  • Description


    We live out of Cocconato Asti, not too far from the town center (1 km by walk). Cocconato is around 35 km from Asti and 40 Km from Turin. You can reach Cocconato easily by train and bus.

    We are a family of 4 people, our little boy is 12 years old. our little girl is almost 7 years old.

    We do not smoke.
    Actually we're not full time working so we have some free time to show you the surrounding areas.
    We go bed early or late, depending on how much tired we feel after working in the vegetable garden.
    We can host weekdays and weekends.

    We can host you on some bed-coach and we do have blankets.Picture are available on request.

    We think that one week is a good starting point to know each other better :)

    We are looking for people interested in permaculture and giving value to what already exists vs what is new and demands new resources. We are beekepers, have some poultry (4 chicken) and a couple of little goats. We also are just at the beginning in our project, and we look both for people without experience as people that already know the problems of homesteading. Practice or interest in ancient jobs (woodworking, vegetable garden, animals, preserving food and cooking) are what we look for. Some masonry is appreciated but also music lessons! So there's plenty of space for experimenting. Thanks
