  • Description

    Description

    In our house you will be greeted by Marco, Cristina, and little Nina.
    We believe that happiness is real only when shared, so we will give all of us to those who have the pleasure of staying with us. We love being together and we love knowledge and the deep understanding of ourselves that comes through relationship and direct experience.

    We are educators and trainers in the game of life and we use tools such as permaculture, yoga, aerial fabrics, crafts, music and massage to enjoy ourselves and know more deeply ourselves.

    we run a Bed & Breakfast with around one hectare of land planted with olive trees, fruit trees and vegetable gardens. Our project is to create a school where you can learn to be happy, healthy and to live sustainably on this planet.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    In our family we have joined together the italian cultural heritage with the south-american andinian wisdom (Cristina was born in Perù) so you can learn how to unite and integrate diversity in yourself and in your family.

    You can learn Permaculture (if you want to stay 3 weeks or more we can also provide you a PDC course, cause we are certified Permaculture teacher's), cooking, DIY products (soaps, cleaning products, bread, pizza, fermented food or other things that we cannot do but that we can learn together).

    Meditation, body work and shamanic tools to live free and happy.

    This year we have already fixed the volunteering periods.
    We call them "21 Love days". It is a period of 3 weeks where we deeply know each other. This is our way to sanctify each relation and each experience we live here.
    Starting from this year (2019) we will keep a blog with all the stories related to the "21 love days" experiences.
    In each period we accept maximum 3 volunteers.

    Next periods:
    Seed the Future 2-22 March
    Spring Voice 15 April - 5 May
    Inside the Sun 3-23 June
    Summer Heart. 8-28 July

    Feel free to write us for longer or shorter period of time.

    In each period works and activities will vary. Some of them will be:
    - Pruning of olive and fruit trees (even if for you is the first time we have time to learn it together)
    - Design and creation of new gardens (using the permaculture design)
    - Sowing and reproduction of plants
    - Maintenance and improvement of existing allotments
    - Land artworks
    - Eco-structures

    You will stay in the B&B house. We live in the nearby house. We have an inspiring big tavern with private toilet and kitchen with sofas and air mattresses. There will be maximum 3 volunteers each period and you will share the tavern. It's quite big (120 m2) so everybody will have enough space!
    Meals will be fresh, local and mainly vegetarian and we will enjoy cooking and eating together!

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We love to be honest and clear first of all with ourselves and with others. We also believe that relation is the key for every important experience. Ask us everything you think or need and we will see if it is in harmony with our family life.

    The house is in the countryside and it's two kilometers from the sea. You can borrow one of our bikes and discover the beauty of the sunrise at the beach or the social life of the town. If you have a car or other self transport there are plenty of beautiful places to visit in the mountains that surround us!
