We are Juanma and Mariajo, a couple with a passion for nature and the dream of showing the world that a wonderful experience can be 100% sustainable. After one year exploring many miles, we came across the perfect place in-between the Mediterranean Sea and the mountains of Castellon.
Having gathered €6000 from savings and family loans, we decided to get started on our project. The rest came as if by magic with small miracles, microcredits, ethical banks, a thousand adventures and, most of all, the people who have made each and every corner of Mar de Fulles what it is today. The fact that you are reading these words means so much to us, and we want to tell you the rest of the story face to face because this adventure has only just begun.
Mar de Fulles means Sea of Leaves, and today it symbolises the peace and quiet emanating from this woodland setting. We would love to share that with you and your loved ones.
Mar de Fulles is made of limestone, wood and honeycomb clay – We are the first fully self-sufficient hotel in Europe. When we started, we planted 40,000 cork oak trees to make up for the CO2 emitted during construction. On top of that, the pathways branching out into our surroundings took a year and a half to lay using a pickaxe and no mechanical machinery, and the building blends completely into the mountainside. Come and see for yourself!
Mar de Fulles runs exclusively on solar power, low-energy lighting and a closed water circuit with our own well and green filtering system.
We grow seasonal produce for our restaurant, farming local varieties without using chemicals. We would love to show you!
