A Volandera (flywheel) is a leather ring that horse carriages carry on the wheel hub and which, being insignificant, has the function of avoiding friction, and allows things to go smoothly.
This is the little story of the name of La Volandera. (March 8, 2002)
LA VOLANDERA was born as a dream of CREATING a PROJECT, a BEAUTIFUL AND NATURAL SPACE to enjoy the PLEASURE of LIVING IN THE FIELD and SHARE IT with others. For this reason, my parents bought this farm more than 20 years ago, at that time a farm with a fig tree, a lemon tree and a fallen house.
Soon after, in a fluid way, the possibility arose for my father and I to take a course in Permaculture. That course, in addition to meeting very important people in our lives, was the beginning of the entire project. Together we design and plan the basic structure of what is now La Volandera.
Then many hours of dedicated work and care would come, planting and caring for trees, preparing the land, improving the COTTAGE, the facilities … in winter, in summer and start over …. many of them in the company of friends willing to help out.
Little by little, the place was gaining beauty and strength and again in a fluid way, an interest in this space began to be created for workshops and courses.
In 2017, we decided to take another step that would allow us to sustain and enhance everything La Volandera can offer, creating jobs and wealth in rural areas.
Our mission is to offer a QUIET, BEAUTIFUL AND NATURAL SPACE to ENJOY THE COUNTRYSIDE and SHARE IT with others.
Our Vision is to be considered in the long term as a beautiful and natural space of reference for WELL-BEING, CONTACT WITH NATURE AND THE RECOVERY OF THE KNOWLEDGE LINKED TO OUR EARTH both locally and internationally, doing our bit for awareness and sustainability.
Our activity is guided by the principles and values of:
- Beauty and Harmony: The beauty and harmony of spaces is one of our operating principles.
- Service: It is the attitude that allows us to focus the axis of our activity by offering a space for well-being and enjoyment of the field.
- Respect: We always want to base our internal and external relationships on maximum respect for the person, their limits and needs, and with non-violent communication.
- Sustainability: We want our activity to contribute to a change in consciousness for a society in greater harmony with nature.
