We're Mara and Fabrizio and we live at 800 meters above sea level, in an unspoiled, isolated and wild area with a fantastic view over the sea and the mounts.
We built our cob house at the top of Monte Sorbo, which is off grid, and we aim at achieving self sufficiency in every aspect of our lifestyle.
Help with Eco Projects
DIY and building projects
Help around the house
We can offer our knowledge of:
- building with natural materials
- foraging for edible wild plants
- living off-grid
This year your help is going to be needed to complete our cob house and other small structures with natural materials.
We can host you just in summer in a tent: we can provide our old one or you can choose to bring your own.
We have mattresses and bedding to make it really comfortable to sleep in the wild.
Since we are off-grid, we use rain water collected with lot of care, so we kindly ask you to use our soap, toothpaste, detergents, etc. that are safe for the environment.
The shower is at the open air and we use a compost-toilet close to the house.
The electricity is powered by 5 solar panels which are enough for the basic working tools, washing machine and few other appliances.
We're not vegetarians, but our diet basically is.
If you are not frightened of an off-grid rustic experience, we hope to meet you.
We live in an isolated area: the closest villages are San Buono and Liscia at 10 minute drive (1 hour walk) and there are very few daily buses driving to the city of Vasto and to the sea side.
The Majella mountain and the National Parks are at about an hour drive.
Limited internet access
We have pets
We are smokers
Can host families
Nature is all around us and you can easily find a place where to park your van and enjoy the beauty of living your own space while travelling.
