  • Description


    Hello, I am Alessia, an Italian 34 old girl with a beautiful project to be realized in val Tanaro, Piedmont.


    A tiny town in a nice valley at 800mt , surrounded by beautiful mountains and less then 1 hour from the sea. Nice trekking, bike routes and climbing walls in the area. Plus we are 1 and a half hour distance from Finale Ligure , a biking/climbing paradise.
    Not suitable for city life addicted! The area is very quiet and the town very small, thought in summer the town will hosts tourists and some nice event too.


    I have some old family houses to renovate, and a land where I want to start little organic farming (with Synergistic gardening) in order to achieve (at least partially) self-sufficiency. In the land I'd also like to create a nice social area, to relax, eat together, play music etc.

    April and May main tasks: seeding, cleaning and painting houses, take care of the field


    Shared dormitory in my house. The house is 3 km far from the town center. I can drive you there of course, but there will be also a bicycle . I will try to be there most of the time and share meals with you, but sometimes I will be out and I'll leave stuff for you to cook in the kitchen.
    I like to make home made bread and pasta, and I can teach you. Also I'll do some cheese making. I'd love you to cook some typical dish from your country. Starting from June we will have our own fresh vegetable from the farm :)


    If you are an experienced sport climber we can go climbing together!

    If you have some particular skills, e.g yoga , massages, bakery, natural healing or ...whatever, tell me because I'd like to learn a lot of stuff from you.

    If you are a professional in some field (like the ones mentioned above) and you want to try to make workshops or retreats, we can talk about it and see if we can organize something.

    If you have experience with farming that would be great. Also people with a building skills are welcome.

    I prefer people over 22.

    PS. I have been a workawayer before and had beautiful experiences with my hosts so I hope i can do the same for you!
