  • Description


    We are mother, Elena, 37, and daughter, Sole, almost 7. We live in a "contrada", a small group of houses in the hills of a mountain area near Schio (Vicenza). We like nature and natural lifestyles, self-production, community spirit and so on. I am a yoga and acroyoga teacher and I do different small jobs, I also produce natural cosmetics. We try to eat as much as possible organic food, mostly vegetarian. We have two hens so there are some fresh eggs at home. Although we are close to the woods and the mountains, we are also quite close to the nearest towns, Santorso and Schio. We also have a small homegarden.

    I can teach you how to make natural cosmetics; we can share some yoga or acroyoga time, as well as walks, music, singing and other. This area is also very nice to go walking and enjoying nature by yourself.

  • Help


    I have many things in mind you can help me with during your stay. Reorganizing spaces, cleaning and home general maintenance is always needed. If you are good with handwork, I have improvements to make in the house and small handworks. I also need sometimes that you take care of my daughter Sole. We could also go collect some wild plants or fruits in nature and process them. If you are a non-italian language speaker, some nice language teaching to Sole (and maybe me!) would be appreciated :-)
    Thank you!

  • Accommodation


    You could have a small room for yourself. 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, depending also on what kind of help you are giving :)

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    There are beautiful walks and trips you can take around in nature, in a mountain environment. Schio is about 15 minutes away by car (maybe a bit longer with public transport) and from there you can also take the train to Vicenza (about 50 minutes). Our place is reachable with public transport and a small walk, although the public transport does not run too often.
