    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Ecology is very important to us, but because it's impossible to fight every battle, we have chosen to focus on food and waste.
    We will ask you to share our habits while you're with us:
    - we don't eat cow meat;
    - we do the shopping together, in local shops and using our own packaging as much as possible;
    We ask you not to buy any food before discussing with us how to get it in the most sustainable way.
    We have one shopping list fot the entire family, your requests included.

    We are also making some efforts to reduce our energy footprint, and we'll be sharing our solutions with you.

    We enjoy experimenting new technics of farming and new ideas of educations of kids.

    Every time you join us for lunch and breakfast, preparing and cleaning together is expected, not as work, but as a community duty.

    What else ...

    We live in a touristic area with a lot of beautiful and interesting sites around (Pompeii, Capri, the Amalfi coast, Napoli, Pozzuoli... All of which can be reached at public transport).
    There are a lot of trails to hike around here, on the hills and mountains, and to the sea.
    We use electric bikes to go around locally and to reach the train station, port, etc. Our guests can use them when we don't need them.
