Nature spaces

Living spaces embedded in nature...

Embedded in this natural paradise we created many small artistic spaces. They provide privacy to its inhabitants and they inspire individuality with their unique character. Everything in the valley is in proximity. The place offers many hidden corners and places, each one with a different ambience. The group as well as each participant can freely oscillate between community and private time.

The valley

Our fertile valley feels like a home in the lap of Mother Nature, with the firmament of stars as a roof. Protected from the wind, the heat and intrusions it is a place for a group of people to find comfort. A space where connection between people and with nature can happen easily.

Mondtempel

An earthy space for feminine strength and healing

This half-cave helps to connect with the earth and with the sacred feminine.
The moon temple is open for women-retreats, women-circles, masssages and singing-circles. Men are welcomed when they are invited by a woman. It also gives space for sacred contact between men and women and sacred sexual rituals.

This half cave already existed befor: it was a place to burn Lime-Stone. Since autumn 2014 it is enlivened by different groups of women. With the support of men we built a roof for it.

People writing about their Sensaciones

How a house makes us feel

Hidden in a steep-sided valley just south of Yátor in the Alpujarras, Spain, el valle de sensaciones is a marvel of art, invention and gorgeous eco-buildings.

Something beyond place

Where to sleep tonight? A tree house that moves gently with the breeze? A cave burrowed into a cliff? A geodesic dome? A suite built from clay, straw and found wood, with a floor of river boulders? A bed in the open air in a bamboo forest? A tepee? Those are just some of the choices.
