  • Description


    I am a Sociologist from Italy, who worked for womens rights abroad and Henrik is an enviromental ingeneer from Sweden. We met in Spain in 1999 and after many years travelling and living the city life we wanted to offer our three kids a different life style. Aurora is almost 12, loves reading, riding and be in the nature. Elias is 9 year old, loves baking, playing in the nature and growing vegetable and Alessio is 3 years old and loves helping in different tasks, playing with lego and playing with other kids.
    We are joyfully committed to harmonising our life with Nature and treading as lightly as possible in an “ecological journey” that is developing step by step. We run an organic farm where we grow olives, vegetables and fruits.
    We are passionate about travelling, organic food, local cooking and trekking.  I am vegetarian but not the rest of the family and we are non smokers.
