  • Description


    Hi we’re Giulia and Dante living in the countryside in Soriano nel Cimino.
    We moved here to live in a simpler and more peaceful way, dedicating to the self-production of what we eat and use commonly. Anything that we do is for our self consume and a bit for friends, we work as artisans not as proper farmers.
    We live in a white house with green windows, there are a home garden, olive, hazelnut, chestnut and various fruit trees, all shared with 3 dogs, three cats, chickens and wild birds.
    We enjoy sharing, playing guitar, singing, cooking, hiking and swimming at the lake.
    We’re very active in the area with peasant, artisan and artistic associations.
    We’re looking for someone (one person or two)to share the harvesting and management work in the periods of olives, hazelnuts and chestnuts and who takes care of feeding the animals and taking care of the vegetable garden and plants in some periods when we stay away few days for help.

    The house for workawayers is indipendent, with its own kitchen and bathroom and it have its own entrance door, so you can have also your privacy.

    We prefer to eat all togheter but the place for workawayers has its own kitchen too. So if you prefer you can must take things from the growgarden or we can find a way to do every meal togheter. We ‘ll sure find togheter the best way to make anyone feel at home.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    My house is 3km from Soriano nel Cimino, in the countryside in an isolated but not lost place.
    Having your own car is certainly advantageous to be able to spend the day out or simply move around and have more autonomy, but a few hundred meters from home you can take trains or buses that lead both to Rome and Viterbo, having a good time in various nearby villages .
    The places of cultural and landscape interest are endless in the area, from medieval villages and famous historic centers, to paths on the Cimini mountains and via Francigena (paths that can be reached directly from home).
    it is possible to spend relaxing days among the lakes of Vico and Bolsena, waterfalls and woods.

    These are a pair of interesting sites and their distances from home:
    -Waterfalls chia 3km
    -Faggeta 5km
    -Bosco sacro Bomarzo 5km
    -Viterbo 15 km
    -Lago di vico 15km
    -Orvieto 30km
    -Lago di Bolserna 30k m
    - Roma 80km
