  • Description


    Olive organic farm and bed and breakfast. I run the farm since 1998 and love growing olives,vegetable and cook vegetarian food. Volunteers can enjoy working in this lovely location not far form the sea and visit art towns like Urbino, the hometown of Raffaello Sanzio, Ravenna and its mosaics, San Marino the indipendent Republic within Italy.
    If you like to visit also Rome, Florence or Venice you can catch a train in the morning and come back in the evening.
    There are lovely middle age castles around like Gradara, Montefiore, Mondaino and San Leo. Accomodation is in the bed and breakfast out of season like September and Octobre, other options are provided in July and August. Food is vegetarian only(healthy though). In October we will be picking olives morning till mid afternoon, then prepare dinner together. It s easy work and fun if you ve got the right attitude to work. You will follow the process of making olive oil which is really interesting. You ll have a free day for sightseeing around the area or I can take you visit places with great pleasure. Working hours are 5 a day, one day off every 5 days. Money offered for extra hours work.

    Couple most welcome but in general people who would like to learn about olive organic farming and enjoy an Italian experience.Looking forward to hosting you. Have a lovely day.🙋Mara
