  • Description


    Hi, we are Eleonora (59) and Nicola (83), we live in the heart of Italy in a country house. With us there is an elderly mother (95). We have a teaching farm with a dozen donkeys, sheep and hens. Students, families and groups can come to visit us and stay with the animals. We also work with people in difficulty. Around us there are 27 hectares with forest, pasture and stables. We like to eat the vegetables of our garden, make the cheese with the kefir and cook the bread in our oven.
    In the spring we work in the garden and in the summer we get up early because during the day it's hot. If it rains we dress with high and waterproof shoes.
    In this period we ask Green Pass.
    We do request our helpers to have personal travel insurance and we do not provide support for obtaining Visas or Residential matters.
