Live a simple lifestyle in a Yoga & Permaculture community in Spain

Yoga and Permaculture Community in Spain – Hello, I am a 29-year-old boy who is living something like a long retreat NGO project – Permaculture and yoga is the essence of the community I try to develop here. With no WIFI and out of the grid you can get rid of your flaws and fears. Nevertheless, there is mobile coverage and shops are 5min by car.

A little information about me and the place

My name is Rafa and the place is located in Cullera. Exactly among the mountain and a pound which belongs to the Albufera Natural Park. The cottage was bought by my grandfather in 1954 approx. 4730m2 of land. The part of the house for a living has been rebuilt but the part for animals is under progress. There is no electricity but there is tap water (running water) and a water well for agriculture. I do study yoga so I practice yoga and meditation every day for a few hours. You can reach the beach in 20min by walk.
