The Exchange

We're an eco-village with the purpose of reconnection with Nature and a will to work for the awakening of consciousness and work on self, all this supported by an atmosphere of joy, trust and liberation from false ego. We have 3 yurts, 1 straw house, 1 caravan, 1 tipi, 4 compost toilets, a kitchen, a meditation circus and a bathroom with sauna. We live in an olive garden in a National Park in front of the Adriatic cost (800m walk)
