    Hello everyone, my name is Silvio, I am from Venice but I have been touring Catalonia since 2001. 3 years ago I bought a wonderful 50 hct forest estate overlooking the Susqueda reservoir, with a farmhouse to rehabilitate, but the paperwork goes on. At the moment the tasks are: moving stones, moving logs and moving forward with the garden, fetching water from the river, building the chicken coop, cleaning roads on the farm. In a second moment there will be interventions by artists who will create specific sculpture for the place. There is a caravan with a double bed and a single bed, so it can fit 3 people. The stays must be short (3-4 days) at the moment, until more cabins and wooden houses are built.

    Hola a todos,
    Me llamo Silvio, soy de Venecia pero llevo desde el 2001 dando vueltas por Catalunya.
    Hace 3 años compré una finca estupenda de 50 hct de bosque con vistas al pantano de Susqueda, con un masía para rehabilitar, pero el papeleo va por largo.

    De momento las tareas son: mover piedras, mover troncos y avanzar con la huerta, traer el agua del rio, construir el gallinero, limpiar caminos en la finca.

    En un segundo momento habrá intervenciones de artistas que crearán escultura especificas para el lugar.

    Hay una caravana con una cama doble y una singola, así que caben 3 personas.

    Las estancias han de ser breves (3-4 dias) de momento, hasta que no se construyan más cabañas y casitas de madera.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You will live in the middle of the forest, teaching what you know and learning what you don't. I speak english, italian, spanish, a bit of catalan. I like to walk in the woods and take pictures of the nature, I can teach photography, history of art and the above languages.

  • Help


    I am looking for every kind of people who thinks that can give something to the project. From cleaning around the house, helping doing the veggie garden, helping building shelters and small houses for the next guests - or for yourself if you want to stay.
