About Us

To know us, a little story





Stéphane and Claire are happy to see you here. They live together, with their two sons in Andalusia, and started the project Fit-in-Nature to share with you their passion for outdoor sports, Nature, and the best nutrition.
They both received a scientific education, and both hold PhDs, Stéphane in physics and acoustics, and Claire in material science. They also graduated from the Ecole Supérieure de Physique et Chimie Industrielle in Paris.
Stéphane is also an avid mountain biker, riding bikes since he can remember, and a cross country runner. He is always ready to go out on a new adventure!
Claire is an accomplished athlete, with several participations in French national championships, both in track and field heptathlon and cross country running.
They always enjoyed organizing sport events and weeks, for their friends at the beginning, and then for the
Raw Fruit Festival. With Fit in Nature, they hope they will be able to share with more people and keep living according to their ethics.
Stéphane and Claire have been eating a raw fruit based diet since 2004, while they were living in California, working in research at the University of California, San Diego. But they decided to quit their positions for ethical reasons, and to start a new life on a farm in Andalusia, Spain, for freedom and to live closer to nature and their ethics.
Since, they have been working on their farm, planting trees, a garden, restoring old houses, and building new eco-houses, and gave birth to their two sons Moya and Djao.
The farm is managed following permaculture principles, with water conservation and storage systems, erosion control, cover cropping, wild herbs and plants preparation for fertilizing and pest controls etc.
They built their home themselves. A natural building consisting of a timberframe (with local wood), strawbales, and earth and clay plasters. Of course, the energy for the house is solar, since the house is totally off grid. Stéphane also designs and installs solar systems for people in the area.
Even if their timetable is pretty full with the farm, two young kids, they still manage to find the time to train on a regular basis, mainly for running, mountain biking, swimming. If you want to live the 100% raw fruit and fitness lifestyle while learning about permaculture and organic farming, directly at the farm, well, you are at the right place!
Every year in September, they also organize the Raw Fruit Festival in the Genal Valley of Andalusia, and hope to see you there next year!
