    Description

    Our natural Ecovillage is located on the hills of Low Monferrato Astigiano Region and measures 35.000 squared meters. An old farm built in 1908 - (now being restored) - lies on the top of the hill, surrounded by a hazel-nutyard, a big wood, a biological garden and fields all around. The Village is a private property where some people live sharing the project of creating an ecological natural village where living is sustainable, slow, natural and happy. We are politically and religion free, while encourage people grow responsible, free and spiritual, following their natural, inner values.

    In SPRING-SUMMER-AUTUMN (from 1° March to 1° November) the project FREE HOLIDAY EXCHANGE is offered to boys and girls under 34 years, who want to make an work holiday in close contact with nature, in a pleasant and unspoiled, where prioritize relations with the plants, animals, forest, nature. We'll pay a little allowance agree in case of few extra hours of work (if you do more than 5 hours par day), only in the case we need more hours of work par day.

    For those who are eager to loosen the excesses and growing human relationships with others, often suffered in crowded places such as city and shopping centers, is the ideal vacation. In a place where the experience of loneliness becomes virtue and work a meditation, to be done in the service of a unique project in Italy and perhaps in the world. Who is to make this experience in fact collaborated in the creation of the unique naturist eco-village project on the planet; a place which contains the headquarters of a Naturist Association of Social Promotion, natural gardens for self-production of vegetables and jam, a naturist camping, a naturist spa area with stage of naked yoga, tantra, massage, ecc.

    To create and keep this reality alive, the works to be carried out are many and are divided into seasons. In the SPRING (March April May) we need maintenance work on the green and the structures, project construction of external artifacts (fences, wooden structures, painting) and restoration of the equipment to be prepared for the summer. In SUMMER (June July August) we need to manage the structure with daily routines, dedicated to cleaning, reception, Jacuzzi management, swimming pool management, various maintenance, management of the green. In AUTUMN (September October) the necessary works are the dismantling of the structure, the storage of the structures and some maintenance to prepare for winter. The daily work is 5 hours for 5 days in the spring/autumn and 5 hours for 6 days in the summer. Times and details of the activities are agreed with the individual workawayer from time to time. Timetables and instructions must be respected. In case of difficulty or if you need help, you should contact the manager of the activity.

    The programs will be awarded depending on the ability and/or opportunity and/or by drawing lots, depends on the moment, the amount of adhesions, the need of the structure. In addition, each participant sometime kitchen for all others in the group, lunch and dinner and cleans the common kitchen.

    The stay will be in mobile homes / caravans with one or two people and / or wood house from 2 to 6 people in summer. In spring (march, april, may) and in autumn (september october) the stay will be in one of the room of the bed & breakfast. The board and lodging, use of the pool and facilities is free for the entire period of stay, which must be at least 1 month, even up to 4 months.
