Hi, my name is Fabio, I live with my family Luisa, Virgilio (24) and Martina (23).
We live in a villa in Rome's northen countryside, the house is eco-built with around a hectare and half of land with olive trees, fruit trees, vegetable garden and a vineyard. We have dogs and cats, two donkeys and chickens. we enjoy the nature, art and outdoor activities.
We had experiences with young exchange students and travelers from Australia and Argentina. we love to learn new things and cultures from around the world.
Help with Eco Projects
DIY and building projects
Help around the house
We like sharing a little bit of our life and we think that hosting is a great opportunity to get to know new cultures, languages, and people! we look forward to share our lifestyle with good wine and tasty food, maybe to teach you how to cook some amazing italian meal and how to speak italian. We'd aslo love share our passion for art, nature and animals.
We would need mostly help outdoors, in particular during the spring we will need help in the garden, pruning fruit trees and the vineyard, setting up the new vegetable garden (and maybe re-painting the house). In September I'll need help harvesting grapes and making wine, while in October mainly maintenance and wood/outdoor work (they are demanding and physical job). In November we might pick olives to make olive oil. Other small tasks would be my wife Luisa around the house mostly with the cleaning, organizing and cooking (sometimes you could show us your typical dishes if you like!), and help in making essential oils from lavender, rosemary and other plants (only in June/July).

We live 5km from the nearest town, Campagnano, and 35km from Rome, to get to the city it's only 40 minutes by train and we go down almost every day to go to work or to go to the university. The train station is 10 minutes drive from our house and we could happily drive you there when you want to visit Rome's highlights or just go around.
We live close the Martignano and Bracciano lakes regional park, and Martignano is only 5 minutes drive. The area around has plenty of Etruscan archaeological sites.
We like having good healthy meals all together and we enjoy our time with family and friends.
