  • Description


    We are a Swiss family that have been living in Orosei, Sardinia, since August 2001. We had different projects. One on the land called "Chilivri" with working, living & praying together which has come to an end and is now in phase of a new vision.
    We had to tear down the old buildings that our parents did build 30 years ago and are planing a new project with 8 small bungalows, a prayer house and a bigger house where with a kitchen and multiple task room. Also Acquaponics, growing our own bio vegetables and fish.
    The last 14 years we did also build and work as a tourism business. Due to the new situation with Covid we intend to sell some apartments in order to build a small village on the hill of the 6 acres of land.
    Actually we are in the phase of designing the project with an architect and also doing a new website.
    Our neighbours are doing parmaculture.

    For the moment we are looking for helpers that can stay in one of our apartments in exchange for helping us 3 hours on our 6 hectare beautiful land with hundreds of trees. Maybe you have a small home office work with which you could provide your own food. Or you want to study from here.

    If you want housing and food and want to help for 5 hours a day and want to stay longer than a month, maybe we could find a solution also.
    Our wish is that our place becomes a small „Rifugio“ (shelter) to you that feels like home. It's best to come with your own car. Or we can give you a bicycle.

    Our business is closed during winter and this year also in Spring due to Covid problems and we do NOT want workawayers for our business even in summer. We already have a fix staff which of family members and locals for the Holiday Residence Rifugio.

    What else ...

    An ideal place for people who like beautiful surroundings near the sea and the mountains but who also appreciate being very close to a typical Mediterranean holiday resort. Orosei is a picturesque coastal village situated about an hour’s drive south of Olbia (port and airport). Our apartments are about 1 mile from the beach on the beautiful Gulf of Orosei also known as Europe’s Caribbean. The sandy beach “Marina di Orosei” can be reached by car, bike or a twenty minute walk alongside the river “Cedrino”. Restaurants, cafés and shops are within a walking distance of one to five minutes.
