  • Description


    Hi everyone!
    I'm Gabrielle (46) and I am here to talk a little bit about myself and to tell you some stuff about this magic place and the vision I have about it.

    I'm a musician and I love to play with friends or by myself. I learned how to play the "tabla drum" at India and I know how to play drums too. I like to do physical exercise too (I go running four times a week and do box training). The contact with nature is very healthful and important for me, that's why I decided to start building this place ten years ago.

    I decided to make an European Union eco project about making structures made of natural elements such as stone, wood, glass, earth. This project is about creating a cultural center between art and nature , farming, natural lifestyle and free time for the people that passes here (doesn't matter the time they decide to stay).

    I lived in India for so many years, so I am open to all kind of good and sane exchange. Cultural exchange for me is about sharing ideas (art, ways of living, good stories). My way of living is very basic but, at the same time, with all the comodities a person needs for basic life. People here can do what they want, the only thing I ask is to respect the peace and equilibrium of the place.
