Initially an home that was supposed to be lost as a consequence of a family divorce, Allan decided to rebuy it and bet on his dream of an Home open to the world where creativity can be unleashed and individualidy reduced. March 2017 Spores was born.
The home is at the dawn of the mountains with dozens of kms of seas by 10 min walking. There is also good hills to practice hiking or road cycling. There is 12 people capacity, from family rooms to hammocks. In the core of a traditional spanish village. 30 minutes from Valencia by train.
This Spores Homes is on Stage 4 : Advanced. It means that the creativity challenged is orientated around design, functionalities and self learning set ups.
My only sorrow is having stayed just a couple of days here. Living there is total enjoyable, come on! A place self-sustained by the own guests, what for a new experience for every traveller / wander/ curious visitor. For sure if i come up by there, i'll visit you again
It’s amazing how at home we feel here, not only with the house itself but also with everyone we meet here. Everyone is so interesting! I loved meeting everyone even if it was for one day they managed to leave something with me and gain a place of their on in my heart. This experience is a must!
Finally it’s a time to write a reference to such a wonderful place! Home, sweet Spores Homes!=) We were lucky to know about this house from our host on Couchsurfing. And actually we didn’t have much time so decided to visit Spores Homes for 1 day and just take a look at the place. No way!!! We spent there 1 week and even that time wasn’t enough to catch a glimpse of all the letters|postcards|pictures|art pieces all around the house!)) The place just breath art and creativity. And that is only a part of Spores Homes. Second, and the main are PEOPLE who make the atmosphere of it. We were amazed and so happy to meet such a beautiful souls there! Open hearted, thoughtful, helpful and at the same time such a different people so you can always learn something new from them. We do appreciate the IDEA of Spores Homes as an experience of community being. It’s a perfect place for working, writting or reading books, doing arts, sports and practice your consciousnesses in daily life with respect to every person at Home. It’s actually very difficult to express in words all the feelings we have after visiting Spores Homes. But one thing I could say for sure: at the moment, after 2,5 month of travelling in different countries, Spores Homes was the most special and memorable experience we had! Wish long life to this place and thanks to all and EACH of beloved people we have met there! Stay happy!=)
Spores is a place in which serendipity, creativity, expression, and understanding occurs. It is a place where inspiration and generosity flows freely. The Spores home came into my life at a very pivotal time... I was feeling stuck, lost, and confused about my next step. As soon as I got to Spores I felt lighter and inspired with the steps I needed to take to continue moving forward. If it weren’t for Spores, I’m really not sure where I would be right now. I met some incredible people whom I still talk to today and I learned some very valuable life lessons. If Spores is an option for you, I strongly suggest you make it a top priority and be open to what magic unfolds.
The Spore's home at Cullera is an amazing place. It's a home that fosters ideas and creativity. People's strengths and positive characteristics are used to create and enhance a communal space. I can't wait to return to Spores Cullera, but also to make new memories in the future Spores homes.
It is not just a free house in amazing location. It's a project that looks into the future. Future where our values are not based on money or possessions. The project will help us see the growth of the act of goodness. I wish I had more money and time to contribute to this. Hopefully one day I can repay the kindness in equal scale.
Incredible!! :) Spores became for me a second home while living in Valencia - a place of sharing and inspiration. A place to meet amazing people, to laugh and to live! Still making me smile, thinking about this incredible place! Thanks!
Spores is such a magical place for people from all over the world to share their stories, emotions and their happiness :) We spend a wonderful week at Spores and can just recommend it to everyone! What I love about this place is that you can just be yourself and at the same time exchange experiences and different ways of living with others! Thank you for everything :-)
I just spent two days in La Cullera and the weather wasn’t very nice but nevertheless I had a great time ! :) everyone was very nice and helpful, we cooked together and afterwards made the dishes together and the house is just amazing ! Whenever I have time I’d love to come back ! Thank you so much :)
I think I can describe Spores with only two words...good vibes!!!!
