Finca Foyeta

Jijona, Costa Blanca, Spain

If you look into the landscape from Finca Foyeta, you might once again realize how small the person is and how sublime nature is.

Sitting on the terrace or at or in the pool, the view can sweep across rocky terraces with olive trees to the blue Mediterranean. When dawn calls in the valley of the eagle owl and the scops owl and the little owl fly on the hunt. These and rarer animal and plant species still live in this unspoilt area and can be discovered around the house or on guided hikes.

If you want, you can also get a crash course in olive oil production and learn how to recognize quality differences. Or just dream away the hot hours of the day by the pool or in the shade, immerse yourself in a good book or just let your eyes wander over the landscape. What else should such a little person want in the face of such beauty and strength.

You can find the hosts' favourite recipe to try in the kitchen whispers. And we also featured this accommodation in Five places to hike and Five places in radio silence.

ArchitectureThe buildings of the finca consist of stone walls, some of which are over 200 years old, built from what was found around them. Stones, sand, clay or lime. When renovating a few decades ago, a bit of cement was used to stabilize it. The walls, which are up to 60 cm thick, keep cold and heat out and isolate them in a natural way. The windows and doors were partially saved from demolition houses in the area and reused here. Just like many of the partly antique solid wood furniture with which it is furnished. Wood and stone and ceramics are the predominant materials in the construction and furnishing of the finca, plastic and other plastics have been avoided as far as possible. The holiday home is mostly designed open, which means that the view from the lower floor can partially or freely under the ceiling and still there are various cozy retreat corners on the approximately 100 square meters and the large terrace.

FoodHundreds of different trees grow in the countryside around the finca. The fruits and the organic olive oil of the finca as well as vegetables and herbal teas from the in-house organic garden can be purchased depending on the season.

EnvironmentFirst of all: there are no electricity or other lines leading to the finca and no masts nearby. There is no WiFi either. But cellular waves are arriving. And there is electricity too. Enough. From wind and solar energy itself, there is always more than enough kilowatts. The electrolysis system is then operated, among other things, which cleans the slightly salty pool, which is therefore almost chlorine-free and is great for the skin. In general, the entire house is an eco-house that is operated as resource-efficiently as possible. So that the finca-owned three-chamber sewage treatment system plus a veritable reed bed treatment plant are not overwhelmed, no caustic liquids or other chemicals may be poured into the drains. Neither does large waste from the kitchen or bathroom. Even the used toilet paper is thrown in the waste bin, not in the toilet. Consequently, smoking is absolutely prohibited in the house. By the way, just like the use of mosquito repellent for the socket and all other non-ecological insecticides, the vapors of which accumulate in mattresses and fabrics. As a result, due to the ants, care must be taken to ensure cleanliness with leftovers and crumbs. A house in the south and in the middle of the country ... It is recommended to bring biological mosquito repellent and appropriate medication yourself! The garbage is collected separately in the company&
