  • Description


    Hi there, my friends.

    We are developing modest, symbiotic & sustainable projects. The intention is to use money only as much is needed. Instead of it, we want to build on the good motivation and attitude of people. To give the opportunity of a new identity of life. We make it out oft joy and because it makes sense for all. We like to be creativ, use our mind and not to be under timepressure.

    We want to stay in the cycle of nature. We will do it with simple & primitive technology. A technology, the simple men stil keeps in overview. We like to use ouer brain and hands to create new concepts.

    Actually there is much need in a Project in the Alps.

    The Project is situated in the center oft the Dolomites, a Unesco world heritage.

    The place is below the mountain Sasso Piatto (Plattkofel). In the summertime the help consists in mow the meadow by hand, make hay, restore two little buildings, prepare for the winter. We sleep in the hay in a stable. We take bath/shower in the little brook. We cook in the little hut. In the wintertime there are other works, to plan and organize for the summer. We will have sheeps, alpakas, chicken, maybe dokeys aswell.

    We just started the project. It will be a minimalistic Project.
    A stay for max 6 people, with the opportunity to have guest in the stable.
    In a long term also some new little housings/caves made of natural materials, as wood, hay and snow and other materials we find on the site.

    Join us, have a nice time with us. Experiece pure life in nature.

  • Accommodation


    Your accommodation is in the hut or stable. In the hut there are two mattresses. In the stable you sleep in the hay, what I prefer and recommend. It's a nice feeling and wellness.

    Food is provided as part of the exchange.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    If you need urban life, you need to go to Bolzano. It takes 3 hours to get there.
    But there are several mountain huts around. One is nearby, 10 min far. A Restaurant with many tourists. It depends on the season. Sometimes they are closed, like October and November.
