    Description

    When this project started in 2016, we had just been offered the opportunity to give a new life to a once abandoned beautiful little forest village on the slopes of the Paggaio mountain. We wanted to renew this once very lively place to offer space for cultural and social exchange. This place is paradise on earth - we just had to awaken it. And we did ! Thanks to our friends and wonderful volunteers, we now are in charge of 7 wooden guest houses and a wonderful place to host events and travellers from all over the world.

    We are now waiting for you its new adventures ! Its guests (travellers and volunteers) are the ones who give live to our place and, as any living place, it needs to be taken care of.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    As we are located at a very historical place and as I'm living here already my whole life and know a lot about the local history and the history of Paggaio mountain, I'm eager to teach you about it.

    Help

    I will need help with construction and maintenance tasks on the wooden houses such as oiling the wooden bars of the houses. General help in the garden like cutting the lawn. Maybe some help on the project's website. We have one pony, 5 dogs and one cat and we are always open to have new animals so I'll also need some help with taking care of all the animals. I'm also open to your project ideas.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    The place is in the middle of the nature, so all kinds of activities connected to hiking and exploring the nature around are possible. The sea down is also not too far away. I can take you there if I have time. I'm mostly managing this place on my own. We have often guests who are staying in the wooden houses, so I'm busy with taking care of them and have only little time to do work outside. For this I need you.
    I would volunteer for September, October and November.I would prefer ages, from 30 to 50 years.

    I look for true volunteers with sincerity and love for the mountain. I'm not interested in tourists I already have enough

    Please allow future volunteers to be confident about their participation and not to cancel it, as problems with proper management of residence occur.
