Mas Tres Puig is located between the Albera mountains and the Cap de Creus. It is a place where you can interact with nature, through animals, organic vegetable garden and camping. Everybody can enjoy a fantastic stay in the nature with family, lover,  friends... and taste organic and self made products.

Who are we? What do we do?

We are Alex and Marta. In June 2011, Mas Tres Puig project was born. First of all, we restored the house and started to organize the land. Two months later, a fire burnt a part of the land. This event made us realize the importance of keeping the land clean so that it would not happen again. The estate is 15 ha (37 ac) big of which we take good care by restoring abandoned part of the land, building back stone walls and paths, and cleaning the bush, helped by our sheep and donkey who contribute to fire prevention.

We have created several areas:

  • an organic vegetable garden (aprox. 7000m2 / 8 300 yd2)
  • a henhouse including 2 000 m2 / 2 300 yd2 where our hens and chickens can run happily all day long
  • a camping area for groups and families
  • a "paller", which is a community area for classes, workshop, concerts...
  • a water reservoir which collect rain water for crops.

Sheep help us to keep the land clean.

We are a rural recuperation area which, through environmental education and responsible consumption, pretend to teach respect of the land and the environment.

Marta: Ten years ago, I discovered country life style and was soon passionate by organic cultivation. I did courses and work experiences with experimented people. It's a pleasure for me to combine education and farming and to open our land to people in order to share with them what we learn every day.

Àlex: I arrived here four years ago. I've worked many years in the nature but I've discovered this beautiful region only ten years ago during a work experience for an environmental protection project in the Cap de Creus. I've soon got very attracted by the region. Now I struggle to create a living landscape and generate an environmental management project that enhance the territory. Learn and teach: these are my aims.
