  • Description


    If you are looking for a project where you can actively participate in the creation of a sustainable self-supporting Lodge...come and work with us, have fun and enjoy " La Dolce Vita"

    Ciao, we are Linda (54) and Gianni (58) and we live in the beautiful Cilento National Park. Linda is from Germany and lives in Cilento since 2004. Gianni, born and raised in the Netherlands escaped from the Dutch matrix 4 years ago to live with Linda.

    We are on a remote location in Cilento National Park between Agropoli and Casal Velino about 15 km from the coast. Located at the natural reservoir Alento on a plot of 2.5 ha with 350 olive trees, small vineyard, fruit trees and lush vegetation.

    Our project is to create a self-sufficient Lodge, where guests can harvest their own fruits, vegetables and herbs for their daily needs. A quiet and peaceful place in the middle of nature where one can experience many aspects of a self-sufficient life.

    The last two years we worked on improving living space and took care of the land. We now produce a beautiful biological olive oil. Now we are focussed on improving the food supply, as much as possible based on permaculture principles.
    We just finished building two comfortable studio’s (45m2 each).

    We live and work for and from our land.

    Please note:

    *️️️ We are on a remote property. The village Cicerale is 4km walk up-hill.
    *️️️ There are no immediate residential neighbours, so our place may feel too isolated for some people, but we love the tranquillity of it. Most helpers would prefer to come with a partner or friend.
    *️️️ If you are new to Workaway and have no references, please state clearly what your expectations are.
    *️️️ The accommodation is tiny so we generally don't have more than two people at any time (unless we have helpers who travel with a mobile home). It probably best suits couples or two friends.
    *️️️ If you are traveling with a van/camper please state the dimensions of it.
    *️️️ If you are from outside the EU, your own insurance is required.
    *️️️ Please indicate what skills you have or your ability to do demanding physical labour.
    *️️️ Space is very limited so sorry that we cannot host families or people without the skills we need or people for less than 10 days.

    This season we focus on gardening around the two studio's and designing our food forest. So bring in some green fingers. If you are more a kind of builder you can work with us on building outside-living constructions e.g. barbeque, firepits, plungepool.

    We strive to give you the opportunity to finish your own project in the time that you are with us, but that depends on the size of the job of course. Our aim is to offer you a nice experience . We want helpers to enjoy their time with us to make life-long friends .

  • Hébergement


    We offer a private two-bedded wooden chalet with bathroom. Breakfast and at least one main meal will be provided. We currently have one kitchen, so mostly we cook and eat together. We love cooking with fresh food and will treat you well
    When available we can host you in one of the studio's.

    Living on a remote location means that public transport is limited So without your own transport you have to realize that your kind of stuck here. When we go to town or market we can always take you with us.

    The Cilento is a beautiful unspoilt green part of Campania with fantastic coastlines, rich in history and of course the Mediterranean food culture. This authentic piece of Italy with its good weather offers a wide range of outdoor activities including trekking, ziplining. swimming, cycling, boat, diving and fishing trips. The air is fresh, the scenery beautiful, the food delicious and healthy!
    From the Agropoli trainstation Salerno, the Amalfi coast, Paestum, Pompei and Napoli are easily accessible.
    Ideally you would have your own transport since we are located in the country. Hours of work can be negotiated to give full days/long weekends off.
