Hi. Does anybody know beautiful and 'cheap' places around the Mediterranean?
And of course places where one can buy much organic fruit ;)
Hi Sandra... you could try Orgiva in Andalucia, Spain, there's a decent raw food community there, it's pretty cheap and it has a good organic fruit store called 'Eco Loco Todo Bio' where they get lots of nice organic fruit. There's even a free and open community called 'Beneficio' where you can live on the land for free, take a tent or buy a yurt etc. when you get there... The town is set in the beautiful Alpujarras, which are on the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountain range, it's quite a special area, at this time of year you are 35mins from the Mediterranean and also an hour from the ski slopes too!!
Thank you Adam! I already looked it up on google maps. ;) Seems to be a very nice place!
this is a place I'm thinking about going to visit, with a view to living there in future. If there's a decent raw community there, that's my ticket! Do you know if there are many English speakers there? I would love to go to their fruit festival but it clashes with my daughter's birthday and I can't leave her
Hi Nichola... there's plenty of English spoken in Orgiva itself - too much some say! - but in the Beneficio community, English is more of a common language as people come from many different places to live there... either way, you'll not need much Spanish to get by there... any other questions please feel free to ask...
Aim for Andalusia, Spain! And check out the Raw Fruit Festival at the same time ;-)
