    Description

    Hello !
    We are located in the woods in the north of the Umbria region, 8 km from the village of Pietralunga. The land includes 23 hectares of woods, fields and small streams, at an altitude of 650 m.
    Nature is all around the house, many wild animals are easy to meet and there are wonderful walks to do.
    My name is Antonella, I am 58 years old and have lived in this house since 1989. With my ex-husband we decided to raise our two children in a natural environment, growing part of our food in the garden and in the fields. I am a vegetarian and vegan cook with more than 30 years of experience, I am qualified as an educator, and passionate about sailing, handicraft, gardening and cultivating. All my interests and activities are linked by the common thread of education and pedagogy.
    We have always hosted friends, travelers from all over the world and people in need for short and long periods, undertaking an exchange mechanism and helping each other.
    My children are often traveling or living abroad, and always come back with friends and new connections.
    Our home has always been open for welcoming people and new cultures.

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    Generally when we have guests who stay for a long time we arrange them in a small independent house and it is composed of an attic with a bedroom and a terrace and on the ground floor a small kitchen with a bathroom.
    In the case that this small house is occupied we have rooms in the main house with a shared bathroom.
    In the main house there is a pantry where we keep fresh food and preserves and to which guests have free access. We eat together in the main house and we don't eat meat.
