We are available to host people with a great soul and an open mind to share our dream: bring back to life our ancient home and the land that surrounds it, abandoned for many years, to create a cultural, magical and uncontaminated place with garden and animals.
Hi! We are Antonio and Luisa with our young children (7 years and 3 years). We are "Neorural": 8 years ago we left the city and put aside ours our professions as Journalist and Pedagogist to grow ourself and our children in the countryside, allowing them to discover nature and benefit from it and completely changing our lifestyle. We are working for food subsistence.
We love art, literature and music. But not only. We are passionate about old stories and antiques.
We respect older people and we believe that they are the greatest cultural value.
We like to converse, in a profitable way, with people and to explore different topics. We are convinced that it is not important to agree, but to welcome and accept oneself and the others, and why not, to question oneself.
We are part of nature and we live respecting it and taking care of it.
We live in an ancient and large house that is located above a small and picturesque forest, in the hills. We have the vegetable garden (biodynamic and natural cultivated), fruit trees, many of which are wild, as well as two sweets French horses.
Our property is located in the countryside on the edge of the historic center of a very nice country, cared for and inhabited by sunny and kind people. It is located in Piemonte, in the hills between Langhe, Roero and Monferrato (the wine area UNESCO): a few km from Asti and Alba (famous also for white truffle).
There is no traffic and in addition to the church, the bar and the library, there are many streets of dirt for walks and some impressive houses of architectural value to be admired. It is possible to admire castles and old church in the neighboring villages, within walking distance.
Our days are dynamic and we spend a lot of time in our house-farm, working hard but trying to respect our biological rhythms and above all giving space to the child needs of our children and accompanying them towards a harmonious development aware that we are all an example for them.
We do everything we can with our hands. We often experiment with "new jobs" and like to learn new techniques.
We often host friends at home with whom we carry out cultural projects and some related to pedagogy (Waldorf or Libertarian mostly)that we prefer for our children.
