  • Descripción


    We are Claudia, Emilio and Alvi.
    After many years of living in the city we decided to move to the countryside. "Ragazzi a Quattro Zampe" is the farm we run with our four-legged friends: our dogs, donkeys, ponyes, bunnies, guinea pigs, sheep, goats, geese, ducks and chickens, pigs, turtules... And we have a very valued helper that has been with us for over a year now: Patrizio. He will show you around and explain you all the things you need (and want) to know about animals.

    Our farm is a school-farm, which means that we run a little kindergarden and also host visits and workshops for schools and private visits, inviting kids and adults to experience contact with animals and nature. Special attention is given to people with disabilities. We also have fruit trees and a little vegetable garden.

    Help is needed in several areas:
    -with animals: cleaning the stalls, chicken coops, and cages, and eventually help with the areas outside (vegetable garden, minimal maitennance)
    -with kids: to play and practise English/Spanish with the kindergarden kids and our boy (2-5 years old range)
    -with less priority, but well appreciated, if you like crafts and DIY to help us improve and expand our structures for the animals (we have plenty of space and materials to work with!).

    We live in a separeate house just a few meters apart from your accommodation in which we host our guests and where we pass most of out time during the day (it has separate rooms, 2 bathrooms, big kitchen and a big common area).

    We speak Italian, English, French and a little Spanish. We are easily accessible from Terme Euganee station and there is a bus service.

    We need help all year round, so come and meet us!

    You will most likely end up learning Italian, and you'll enjoy authentic Italian dishes.
    We are located in the countryside where you can explore beautiful natural parks (Colli Euganei), castles, towns and rivers in the surroundings, and you can easily travel to bigger cities such as Padova, Venice, Treviso, Ferrara, Vicenza, Verona... And even visit the Dolomites during your days off.
