We are artisans and nature lovers, we live in rural areas learning and nourishing ourselves from Mother Earth. We have carried out workshops of ancient trades with our copper alembic throughout Spain, distilling medicinal plants to obtain their essential oils. The farm where we will meet is located in the heart of the Sierra de Aitana, surrounded by Mediterranean forest, almond trees and organic olive trees.

Where you'll be

First we will take a walk through the forest that is inside the farm collecting rosemary and then we will distill it to obtain essential oil. We will taste infusions of medicinal plants and we will eat sweet and healthy cakes, while the alembic will give us its sweet perfume. Each participant will take home a vaporizer with rosemary water.

We had the most magical time at Ze's and Nacho's beautiful sanctuary. It was really an experience! We enjoyed the beautiful nature, all the interesting information and the lovely hospitality. We were a group of two couples and a small child traveling in Spain. Not always easy to find something everyone likes. This was without doubt everyone's highlight of our trip. Highly recommended if you are in the area.

Ze and Nacho are lovely warm people, who welcomed us into their unique lifestyle and beautiful home. We arrived as strangers and left as friends. This wonderful experience reinforced our belief that it is human interactions which enrich our lives. If you are in the area, with time to spare, don't miss this opportunity.

I was tempted to be selfish and leave a negative review to dissuade people from coming here..but I couldn't bring myself to do it. Ze and co are awesome and I had such a great time. The location is spectacular. You will struggle to see an area more beautiful in all of Europe. Learning the process of extracting the oils from rosemary is pretty cool. I took my daughter who is 9 years old and she hasn't stopped talking about it. I would totally recommend the experience.

Nous avons adoré ce moment passé avec Cé et Nacho qui nous ont accueilli comme des rois et partagé leur connaissances autour des plantes médicinales, la cosmétique et des produits d’entretien alternatifs. Nous avons également discuté des énergies renouvelables et leurs installations. Les enfants ont adoré notre balade et la piscine naturelle suggérée par Natcho. La collation a été appréciée par tous le monde ! Apparemment le repas sur place est possible, ainsi que la location d’une magnifique maisonnette en bois. Nous avons regretté de n’avoir pas choisi cette option. L’environnement d’une marnière générale est magique loin de l’agitation des stations balnéaires alors que c’est à 20/30 minutes. Selon la page Facebook les séances de yoga sont organisées par Cé, mais cela sera pour une prochaine fois ;-). Merci à toutes la famille !
