  • Description


    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.

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
