    WE ARE CURRENTLY LOOKING FOR SOMEONE from 8 AGOUST - to beginning of october (minimum one month)

    Ciao!! We are a big family originaly from Napoli, trying to live happy ,sustainable and in great contact with nature in a magical valley! My parents bought this place 32 year ago, and slowly made it the little paradise it is now!
    We are trying to get to be completely self sustainable , and we are almost there! We have solar panels, there is a big spring that gives us great water, we use wood to keep warm but only from dead trees(we don’t cut any alive trees!) there is an organic vegetable garden, we make wine ,olive oil and honey, lots of jam and delicius other things!
    There are happy chickens , donkeys and horses, a dog and some cats!
    We also use wild plants and flowers to do different things, like herbal tea, natural cosmetics, natural medicine and delicious salads!!!
    We practice biodynamic agriculture!
    We love to eat, and spent time in the kitchen, making all sort of food! we love pizza and Marcello makes the best pizza you will ever try! We like to play music, but mostly we love to dance! We love to drink wine and talk about life! There is a beautiful natural pool where we go everyday for a little dip in the summer! You can walk for hours and just be by yourself in nature, and you can see lots of wild animals !
    We like the idea of being healthy and try to have a good diet, mostly vegetarian but sometimes we eat also meat and fish if local.
    There is much more to say, but I would love to say it face to face in a video call where we can see if we are a good match and we could have good time together!
    If you want to see more pictures you can check our istagram page-ask me for the link
    MINIMUM STAY 1 MONTH!
