Paulina & Bart

Paulina and Bart, passionate about conscious upcycling and founders of the REC.ON brand, left their careers in Warsaw five years ago to start an eco-friendly lifestyle in Spain. They are building an ecological residence and art gallery, creating a community for people struggling with professional burnout and seeking meaning and inspiration in life. The initiative attracts travelers, remote workers (digital nomads) and mobile artists. REC.ON acts as a haven for people enthusiastic about going green in their daily lives, in accordance with the principles of conscious living.

Stay with Us

REC.ON Spain is an artistic and ecological residence with coliving rooms located in the 10-house village of Bolaimi, in the Sierra Maria Los Velez mountains of Andalusia, Spain. Since 2019, the project has been a pioneering example of revitalizing rural living spaces by integrating art, ecology, and respect for cultural heritage. The project includes a residence with rooms, a parking spot for travelers, a workshop studio, and a gallery in restored old and abandoned rural buildings.


The residence offers three individual and comfortable rooms, in a restored part of 100-year-old buildings with WIFI, heating.  Common spaces include a lounge-chillout room, a bathroom, and an exhibition and co-working studio. The residence also has a communal kitchen and dining room where meals are organized. Maximum number of residents at the same time: 6.


Our workshop is equipped with electricity, heating, lighting, and tools (both power and hand tools). We also have a storage area with recycled materials such as metal, wood, and fabrics. Located at the foothills of the mountains and near a seasonal river, we provide access to natural resources used by previous generations.


At the REC.ON residence we have an exhibition space of about 40 m2, on a daily basis it is a coworking and exhibition space, where workshop meetings are held with local artists and artisans, co-partnering with the project.


at the foot of the mountains is the perfect place for travelers, artists on the move, digital nomads and lovers of sustainable nature.
