The yurt is situated on a hectare of organically managed smallholding. It is a family run business and local people and we do all the work. Yurts were originally the movable homes of Mongolian nomads but are very stable and ours stands on a strong, safe wooden platform.
We have organic fruit gardens and trees, a vegetable garden with raised beds worked with permaculture in mind. We have vines, olives and figs in the Moorish tradition and have restored this abandoned plot of land in the local tradition.
We manage woodland with local hardwoods such as chestnut, cork oak and oaks. Local people have restored the house we live in, in the local slate tradition. Much of the food we offer is home grown, most other provisions are bought locally and we employ local people whenever possible. We provide full information about all local services and about how to visit local historical or natural sites of interest, or experience local events or traditional activities. We have extensive information about local restaurants, food specialties, cafes and local events and activities.
Our power is solar power only, our water comes from our own spring. All our grey water is recycled and filtered. The yurt bathroom has an ecological loo. All our practices promote and encourage environmentally friendly and low impact behavior and habits. We hope to put visitors in touch with local tradition whilst enjoying and respecting the natural environment.
You can trust responsibletravel.com reviews because, unlike many other schemes, reviews can ONLY be written by people who we have verified have been on the holidays. In addition, we don't run these holidays ourselves - our only interest is giving you the best independent advice.
