  • Description


    I'm trying to run my own little farm.
    It's not a business but more a life style.
    I'm living in my land with my two dogs, chickens, a cat and a little veggie patch.
    The ocean is very close and we can listen to the waves when south wind is blowing.

  • Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You could stay in a very relaxing and easy going environment, surrounded by nature and very close to the ocean.
    I'm Italian and I can speak up to five languages, I could share them with you!
    I have basic knowledge of permaculture and organic agriculture.

  • Help


    I'd need help with the veggie garden, weeding, watering and planting.
    Some general maintenance job is needed in the land, like clearing canes and bushes.
    We're re thinking to build an extra shed in summer, so if you have building abilities that would be awesome.

  • Accommodation


    We have a compost toilet at the land and a very limited water supply, unfortunately.
    You would need your own van or tent to accommodate yourself.
    In case you just have a car i have a tent pitched in the chill area of the garden!
    I offer meals and a safe place to park your van or pitch your tent.
    The land is 2 km from the nearest village, so it would be easier to have your own vehicle.
