  • Description


    Hi, I am Elisabetta (33) and togheter with my husband Roberto (36) we live in the countryside near Turin with our sons Marcello (3yo) and Adriano (1yo). We decided to move in Susa Valley few years ago to enjoy nature, because we work both as naturalistic guides. Roberto organizes hiking tours in the Alps, especially with foreigners while I work mostly in environmental education with kids.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Travellers can learn a lot of things about gardening and building (and also about kids!). We are both italians and we love to cook traditional meals but we are very open to world's kitchen, we love indian food. We are also open to any project travellers are interested in to build at our site, we have a lot of space and we can experiment and try new things, especially we would like to host art projects and we have a lot of instruments and materials at travellers disposal.

  • Help


    We are still restoring our house and we did some "green building" like a rocket stove and a pizza oven made in clay. Our son Marcello is 3 years old and his brother Adriano is 1 year old, so we need some help with the babies, especially in the afternoon, when they are not at school. We would need some help in doing some construction projects. We also have a big garden with fruit trees and a vegetable garden made with a permacultural approach and we need help to manage it and to seed the plants. .

  • Accommodation


    Private room with private toilet. We can host in a double room or in a four-places room, both with terrace. We have this two rooms and sometimes we rent it to tourists. There is also a small tavern with a stove and a kitchen to use in common with us and tourists.

    We will offer every meal (4 per day) and we can prepare food together (typical food, pasta, pizza, etc) in our home kitchen. We have a mostly vegetarian diet. Meanwhile travellers are allowed to use another kitchen (especially in summer, when you don't have to heat it) with fridge and everything they need to cook by themselves if they prefer it and we can offer ingredients for the meals.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We live in a quiet village at about 30 min from the city of Turin, very close to nature and the Alps, connected with the city with a bus (directly in the village) and a train every 30 min (in a close village, reachable by bicycle in 15min or car in 5min). In their time off travellers can walk in the near wood, hike starting directly from home, it's possible to do many sportive activity, there's a canyon with a fresh water stream at about 15min walking where we can bath in summer, there are two lakes at about 30min bicycle where it's possible to bath and canoing. We are close to Sacra di San Michele, an important monument that is reachable with a path or with a via ferrata. There are few bar and restaurants/pizzeria in the village but the city offer everything you need.
