    Description

    Hello travelers! Thank you so much to all, for the help, for the experiences, for this year we could'nt host more people. We're full of gratitude, see you on 2021!!! Enjoy your life and travels!
    this is a place to simply be. A "cascina" in the high hills in the south of Piedmont, overlooking the Alps, nature, woods, life ..... The project is to create, with the help and creativity of everyone, a place to fully experience the miracle that is life. In this place life is lived with respect for people, for nature, for animals, for what surrounds us. Feet on the ground, hands in the ground and head in the clouds !!! We're Paolo, Lorena and Giovanni. Our personal thought is that we can not change the world, we can not save the planet (it's saved by itself, it's strong !!!), but we can change ourselves, live with joy and fun, using consciousness in what we do and being part of the wonderful circle of energy of the universe. If you share these principles, you are welcome. In this place you will learn how to orient yourself in a forest, collect,cut and chop wood, collect products in the forest (mushrooms, chestnuts and wild fruit) observe wild animals, learn how to work wood and create objects, build a tree house, make a basket, grow vegetables in the garden in a natural way, collect seeds, work with stone, dry fruit and vegetables, prepare preserves, make bread .......
    We ask you to stay here at least 3 weeks, minimum time to get to know the place, get settled in and get in touch with the people who pass by here. IF YOU DO NOT HAVE 3 WEEKS AVAILABLE, PLEASE DO NOT CONTACT US,THANK YOU.
