Benya and his dog Pistacho in front of his home in Abdet, a small village in the Alicante mountains in Spain.
Twenty years ago, Laura’s parents, Anne and Ben, came to Abdet, a small village in the Alicante mountains in Spain. There they began to build a house from the ruins of an abandoned stable, deep in a valley, just below a threatening ridge called ‘The Crag’. They built their home stone by stone, expanding it as the family grew, using rocks that fell from the mountain to construct not only the house, but a corral for animals and ponds to irrigate their land. They live in perfect harmony with their environment, respecting their place in nature and altering the landscape as little as possible.
