  • Description


    Help renovate an old house at the foot of the mountain in the Abruzzo, Lazio and Molise National Park.
    It is a typical mountain house surrounded by nature. The house has been abandoned for 16 years and l, we almost got it back to life.
    We are right between Rome and Naples, two hours from both cities, but the best connection is from Rome. Two hours by bus - there are more than 10 buses a day, including Sundays and holidays. We offer transfer service from Sora railway station, 20 minutes by car.
    The nearest village, Campoli Appennino is 6 km away and has a grocery store, a supermarket, a bar and a pizzeria.
    Update: Work with restoration is almost over. We did a great deal. There is still work to do, but now we need more help in the garden and the forest - gardening, cutting firewood and collecting olive oil in November. Even honing old doors and windows and painting them.
    we would also like to host Yoga teachers.
