Coming to AlmaMundi means going on a simplicity-back to basics façon d'être: outdoor showers, no wifi, camping amongst the olive trees and giving up a few luxury items like hairdryers and electric toothbrushes, as we do not have enough electricity to support them. 

We are completely off-grid which means that electricity comes from our solar panels and water comes from our well. We have a compost toilet which uses sawdust in stead of water.
