  • Description


    Hi, my name is Adriana and I'm 28 year- old woman running my own, individually operated B&B in beautiful San Giovanni Italy.

    It's a sweet place in the countryside surrounded by greenery and mountains. The B&B is fashioned in my family’s antique house with a lot of history and large rooms perfect for creative freedom. There are gardens, and a unique garage space in back which is currently being renovated into a performance area. Not to mention the cheese from the local cheese makers will blow your mind!

    I also founded a cultural association through which I organize community focused events such as shows and concerts in the summertime. These projects are new, so I am looking for help getting such ideas off the ground and running. The association includes a library , a tailoring room, musical instruments, a rehearsal space and good vibrations. =)

    The house is a welcoming place for artists passing through, small town and city travelers alike, and anyone willing to put a little extra love into this incredible place. I look forward to meeting you soon!

  • Accommodation


    Depending on the season, accommodation varies. in the summertime sleeping may be outside of the B&B in the old house next door; in the wintertime there will be rooming inside the B&B, as guests are fewer.

    Food will be provided and we can cook all together as one creative, artistic family. :-)

    What else ...

    Local transportation systems are not always convenient, but I have a car and can transport volunteers to neighboring villages and train stations as needed.

    We're near Turin, Aosta, Ivrea as well as the beautiful "Valchiusella" valley with a river, big stones and mountains.
    There are castles, mountains and Italian cooking that cannot be missed!
