We are four in our family. Nora is 10 years old, Livio who is 9, my wife Verena and I (Mario). We decided to move from Switzerland 10 years ago to raise our family in a different lifestyle connecting with nature.
When we arrived here we had to rebuild the roof and rehabilitate the chambers of this old country house by ourselves with some help from our friends and relatives.
Nowadays, we rule a small ecofarm with 5 goats, 4 sheep, 2 donkeys, 2 horses, our dog Zibo, 4 cats and a small army of rabbits and chickens. All the work is done without heavy machinery. We have plenty of space, two of our apartments here are meant for agroturism and usually we have some other hosts at our table. Specially during summer.
It doesn't matter to us if you are a singleperson or a hole family.
If you are a nature lover, looking for a quiet place and willing to work, you are welcome!!
