Hello everyone! We are Claudio and Elisa, a 38-year-old couple with many dreams.
Tired of the hectic routine of the modern society, in 2018 we quit our jobs, we bought an old camper (which still is our house) and we left our village looking for a different way of living, in harmony with Nature, animals and people, but first at all with ourselves.
The experiences we lived, made growing in ourself the wish to have our own piece of land, where we can put into practice the principles of self-sufficiency as much as possible. It is a very ambitious project, which also includes the construction of a ecological house, using wood, straw and clay.
A long journey brought us here, in our corner of paradise, in Abruzzo, in the center of Italy, near Vasto.
The land, of almost 3 hectares, is surrounded by olive trees and has a beautiful view of the sea and the mountains.
After 2 years as volunteers, now we are really happy to be hosts! We love the idea of sharing our dreams with travelers from all around the world.
The roads to follow our dreams is really long and every little help will help us to achieve it.

We spent the last few years studying and practicing the principles of permaculture, regenerative organic agriculture, biosinergic garden and bioconstuction.
The volunteers can learn and share with us how to start a self-sufficiency project based on these principles.
We will be really glad to share with you every our knowledge, as well as yours.
We can make jams with the fruits of our land, homemade bread and pizzas, spirits, fresh pasta, soap and much more
In this period the main help is the maintenance of the summer vegetable garden: weeding, serch bad insects and slugs, spray natural products, watering, collect water from the well, go to the neighbour's goats to collect their precious poo in order to have compost, ...
We also have to collect fruits to do marmalade and to dry them, seed the winter vegetables and take care of them, maintenance of the olives trees and other tasks of regular maintenance of the land.
We love to know other traditional meals, so we share with volunteers the tasks in the kitchen, as cooking and washing dishes.
We live in a camper, while volunteers can stay in caravan or tents.
The volunteers' caravan is old, but provided with electricity, heating and water.
The toilet is an outside compost toilet and the shower is outdoors (among the olive trees) during the summer, while during the winter you can use the little shower inside the caravan.
As we don't have any sewage system, we ask you to use only environmentally friendly detergents.
We live surrended by nature and often boars and foxes come to visit us.
In your free time you can enjoy the beautiful beaches near Vasto, which are 15 minutes away by car, or take wonderful walks on the Majella Mountain, just one hour away by car.
The village of Monteodorisio is only 3 minutes walking where you can find bars, restaurants and supermarkets.
We are looking for genuine people, who wants to share and looks to Nature as something wonderful to respect and protect.
We mostly follow a vegetarian diet, but occasionally we also eat meat.
We currently have only one cat, but as soon as we fence the land, we would like to have goats and chickens.
We don't have wi-fi
