  • Description


    Hi! we are an italian family of four people: me, Valentina (36 years old), Giuseppe, my husband (48), and our children Sole (aged 7 years old) and Alma (aged 3 years old). We live in countriside, surrounded by Nature, in a beautiful land called Tuscia, in the north of Lazio region. In particular, we are 10 minutes from Bolsena lake, the biggest lake in europe of volcanic origin. Our land is really rich of Beauty, there are a lot to explore! we're grateful to live there. We're not from here, but just we choose to live in this wonderful rural land and create our family. Anyway, we are 30 minutes, from Viterbo and just over an hour from Rome. We are also very near to Toscana region. We have a farm and manage six hectares, in which we have planted many different fruit trees, many of them of ancient variety, we grow also vegetables , than we have olive trees, from wich we obtain organic olive oil, we have a dozen of beehives, so we produce also honey and other products of bees. Finally, we have about a hundred chickens, to produce eggs, a horse, a donkey, four (very kind!) dogs and dozens of cats.
    Our property is divided into 2 hectares where there is our farmhouse with all animals, and 4 hectares (in the same countriside, but far almost 5 minutes from our home) where there are plantation and a beautiful natural landscape represented by a riparian zone: so, there is a permanent stream protected by many forest trees; here we put a charming tiny home of 32 mq in wich you can stay and supply all the essential you need to feel comfortable like at home. Please only notice that at the moment the system of water heating is out of working, even if we think is not a big problem, since summer is coming! Anyway, if you need of some hot shower, you can of course to get it in our home!
    As you can understand, we have a lot to do in our small, but very busing farm, starting with the childrens! We ask some help, above all around our home: there is a lot to do in the care of our "garden", now, is more selvatic, and I'd love to clean up and arrange the garden around our home, included preparing the backyard destinated to grow vegetables for the family (anyway not harvesting products destinated to market, since for this we have a regular worker). Maybe, if you have some manual abilities it would be great, for creating something together, for example, we started, some time ago, to build a ride rod for our horse -and also the donkey!-, but we coludn't finish it due to lack of time! we are mainly looking for families with children to have a full sharing of experience, but of course we are open also to single workaway or in pairs! We can host in the mobile home from one up to four people. We'd love to share our meals, especially if you are, like us, lovers of good food and let us know some typical dishes of culinary tradition of your country, we would greatly appreciate this, above all if we find some occasion to prepare meals togheter! theese moments of sharing are very full of richness for us. We prepare many traditional meals, and we do the most delicious pizza cooked in the wood oven (if you have experience in the building of a oven in raw clay we would be vary glad to learn about it!). I'm passionate about pastry.
    We speak english not fluently, for this we are happy to practicate if you come from a country of anglosaxon language, but I speak spanish good enough and a bit of french.
    Of course, we'd like to meet also other italian people from other regions of Italy to share traditions of our beautiful land!
    Last, but not least, we'd appreciate if you show a natural positive inclination toward the children, to create moments of experiential learning of foreign languages and cultures for them.
