  • Description


    We are a "modern family" consisting of Italian / Danish / Welsh. Alessia & Massimo (late 40's) our daughter Rebecca who is 13 and Morgan her godfather 34. We have a 10 acre property in the countryside 5 mins from San Martino al Cimino which is a beautiful little village 20 mins from Viterbo. We are eventually looking to turn this magical space into an eco retreat // wellness // agrotourismo. Massimo's parents who are in their 80's live on property, also his sister and her husband live next door (Carla is constantly cooking & makes the most amazing food!). We have very healthy orchids, vines, geese, pigs, chickens, cats, dogs & goats on the property and a very special grotto which we are looking at turning into a small grotto pool & sweat lodge / sauna. We need help to maintain the property and gardens / start planning the eco - project.
