  • Description


    I am Enzo, I moved to Sardinia last year, after too many years in Milan, working as a mechaninc. I live in here alone, but I have many friends all around. I started to life a new life in the Amazing countryside, close to the nature. I have a nice house, an appartment that I rent and a huge garden, which is mostly filled with olive trees, but also with fruit thees and a little vegetable garden. I have a cat, three dogs (one big, one medium and a little one) and a fresian horse.

  • Help


    I need help with the harvest of the olives. I have around 200 olive trees, this year they are full of fruits and I need halp to pick all the olives up and take them to the olive-press. It's not necessary to have experience. You are also welcome if you want to help me with the animals: feeding the horse and cleaning the box.

    My house is outside the village, a very peacefull place, perfect if you want to practice yoga, meditation and take long walks in the county. Not far there are lots of beautiful beaches, some museum, the city of Oristano. In the village there are some busses to reach all those destinations, but if yuo have a car is much easier to move. I can lend you my bike.
