  • Beschreibung


    We are a family with almost grown up children, living in a beautiful "rustico", a typical 300 years old farmhouse which we renovated mostly on our own. We are very active and interested in alternative living and culture as well as music, theatre and cinema. I am a former computer engineer, men's work facilitator, photographer, spiritual healer and proud father of 2 magnificent young adults. My wife is a very versatile handy-crafter, artist, hostess and tourist guide as well as bandstand manager, natural cosmetics consultant and passionate mother. We live in a wild, rustique valley with houses built in a traditional way with walls and roofs made of stone. It is very sunny here (of course we get some rain too sometimes), the climate is very warm for this area, sometimes a bit windy, clear skies and pristine nature surrounding the place. Wild animals can be seen almost every day, we have clear starlit skies and it is usually very quiet (no noise). You will be living in a unique, relaxing place which has always been inspirational to painters, writers, sculptors and other artists alike.

    We are looking for someone who could help us establish a perma-culture garden and make this wonderful place the paradise it has the potential for. It's about creating the space and shaping the landscape. Building up the infrastructure and planting the first set of fruit and vegetables there. It's also a good place for people who like to work manually in many ways with natural materials like stone and wood. We might also do some renovation works on the house.

    Was noch ...

    There are excellent places to hike, do bicycle tours, climbing (wall right behind our house), the Lake Maggiore is just about 30 min. drive from here, waterfalls, wild animals grasing on our land (no dangerous animals however).

    The nearest Trainstation is Locarno and the nearest Airport Milan Malpensa (one can also fly to Zurich and then take a scenic ride in the train, which also leads through the longest tunnel in the world).

    The landlady is a handycrafter in strawhats and other objects made of that material like baskets, necklaces etc. There is a Bluesfestival in the valle Maggia, (Magic Blues) we have direct connections to and the famous Locarno Film festival, both in summertime. We expect our guests to be respectful and treat our home in awareness and care, to be mindful of the nature around us and our neighbours who cherish their privacy and the amazing silence that this valley still offers. It is important to keep our tools and the house in order and place tools and instruments back to their original place. Please bear in mind that going out here is complicated and not much of a nightlife is present in the valley (public transportation service ends in the evening).
