    LOOKING FOR HELP FROM 15TH OF MARCH FOR PAINTING JOBS!!

    This Guesthouse 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.
    If you want to come with a friend, PLEASE DON'T CONTACT ME. AT THE MOMENT I ONLY HOST ONE PERSON AT A TIME. So if you contact me, be sure that it is not a problem for you to be alone at times.
    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.

    WE DON´T ACCEPT ANY SMOKERS !!!

    WE ARE LOOKING FOR YOGA TEACHER THAT WOULD LIKE TO STAY WITH US AND GIVE CLASSES TO THE GUESTS !!

    Help

    At the moment we are restoring the old houses, therefore the help required is mainly construction work, such as cleaning old wooden doors, cleaning rusty railings, taking of old plaster. Work might be hard, but it is rewarding because you can see right away that you created, improved something.There will be help needed also with the guests and cleaning the comunal areas. Since I cannot offer meals, I only request 3 hours per day. You have full use of the comunal kitchen to prepare your own meals (in this area you can get by with a few euros to take care of your meals). In this area grocery shopping is not so expensive. In the little village next to Via Piana ther is a grocery store. There is also a discount supermarket in Sora where you can buy 1 kilo (2,2 pounds) of Pasta for 0,70 euro cents. Also at the local food market on thursdays you can buy very cheap fresh and local food. You can prepare your meals in the comunal kitchen that we just finished building in 2010.
    Since we are planing on making an organic vegetable garden soon for the volunteers use, there will also be some gardening work.

    Minimum stay is two weeks, but longterm stays prefered.Also I prefer to host individual travelers. It just works out better for this project so we decided not to host couples or friends that come together. Thank you for respecting these terms. so if you want to come with a friend, please don't contact me. At the moment I only host one person at a time. So if you contact me, be sure that it is not a problem for you to be alone at times. Can you entertain yourself, or do you need fellow volunteers?

    If you want to stay in a place longer, please contact me. I need help with cleaning the guestrooms mainly and taking care of the house including chores like watering the plants. Also I will need help cooking because I prepare meals for guests . I am happy to teach you some things about cooking, if you are interested.

    Accommodation

    Accomodation is in rustic room shared with up to two other people. The bathroom has a low ceiling and is outside, but it is completely functional. So far there is no heating in the room, so people who suffer a lot from the cold should only come from end of April to the end of September. In late october it starts to become cold here and we don't have heating in the rooms. However many people didn't mind since it can get warmer during the day if the sun comes out. It becomes warm again in April.
