We are a foster family taking care of little children that cannot stay with their parents for social or sanitary problems.
We have tre kids of 16, 14 and 4 and host generally other two or three little ones. We live in the countryside, and we are developing a little farm with honeybees, vegetable garden and some woods.
We have found this place in the mountains facing the sea, after traveling for a couple of year. Living in contact with nature, consciousness in our life style, reduce the waste and find the skill to live a happy an fulfilling life are our goals.
The farm was abandoned for many years when we moved in, last December. There is still a lot to do to make it nice and comfortable. We need people helping us to give a new life to this beautiful place.
We are vegetarians and non-smokers.
