Ciao! we are Miki (1961) and my wife Hannah (1993, Belgian).
We live in an old farm into the woods, 700 mt of altitude, at the feet of the Alps, with the town of Biella only 10 Km far.
I have a daughter (1989) who lives in Roma, and 2 sons (1998 and 2000). For 30 years long I have been a biological goat farmer and high quality cheese producer.
At the moment here there are only 10 goats, together with chickens, dogs and cats, a usually rich garden and fruit plants.
Actually we are rearranging the house and the property land to create a welcoming place filled with harmony and joy, in order to open as a B&B as soon as possible.
We love good music, conversation, cultural exchanges, good food and cooking, work together, silence...
DIY and building projects
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help around the house
you will have the opportunity to breath a lovely, peaceful place, a welcoming family and you will learn about organic farming and gardening, cheese and jams making, a way of life more than possible out of the business one.
We need help reorganizing the house, farming, gardening and making jams, cleaning the land, making woods for winter, and around everyday's life like cooking and cleaning. We like good company and animals' friends.
We are not slavers, so we can plan together, person by person, according to both's necessities and interesses, the rhythms of the activities.
We can't host more than one person a time. We prefer long periods of permanence, only 1 or 2 weeks are just enough to breath this place, much better 1 month or more.
We live in this old farm with wood heating, simple food and simple life, cooking and having food together.
Wi-fi, bathroom and washing machine.
Indipendent accomodation in a room.
I smoke but I don't do it into the house.
Well, the land around here is very nice, and we are surronded by beautiful mountains, including the Monte Rosa, where you can take pleasure walking.
Biella is a small, pretty and hospitable town that doesn't offer too much.
Milano or Torino are easily reachable in a little more than 1 hour by train from Biella.
