  • Description


    We are an Italian-Thai couple with a 3 years old child, Leo. We talk in english to each other and in Italian and Thai to Leo.

    Even though the base is in Milan, we stay most of the time in a house in the hills in the province of Piacenza, where we have a comfortable house and a garden. The village is called Verogna and there is a nearby river, a waterfall and like-minded people into veganism and permaculture, mostly during summertime. The village recently hosted a Sunshine Healing retreat with tens of people from all over the world.

    As a family we are not vegan but we choose organic food and we have our own small vegetable garden. We are non-smokers and we need a non-smoking volunteer.

    My background is into publishing, writing books and software programming. Also I have been trained in meditation, counselling, massage and a series of body/mind/soul practices. Jiab, the mother of Leo, is interior designer but since we had Leo she is not working. She is learning Italian and loves to try new recipes and to grow vegetables.

    We have Internet connection, warm water, good heating system, big kitchen, 2 bathrooms,
