Hey ! :)
First of all, I want to thank you for using your time for reading these words. :)
We want help from Now with an ancient and big house we possess in Garfagnana, a lovely and peaceful area in the hills (almost mountains) of Tuscany.
It's a truly beautiful house, once possessed by one of the 1000 Garibaldi's Red Shirt and soon afterwards bought by my grand-granfather.
The surroundings are stunning for all those who love and enjoy Nature: the village in which the house is located (Sassi di Molazzana) is very small and the place is really quiet. All around you can find woods and paths to follow.
Who are we looking for?
We want to host smiley-peaceful human beings.
Solo-travellers ready to share and expand their already open mind.
"In Learning you will Teach & in Teaching you will Learn".
We are curious beings, and we Love to listen, learn and widen our horizons.
We are looking for the Ones on their Path of self-descovery and self-Love.
Contact us and let's be Awesome together. ;)
We have a lot of interests we are developing, and our lifestyle gets healthier as time passes.
We are heading in the direction of a more and more Natural Lifestyle, also concerning the care of our bodies and the selection of out thoughts.
We eat non animal food (at times Paolo eats eggs and honey, but that's the only exception), often simply raw food, we like to walk and being sorrounded by Nature.
We go and fetch fresh spring water very often, as we are so lucky to have an alkalineand oligominerale source of water close.
Paolo is a kind and generous man.
He has been on his healing path for years as well, and he is learning more and more how to take good care of himself and how to let go of what no longer serves him.
He practices the Five Tibetans daily and he considers himself his own doctor (as he has healed many illnesses he used to have in Natural ways).
He loves tennis table and table football, he's the one that passed me the Love for juggling and he taught me how to move my ears (can you do that? ;) )
He's a very charismatic man, loves to talk and share all that he knows. Generally good and funny stories, and super-useful tips about wellbeing and eating wonderfully-tasting-healthy food.
Who we Now are is a result of who we have decided to become.
Our lives have not been easy ones, and this has made us stronger and more willing to always look on the bright-side of situations.
Life can be challenging and it has been so for each of us (obviously in a different way for each one).
At the same time we have been blessed with many Miracles to be grateful for.
We offer you a single room, nice and healthy food, great conversations and the chance to be yourself, in the knowledge that you will be accepted and loved as you are.
Come, help us, feel part of our family and let's make some steps on our growing paths together.
Love & Gratitude
