The ethos that drives what we try to achieve at Camp Full Monte is simple.
The simplest expression of this is that we are straightforward folk with no hidden agendas. We’re not perfect but we are comfortable in our own skin. For us, being natural is also about working with nature, not against her. Wherever possible we harness nature’s energy and preserve the earth’s natural resources. Our natural approach extends to eating homegrown, organic food wherever possible.
We are realists and we do what we can with the time, resources and budget that we have. We try and focus on the things we can change rather than wasting time on those we cannot. We are practical people in the sense of getting our hands dirty too! We love the satisfaction that comes from clearing our land, restoring terraces, making things and growing things.
We ditched our high-stress lives in the UK so we could kick the habit of only living for the weekends and holidays. We enjoy what we do and have lots of fun and giggles along the way. We try not to take ourselves too seriously and remember that a smile is a very simple thing that can make a huge difference.
