We are surrounded by woodland with beautiful walking paths, here are a sauna in a cave in the forest, a swimming pool, a vegetable garden and olive trees. We produce organic extra virgin olive oil, jams, spelt, honey, meat, vegetables, and everything we can for our own consumption and restaurant.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Living in the Umbrian countryside is an experience in itself, connecting with the pace of nature and breathe in the cultural traditions of the heart of Italy. We will share all our knowledge about growing and tending plants and animals, and the principles of organic farming, about italian food, and about living and working in an italian "agriturismo".
    Jennie has a passion for naturopathy, yoga, arts, creativity. Stefano for food, plants, tools, wood and fishing. We can help you learn and improve italian and introduce you to our beautiful region.

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    We offer a room in an apartment on the ground floor of our big farm house, where you will be by yourself or sometimes share it with our relatives who come to visit us in summer time. Regarding food we will probably mostly eat all together and sometimes workawayers will have to organise themselves, but ingredients are always provided and obviously you’ll have access to all our own products (meat, olive oil, vegetables, fruit, eggs...).
