  • Description


    Hello everyone!!!
    We are located in a forest in the northern region of Umbria, 8 km from the town of Pietralunga. The land includes 23 hectares of woods, fields and small streams, at an altitude of 650 m.
    Nature is all around the house, it is easy to meet many wild animals and there are beautiful walks to do.
    My name is Antonella, I am 63 years old and I have lived in this house since 1988. With my ex-husband we decided to raise our two children in a natural environment, growing some of our own food in the garden and fields. I am a vegetarian and vegan cook with more than 30 years of experience (but I am not vegan and vegetarian, I don't eat meat but I do eat fish sometimes), I am qualified as an educator, and passionate about sailing, crafts, gardening and farming. All my interests and activities are linked by the common thread of education, pedagogy and art.
    We have always hosted friends, travelers from around the world and people in need for short and long periods, engaging in a mechanism of exchange and mutual aid.
    My children are often traveling or living abroad and always return with friends and new acquaintances.
    Our home has always been open to welcoming people and new cultures.

    Ciao a tutti!
    Ci troviamo in un bosco nel nord della regione Umbria, a 8 km dal paese di Pietralunga. Il terreno comprende 23 ettari di boschi, campi e piccoli ruscelli, ad un'altitudine di 650 m.
    La natura è tutta intorno alla casa, è facile incontrare molti animali selvatici e ci sono bellissime passeggiate da fare.
    Mi chiamo Antonella, ho 63 anni e vivo in questa casa dal 1988. Con il mio ex marito abbiamo deciso di crescere i nostri due figli in un ambiente naturale, coltivando parte del nostro cibo nell'orto e nei campi. Sono una cuoca vegetariana e vegana con più di 30 anni di esperienza (ma non sono vegana e vegetariana, non mangio carne ma mangio qualche volta il pesce), sono qualificata come educatrice, e appassionata di vela, artigianato, giardinaggio e coltivazione. Tutti i miei interessi e le mie attività sono legati dal filo conduttore dell'educazione, della pedagogia e dell'arte.
    Abbiamo sempre ospitato amici, viaggiatori da tutto il mondo e persone in difficoltà per brevi e lunghi periodi, intraprendendo un meccanismo di scambio e di aiuto reciproco.
    I miei figli sono spesso in viaggio o vivono all'estero e tornano sempre con amici e nuove conoscenze.
    La nostra casa è sempre stata aperta all'accoglienza di persone e nuove culture.
