  • Description


    We are a young couple who lives in the italian countryside. I work from home like accountant, my boyfriend work in the countryside like shepherd: he's got small flock of sheep and goats raised for meat.

    We travelled abroad to learn about farming and now we are going to improve the farm. Our goal for the future is work together just in the farm.

    I would let know the people about a different lifestyle, close to the nature with an anciestral bond with the animals.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We are in Piedmont, Italy. The name of the village is Monastero Bormida, a small village in the countryside, one hour from Asti and the same from Alessandria. Travellers can reach the village by public transports: train until Acqui Terme then a bus to the village. We can bring the workawayers to us by car.

    We love outdoor life. Not Just farming, we like outdoor activity like climbing, mountain biking, hiking and yoga. Close to our house you can find lot of trails into the forest. We are between the sea and the mountains so there are lot of good place where spend the free time!!

    In the free time you can also visit villages aroud us or small but very nice city like Acqui Terme and Nizza Monferrato. We are in the Langhe Region, UNESCO heritage site, with ancient cave and lovely vineyards landscapes.

    We are one hour from the Ligurian Sea and two hours and half from the noth-west Alps, so with two days off you can see very different landscape of Italy.

    This is not a place for people love big city, big party and lot of people...
