    Description

    We are an italian-argentinian family, Giulia Maxi and Maite (8 years) Last year we bought an old house next to Demonte that we are fixing, and we are living with our sheeps, goats and dogs. We also are part of a work cooperative called Germinale involved in a community work, dedicating to bio-agriculture and agro-ecology. We organize classes and workshops on felt, foraging. We've been volunteer in various occasions and we know that can be a unique opportunity. We'd like to host one person preferably female, who can help us taking care in the morning with Maite our daughter and who wants to experiencing our daily rushing country life. The place is really nice, up on the mountain, 900-1000 mt, in the Occitan valley not far from France and in summer till October is full of fiests sagre concerts and so on all around moreover the numerous sports to practice (rafting, riding, hiking, biking and a lots of others ing). English, Spanish and Italian spoken. For any question please just e mail us!
