  • Description


    I lived as an entrepreneur in the tourism sector and the phrase of a film (I don't remember the title) read: "Why buy what nature gives us?" My personal journey took me a few years ago to leave everything and move to a land in the Majella National Park, a highly energetic place with spectacular views of the Mother Mountain, immersed and surrounded by unspoiled and fortunately protected nature. The farmhouse is under renovation and for a short time, for the period of accommodation, I live in a caravan. Here I am realizing my dream: to live without bills and to achieve food supremacy, also in connection with other people in the area with whom we share similar values. In my spare time I walk a lot, exploring these beautiful mountains rich in history and spirituality. By profession I carry out my activity in the woods as a Survival Instructor and Hiking Guide. My goal is to share this way of life to be a healthy testimony that a better world is possible and also depends on our choices. For your simple life experience, Renato awaits you and you are welcome!
