    If your dream is to open a pet boarding center by yourselves or you love to take care of dogs or you are a veterinary student, then this is the right place for you!

    We can give you over 25 years' experience!

    We are me Daniele, my partner Alexandra, our infant daughter Elisabetta, my daughter Aurora (18), and my son Sirio (16).

    We live on a former tobacco farm and former dairy that we reconverted into a pets' boarding house. The house is a typical country house from the 1950s of about 200 square metres on two floors; there are four rooms, one kitchen, one reception office, three bathrooms (though one needs to be fixed), and one big room with a big fireplace (which also needs to be fixed). Two more rooms have a fireplace, one has a stove, and then there is a old cowshed and an old barn. There is also a wood oven to make pizza or bread. Surrounding the house there is a garden, a vegetable garden and fields (around 25 hectares) of corn, sunflowers and wheat.

    If you like the countryside, dogs, cats, gardening, living on a farm in Italy, then this is the right place! We live on a farm in the Tevere Valley, not far from Rome, the same river that crosses Rome. The main activity is taking care of dogs and cats. This involves feeding them, cleaning their living quarters, giving any needed medicines, bathing them, playing with them, and supervising when they play with each other. There are three types of pets at our facility: 1) family pets and French bulldogs that we breed, 2) boarding guests, and 3) abandoned and homeless dogs and cats that we take in and try to find homes for.

    From the house, there's a country road where you can walk, run or bike along a river. Within a 10 km perimeter, there are no cars, only fields of grass and trees.

    The villages near our place are very small, picturesque and quaint, but in 40 minutes by train you can reach the center of Rome and in 1.5 hours the center of Florence.

    There are so many things to do that it is difficult to include them all here. We are flexible and we want to hear from you what we should. Steve Jobs said, "It doesn't make sense to hire smart people and then tell them what to do; we hire smart people so they can tell us what to do." We can adapt to your skills and find something for you!

    Last but not least, I serve great original Italian food! We often prepare vegetarian meals although not everyone in the house is vegetarian.

    You are welcome!

    Helping us is a very interesting experience for anyone who studies veterinary science or agronomy or is interested in working with pets, from dog breeding to dog training, etc.
    It's also a great experience for those who want to study Italian and Italian arts
    My main hobby is sailing, so if the weather is good and you want to learn how to sail, I promise you a great experience on board!

    We are located in the countryside of Orte, a small medieval village near Viterbo. At the end of summer each year, the main attraction is the Ottava Medievale.
    Rome, Florence, Viterbo, Orvieto, and Siena are all accessible within 30-90 minutes.
    We have hot springs in the countryside called Bagnaccio and you can also visit nearby Marmore Falls.
    We are 7km from the Orte train station and can provide a bicycle for you to use to get to the train station.
