    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You can learn Italian (if you are not), how to run a little farm and for sure to know our land, especially mountains (Germano is an expert). We both speak english.

  • Help


    We both work in the next city and that's why we'd need help to run the vegetable garden and everything around it plus little works for the house. Germano's father is daily there but it's not enough.

    we 'd like volunteers to share our daily duty: the help as well as the free time. No one who counts hours. It can happen to help one entire day such as to have one entire free day. Don't call us if you want to live your time here just closed in your room.

    Abruzzo is really beautiful and we are very close to Rome, so in your free time you can go to the beach (1 hour travel) or up to the mountain or visit Rome and the surroundings.
