Olbia/Tempio

This is a family home is in the middle of a forest. We are in the north east of Sardinia in the middle of the Gallura countryside. The nearest village, Abbiadori, is 4 km away. Other landmarks are San Pantaleo 5 km away and Arzachena 10 km. We provide two bicycles to move around the area. Whoever comes here will help us in the fruit orchard, with pruning in the forest and cutting firewood, with daily maintenance, but also in the preparation of bread and pizza, harvesting fruit and making jams. We are also rebuilding the dry stone walls that border the land. Any kind of help is welcome. We can host only in spring and autumn. We mainly need help in the mornings.
We are running a small, openminded + openhearted spiritual and ecological center based on the mystic path of sufism. Our centre is situated in a beautiful, quiet valley 4 km from the coast, near the friendly village San Pantaleo (Olbia), all in walking distance. The area is characteristic for its fantastic granite rock formations and evergreen lush vegetation. There are beautiful hiking paths. We have many sunny days, lots of wind, in summer it’s hot and in winter quite wet and cold. We grow olives and vegetables, all organic, in part following permaculture principles. We organize spiritual and ecological meetings and seminars. We offer daily morning meditation and weekly evening gatherings with music and singing. We welcome friendly people who are interested in spirituality and an eco-sustainable way of life in close contact with the elements, and who plan to stay for at least 3 weeks. Besides the work with the olive trees (pruning and fertilizing the trees, harvesting and preserving the olives) and the vegetable garden (digging, fertilizing, seeding, weeding…), there are different other activities for you to join. Some are rather physical, e.g. creating paths, building stone walls, cutting and chipping wood, uprooting, getting thorns out of the ground, shredding the cut bushes and branches, cutting grass. Sometimes we need help in the kitchen (we cook good vegetarian food) and house, especially during seminars. We offer accommodation in tents, offseason in caravan, cabin or house. At times volunteers might need to share a room with each other. We love living, working and meditating in the beautiful, strong nature of Sardinia and we are happy to share this way of life with others.
Our horse stables is family run. We are in Padru area in the Province of Olbia Tempio. Our interest is focused on respect for and the welfare of our animals. During the season we host many families with children, and we organize rides for children, tourists and experts. We have 17 horses among which there are also donkeys, ponies, goats, sheep, rabbits, pigs, chickens, dogs and cats. The jobs to be done here are very varied, the care of animals (feeding and cleaning out), in the vegetable garden, accompanying and assisting with rides. Also building dry stone walls and new enclosures for animals. Jobs in the woods (preparation of firewood for winter) are also part of our days. Our helpers can learn how to rear animals by nurturing their growth, we will be pleased to teach you everything we know about the garden and the plants we grow. We have a house for you, where everyone can find their space. We hope that you have love for animals and nature and also have the ability to work well in groups. We speak German and Italian very well. Every day we take two meals together: breakfast, where we discuss the plans for the day, and dinner. During the day everyone makes their own lunch. We cook mostly typical vegetarian and vegan meals, German and Italian. You have one day off per week. We look forward to sharing our days with you. I can answer any questions by e mail.
