  • Description


    Hello I am Lucia. Thirty-five years ago I moved to this beautiful place with the intention of realising an ideal life with nature, discovering it was a great experience for the whole family. Having been living alone recently, I began to notice that I needed extra help. I have the desire to share with others who can assist me looking after my dream with joy and passion.
    Besides activities closely related to the work needing to be carried out together in the countryside, we can practice Qi Gong and Shiatsu which I am instructor.
    In order to comunicate I am mostly looking for people who can speak Italian or French as my English is very low. If you do write in English, please keep it standard and simple.

    For any other information please don't feel hesitated to contact me. I'll look forward to hearing from you soon.
