  • Description


    My partner (Peter,CH, 1966) and I (Emanuela, italy, 1970) on july 2019 become owner of a cosy stone house 150 years old!
    The house is in Piedmont (North Italy) very close to Alps Mountain and the border with Swiss.

    We moved in the house on January 2021.
    There are still some things to do in the house, but especially in the garden.

    I (Emanuela) have been travelling some years thanks workaway. And also Peter did some workawaying with me. We had very nice experiences, we could see nice places, met nice people, we could live the local culture.

    After this nice experiences, it has been easy to decide to open and share our place with other people!

    We wish you can have your wonderful life experience, too 😉.
