  • Description


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

    We just moved in the house, on january 2021.
    There are many things to do, in the house and in the garden: move and build furniture, plastering, cleaning... To do a Project and build the garden ....
    Any manual and artistic skills are really appreciate!

    I have been workawayer the last 5 years (since february 2014) in Greece, Turkey, Italy, Spain. It has been, for me, a super great esperience.
    I had no comfort but i could ecperience freedom, my fear and my courage, my sickness and my strongness. I lernt about me and others. I lernt many manual things. I have seen beautiful places, I met beautiful people.

    After this nice experience, it has been spontain to decide to open and share our piace to other people. Peter is also very happy to have workawayers.

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