    Hi there!
    My name is Danilo. My wife Silvia, our 4yo daughter Gea, our 1yo son Naga and I, are trying to set in the country. We have a 2Ha land between the small towns of Scillato and Polizzi Generosa, 30ks from the sea, and 25ks from the ski plants in Piano Battaglia, inside the Madonie Regional Park.
    We have bought this land in November 2017, and after a neverending bureaucratic process, we are finally going to build a house very soon. In the meanwhile, we are restoring a tiny caravan to host new friends.

    Our mission is long term, since we intent to reach selfsufficiency by producing our food and energy.
    There are tons of works to do, like fencing, projecting and preparation of vegetable gardens, watering plants, planting trees, finishing restoring the caravan, building a composting toilet and improving the look of this beautiful land we are settling in.

    The land is well served by paved road, it borders a small stream, and it is surrounded by green valleys and mountains.

    We speak fluent english, having spent nearly four years between Australia, New Zealand and Ireland.
    I also speak very good spanish (Silvia understand it, but she doesn't speak so well! :) ), and we both speak "schooly" French!

    In exchange for 4/5 daily working hours, we provide tent space (even tent, if needed), food (we are vegan and vegetarians, and we provide vegetables, rice, pasta, cereals, fresh fruit, seeds and so on, but non-vegetarian food is welcome, if needed), a composting toilet, music around the fire at night, walks and tours! Silvia is also a wonderful cook and she is happy to share recipes and secret techniques!!! :D

    Right now there is nothing on the land, exept from the unfinished house and Treves. We hope ti be ready ti host very sono!

    Looking forward to meet many of you, we wish you a wonderful life! :D

    Danilo, Silvia, Gea, and Naga.

    We are both travellers, and we have many stories to share. We love foreign languages, and we are currently studying Japanese. We like cooking, and we love sharing recipes and food!
