I'm living in an ancient rural farmstay (with 16 hectares) located in Turi, in Bari province, trying to develop our dream project (create a cultural hub for events, workshops, cultural exchange, natural practises etc.)
I'm spending this time restoring the main farmhouse into a welcoming place to live and to relax.
I'm really interested in art, photography and videomaking!

Our place in particular is a very quiet spot of land near the main town. You will have the chance to relax, work in the wild nature, explore our region and if you want also be part of our family and friends.
You will join a very fascinating region of Italy that is a melting pot of influences, with a huge number of medieval towns and cities, museums and ancient ruins, a really interesting variety of different arts.
We can also show you hidden seaside spots: we are located mid-way between the Adriatic and Ionion coasts and we know fabulous beaches on the two seas (only know by local people!).
You will be glad to taste our typical italian food too, and we are quite good cooks! ;)
We are needing help to manage the renovation.
We did a lot of work like painting, cleaning, minor decorative repairs, but we always need help for the general maintenance of the house (help with the animals - dogs, cats, geese, chickens).
The work will change depending on the priority and the season. As example during the summer season we are busy in harvesting cherries, but we also have wineyards.
We stared also an autosufficient vegetable garden project.
Any produce from the farm and the vegetable garden will not be sold to the public and is just for our own private consumption.
We really would like to host openminded people, kind, passionate, creative, with initiative and world caring.
Important note: we are always looking for a BUILDER or CARPENTER that will help us building a swimming pool (not so easy to find :) !
