What is included in the price?

You will have a weekly cleaning, clean sheets and you will be able to use all your private and common spaces. Towels are not included for hygiene reasons, as guests usually take them to the beach. You can bring your own towels or buy them from the user at the supermarket where they have all sorts of useful things besides food. In addition, you are part of the community, which means that you benefit from a discount

What activities, excursions and workshops do you offer?

  • Windbreaker jacket (or buy here)
  • Neoprene 2/3 for summer and 3/4 for winter
  • Surf shoes for in the winter

Why are the houses called ecological houses?

The houses are off the grid, which means they have solar panels and the water comes from the well. The quality of the water is quite good but not drinkable. To drink water we organize weekly excursions on Sundays to La Muela, which is a small village on top of a hill that has spectacular views, a small waterfall and a place to get fresh drinking water. The water from this fountain is of very high quality and we will give it away to our guests. You are welcome to join us any Sunday at La Muela which we can highly recommend as we will also stop at a local tapas bar there (there are 2 opposite each other) where they have very high quality tapas, large portions and forums. . Very low price, so take advantage of it. There are also some hiking trails around there and if we have time we can also do a little hike.

Are there any special housekeeping rules?

Because we are not connected to the electrical system or sewage, you should know that we cannot use energy-intensive electrical equipment when there is no sun. So at night we can’t use the washing machine and we have low voltage hair dryers. But the most important thing is that we can’t throw toilet paper as it will block the toilet and create inconvenience for others as the toilets are shared. We will let everyone know if we talk to them before they check in and there will be warning signs in the restrooms telling everyone to put their papers in the bin to make sure everyone follows this rule. If a toilet gets clogged we expect the guest to fix it and if this is not possible we deduct the cost, which is approximately €50, from your deposit to resolve the issue.

What to know about the pool?

The pool area is a fun area where we meet, where you can work in the coworking area there, make friends, network, join the barbecue, swim, play volleyball in the pool if it doesn’t disturb other people (noise or water when people are working in the coworking space). To keep the pool clean, we ask everyone to first shower in the poolside shower before jumping in. Drinks and food are not allowed in the pool for hygiene reasons.

Will I have enough privacy?

If you have your own room you will definitely have a private space and only one room in the house to share with someone else. The objective of Co living is to share experiences but also to be comfortable in the space. For longer stays it will be more comfortable to have your own room unless you are staying with your partner in the room. We have private room options in the main location as well as closer to the beach and approximately 1 km from the main location.

Are the activities mandatory?

The activities will be proposed to you and you can choose to participate or not. We also ask you what kind of activities you would like to have to see if we have enough enthusiasm for it. Some activities will take place in the common space of the two houses where the pool is located. These can be activities such as barbecue, yoga and, for example, a spontaneous game of volleyball in the pool. If you don’t want to or can’t participate you will still have the garden, the terrace, the living room and your own room to enjoy. We also have a piece of land next to the common space where the pool is where we will try to create an ecological garden and we can do eco-gardening and bio-construction workshops.

Can I bring my pets?

Unfortunately, pets are not allowed because some guests do not like or are allergic to pets. And you also have to conserve the space well since pets can damage objects such as the sofa and the bed where they can leave their hair. They can also make noise and disturb people a bit when they work.

Is there a selection process?

We would like to have a conversation with you to see if you fit the concept. And to see if you and the others at Ecolivers feel comfortable in our place and with each other. Our goal is to unite inspiring, positive and friendly people who want to have a positive impact on the world and their direct environment. Especially people who have knowledge to share with others to form bonds and collaborations on the spot are people who will be high-potential Ecolivers. You can schedule a meeting with us here!
