  • Description


    My name is Luisa, Luna Celeste, I am a woman who decided to change my life! I used to work as an architect, but since I returned in 2009 from a wonderful and long international cooperation experience in Ecuador I decided to dedicate myself to holistic life.
    I fell in love with a piece of land and forest in the mountains and decided to move there every spring summer to detoxify from urban Milanese life.
    Life in the mountains is not easy alone with a dog and a cat, and I am a sociable person who loves community life so I invite you to come and visit me and share knowledge and skills in caring for Mother Earth, answering the call of this land that cries out to be cherished with love.
    At the moment in my beloved piece of land you'll find:
    A small volontary house in the neighboring village, 800 meters from the center of the ecological camp where i live, with all the facilities of a humble but lovely rural house: electricity, hot water, kitchen, bathroom, living room and a rest room.
    If you prefere, in the ecological camp where I live you can put your tent and enjoy of a deep contact with nature. There you'll find the former barn where I live, totally off-grid, with a loft, an outdoor kitchen, an electricity generator, and a storage room. Outdoor composted toilets and showers with a wood boiler for hot water so you can enjoy washing up while looking at the forest. A summer yurt for collective times. Here are welcome campers and caravans, as well, if they can make it over the rural path into the camp.
