We have a House up the Mountain of a small beautiful Island called Filiudi. The House is Surrounded by Land that we plant and work on. There are a lot of olive trees, capperi plants and the stuff we Have in our Garden, salad, broccoli, Tee, Herbst and fruit trees among other plants.
We can see the sea from our house and it is always possible to go on foot for a swim. It takes around 12 minutes on foot to get to the closest parking lot where we have the car. Usually we go nearly everyday down to the village to buy some food or see other people. There are some other houses on the walkway that we call neighbors just a few minutes walk far.
At the moment we are working in the house itself as there are some renewals to do. By this we try to eat a cooked meal everyday and the housekeeping itself is also a part of what we do. We welcome helpers of any kind, could be cooking, carpenting or farming. There are a lot of things to do all around. We offer food and the accommodation in a tent just under the house, possibly a bedroom.
I am happy to answer you’re questions of any kind and arrange your arrival. You can write me an email or phone message
