Delhi Village is a co-housing project, a chance to live in a village atmosphere close to friends. The aim is to create a community that is more environmentally sustainable and with enough freedom to pursue this goal in your own way.

This open day is an opportunity to meet with the group that is developing this exciting green initiative and to view the property to see the potential.
