About Us

A modest proposal

It’s a place, a house, a farm, a home. (The name means ‘the little shack’.) And its caretakers are Nacho Trives (agronomist) and Paul Richardson (journalist and author).

This six-hectare estate in the mountains of Sierra de Gata, Extremadura (Spain), is the site of our long-term project: a committed experiment in off-grid living for pleasure, recreation and quality of life.

www.chabolino.com is our modest proposal – a visual document of life and landscape at Finca el Chabolino.
