  • Description


    Enjoy your time in the wonderful mountains near Assisi, the world culture heritage in Umbria, Italy known from St. Francis of Assisi, the medieval Saint most known for his love and adoration for nature as well as for his passion for peace with all religions.

    Our Project is a project of re-connection. Reconnection with the earth, reconnection with oneself and reconnection with the human beings surrounding you directly in this moment. We start the day with watering the garden and feeding the horses, than having a little silent meditation before breakfast. Sometimes we are singing Taizé Chants or Earth Songs. We are inspired by Francis from Assisi, Santa Chiara di Assisi, buddhist eco-teacher Joanna Macy, Paul Lowe who teaches radical honesty and others.

    We have a biological vegetable garden, many nut trees, berries, figues, pommegranate, 140 olive trees, wood and plums. We work with perma culture, terra preta and effective microorganisms.

    Your help is warmly welcome in the garden, in the woods, in the meadows, in the stable, in cleaning the house and sometimes playing with our five year old son.

    Our house is rather simple. We heat only with wood for instance, we have a compost toilette, we cannot use as much water as to take a shower everyday, since we have our own well. So it is a good idea maybe for you to consider primarily if you would like such a rather simple, ecological way of life. Our wealth is the nature, the silence, the possibility to live a life in Connection with mother nature.

    Space for parking camper vans

    A rather small camper van can park on our parking space. Huge vehicles cannot be hosted. Our street is quite bad. So your camper van should not be too flat on the street. It is very bumpy.
