The people of Vilacha are all very warm and friendly and are a close-knit community assisting each other in the daily chores of farming. Our youngest villager is only two years old and the oldest is on his way to 90. When it comes to harvest everyone pitches in to help plus some of the neighboring villagers. No one need ever be short of company in this village as it is more like a family living in a very large home than a village with separate houses.
The immediate neighbor of Casa Banderas is Marie Carmen. Marie Carmen is an excellent cook and a gardener par excellence, keeping us supplied with fresh produce. To the left live Juan and Carmen with their son Ovideo and grandson Hugo. They too are dairy farmers and run a 30 strong heard.
