  • Description


    Update 2020 : we search for short periods, 7 days is best choice.
    We are Massimo and Giovanna, both vegan. We own some land on mount Etna at 1.000 asl. Nearest town is 6KM away; the vulcano top is 11Km away.
    Our project is currently at an early stage, we have a mobile wooden house, a yurta and two small roulotte; we are setting up a food forest and a totally off grid area. There are currently no facilities, few electricity, a compost toilet, no running water. we are planting fruit trees and vegetables.
    English/French and Spanish spoken.
    VEGAN AREA, animal products in any food form are NOT welcome.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Experience the birth of a totally off grid area, including food and waste.
    Visit (and ski on) the highest active european volcano at 3.000asl and swim at the beach one hour later.
    Breath the energy of a living volcano and feel part of a self sustainig ecosystem.
    See with your own eyes how you can leave your job, sell your house if you have one, and live in symbiosis with mother hearth.
