    Hi there! My name is Misha. I am an enthusiastic and open minded person living off-grid.
    It's life off-grid in the mountains in the south of Sardinia inside a very beautiful and big park Sette Fratelli (the location at the map is wrong). Our small zone is called San Pietro Paradiso. I started this project in 2019. The beautiful land is more than 5 hectares, and the surroundings are filled with many different types of trees like eucalyptus, pine, oak (cork), almonds, etc; animals, water from the springs etc.

    The idea of this project is to create eco sustainable place, harmonic between nature and human, creating and improving forest garden.
    Here we do garden, work in the forest, work with the land, creating terraces, stone walls, do fences, build constructions and do very simple stuff. I also beekeeper so there are beehives here.

    I love mountains and nature. I focus on eco sustainable living, rural lifestyle, producing our own honey and food from planting and the forest as well as making natural products, growing bee families every year, organic farming, eco-constructions i.e. earth houses, wooden cabins, teepees, yoga, and wholesome living. There are dogs and cats here and they are part of the family. We are vegetarian here.

    It is an isolated place without electricity, public transport and with little mobile signal. We have water from the spring and we heat it for teas, cooking and washing when we need it. Solar panels, water heating system are also part of the plan and it will be in the future. Slowly here we will make life better, sustainable and in eco way.

    There is a lot of manual labour to do like clearing the base, big fence, prepare place for the cabins, create wooden or earth house, moving rocks, improving our water system, adjust the road, create or improve the garden, beekeeping, cork season, etc... It depends on the season!

    This part of Sardinia is very beautiful and also there are archeological sites here from Nuragic civilization and other periods. There are a lot of animals like Sardinian deer, wild boar, fox, rabbit, many types of birds, etc.

    08-09.2020 Now we cleaning the forest where needed and building a fence around 3 hectares of land.

    I speak Italian, Russian, English.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I can offer an experience of living in connection with nature and we can create our own experience together by learning from each other. You will be immersed and inspired by the forest and mountains and we will take care of each other.

  • Help


    Manual rural chores; from practical labour to creating an earth or wooden home; help in the garden; beekeeping (when it is a season). Sometimes it's a hard work. Rather than a farmwork environment, you learn to adapt yourself to wild natural living.

    Updated 08.2020-10.2020. Our main work this period is create a fence around 3 hectares of land, cleaning place near the fence.

  • Accommodation


    A tent. It's good if you have your own tent or hammock, or we can always find solution. We are completely off-grid here. Also sometimes we go in a rural house of family's place in the area. We can take a shower there, wash clothes. We provide simple vegetarian (almost vegan) food and honey everyday.
