Area: Abruzzi National ParkThis Bed & Breakfast was only founded in 2010, it is a work in progress. We have hosted many guests but there is still a lot of work to do. The place is located in a small village in the italian countryside. Many of the houses next to it are abandoned. The B & B consists of several rooms in different buildings that belong together. So far I am the only person that steadily lives here but many people come to help or visit from the closeby farmstay. Because this place is part of a group of places that collaborate with each other.All three places host volunteers and we often help each other or do stuff together in our free time. You can visit the farmstay to meet interesting people from all over the world. There is also a second farm, that belongs to the farmstay and is worth a visit. It is very rustic, there is no electricity or hot water, still people live there and enjoy a humble life far away from modern world luxury.

Area: Pays de la LoireWe are an English and French couple living in 10 hectares (25acres) of unspoilt natural countryside. Our property is a protected site for birds and butterflies. Our lakes and woodland support a wide range of wildlife and we aim to upkeep this natural balance. The largest lake is one hectare (about 2.5 acres) and has been used as a fishing lake and a swimming lake. Our farmhouse is partially renovated (roof, 2 bedrooms and bathroom upstairs finished), although there is plenty left to do. We use a maximum of ecological materials (lime, hemp, straw, wood etc) and are aiming to complete further rooms downstairs this spring. We constantly maintain the grounds and organic vegetable garden. There are trees blown down in the storms to cut up, outlets to the lakes to survey, brambles to cut back, grass to cut, and of course chickens to feed and eggs to collect. Alongside our daily work we have other projects, such as renovating a lakeside observatory and building a floating island for our wild visiting ducks, building hedgehog shelters, and many more.
