Starting in the spring of 2017, we're joining hands with 4 other families to organise "Simple Living Holidays". While you're on holiday in Matarraña, we open our doors and give you a sneak peek at our daily life - there are guided tours of farms, olive mills and cooperativas; workshops from making cheese to making wine; permaculture and gardening classes and other activities like a medicinal walk, massage or ayurveda consult. And of course can also go out and explore local villages, hike in the national park, cycle the Via Verde or just stay in and relax with a good book.
Individuals (or small groups) will get the chance to book an all inclusive holiday and (during that holiday) participate to a choice of workshops, tours and classes. Groups or families can book a holiday, retreat or even just a weekend or midweek away - and get a tailored program of workshops, tours, classes and other activities during the time of their stay. Or if you're not a fan of the all inclusive thing (or you've already got accommodation elsewhere), you can also just book the workshops.
Simple Living Holidays are open to everybody: whether you want to change your life (like we did) or you just want to take a few tips and tricks back to your busy city life - whether you've got your own permaculture farm and you want to see how others do it or this is the first time you even hear of the term permaculture. When you book, we'll ask you about your wishes and expectations, and of course we'll try and live up to it.
This spring, you will be very welcome to stay at Masia Katmandu. Gina, Cesar and little Rubin have room for up to 12 adults (all bedrooms with en suite bathrooms), and a big room for meditation sessions, yoga classes and more. When you're not attending workshops, you're welcome to join Cesar for meditation in the morning, or tag along with Gina as she's cooking, crafting or working in her garden.
You can also book a Simple Living Holiday and stay either at Mas del Encanto (that's us!), Mas del Pi or Kurkum Farm. More places can be added to this list in the future.
Please check the Simple Living Spain website for information about pricing, dates and more. Or you can just e-mail us of course!
