  • Description


    Hello, my name is Daniele, my intention is to live connected to Nature, to be more self-sufficient and to enjoy every aspect of the beauty that surrounds us.
    I practice many difference arts in order to become more and more complete. Therefore there are always many projects going on, regarding self sufficiency, or health of the spirit and the body.

    My place is surrounded by olive trees, therefore October is harvesting season. I produce bio-dynamic extra virgin oil in a stone mill. The rest of the year, we follow the seasons, collect fruits and plants, transforming them, taking care of the vegetable garden and also working leather in my atelier. I'm a master of leather, I used to produce shoes, bags, belts, carpets and much more. Now I'm more focused on living in nature but little by little we are reorganizing the atelier.

    We enjoy all forms or art. I play guitar, and I often like to play and sing with friends around the fire in the evenings. Some friends have similar projects in the surrounding, therefore we often collaborate and many travelers are also passing by, sharing the family spirit.

  • Accommodation


    The place is quite simple, there is one big room divided in two parts, for sleeping there is a trailer set outside the house.

    The toilet is a compost toilet, and there is the possibility to shower downtown where my leather atelier is.

    I eat mostly vegan, mainly from the vegetable garden or the local market, we avoid industrial food.

    There is limited WiFi thanks to hotspot connection with my telephone

    Spirit of adaptation is needed, but once you feel connected with nature everything seems flows easily.
