  • Description


    Starting again in March .

    I opened my guesthouse in 2010. I work very hard to run it and keep the business successful, but I enjoy being and entrepreneur.
    The place is located in a small village in the italian countryside. Many of the houses next to it are abandoned.

    I am the only person that steadily lives here but many people come to help or visit from the closeby farmstay.
    If you want to come with a friend, PLEASE DON'T CONTACT ME. AT THE MOMENT I ONLY HOST ONE PERSON AT A TIME. So if you contact me, be sure that it is not a problem for you to be alone at times. Of course you will get to spend time with all the guests there.

    I am happy to teach any skill, that I know. I can also teach you Italian. There is also the added benefit of meeting lot's of interesting people from all over the world. Plus you will meet our lovely and interesting yoga teachers. You can learn a lot from them too. Sometimes we hold yoga related seminars , so you can also learn from that too.

  • Help


    At the moment we are restoring the old houses, therefore the help required is mainly construction tasks, such as cleaning old wooden doors, cleaning rusty railings, taking of old plaster. Work might be hard, but it is rewarding because you can see right away that you created, improved something. I offer dinner. And often there is plenty left from our big dinners with the guests, so you can also have lunch , unless you like to cook something for your self. You can prepare your own meals (in this area you can get by with a few euros to take care of your meals). In this area grocery shopping is not so expensive. In the little village next to Via Piana ther is a grocery store. There is also a discount supermarket in Sora where you can buy 1 kilo (2,2 pounds) of Pasta for 0,70 euro cents. Also at the local food market on thursdays you can buy very cheap fresh and local food.

    Minimum stay is one month, but longterm stays prefered.Also I prefer to host individual travelers. It just works out better for this project so we decided not to host couples or friends that come together. Thank you for respecting these terms. so if you want to come with a friend, please don't contact me. At the moment I only host one person at a time. So if you contact me, be sure that it is not a problem for you to be alone at times. Can you entertain yourself, or do you need fellow volunteers?

    If you want to stay in a place longer, please contact me.

  • Accommodation


    Accomodation is in rustic private room. The bathroom has a low ceiling and is outside, but it is completely functional. So far there is no heating in the room, so people who suffer a lot from the cold should only come from end of April to the end of September. In november it starts to become cold here and we don't have heating in the rooms. However many people didn't mind since it can get warmer during the day if the sun comes out. It becomes warm again in April.
