I'm Angelo, im 24 years old and, when I'm not travelling I live with my father on the country side of Valnervia, the last valley before the french border. The house is located on a abbandoned olive trees forest 20km from the sea, to arrive you have to walk moreless 10 minutes from the parking and you can go to the nearest village on 15 minutes walking. We have moreless 150 olive trees, a little vegetable garden, bees, and usually two cats! As we travel often we can't take care of animals and make a big and great vegetable garden but for this reason we prefer to do projects that doesn't need to be cared all year long.
DIY and building projects

You will be able to practice italian, and on the little village near the house you could discover a tipical italian village in the mountains! The region is very beautiful and you could go trekking, go to the river, go searching for mushrooms, eat home made pizza...
I woukd like to have help to do different things, deppending on the period you come!
- cut and transport the wood for winter
- adjust the encluser all around the property because there are boars and wild animals that loves to come to eat vegetables!
- prune olive trees from february to April
- collect the olives on the harvest time ( moreless november)
- plant vegetables and take care of them
- Re build the stone walls
- cut the grass
If you have knowleges and you are motivated to do a project (for exemple eco construction... ) We are open to hear your ideas and why not to make them real!
You will stay in a private room with the wood heather for winter time, the bathroom and the kitchen are shared with us! We use solar energy so the hot water is only the sunny days but there is always the possibility to heath up water on the heather! The electricity also works with the solar panel so you can charge your phone with the usb cable but to charge things that use more watts you willl have to go to the village or I can ask someone to charge it at his house
We will provide the food, sometimes we will eat together, sometimes you could cook for you if you want
