    Description

    We are an Experience hotel immersed in wild forest of central Tuscany - rebuilding a sustainable community in an abandoned village. This spring we will build a vegetable garden & greenhouse, create a recycling facility & compost, implement a rainwater storage solution & make design improvements to some of the bedrooms. During the spring and autumn we will be open for weddings, group bookings and for family holiday bookings in July & August

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You will find us on the side of a mountain in the middle of the Casentino National Park forest. We are completely surrounded by beautiful nature, with a wild river running along the bottom of our track. In exchange for a few hours work a day you will have a place to sleep in our beautiful hotel, 3 great meals a day prepared by our head chef, and most of all an epic experience! There is a great team moral - we work hard, but have a great time doing it! We take Italian lessons once a week with our neighbour and work very closely with local businesses so you will be fluent in no time!
