Hello

Me and my girlfriend , both in our mid 30s, would like to create a food forest in Spain.

We have been looking the market and realized that finding a a land on which one can build a house, is not easy, due to the policies in Spain.

Do you have any suggestion on finding a land (at least 10.000 m2 and maybe also with a house that we can renovate) possibly in areas where there is a permaculture community?

Thank you so much

Leo

Depends on how you define "build a house".

There is a lot possible without a building permit for a residence, without concrete foundations, or registered as an agricultural building.

As far as I know, registering your paper fiction on the land might take a "certificate of habitability of the house" otherwise they might deem it "unfit for living" and might "have to" provide you with alternative housing in a "suitable location", ie on concrete.

I would definitely opt out of grid electric

Some options near Semilla Besada, Lanjaron with water from the acequia

I've heard from a couple different European families wanting to homestead in Spain who ultimately bought land in Portugal instead because it's much cheaper and easier. Not sure if that's an alternative that you could consider.
