We are an association handling an isolated group of houses, a small village that was abandoned. We are restoring the houses. We are naturopaths and are working as a health center, helping people to re-establish a difficult health situation.
We provide our guests with a health program, vegetarian food, massage, healthy activities and conferences. Our group is composed by at least 4 people. We work with guests from mid april to 30th october, and from 23rd december to 11th January. During the rest of the winter we are only one or two people, working as carpenters, builders, farmers... and taking care of our animals (chicken, dogs, cats and donkey). The busiest months are usually June and September.
This year, OUR SEASONAL ACTIVITY starts on 25th April and FINISHES ON 20TH OCTOBER.

Our place is like a little isolated village, any kind of work is needed and useful. As we are also like a small clinic, any skill in alternative therapies (massage, reflexology, coaching,...) is welcome.
Travellers will improve the italian language, meet interesting people and therapists, learn about health, food and therapies, as well as possibly receive some relaxing treatments.
Right now (May 2016) we have urgent need for people able to do any kind of practical and technical maintenance works (building, chopping wood, growing vegetables, etc....)
italian, english, french, spanish, dutch, esperanto, german
The worker has to be flexible: the accomodation can vary from a room to a place in a camper or in a dormitory, according to the availability of the moment.
Note that we are far away (4,5 km by foot or 7,5 km by car) from the closest city (the very small Badia Tedalda). Our location is excellent for landscape, walking or cycling and absolutely not for ;. It is never too warm as we are at 860m altitude.
The public transportation is quite insufficient in our area.
Smoking is allowed only out of the buildings.
The workawayworkers can practice and learn many different types of works, they can practice italian and take vantage of the marvelous and wild nature. When we have our "health guests", they will meet many interesting people and become acquainted with alternative therapies. Surely they will learn vegetarian cooking.
We are on the extreme east of Tuscany at the crossing of different regions: Emilia-Romagna, Umbria and Marche; therefore an "independently motorized worker" can reach easily the Rimini beaches or the cities of SanMarino, Arezzo, Assisi, Urbino,...
From the 22nd April to 20th October as well as from 20th Decembder to 12th January of each year, we are "open for public". The presence of workawayers with skills in therapies or entertainment (music, theatre, cooking,...) is welcome, possibly with a basic knowledge of Italian; in exchange we can provide some healthcare. We need to rebuild some stone and bricks walls, we need to cut the wood for the next winter, we need to prepare the ground for our vegetables; experience is highly appreciated. Volunteers with skills in therapies can participate in our healing programs.
We are operating till end of October. September is usually a very busy month.
During the whole period, we could also need to translate health books into English or other languages and for such task a true and good knowledge of your original language and a basic knowledge of Italian is needed.
