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
