L’Hort de L’Alé
L’hort de l’Alé, declared of Community Interest (September 7, 2015) is a project of the Christian-Marc Olmos Vente Foundation based on the promotion of sustainability in its ecological (certified by the CAECV),ethnological (museum of the raisin) and solidary (support for the integration of people with disabilities and social action) facets. It includes among its elements restored buildings of the nineteenth century (Riu-Rau rural house) and one of the few raisin stoves in the province of Alicante, in addition to 40 varieties of fruit trees, predominantly the mandarin tree, and areas of aromatic and wild food herbs.

L’Hort de L’Alé reflects in its name the essence of the Christian-Marc Olmos vente Foundation: “Make life your prayer”.
“L’Alé” in English “the breath”, represents gratitude and respect for the best we have been given: life itself.
The “7 Fables of L’Alé” are based on real experiences of lizards, badgers, birds, bees, trees, insects… that coexist in a harmonious environment. They are written with respect for sustainable nature and with a positive educational philosophy. ( Download pdf )
