  • Description


    We are Elena (38), Sole (7) and Manuel (43). We live in a "contrada", a small group of houses in a mountain area near Valli del Pasubio at 600m altitude. We are renovating the house as it is very old. Lots of manual works to do!
    We like nature and natural lifestyles, self-production, community, personal growth and so on. Elena is a yoga and acroyoga teacher (although in this period she is not practising much) and also produces natural cosmetics. Manuel is a very good handyman but works fulltime in a family business. We try to eat as much as possible organic food, mostly vegetarian. We have two adult hens and 3 fleas (2 female 1 male).

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Besides the work in the house, we can share social life in the mountains, as well as music, cultural exchange etc. This area is also very nice to go walking and enjoying nature by yourself.

    We have many things in mind you can help us with during your stay, but we would love to have someone who is familiar with handwork and reforms. As Manuel works fulltime and Elena has also other things to take care of, there can be parts of the day where you will be on your own.
    Thank you!

  • Accommodation


    You will have a private room to sleep. Meals will be consumed in principle together, unless there is a good reason not to, and so their preparation will be shared or we will take turns.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    There are beautiful walks and trips you can take around in nature, in a mountain environment. Unfortunately the house is not reachable with public transport, so in case you wanted to move a lot towards cities during your stay, this is not the right place for you!
