    Description

    We are two nature lovers who live in a country land (1 hectare) in the countryside of Olmedo, a small village between Alghero and Sassari 13 km from the sea, we have three cuddly cats, 20 olive trees and as many fruit trees and other plants we planted to make this place as welcoming and harmonious as possible. We cultivate aromatic plants for the distillation of essential oils, we like cooking and eating good food. All of this needs to be taken care of, therefore sometimes we need a little bit of help.
    We practice different disciplines daily: Yoga, Taiji, meditation and energy work practices trying to give the best for our lives and other's too, nurturing our deepest and truest essence.
    We like to meet new people coming from all over the world and step outside of our routine.
    We are looking forward to meet you!
    Feel free to contact us for further informations.
    Om Shanti

    Due donne e una campagna... amanti della natura che vivono in un terreno (1 ettaro) nell'agro di Olmedo, un piccolo paese tra Alghero e Sassari a 13 Km dal mare, abbiamo tre gatti coccolosi, 20 Ulivi e altrettanti alberi da frutto ed altre piante che abbiamo piantato per rendere più armonico ed accogliente questo posto. Coltiviamo piante aromatiche per la distillazione di oli essenziali, ci piace cucinare e mangiare buon cibo genuino.

    Help

    Based on the season we will need help with pruning olive trees, collecting olives for the production of the house's olive oil. Other projects include: building small walls made of stone, a garage space, woodwork and general repairs and maintenance around the house. Taking care of the orchard, collect fruits, make jams and mostly all year round, we'll need help to collect flowers and plants to create essential oils, through distillation (May and July in particular are dedicated to the collection of Helichrysum and Lavander)
    Some volounteer work might include cleaning the rural streets or beaches from trash.

    Accommodation

    From October to April, you can stay in the little house that is usually rented out to tourists in the summer and from April/May to September, you will stay in a comfortable roulotte with kitchen appliances, electricity and outside toilet. If you prefer to camp outside (with a tent or you Caravan) you can do so, since the property is big enough.
    We provide all the food and we can have lunch together at the main house.
    We can also come and pick you up at the airport of ALGHERO (it's only 15 minutes away) if you are coming by plane. Or if you are coming with the trains or busses from any of the ferry terminals, we can come and pick you up in Sassari or Alghero or at the Olmedo train station.
