  • Description


    Hi! We are Mathijs and Gigi and live in the beautiful mountain area of South-Umbria on the border of Tuscany. We run a Biological Olive Farm consisting of mutiple buildings also with other accomodations. Our beautiful domain is 96 hectares big and consists of 7 hectares of Olivegrove, 4 hectares of Truffle-wood, 6 hectares of fields and the rest woodland. We are a (relativily) young couple ourselfs in our mid-30 and beginning 40's and love to host some cultural exchange and help us around the buildings, some gardening or help with harvesting and works on the olivegroves, or any other quality you might have. Our property is very sereen and tranquil. A place to get in touch with nature and live the real Italian livestyle.
