We are a family with two children (born 2009 and 2013), we live in the woods and meadows in the Sabine Mountains, at an altitude of 520m, in a beautiful and isolated place, just 25 km from Rieti and nearly 100 from Rome. For several years we have cared for this land (5 ha), growing our own vegetables, planting trees, taking care of the fields and woods. We built two houses according to the principles of green building. S. works in the large family vegetable garden. She also teaches kids in the town, but the most important thing is to be with their own kids, who are at home, learn and work with us (home schooling). G. is a painter, and he takes care of the olive trees and the maintenance and construction works as well. Beside the main house, there is a small wooden house and next door is another stone house-room for guests (and WWOOFers). We would be happy to have some help: in the garden, with grass cutting, to clean up the trails in the forest and various other maintenance jobs. We welcome people who want to stay in a secluded and quiet place. We do not smoke, do not eat meat and we do not have TV. We have two cats. We would like to share our everyday life, knowledge and experience with others. Length of stay by prior arrangement. We eat mostly organic simple food. Languages spoken: mainly Italian but also English, French, Serbian and Hebrew.
