    Beschreibung

    We are building an adventure park on the sunny island Sicily.

    It is for both children & adults to get back in touch with nature, experience adventures and to enjoy the beauty of the world.

    All we ask is that you respect the environment. (And that you read further infos, wich we send you by email.)

    It is a wonderful green place full of life and under beautiful sunshine. You can enjoy the sea view to the Aeolian islands close to us as well natural lonely beaches.

    We are currently setting up basic facilities such as solar showers, a workshop, sleeping huts and are rebuilding the hundred years old farm. We have some tents & hammocks - please enquire before hand for availability.

    When you are here you can do permaculture gardening as well as assisting in the construction of buildings in wood & stone.

    We have a lot of building material from good partners & friends - you are welcome to put this to use :)

    We produce our own olive oil (real virgin - from handpicked fruits), wine (own foot production!) fresh tomato sauce (one of the world's best thanks to Sicilian sun & Mount Aetna) as well as much more with ecologically valuable produce from our land & garden. (In the moment the garden is growing. We work on self-sufficiency for the future.)

    We are always being as simplistic and as close to nature as possible - therfore nearly no electricity - the off-grid dream!

    (We have a little solar module. You can load some devices.)

    Life here is very simple. Just like Robinson Crusoe when he was stranded on a lonely island. The difference; on our sunny island we are never alone, thanks to the very hospitable Sicilians, friends & volunteers from all around the world.

    Every body & every soul that visits here falls in love with this paradise island.

    You are always welcome.

    *️️We will send you the complete basic infos by email.*️️

    Kultureller Austausch und Lernmöglichkeiten

    We will show you the most beautiful spots of the island and you can make your own adventure trips; on the mountains and especially Aetna, discover the hidden beach or 'God's arm' - the blue lagoon - and the rich cultural history of the region. Experience what it's like to make your own wine, have a taste of a simpler, slowed down life and get in touch with the original rural life of Sicily.

    Near to here are the Aeolian Islands. Seven magical little islands, each has it's own character and are wealthy with minerals and, rightly so, The Aeolian Islands are listed by UNESCO as World Heritage Sites. 2014 one swam from them to us... only 30 kilometers! Normaly we prefer the boat...

    We will build our own sailiing ship in the next years. Right now you can learn of the construction of little wooden buildings up to big tree houses. Also you can learn by doing - using alternative natural building materials, such as for yurts and cob houses...

    ... you are free to learn by doing here - the possibilities are endless.

    If you ever wanted to give a place your own brush stroke, this is the place to do it.

    You are a manufacturer or a dab hand at building?
    We are looking for people who are willing to work with their hands.
    Best would be carpenters and other craftsmen,
    but anyone willing to pick up a shovel or a hammer is welcome.

    You can
    - help in the Garden (plant, maintain, harvest)
    - help with buildings (dig holes, do carpentry)
    - build your own version of a treehouse or tent (it has to be safe though)

    We got work to do and the site is big (200.000 m²) so we can host 10 and more workawayers at a time. Moreover, we are social people and we like to be in good company. We speak italian, english and german.

    We have hammocks & tents to sleep in. You can bring your own tent and hammock if you would like. We cook over open fire or on our big BBQ and eat together underneath orange and tangerine trees or the starlit sky. The menu is quite diverse, as our garden provides us with a variety of ecological vegetables and fruits - and as we are in Sicily pasta and rice is kind of obligatory. There even is an old pizza oven which needs restoration. So maybe this might be your personal project?

    Other wooden constructions we can realize with you in the next years:
    Treehouses, Thermo-Solar-Shower, COBs, Yurts, and much more.

    There is a room we can lock for your personal belongings and even a restored barn, in case the weather should be bad. Currently it is used to store our building material.

    We built a compost toilet, as it is not yet complete we still use our natural basic toilet in the woods. We will soon finish "the most beautiful compost toilet in the world"...

    Up to now, we heat our showering water by solar power but one of the next steps will be to build a solarthermic shower.

    In the carpentary we are welcome to make use of the working tools and machinery. The owner supports the project.

    Was noch ...

    Currently the only 'stationary' pioneers here are Christian and Daniele.
    They are accompanied by our great donkey Hercules, handsome dogs, cats, several chicken, a few guest horses, and the occasional snake. (The black snakes you can meet in summer are as dangerous as the worms in the garden - not at all :-D ...Instead the worms are very usefull and "nearly big as little snakes", thanks to the very good soil. ;-)

    What the area can offer:
    An epic view on the Tyrrhenian sea, including the seven Aeolian Islands,
    the Sanctuary of Tyndari and the archaeological site of Tyndaris nearby,
    as well as amazing lonesome beaches and many tourist attractions,
    like old castles and natural preserves only a stone's throw away!
