  • Descripción


    Hello, here are Mattias, Sam, and Lele!
    We are three friends, living together since half a year in what we would like to be a resilient, self-sustainable cohousing project!

    Lele is a real nature lover. She has always studied in the field of regenerative agriculture, permaculture, agroecology and social ecology. She is our “wild animal”. She is working part-time as a gardener and edible-garden designer for private properties around the area. She loves taking care of plants and people with very inclusive and friendly attitudes. She practices yoga every day, likes cooking and generally transforming food and loves dancing!

    Sam loves music and building. He plays guitars, sings, entertains others with his delightful music and his very funny jokes! He trains and runs nearly every day. He is the “sport animal”! He has always learnt by doing. Therefore, he is good at building with wood, renovating houses, creating small objects, repairing tools and doing any outdoor works. He is the best pasta chef in the house!

    Mattias just can’t stay by his own. He loves spending good quality time with others. He is definitively the “social animal” of the group! He would welcome anyone to enjoy together a glass of wine or just some talks! He works in a social farm close by. There they reintegrate socially disadvantage people into work and regular life through the work in agriculture. He is really active in many organizations, loves cooking good food, enjoys many different sports and outdoor activities.

    Together we share the living space as well as many common passions, such as running, hiking, going for a swim at the river, going out with local friends, visit local cultural or social events, eating together and collaborating on the land. At home, we would like to create a comfortable co-living space where people can express themselves the best they can in harmony with nature and the others.

    Lele and Mattias also work as volunteers for a local NGO founded by them with other 12 youths. This is a social and environmental organization which aims is bringing people back in contact with Nature. The association is looking after two urban areas where social urban gardens are slowly growing. There we organise a lot of different social events, workshops, cultural or practical activities, with kids, adults and elders.

    Intercambio cultural y oportunidades de aprendizaje

    With us you will live a real cultural exchange! We all come from different countries but we all grew up in the Italian country side. We have all experienced life in ecoproject in different part of the world then we came back to our roots and are now trying to start something together.

    We focus on learning and experimenting how to live according to a new regenerative paradigma while trying to stay connected to the surroundings. With us you will have time to have some interesting and entertaining conversation, learn how to build things, how to take care of plants and natural ecosystem, how to rethink and discuss whatever you have been taken from granted up to now.

    With us you will surely get to know the social environment around either going around with Lele chatting with farmers, or with Sam in cool bars or with Mattias who simply knows everyone in the area!

  • Alojamiento


    Our land is located in a very strategic place. It is right out of a small town called Anghiari, a medieval village in Tuscany. The house is between the old town center and the woods. You can easily reach us with a bus and a short walk down the hill.

    During winter months you will stay in a room in the main house and will share the toilet with Sam and Lele. The room can host maximum 2 people. The kitchen is shared between everyone. In summer months there is the possibility to stay in a tent on the land or in the room or in your own van! There is good WIFI connection, a laundry machine, and hot water.

    We mainly eat vegetarian. Most of the food we eat either comes from the land or from local farmers. We love sharing cooking and sometimes going out for a pizza or an aperitivo! We don't need to go shopping very often and when we do we share the costs.

  • Algo más...

    Algo más...

    Anghiari is one of the 100 most beautiful Italian village! It is a delightful Tuscan village built on top of a hill above the upper Tiber valley.

    Here there are often cultural and social events that bring the whole town alive. In the surroundings there are few rivers where we love to go for some freshness!!

    From Anghiari there are busses that bring you toward the main city, Arezzo, where you can get a train for many other italian cities (Perugia, Florence, Siena, Rome, Bologna...). From Arezzo to Anghiari it takes 1 hr by bus or 30 min by car.

    From our house you can easily walk to town where you find any shop and bars, go hiking on signed paths or cycle to the Tiber river.
