  • Description


    We are Francesca and Sergio with our joyful almost 4 years old baby.

    We have 3 hectares field 5 km from the town of Farnese, with 90 olive trees, some fruit trees, wood all around and a river at ten minutes of sloping walk.
    We are refurbishing an old building and harvesting olives, more of all.

    The field is off-the-grid, with solar electricity (for devices too), rainwater collector with sink and a simple compost toilet. We pass there the day but we still sleep in a town apartment, by now.

    Something about us.
    Francesca, i (will to have the time to) do artisanal works, like basketery and sewing; sometimes i also organize courses and other events.
    Sergio, i do organic extravergine olive oil, beer and vegetables. Before this country life i worked many years as copy editor for a publishing house.
    We are open minded, love diversity, very courious and love to learn from others. We try at our best to live in harmony and deeply connected to nature.

    We offer a place to stay and food for about 5 hours of help a day, 5 days a week. We welcome you as part of the family, for duties too, like cooking, washing dishes and cleaning.
    We are very careful about waste and ecology and we ask for the same attention, that it means for example save water as possible.

    We like to host people independent, dynamic, strong, able to express her/himself, peaceful and joyful... with sense of humor and autoirony if we are allowed to dream :)

    How to reach us: at the train stops of Montalto di Castro or Viterbo you can take a bus Cotral to Farnese. Please check timetable in advance.

    Autres infos...

    You can take a long walk in the wood, go to the river or visit ancient towns, archeological sites, museums and more...
    But with your own car because we have no time right now to go around and buses service does not work good.

    This is a straordinary land full of very ancient history and at the same time wild nature. We are sorrounded by woods ("Riserva Naturale Selva del Lamone") with waterfalls and pathwaysto archeological sites (Rofalco, Castro, Vulci); at 15 minutes by car from natural thermal water (and one hour to the best that is for us "Terme di S. Filippo") and beatiful waterfalls (es. Cascata del Salabrone) and lakes (Lago di Bolsena, Lago di Mezzano); 20-30 minutes - always by car - to ancient towns, like Pitigliano, Bolsena and Sorano; 30 minutes from seaside like Argentario and mountains Amiata.
    In this area there are also interesting local tiny museums ("Simulabo").
    Farnese in itself it's a very small town, but nice and usually welcoming.

    Attention: As already said up here, our area is beautiful but it is not easy at all to visit it without car. Moreover, it's some months we put all energies in building home and now also harvesting olives (plus child;) so we are really sorry at the moment we can't go around showing the sourrondings and in the evening we usually go to sleep early, so very spartan life. Often some friends pass by and we have some wine at the fire in the evening before coming back home... That's enought for us, think if it is for you too :)
