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: We are now looking more for volunteers to stay for a longer period. Contact us for this. Please note: Good command of English is required. We are really sorry to say this: Volunteering at our project is only availible for persons with an age over 23 Working hours are depending on the season from 8 a.m or 9 a.m until 1 or 2 p.m from Monday to Friday. In the week we are normally cooking together - so we are happy to share cooking recipes and exchange experiences. Only organic shampoo and soap are allowed on the finca. If you do not know where to buy, we can organise this for you.

We are a working on this project for 8 years, most things are done now. But there is always work, in the olives , in the garden and some maintaince. We are working 5 hours a day from Monday to Friday. Normaly from 8:30- 13:30 in Summer and 9:00-2:00 in Winter. Lunch and diner we do together, breakfast is by yourself.

My experience was short but pleasant. Christian is a good host, very conscientious and fair to the job, plus he cooks delicious. I’m very grateful to him for worrying about the health of my partner who fell ill and whom we had to take to the clinic. Without Christian's support it would never have been possible, since the farm is far from the city and taxis do not arrive at the place.

Chris es un gran anfitrión, preocupado y con mucha sabiduría sobre viajes, proyectos ecológicos y buenas pláticas. Lamentablemente tuve que dejar el voluntariado antes. Pero el tiempo ahí fue de aprendizaje y buena comida! Muchas gracias por todo Chris. Recomiendo visitar este lugar a todo aquel que quiera desconectar de la ciudad y aprender sobre permacultura.

Viviste con nosotros durante aproximadamente un mes antes de que te fueras temprano de Barcelona debido a la enfermedad mental de un familiar. Han trabajado de forma fiable, hasta ahora ha sido muy bueno. Había problemas con tu comprensión arcaica de los valores. Vienen de la Argentina rural, les falta intelectualidad, me adapto, siempre veía este fútbol con ellos, aunque no me gusta mucho. En realidad estás huyendo sin dinero. Al final me preguntaste si podía dar información falsa a la embajada alemana para una visa, yo era el responsable, en realidad un criminal.
