Eco Produce: Small scale or large scale?
In the heart of the Andalusian countryside, where nature’s embrace intertwines with the elegance of estate living, lies a tranquil way of life that captivates the soul. There is something truly unique about the country properties of Gaucin, Malaga. They offer a singular opportunity to immerse oneself in the splendour of nature while indulging in the rewards of small-scale produce and the countless benefits of eco-living. Can you picture yourself putting on your flip-flops to gather ripe lemons from your lemon tree? Or picking some deliciously sweet cherry tomatoes for your summer salad? Nothing compares to this kind of Andalusian rural luxury.
At the core of the country estate lifestyle, you will find that it is rare not to cultivate your own produce. It can be done on a small-scale, as previously mentioned. With ease, you can ask your gardener for help to create the perfect vegetable patch. Next, a quick trip to the local vivero, and you can fill your car with seedlings of all kinds. Think big and think varied! You can grow the classic Mediterranean vegetables, like lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, aubergines, courgette, etc. But don’t forget about the essentials: garlic and onion. Lastly, but definitely not least, make sure to fill your car with some fresh herbs. Basil, parsley, mint, thyme, rosemary and oregano are a must!
The land in Andalusia is fertile and rich. What this means is that the Andalusian soil becomes a perfect canvas for growing an array of fruit trees! Yes! think about citrus trees, almond or walnut trees, olive trees, oak trees… The options are endless. And guess what? Andalusia too is a fantastic place to cultivate your very own vineyard. Is it too much to ask? A luxury country estate lifestyle with self-made wine?
Eco-solutions for your estate lifestyle
Beyond the tangible rewards of fresh produce, eco-living becomes a guiding principle in estate life. More and more of our clients highlight the importance of an eco lifestyle. Today, environmentally friendly practices like rainwater harvesting, composting, generating own energy from wind or solar and even having a private water well or deposit have become important and purchase-deciding factors. By treading lightly on the land, estate dwellers reduce their ecological footprint and contribute to the preservation of the natural beauty that envelops them.
Living an eco-conscious lifestyle transcends the boundaries of the estate itself; it is a ripple effect that extends to the wider community. By sharing knowledge and collaborating with neighbouring properties, a network of sustainable living emerges. Furthermore, one cannot and must not overlook the undeniable health benefits of eco-living. Here are some of the benefits that contribute to your mental and physical well-being:
- Fresh air
- Organic produce
- Slower pace of life
