  • Description


    Hi guys I'm Carmine, after almost 10 years living between Spain and South America I came back to my beautiful village with the idea of recovering all the lands that for decades had been cultivated by my grandparents. I want to renovate some cabins that were used in the past as stables and build an ecolodge out of it. I'm also running together with my family a small production of Extra Virgin Olive Oil and basic organic farming. We're looking for motivated skillfull people that want to help us in these tasks: bioconstruction, farming, art and music project. If you're looking for an authentic local experience in South Italy, then this is your place.
