We are a couple from the Netherlands and we bought a house in Italy to escape the stress and make a new start in life.
Inside the house we are constructing 3 b&b rooms and in the garden we will be making space for two or three tents and very important a vegetable garden (an orto in italiano) and fruit trees etc.
We live in the appenine mountains near Bologna and Florence an incredibly beautiful and untouched part of Italy.
We are striving for self sufficiency, however that's still a long way off.
The garden which is in a hillside has been 'neglected' for years and needs a lot of cleaning and reshaping.
There is also an old wood oven which we want to restore, which is in pretty bad shape.
Since we haven't gaat an income yet, we can only offer room and boarding and a great stay in a part of Italy which is unique.
We are fun loving generous and welcome people who enjoy meeting up with guests and volunteers from all ages and backgrounds.
