Last Activity


Help to renovate an old house on the foot of the mountain in the Abruzzi National Park. It is a typical mountain house surrounded by nature. The house has been abandoned for 16 years and we are bringing it back to life.
We are right between Rome and Naples, two hours from both cities but
the best connection is from Rome. Two hours by bus – there are more than 10 buses per day including Sunday and holiday. We offer pickup from the nearby station in Sora, which is 10 minutes’ drive. The nearest village, Campoli Appennino is 6km away and has a grocery store, supermarket, bars and a pizzeria.
Update: The work with the restoration is almost over. We have done a good deal. There is still some to do but now we mostly need help in the garden and in the forest - gardening, chopping firewood, olive picking in November. Also sanding old doors and windows and painting them.

You will be living in the house, volunteers have their own bedroom and we share a bathroom and kitchen. The house is quite big and we have a lot of space available, there is electricity and water. There is a fireplace and lots of firewood. We eat lunch together with my family every day and there is also a well stocked kitchen and cooking facilities available. There are two friendly dogs and a cat, who all live outside the house.

What else ...

From our mountain house you can go hiking in the Abruzzi National Park.
