the freedom, the space you gave me. I was able to be me , to play like a child again, to experience embracing failure. To learn a lot about myself , plants, everything really. Thank you so much for such an unforgettable and valuable experience. Take care, love. Meli

The project was such a special experience for me. The aldeaoasis is a place to connect to nature, to the other people there and to yourself. The work is fun, especially because you'll have lots of freedoms. I was able to contribute with things I already knew, but I was also able to learn many new skills! Gonzalo is a great teacher, and he was very thankful. The atmosphere during my stay was welcoming and open. We spend a lot of time together: eating, talking, stargazing and working of course. It is very different from what most people are used to, but it's a place that feels like home.

The eco village is quite the magical place. Surrounded on one side by rolling hills and on the other by vast vegetated plains, it invites one to become more at one with their surroundings, the people, and themselves. I found this experience very enlightening, and would recommend it for anyone who seeks to see a more sustainable way of living, in proximity to nature and a communal atmosphere. My experience included a lot of beautiful moments, with fulfilling work, lots of laughter and honest exchanges, as well as picturesque moments of landscapes and stars at night. Thoroughly recommended.
