What is Casita Mandala?
La Casita Mandala is a small ecological house on the Camino Primitivo de Santiago. We offer breakfast, diner and accomodation « a Donativo » for pilgrims passing by and looking for a special experience.
The idea is to share with them an other way of living, more simple and sostenible.
All the project have been built using Permaculture principles and ethics. As a Permaculture Teacher (From Université Populaire de Permaculture, France) we developped a sostenible Design.
We used Natural materials : Straw, earth, lime, stone, wood, etc… and a lot of recycle materials (old doors, windows, tiles, etc).
Why we are selling the project?
After 5 years the project is receiving its first pilgrims and most of the design is implemented. So why we’re selling it?
Our love of sharing Permaculture and natural building is taking over and we want to open a bigger place to organize Permaculture Design Courses and Natural building workshop. La Casita Mandala is a bit small and limited for that.
So we’re selling the place, with sadness, but we know that someone would be happy to keep along with it.
To Who we’re seeling it?
Because we did everything by ourself, transforming this old ruin into a beautilful project, putting all our hearts into it, we can’t sell it to anybody.
We definitely want to find the right person to keep going with the project. It has to be someone who share our values and way of doing things, excited about a dry composting toilet (a very efficient one) instead of beeing disgusted.
It has to be somone who value natural building and working with nature in the garden.
We know that this person exists and would appear eventually.
