  • Description


    Hi I am Luca, I grew up in England, my father is From Sardegna and so I decided to move here in 2020.

    I live in a town of around 8000 people. I live in my fathers family home where he grew up, sometimes my father is here and sometimes he is in England. We have a spare room with a double bed for guests.

    I have a small piece of land 3 minuets outside of the town, there I have planted fruit trees and olive trees, also we have some saffron. There are small projects to do and sometimes I need help, things like planting trees, irrigation, fixing fences and some other gardening stuff.

    The ultimate goal is to create a food forest with a real diverse choice of fruits, nuts and vegetables 🍏 🥜 🥕

    I am very laid back and open minded, I enjoy meeting new people from different cultures and am happy to exchange languages, I speak fluent English and am learning Italian still.

  • Accommodation


    I live in a house where there is a spare room with a double bed.
    I will prepare food everyday or we can prepare together, I try to buy as much local produce as possible.
    I enjoy to cook so we can prepare meals together or I can prepare for you. I don’t eat meat, my father does so when he is here there is sometimes meat being cooked.
    The supermarket is close to my house so you can buy any things you need there and also there are local fruit and vegetable vendors around the town.
