Ecoaldea de Valdepiélagos

The project started in 1993, after a long period of consolidation of the group and design of the space, towards 2002 the works began, the houses were delivered in 2008. The process has been fully participatory in all the design stages, leaving the construction in the hands of professionals.

We are located on Valdepiélagos, bordering the urban area of the town, this way we have a certain independence and at the same time we enjoy all the services of the town and the rural environment of a small town of 400 inhabitants.

We have built 30 houses of two floors and basement, with land of 750 square meters, where we have our gardens. The heating works with solar panels through underfloor heating with the support of a gas boiler. The houses have been made in bioconstruction with bioclimatic design. They have a gray water circuit.

We have a community tank for the storage of 150 cubic meters of rainwater for irrigation of the fruit trees in the common area.

All decisions are made by simple majority in the periodic meetings of the Cooperative. Our organizational structure is participatory and horizontal, most of the partners have passed through the Governing Council and the Cooperative.

Among us there are musicians, actors, actresses, professors, biologists, dentist, computer, commercial, retired and several of children.

We carry out common meals once a month, a day in which we give news and sometimes do theater, concerts, reading poetry, etc.