My time at spores was beyond wonderful. It was the best experience of my solo trip around Europe, i met beautiful people, fell in love with the streets, mountains and the amazing beach of the town. But the house is just magic... every corner has something to offer and we all have something to enhance the energy of the house. I left the house with a happy heart full of beatiful moments and im grateful because i met fantastic people. I bless Spores and its beautiful energy. Thank you today and forever for letting me being part of this family. Spread love, spread spores!!!
I feel impressed by the revolutionary concept of SporesHomes. The place gave me the feeling of home which I was looking for my whole life. I loved the vibes of optimism, open-mindness and the travellers' way of thinking. And the people, oh my God. One day, you are stangers, the Next day you have those deep talks until you fall asleep exhausted of connecting to other Spores. Really hard to explain this extraordinary experience, and I'm blessed to have the chance to become one #Spore in this world. 🌐💙
I visited Cullera with my boyfriend a couple days ago. It was our first stop on our trip round Spain and it could not have been better. The place has a magical energy and the people we met there were amazing. We slept on the roof and hand one of the most beautiful views I have ever seen. I honestly would have never imagined that you can fall in love with a place so quickly, I would have never imagined that in four days you can make such wonderful friendships and I would have never imagined that it is so hard to leave. I will certainly come back one day!
Wow! What can I Say about Spores? Found Allan in Couchsurfing was something that had to happen to me. At the beginning I didn’t know where I was going and what exactly was Spores Homes. I decided to discover it and the experience was one of the best things of my life. I met people from another parts of the world and the energy in the house was amazing, we were like a family, talking about our wishes, sharing meals together, making creative activities, giving us contention. I’m so happy to have had the opportunity to have lived something new and beautiful. I couldn’t meet Allan but we were always connected by WhatsApp and he showed interest in everything that we asked or needed. I want to thank Allan for creating Spores, a home for all, a place full of love, a School of life. I’ll definitely come back some day to continue learning and shearing. :) “Home is where the heart is”.
Spores is an amazing place. Its kind of an human experiment how everybody behave in that kind of special house.I'm glad to meet so many nice openminded people. They inspired me and got me some Energy back I lost when I arrived in Spain. Thank you Allan and all the great People who stayed there. I hope there will be more Spores Homes in the future and maybe I try to build one. Take Care! Melina
Very cool space - lots of people coming and going, not a lot of structure, more just jump in and help wherever/whenever you can - awesome community feel and good people
Had an amazing stay here! Thank you so much Allan :)
We just had an amazing weekend and already want to repeat! Best people around, sport challenges and sun ! See you soon Spores :)
Spores House is a place that will forever remain in your heart. Here people from all over the world meet together, this is a very unique atmosphere. You can meet incredible people.

Wanting to support and help in any way what this project has magically become in to All love Liam
A great place in a small town surrounded by mountains, with all you need for outdoor sports. It even has 2 bikes if you want to explore. I loved the inspirational messages written on every walls. A very awesome project !
I am so thankful to Allen and his hospitality and for his visionary idea for opening Spores home as co-living and co-working concept for people of open mind and open heart coming worldwide. Spores home in Cullera has a great energy of all members of the tribe :) For me it was really special life experience to feel like a member of an urban tribe. The time I have spent here was amazing, refreshing and gave me some new perspectives in my life. I have a need to share my positive experience with my friends and get it back to Cullera and Spores home :)
Spores was an experience of its own. I am impressed by the idea and the way people live together and collaborate together. I will be back for sure!
I was surprised by Spores Homes concept, I met wonderful people there, learnt from their challenges, I got inspired by bikers and did my first biking challenge already. Beside all it’s a memorable sharing experience that I won’t forget.
Such a wonderful space! I only stayed for three nights, I hope to stay longer next time to really soak in the experience. I learned so much about my water use and overall environmental impact when I was there. The signs around the home are super helpful. The energy in the home was inspiring, the art around you and knowing how many people contributed to the space was so beautiful. Thank you all again! I hope to be back soon, or maybe you can start one in the states? (More than happy to help out) Really encourage solo travelers to come, or travelers who are open and want to connect with others💙
