    Hi! We are Francesca and Sergio with our joyful 4 years old baby.

    We are happy, open minded, loving to learn and connect with ourself, others, nature.

    We have three hectares field 5 km from the town of Farnese. A magic place sourrounded by wood and a with a river at ten minutes of sloping walk.
    We are now refurbishing there an old building, creating the hydric system (rain collectors, fytodepuration, etc), taking care of one hundred of olive trees, a minimal vegetable garden.

    We care to take responsibility in every aspect of life and that is also why we love to handicraft and product by ourself what we need, as much as possible.
    We are off-the-grid, with solar electricity, rainwater collector and compost toilet.

    We pass at the field the day but we still sleep in a town apartment.

    When we have time from building work:
    Francesca do artisanal works, like basketery and sewing; sometimes also organize courses and other events.
    Sergio do organic extravergine olive oil, beer and vegetables. Before this country life he worked many years as copy editor for a publishing house.
    Our doughter goes to school three days a week and in others love to help and cook and play with water and earth and flowers and friends.

    We offer home and cooking for 5 hours of help a day, 5 days a week.
    We welcome hosts as part of the family, for duties too, like washing dishes and cleaning.
    We are very careful about waste and ecology and we ask for the same attention, that it means for example save water as possible.

    We prefer to host people independent, dynamic, strong, able to express themselves, peaceful and possibly... with some sense of humor!

    How to reach us: at the train stops of Montalto di Castro or Viterbo you can take a bus Cotral to Farnese. Please check timetable in advance.

    Was noch ...

    You can take a long walk in the wood, go to the river or visit ancient towns, archeological sites, museums and more...
    Better with your own car because we have no time right now to go around and public transportation service is not so efficient here (but still you can move around, even if not everywhere).

    This is a straordinary land full of very ancient history and at the same time wild nature. We are sorrounded by woods ("Riserva Naturale Selva del Lamone") with waterfalls and pathwaysto archeological sites (Rofalco, Castro, Vulci); at 15 minutes by car from natural thermal water (and one hour to the best that is for us "Terme di S. Filippo") and beatiful waterfalls (es. Cascata del Salabrone) and lakes (Lago di Bolsena, Lago di Mezzano); 20-30 minutes - always by car - to ancient towns, like Pitigliano, Bolsena and Sorano; 30 minutes from seaside like Argentario and mountains Amiata.
    In this area there are also interesting local tiny museums ("Simulabo").
    Farnese in itself it's a very small town, but nice and usually welcoming.
