  • Description


    Hi there!
    here is Matteo and Gael, we live on top of a hill in the countryside just out of Perugia!
    In the last 3 years, i've been involved in building up a seminar house and meditation centre here where we live.
    We organized many events and meet a lot of people, sharing very nice and sometimes deep experience!
    Now we just had the breaking news that soon we have to leave our lovely place, the landlord decide to sell the house and our project have to move somewhere else! Life is always in movement!
    We hope that life will make us meet someone, maybe you, that would like to spend some times with us supporting with anything that can be helpful this last part of the project! :-)
    Hope to see you soon,

    Matteo and Gael

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We can share our approach to personal growth, mindset work, cooking healthy ( and un-healthy traditional Italian recipes ;-) ), parenting, sustainable agricolture and teach practical skills about gardening. I teach meditation monday evening and practice yoga every morning, so you are very welcome to join for both!

  • Help


    Any kind of help is appreciated! What we would like to receive, is help with the soft part of move preparation as cleaning around house and garden, painting walls and other little things. Is also a help spending time with Gael (5 years old), and in this case it would be nice playing with him speaking in english!
    That it, simple but for us very helpful! :-)

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We are in the countryside, 8 km of Perugia city Centre, and about 15 km from Assisi. To move from our house to nearest cities there are few buses, or i can give you a ride to catch a train or bus to anywhere. Umbria is a region full of medieval and Etruscan cities and villages that are very suggestive. For outdoor activities in the area is possible to do mountain trekking, rafting, kayaking on a lake, and many more sports.
