(above figures from first farm, in 2015 we got another one)
the farm is on the north-west of the island,
at 10min drive from the town of Puntagorda
& 30min walk through the most spectacular natural scenery
The farm is located at an altitude of 750m above sea level, near many local beaches, with good transport connections yet in an area of very low risk of future high-impact development (because of the geography of the site).
Please note we do not give out our address to strangers (we like to get to know you quite well first) because this is our home & we value the intimacy & safety of our family. Please be thoughtful about this.
The 6 half-moon shapes are the gardens which are terraces in a small valley, the extended parts are the forest-gardens or terraces of the shares.
The areas of the shares are very similar in area but not equal, however all share-holders have equal right of use of all the shared installations (the buildings & facilities) so the share value is not based on area but on right of enjoyment of the whole finca.
The other larger properties (which are also for sale or soon will be) border on each side of this finca & are ideal for families - prices range from 40 to 140 thousand euros.
Our first priority is to find the ideal people for the self employment opportunities already identified and listed in this section of Butterfly Jobs, as this we think this inter-linking of skills and work-areas would ensure a solid EcoBusiness base to make the EcoVillage viable, based on our ten year observation of the region and economy. We are also of course also open to suggestions. Anyone with a back-up online business and a genuine interest & wish to also do physical work in one of these areas would be ideal.
But we don't live here as consumers of this beauty, rather as stewards & protectors of the land.
We do not want people to ask themselves "Do I want to live there? Will I like it there?"
but rather to ask themselves "Does this land want me here? Can I be of best service here?"
Because the first question supposes that land can belong to us, the second understands that we belong to the land.
Note we do not publish our address nor give it to people we don't know yet because this is our home, & we value having intimacy & safety for our family.
