    Description

    We want to realize a self sufficient life in a really wonderful place, surrounded by the wild nature, close to a river and under the majesty of Majella massif in Archi (CH) area.

    The nature gave us this chance, the Big Mama delivered us this blessed place with fields full of fruit trees, Bamboo field, beautiful olive trees and many forest.

    We are restoring an old ruin with sustainable materials

    Just for mechanics and metal, paint, art lovers, we have 40 vintage cars to take in pieces to have back the rare mechanics parts and transform the car body into work of art!

    One of our projects is restore a four hundreds years old oil mill inside our house, one of five existed in Italy.

    Everything need to be cleaned, treated and enjoyed with care and love.

    So, there are many works to do, respecting the nature time and space... and of course there are many things to enjoy and share...
