About Can Buch

Life has taught me that the most beautiful thing about the path is to share it. Giving and receiving love makes you happy. And seeing others happy is the most beautiful thing there is. Nature and animals, above all.

—   HISTORY OF CAN BUCH
A change of habit, a change of priorities, a change of life

Six years ago and after being immersed for a long time in a hectic personal and working life in the big metropolis, my body made me realize that I had to stop.
Yes. I had stopped listening to it for a long time and had prioritized my ego and my achievements over it.

So it was that one day like any other I left the city. I didn't know why, but I needed air, rest, calm and above all to reconnect with myself.

I went to live in a small cottage in the countryside and it was there that I discovered what a life of love and peace was.
Of course, adapting to a new rhythm and a new life was not easy at first, leaving a "city" life and changing it for a life surrounded only by animals and nature created some contrasts.

But little by little, all these little things that are typical of life in the countryside allowed the creation of a bond and a lifestyle that cured me, that did me good.
And curiously enough, when I returned to the city, I saw that my life had moved away from all that and that those rhythms and ways of doing things no longer resonated with me.

I read a lot: food, agriculture, health, holistic life, nature, geobiology, feng-shui... and I realized all those things that I had ignored and avoided, just because I believed what I saw or received from the "misinformation" media.

I could no longer go back, I had changed my priorities, my vision and, eventually, my life.

This is how the idea of creating CAN BUCH was born.

A paradise of peace, nature and health

I decided to take a piece of woodland with four stones from an old ruined farmhouse with the aim of living surrounded by nature and a healthy, balanced ecosystem.
I wanted to live in the country, quietly. Taking care of the land, people and animals around me.

I had the idea of moving away from consumerism and towards food independence. Yes, I wanted to have a vegetable garden, animals and with them take care of the surroundings of the farmhouse, and a house that was self-sufficient and ecological.
And why not, to share this life with people: "To take care of ourselves and the planet".

This is how the Can Buch project began: an energy self-sufficient ecotourism with a large production of food. A project with the aim of closing the circle and doing things with total respect for life.

We built the cottage in two and a half years with the help of artisans and using natural and ecological materials.
We used the stones we found, clay, ceramics and KM 0 lime to achieve a high quality finishing without using chemical or industrial materials.
A reconstruction based on everything I had read about: feng-shui, geobiology and craftsmanship in the area. A healthy country house.

The summer of 2020 came and it was time to share all this with you, we managed to open Can Buch.

After all this process, today, at 28 years of age, I can say that what makes me happiest is being able to share this paradise of peace, nature and health with the people I love most and who come to spend a few days, a few months or their lives here.
 
In the end, the greatest joy that comes from the country life is to share every day with theanimals and people around you.
To care and to give love every moment.

Thank you, always thank you.

Federico

Discipline and magic (the Chef)

Argentinean.
Yes, one of those who always know how to say things, with the gift of words, music but especially with the gift of cooking.

Disciplined, tireless worker, curious and very tidy. Kind, sympathetic, attentive and very generous.

Passionate about making everything in an artisanal way, in addition to being a real chef he produces his own bread with sourdough, his jams, his wine and his beer.

As a good Argentinean he works with meats and fish with extreme delicacy, but his desire to grow has made him develop plant-based cooking in a surprising way.
Youth and versatility in the same spoon.

— Thank you, Fede, for making Can Buch a better place.

Roots and attention to details (the mother)

One of those always taking care of you, always trying to make you feel comfortable and that everything is as you would like to find it.

Very observant, attentive and concerned with giving you everything you need.
Generous, clean, hardworking and very meticulous.

Lover of nature, quiet life, yoga and above all of cultivating good relationships.
She has always conveyed to us the love of life and people above all else.
She makes cakes you won't be able to resist, traditions are never lost.

Humility and good disposition (the father)

A tireless worker. Yes! Good will, passion and sacrifice in the same person. Early bird, humble and with the ability to adapt to everything that comes.

Always making sure that everything was in order, he designed us little by little an idyllic environment at the cottage, maintaining and taking care of nature so that it was always lush. He loves to keep the woods clean to prevent fires, keep our house warm, and leave the surroundings perfect for us to take the best hikes possible.

Versatility and responsibility (Maitre)

Argentinean.
Yes, with very, very much character. But at the same time sweet, attentive to others and with a smile from ear to ear.

She arrived recently and by chance at Can Buch, but she has become an irreplaceable component. Hard worker, leader, responsible, versatile and with the ability to solve any problem.

She has taught us that in life we must always smile, have a good attitude and keep moving forward no matter how difficult the situation. An example to follow.
