Properties might suit Communities

This noticeboard is intended for notices about properties that might be suitable for communal living. Perhaps some kind of community was resident there in the past or you're an existing group who all want to leave at the same time, thereby vacating a property.
If you're wanting to place a message or reply to one that's already posted then you must either register or sign in. We restrict noticeboard messages to one per person at any time and your message is part of your profile (click "Your account" then the Edit tab). We reserve the right to move the message to another category if it seems more appropriate.

Light and Love.

EL POCITO is for sale!

Hi, hope this okay to post here. It might be of some interest/ help to anyone who is currently considering a change in their life, particularly if it is to a more simple and natural way, one where they would like to be living more in tune with and also surrounded by nature. By way of introduction, I am originally from London (Sydenham/ Dulwich), but my heart has always been in the countryside, to live somewhere truly remote where the scenery is as natural and dramatic as possible. And bit by bit, over many years, this is what I have worked at. The last sixteen years spent exploring the wilder parts of Iberia & Canada for an ideal spot. First living/ searching in a converted van, then a succession of “tiny” and very basic shelters, until now I have a basic but very cosy permanent home. Whilst also learning the skills necessary to survive, along with losing my fear and reliance on having to earn money. The last eight years it’s been totally off-grid/ vegan/ planting a herbal forest garden/ learning about alternative medicine/ foraging/ and growing organically. I’ve managed to live the last three years (since my wife sadly died) on earnings of less than 750 euros (a year). A full description of this transformation can be found on my site: Finally, I now have a new partner and we have decided to move on, start afresh, so if it is okay with the Administrator (please edit this as you feel necessary), I would like to include here some brief details of the home/ land in case anyone is interested or could SHARE this wider afield. Meanwhile adding that we heartily support your work and wish the best for the future. Phil. EL POCITO Is a forest garden started in 2009, set in its own totally private six acres (2.5 hectares), amid 182,000 hectares of dramatic hillside, in the idyllic/ unspoilt and lush countryside of the Sierra de Aracena y Picos de Aroche Natural Park, Andalucia (SW Andalucia, Spain). At an altitude of 600 metres above sea-level with panoramic views of up to 60km distance. Would suit a couple or small eco-community (max 6 people), who want to live surrounded by nature, work on continuing the development of the site, and spreading the word of self-sufficiency/ sustainability (by example). Contains hundreds of trees, many with an edible/ medicinal value. Including the potential for olive oil production (there are at least 100 trees), creating a vineyard (producing up to 3000+ bottles a year), and incense/ perfume/ charcoal (from the vast amount of cistus ladanifer that is native here). Includes a totally off-grid stone house (42m2, solar power + pure water supply), ready to move into. All just 15 minutes away (2km/ 1.2 miles) by forestry track from the ancient/ moorish village of Almonaster la Real (pop 800), a beautifully preserved whitewashed local centre (with all the facilities). While only 120kms (72 miles) away is the amazing city of Sevilla. 140kms (84 miles) the beach. 45kms (27 miles) border with Portugal (Alentejo). Full details on the various pages of the official site: Extra photos on Facebook: For price and answers to any further questions, please email me: Bear in mind I do not have internet connection (by choice), so be patient for the reply.

Palenke is a 56 hectare farm nestled between the forest and the river Negro in Southern Colombia. The farm is situated near to the famous archaeological town of San Agustin in the mountain region of Huila. The site has lots of potential to be developed as a Community/ Retreat Centre/ Permaculture Project. Currently we are a very small family here - mother and 2 sons: 6&20 year old). We are looking to welcome others to bring the farm back to life; investors to bring funding, volunteers and other members- ideas welcomed. If you are interested in this unique opportunity then please get in touch with me for more details. Palenke- The mountain- is a site of ecological interest with many different birds and animals, including eagles and monkeys in the surrounding forests. Our goal is to protect our land from deforestation and preserve and restore the natural habitat for animals and future generations to come. The farm has its own water supply from mountain springs, electricity from the grid and its own bio- waste system (which is functioning but need’s maintenance and up-grading). The land is situated in a very rural location and can be accessed by a chiva bus (local bus) which runs from San Agustin once a week on Mondays. Once at the bus stop, pack horses are used to carry equipment, luggage and food etc to the farm. A mountain path is then walked or ridden by horse, if necessary, from the bus stop. Walking distance is about 1 and half hours to the farm. The mountain path can be very uneven and steep at times, so people will need to be adventurous and physically fit. Palenke provides time and space to disconnect from urban modern lifestyle, being far away from a road, only the sounds of nature can be heard. The farm reconnects people back to nature and all the elements. Fluent spoken Spanish or conversational will be necessary as I do not speak English. There is no internet at the farm - I will be in town once a week to check emails- so please be patient with a responce! Please email me with any queries or if you would like to come and join us. We look forward to hearing from you! email:
