    Calabria has got strong nature, two beautiful seas and beautiful mountains.

    You can go on the mountain in 30 minutes by car. You can go to the beach in 35 minutes (Sibari)

    You can learn how to fix a century old house reciclyng everything or how to manage an olive grove

    Morano Calabro is one of the most beautiful villages in south Italy at the foot of Mount Pollino. During your free time you can explore the old village or go hiking and trekking.

    You can go biking along the cycle path (Ciclovia Morano-Campotenese) built on the old railway line that passes through Morano

    You can also evaluate the possibility of settling permanently in Morano Calabro

    Food is not included, for this reason I ask only 15 hours each week instead of the normal 25-30. There is a shared kitchen that you can use to cook your own food

  • Aide


    Various tasks in an ecovillage project: give new life to old houses in the historic center of the town and work in a centuries-old olive grove

    Help in daily stuff (cook, clean, ordering home, etc)

    The help can be hard (for example wood transport for the stove).

    I inspire my project to the principles of ecology, recycling, reuse, DIY, little use of money, little use of plastic, use of creativity

    I ask 15 hours each week, at least two days off. These 15 hours are real, you will receive a plan when you sign each day the time you work. When you arrive at 15 hours, the rest of the week is free. If we go out of the town for helping, the time for the travel is not included in these 15 hours.

    I am not a smoker. I prefere people that don't smoke, and don't use drugs too.
    Sometimes we can drink a glass of wine togheter but just a glass.

    The minimum stay is a week. If you stay more then a week you are very welcome and the first week is a trial. After the first week, if everything is ok, you can stay all the time you want

    Sometimes I have to stay some days in another village, Vibo Valentia where you can follow me. The tasks in Vibo Valentia are mainly domestic. When I am in Vibo Valentia you have the possibility to visit beautiful beaches as Tropea, Capo Vaticano, Pizzo Calabro (see the pictures on google)
