  • Description


    I'm based in the Netherlands at the moment. But bought a small olive grove and orchard in Abruzzo, Italy. .My main accomodation is a nice static caravan that sleeps 3-4 comfortably, but there are beds for up to 7. There's also room for tents and an old building with an openfire that needs saving. I have mains water but no electrics. There's a composting WC. When I needed internet I was able to use the wifi at a bar 500m away.
    It's a beautiful location 12 km from the Adriatic coast and 30 km from the mountains. Set amoungst the olive groves and vines.
    The nearest village is about 1.5km away and has a bank, post office, restaurant, minimarket and computer shop

    In the last week or end of October 2016 I need help picking olives. In the future I have an old building which I'd like to save. I need to demolish a wall and rebuild it. It's a thick outside wall made of bricks. The roof will also need fixing..
