I lost my desire to spend time gardening. However, I love eating home-grown vegetables. I’m now grateful for living in a place where I can enjoy it every day.

The person, who bought the land where La Eco Villa is built, chose it for its spring water. No one can buy land above us, which means that nobody can use chemicals in the nature above us, which protects the groundwater.
