  • Descrição


    Hello, I'm Francesca, I'm 36 years old, I'm a friendly and positive person who would be happy to host people and help me with my community house project.

    I live on the edge of a small town called Atina (around 800 people), in an old country house, with a big garden, two dogs and a forest nearby. Atina is a very old town with lots of history, located in the Mainarde mountains around 500 meters above sea level.

    I grew up in Atina, and my family lives here for the last 300 years. In the last two years, I have renovated the old mansion that was abandoned, and now it is liveable, but there is always more to do. I have an architecture background and it is important for me to use sustainable and natural materials for the renovations.

    I am developing my vegetable garden according to the permaculture philosophy, and I am planting more trees and vegetables around.

    I have two dogs living with me, Lucio and Duccio, that are keeping me company and making the place happy and nice.

    My vision is to continue renovating the place, find more people that want to join the project, and in the future to have a self-sustained community. I'm always happy to have creative and positive people joining me. I am new on workaway, but have hosted here other people in the last two years.
    If you have some craft experience, you are more than welcome to come, teach me, help, and contribute with your knowledge.

    I have a small olive field nearby that will be harvested in November, so you could also participate in that if you come at the right time.

    I am also making some craftworks from Bamboo that are growing in the garden and would be happy to teach you about it.

    There is no wifi, but there is good internet reception through the phone.

    I'm quite flexible with the work, can do different things every day, we could work together, you could work alone, it will depend on the necessity.

  • Acomodação


    You would have a private bedroom but might need to share it in case there will be more volunteers.
    The shower is with a bucket, we have electricity and gas, so we can warm the water fast.
    In spring the temperatures at night are around 2-10 degrees celsius, but we keep the house warm with the woodstove.

    The town is beautiful, there is a lot of nature around for you to travel to, you could take the dogs for a walk, or enjoy the sun and peaceful energy around. During summertime, all the villages around come alive with a lot of events and Festivals, like theatre Festival, or Literature Festival and Music Festivals, like Atina Jazz, while during low seasons you can enjoy more tranquillity.
    You can reach the place with a bus from Cassino or Sora that are connected by train or bus to Rome and Naples.
