    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    we are an agriturismo on the appennins mountains,we have bees, goats, sheep, chicken, veg garden, we have plenty of customers from north of europe and north america in our farm stay, we speak german, italian and english, staying here is a good opportunity to learn languages.
    I can teach how to work with bees and goats, how to maintain a house, as well as electric or slumming.
    I have installed solar systems (photovoltaic and water solar) and I can explain how all this works.
    I have a salt water pool, a sauna and jacuzzi to be maintained, I can teach how to do this.
    living and helping in our farm is a mix of technology and tradition, we have a "almost" organic restaurant, we make our own pasta, bread, pizza, and traditional and innovative kitchen we can teach how to cook and organize a restaurant, we organize cooking classes.
