  • Description


    Help us do the general maintenance of a house at the foot of the mountains in the National Park of Abruzzo, Lazio and Molise.
    It is a typical mountain house surrounded by nature.
    The house was abandoned for 16 years and after about 10 years of work we have almost completely recovered it.
    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 public holidays.
    We offer a transfer service from the Sora train station, 20 minutes by car.
    The nearest village, Campoli Appennino is 6 km away and has a grocery shop, supermarket, bar and pizzeria.
    Update: the restoration work is almost finished.
    We got a great deal.
    There is still some work to be done, but now we mainly need more help in the garden, cleaning the house and the forest: gardening, cutting firewood and harvesting olive oil in November. Also sand old doors and windows and paint them.
    We would also like to host Yoga teachers.
