  • Description


    Looking for a person with a great soul and an open mind to share our dream: bring back to life our great home and the land that surrounds it, abandoned for many years, to create a magical and uncontaminated place with garden and animals that can give serenity to those that they visit it.

    Hi! We are Antonio and Luisa with our young children (5 years and 2 years). We are "Neo-rural": we left the city and accost our professions as Journalist and Pedagogist to grow ourself and our children in the countryside, allowing them to discover nature and benefit from it.
    We are working for food subsistence.
    We love art, literature and music. But not only. We are passionate about old stories and antiques.
    We respect older people and we believe that they are the greatest cultural value.
    We are part of nature and we live respecting it and taking care of it.

    We live in an ancient and large house that is located above a small and picturesque forest, in the hills. We have the vegetable garden (biodynamic and natural cultivated), fruit trees, many of which are wild, as well as two sweets French horses.
    Our property is located in the countryside on the edge of the historic center of a very nice country, cared for and inhabited by sunny and kind people. It is located in Piemonte, between Langhe, Roero and Monferrato (the wine area UNESCO): a few km from Asti and Alba (famous also for white truffle).

    There is no traffic and in addition to the church, the bar and the library, there are many streets of dirt for walks and some impressive houses of architectural value to be admired.

    Our days are dynamic and we spend a lot of time in our house-farm, working hard but trying to respect our biological rhythms and above all giving space to the child needs of our children and accompanying them towards a harmonious development.

    We often host friends at home with whom we carry out various cultural projects and some related to Waldorf pedagogy for our children. For them we know how to prepare excellent vegetarian and gluten-free dishes.
