This farm is situated at an altitude of 500 ms in a cool wooded valley, surrounded by rocky peaks and ridges, sloping down to the sea and beaches, among the finest in the world. There is 12,000 meters of flat land with fruit and olive trees. I do not spend all my time here, but I want to increase the agricultural production for our own consumption and to have a place where musicians, artists and craftsmen can come and also people who are seeking a peaceful serene environment. There is a piano and other musical instruments. The house has offered hospitality for over 10 years, I need help to bring the rest of the olives and land into production, grow more varied vegetables, herbs and organic fruit, especially now before the summer. In September we make jams, and can tomatoes and vegetables. There's always plenty to do throughout the year. I'm not an expert farmer, but the vegetables and conserves have been a success. I speak French, Spanish, English, German, but I write very little. I do not have a computer, and there is no reception for mobile phones. For information and contacts please refer to the e mail indicated and leave your telephone number (preferably house phone) and I will call you back. There are all kinds of birds, day and night, and hedgehogs, dormice and other wild animals are often my guests. Throughout the valley you can hear the ringing of the sheep, cow, horse and goats bells as they that graze freely all around.
In the rugged scenery of the "Lucania" our little town of Vietri is a '"island" where we, immersed in the soul of this land, feel more alive. We are happy to accommodate those who want to try the simple and profound personal experience of living a return to nature: it is like moving back to past times, in the tranquility of a reality long forgotten or never known, far from a world that moves too fast and does not allow us to deviate. We are olive growers par excellence, lovers of extra virgin olive and tasters for passion and by profession. Driven by our love for the earth and totally involved in this experience, we are strong supporters of organic farming, and the importance of natural flavours to satisfy our taste and protect our good health. You are welcome!
We are an Italian German couple with two children (2009 & 2011). Our farm is situated in the hills 17 km from the city. We cultivate old varieties of cereals, legumes, vegetables, some herbs, olives, almonds and fruit trees using only organic methods and we are experimenting with permaculture. We make conserves from our fruit and vegetables. We have 2 donkeys, 5 goats, chickens and rabbits. The main jobs to be done are in the vegetable garden, weeding and harvesting, with the trees, pruning and collecting firewood, cleaning out the animals, making preserves and with small building jobs. Accommodation in a room or tent. We eat mainly our own produce and a bit of everything! English and German spoken.
