Basilicata

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.

This organic farm is 35 ha of tillable land, woodland, pasture, a fruit orchard and an olive grove. We transform all of our produce on the farm and we run courses on home production. There is always plenty to do; harvesting fruit, olives, vegetables, in the vegetable garden, fencing, clearing in the woods, cheese, bread, pasta, jam making and helping in the animal stalls. We live in a large house in the village and are happy to accommodate whoever wishes to share our life with us. We speak a little English, French and Spanish. Accommodation in room or mini apartment, meals are totally organic and vegetarian, stays of at least 10 days to a month, for longer stays we will arrange this after we have got to know each other. If you only want to come for a few days please do not contact us.

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.

We are on the border between Matera, Miglionico and Grottole, just over a twenty kilometers from Matera, UNESCO site and European Capital of Culture for 2019. The surrounding countryside is very impressive, with crops, trees and forests. Nearby, as well as picturesque villages, is the the WWF Oasis of San Giuliano, while 300 mt away Bosco Coste Grottole, the Bradano river and its tributary, the Bilioso river. The house where you will be accommodated is where I live (not always alone but often with friends from near and far). It is located in the middle of a park of a little less than 3 hectares. Of these, around 1.60 m has been recently planted as olive grove, with a some reforestation and a pond with an irrigation system which is still to be finished; the rest is a mixture of fruit trees and ornamental plants. The farm still grows mainly cereal crops. As I do not always live here time and length of stay must be agreed on before you come. In addition to traditional agricultural work, guests will be asked to help repair / restore the fence for poultry, help paint / maintain railings and so on. The accommodation, in single rooms, is comfortable and served by WIFI. I speak English and French fluently, and understand Spanish.
This is a farm of 35 hectares, situated on a hill at the foot of an oak forest, and protected to the north by a high mountain, Volturino, which comes right down to the stone houses, and there the oak forest stops and there are olive grove, a vineyard, apple orchard and fields of wheat and corn. To the south is the Agri valley, while to the east is the medieval village of Marsicovetere. Finally, there is wild pasture, an underground spring and a magic circle with a large oak tree in the centre. The farm is certified organic by ICEA and in recent years we have also been using biodynamic methods. We have horses and poultry and cultivate forage crops in rotation to help the soil fertility. The farm was also called La terra di Nancy and has been running for 20 years to promote the development of eco-friendly initiatives and human development. On this theme we also organize seminars and workshops aimed at achieving well being and also on the development of organic and biodynamic farming, maintenance of biodiversity, research and testing of energy saving building techniques. English spoken.
The Masseria is located on a hill 400 meters above sea level, 9 km from Matera. We have been pursuing organic and natural agriculture for thirty years without ever giving in to compromises, certification is the frame. The farm is characterized by being a small multi-sectoral agricultural and livestock farm: cereals, vegetables, orchards, olive groves, cattle and sheep grazing with free pasture and milk processing directly in our dairy with natural and manual methods. Our 'zoological garden' also consists of: sheep, pigs, goats, hens, rabbits, donkey and horse. Each with its own contribution makes our 'small' corner of the world a closed ecosystem that allows us to escape the logic of living in the larger world. My father has always lived on the farm, I am here at the end of every working day. We host wwoofers throughout the year except in periods of great tourist influx such as July - August - September and December. Given our multi-sectorial work in the farm are always many and different things to do: care of the garden, pruning, repair of fences for grazing, harvesting olives, containment of greenery, grafts, .... The area dedicated to the wwoofer is a small annex adjacent to our house, with bedroom and kitchen with a total of 3 or 4 beds. Meals will be shared with me and my father, but a little 'independence' will be possible when appropriate. In case the annex is occupied by tourists, we have a comfortable and spacious hostel in the plains. I chose to 'come back home’ after 2 years do something for myself, unpretentious, but with real desire to grow and improve.
