OUR HISTORY

We started in 2014 as 2 persons, simply gathering together inspired by the same vision of life and by the desire to collaborate making synergies with others to create a better world. We act so to be the change that we wish to see all around us and we invite others to join, share., develop their own ideas for personal and sustainable development and then create their own life project.

We dispose of 18 acres of beautiful land, facing the amazing Caribbean Sea, in an unspoiled location, with optimal weather conditions all year round and a big potential.
